Product – Digorno Pizza and Bread Sticks
Price – Typically $8.49 on sale for $6.99
Place – Bloomington Cub Foods at 11:30 am.
Promotion – This was a pizza breadstick combo that I saw in the freezer in the pizza aisle at the grocery store. The packaging stuck out to because it was so large. The box is red a light yellow with a pepperoni pizza warm on the left and breadsticks to the right. It sticks out among all the other pizza packages that are smaller and just have a pizza on the front. I bought it, even though it was expensive because it looked interesting and delicious. Digorno likely invested more into this packaging to woo customers to this item. I thought that it was an example of co-branding, but both the breadsticks and pizza are made by Digorno.
