BATTLE CREEK, Mich., June 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 10 million Americans have to work on July 4th, forcing them to miss out on the biggest grilling holiday of the year.1 But this year, Incogmeato® by MorningStar Farms® and Heineken 0.0® are teaming up to deliver the cure for FOMO-GO – the fear of missing out on grilling out – letting people get in on the grilling action, even if they have to clock in.
Incogmeato and Heineken 0.0 combine two of the hottest trends this BBQ season – plant-based food2 and alcohol-free drinks3 – prompting Americans to rethink their grill-out go-to's, burger and beer, and opt for choices they can feel good about. The two brands created custom '4th for All' kits to surprise and satisfy American workers on the clock during the Fourth of July holiday. These kits contain juicy plant-based Incogmeato burgers that look, cook and taste like the real thing and compared to ground beef contains about the same amount of protein, but with 41% less saturated fat, making it a better but just as tasty option. What goes better with burgers than a refreshing beverage? Each kit also includes Heineken 0.0, which has 100% of the taste, but 0.0% of the alcohol.
"Incogmeato plant-based burgers and Heineken 0.0 are the next-gen burger and beverage combo making grilling more flavorful and accessible this summer," said Sara Young, General Manager, Plant-Based Proteins at Kellogg Company. "Our 4th For All Kits deliver the meaty, juicy and refreshing flavors in a way you can feel good about."
To spread the word, the brands are teaming up with influencers who know what it's like to work on holidays and have experienced firsthand what it feels like to miss out on grilling out. Starting Monday, influencers including Nurse Hadley (@nurse.hadley), Nurse Sugar (@mylifeassugar_), Dr. Erika (@doctordiaries) and U.S. military family Duana and Curt Cooper (@thecurlycoopers) are sharing on social how they're surprising co-workers and friends who know what it's like to have FOMO-GO with customized 4th For All Kits to make certain everyone gets to enjoy the excitement of the biggest grilling holiday of the year.
"Everyone should be able to participate in the best grilling occasion of the year, especially workers who work incredibly hard all year round," said Robert Hamilton, Senior Marketing Manager, HEINEKEN USA. "We hope these grilling kits make their holiday a little brighter — and better tasting! — with delicious twists on summer staples."
