ELMHURST, Ill.– Today, Bear Naked Custom Made® Granola announced the addition of an unbearably fun feature to its direct-to-consumer platform, www.BearNakedCustom.com. Visitors can now “bearify” a photo of themselves or a friend, donning accessories like mustaches, hats, wigs and more. They can also customize their own back-story and name the blend. Each creation is individually printed (and hand-blended) and shipped directly to the consumer.
“We’ve learned that customers love making their own granola blends, and now they are able to have even more fun by getting creative and personalizing their can,” said Wendy Davidson, President of Kellogg Specialty Channels, who led the development of Bear Naked Custom Made®.
Bear Naked Custom Made® offers a bevy of unique, curated ingredients. In addition to traditional ingredients like strawberries and pecans, people can choose from fixings like bourbon flavor, coffee brittle, sweet bacon sprinkles, lavender, chipotle oil, and red wine flavor—all of which are Non-GMO Project Verified. Bear Naked’s partnership with the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) helped to develop three original “chef blends” that fuel taste exploration, including “Olive You, Kale,” “Chocolate Strawberry Jalapeño,” and “Michigan Farms.” Bear Naked Custom Made® has also partnered with IBM Chef Watson, which helps guide consumers toward combinations of ingredients that are unique and likely to taste good. IBM Chef Watson leverages the power of cognitive computing and a deep understanding of the underlying chemistry of our ingredients.
Bear Naked Custom Made® also recently launched monthly subscriptions for customers who are looking to explore adventurous new blends every month. Blends include White Wine Sangria, Mexican Hot Chocolate, Sweet Heat, and Irish Coffee. A variety of subscription packages are offered between three months to 12 months with fees ranging from $16.99/mo. to $18.99/mo.
