While Nutella has over 90% awareness, household penetration is much lower.

As a result, we were tasked with showcasing ways the brand's target market – moms – can make…

These are called OFF periods, and more than a third of the one million PwPs in the U.S. contend with them.OFF manifests in different ways. For some, it is shaking. For others, it…
