Now loose juice is back in the hoose

18 April, 2008

Cadbury Trebor Bassett is backing the relaunch of its Maynards Wine Gums TV ad, which first screened in 1991, with a 2.4 million marketing spend.

Reviving the original jingle, "there's juice loose aboot this hoose", the ad features a dancing Scotsman and will be shown in 10 and 30 second bursts this month, with a second wave

in August.

In-store POS, posters, shelf-edge wobblers and dump bins with motion activated sound boxes will be available to independent retailers.

Trade communications manager Kate Harding said: "We

expect to see a real resurgence in Maynards Wine Gums' popularity.

" She added the decision to revive the ad follows an "overwhelming response" from customers when it was shown in research groups .

When Bordeaux was in fashion, it seemed almost logical that we should fetishise winemakers. Here were people responsible for brilliant acts of blending, across large estates and multiple grape varieties, including superstars such as cabernet sauvignon and merlot. These days, fashion has moved on and pinot noir is ascendant. As a result, the star of the winemaker has fallen and we find ourselves following a new star in the sky: terroir.
