JOLLY Dominates Market Share on Its 20th Anniversary

After celebrating its 20th anniversary recently, JOLLY Food Line, the first owned brand of Fly Ace Corporation, has successfully dominated the local market for its two products: JOLLY Mushrooms and JOLLY Corn.

According to the consumer panel study by Kantar World from February 2016 to January 2017, JOLLY Mushrooms and JOLLY Corn earned the No. 1 spot in the canned food categories in terms of value and volume shares.
Fly Ace AVP for Marketing Abigail Ng-Reyes attributed the success of the company venture to aggressive marketing campaigns and to the collaborative team efforts among management, employees, trade partners, and consumers who have remained loyal with JOLLY throughout the years.

JOLLY Food Line now offers a variety of 24 mixed of canned vegetable and fruit products. During its grand anniversary celebration held recently at Solaire Resort and Casino, JOLLY presented its newest brand endorser, actress and TV host Maine Mendoza.

“Celebrating 20 years in the business is indeed a remarkable milestone for the company as it has reasserted JOLLY and Fly Ace’s commitment to provide consumers with accessible and affordable premium-grade canned fruits and vegetables. Since its launch in 1997, we are proud that JOLLY has thrived to become a consistent market leader, the top-of-mind choice among Filipino households,” she said.

To reinforce JOLLY’s leading market positioning, Reyes said the company has plans to further diversify its canned vegetable and fruit by exploring key market trends in the coming years.

“Beyond the 20th year, Fly Ace Corp. will continue efforts to maintain the relevance of the brand to the consumers, for them to consistently trust the brand and for us to continue improving what we are offering, in terms of product innovation as a way of giving better value to our consumers. Our growth prospects remain high, and we are very upbeat that we can achieve our long-term visions,” Reyes concluded.

Auntie Anne’s, Robinsons Galleria

We’ve dropped by Auntie Anne’s in Robinsons Galleria twice last week per my son’s request. We’ve ordered the following on those two visits: Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel, Cheese Pretzel Dog, Two-Cheese Pepperoni Nuggets and Old Fashioned Lemonade.

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel, Php75.00

My son’s ultimate favorite specialty pretzel from Auntie Anne’s is Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel. It’s a soft pretzel with a chewy crust sprinkled with cinnamon powder and sugar, served fresh from the oven. He would have had an extra order of this delectable pretzel had he got his way. That’s how much he loves it!

Cheese Pretzel Dog, Php115.00

Cheese Pretzel Dog is our newest favorite treat from Auntie Anne’s. It’s a pretzel stuffed with hotdog and cheese. As you can see, the hotdog is longer than the pretzel!

And Look at that gooey cheese! So sorry for the blurry photo, though.

Two-Cheese Pepperoni Nuggets, Php99.00

We also tried one of their bite-sized pretzels, the Two-Cheese Pepperoni Nuggets. It was also a delight to munch on these, but the combination of the cheese and peperoni was a bit salty for us. We’ll try other pretzel nuggets next time.

Old Fashioned Lemonade (Large), Php80.00

I personally think that all of Auntie Anne’s pretzels are best paired with their Old Fashioned Lemonade. It’s so cool and refreshing, tangy and sweet but not overly so.

Expect us again, Auntie Anne’s!
