Stouffer’s, a producer of popular name brand ready meals and side dishes marketed in North America, is now in the clothing, accessories and Christmas stocking stuffer business too – at least temporarily. The Solon, Ohio, USA-headquartered Nestlé company has opened an online merchandise store filled with items designed “to bring comfort and joy this holiday season.”
A press released issued on November 17 lists merchandise that ranges from cozy adult onesies for “wearing your lasagna love from head to toe,” to “warm sleeping bags perfect for catching some mac & z’s,” to blankets made for “canoodling.”
For readers who may be unfamiliar the Stouffer’s frozen product line, suffice to say that Lasagna with Meat & Sauce and Macaroni & Cheese are among the popular offerings.
The merchandise collection has been assembled to put the “fun in functional,” according to the Stouffer’s PR team. Online shoppers can choose from comfy lounge wear adorned with lasagna or creamy mac & cheese prints, kitchen essentials like coffee mugs for making a statement without saying anything, accessories for layering up and more.
“Over the past year, our fans have been asking about branded merchandise – so we went to work creating items that really double down on comfort and taste – the heart of our brand,” said Megan McLaughlin, brand marketing manager at Stouffer’s. “It was a no-brainer to deliver even more comfort and coziness at a time when people need it most.”
Christmas stocking stuffers, being promoted as “Stocking Stouffer’s,” include “Sea of Cheese” 500-piece jigsaw puzzles, gripper socks “to keep you from sliding like a slippery noodle” and “hair scrunchies to tame your own layers.”
Among items in the “Lasagna Department” merchandise line are “Layer Up” sweatshirts and sweatpants, “Live. Laugh. Love. Lasagna” t-shirts, “Too Hot to Handle” oven mits, and “Use Your Noddle” pom beanies.
Meanwhile, the “Mac & Cheese Department” is serving up “Mac Me So Happy” allover print hooded sweatshirts, “Let’s Canoodle” Sherpa fleece blankets, “Poodles of Noodles” pocket t-shirts, “Cheese on the Eyes” aprons, and more.
