The giveaway indicates a move by the company to capitalize on the recent popularity of its products as a breakfast meal during the coronavirus pandemic.
Nearly 60% of parents are serving their kids Mac & Cheese for breakfast more often during COVID-19 related lockdowns than previous months, Kraft said.
"We’ve learned Kraft Mac & Cheese isn’t just for dinner,” says Kraft Heinz brand manager Kelsey Cooperstein.
Each box encompasses a placemat for kids to color on, a magnet with breakfast topping suggestions, like crumbled sausage, bacon or scrambled eggs, and a mug for serving. During the limited release, Kraft is also replacing “dinner” with “breakfast” on its blue box of macaroni & cheese.
Consumers who use the hashtags will get an automatic reply with a direct link to see if they were a winner. However, consumers can also enter the contest online.
Kraft says it will donate 10 boxes to leading global hunger relief organization Feed the Children for every #KMCforBreakfast on Twitter up to 1 million boxes.
