Study shows that Hispanics lead the way when it comes to celebrating holiday traditions; blending American and Latino flavors is their favorite part
PR Newswire, DES MOINES, IOWA – October 11, 2016
Even though the big holidays usually get the spotlight, there are many everyday moments big or small worth celebrating throughout the fall and winter months. This is why the National Pork Board (NPB) today launched the “Sabrosos Momentos” campaign aimed at celebrating those joyous every day, and sometimes humorous, moments of the season. To bring these moments to life, the NPB has partnered with three of the most recognizable social media celebrities and digital talents in the country today: LeJuan James, Los Pichy Boys and David Lopez.
The celebrity influencers will capture their own pork-centric “Sabrosos Momentos” with a comical and unique Latino twist. The first video by the Cuban duo “Los Pichy Boys” will zero in on the cast of characters that make up a typical Latino family at any get-together. In November, LeJuan James will release a video that centers on how he welcomes unexpected guests; and in December, David Lopez’s video will highlight a humorous interpretation of how Latinos combine new and old traditions.
In addition, Angelica Vale, renowned Mexican actress, comedian, singer and pork lover, will kick off the campaign this week with a media event in Miami where she will share her own “Sabrosos Momentos.”
FOR LATINOS, PORK IS KING DURING THE HOLIDAYS
Hispanics lead the way when it comes to celebrating holiday traditions – and pork is at the center of those celebrations. In fact, a recent survey conducted by the NPB confirms that food and tradition are a strong part of Hispanic culture. Hispanics are more enthusiastic about holiday traditions than the general population, with 62 percent citing they enjoy making traditional recipes during the holidays. Creativity in blending cultures also plays a part, with 52 percent saying that their favorite part of Thanksgiving is combining American and Latino foods and recipes.
“Pork is a staple at every Latino household, whether it is a daily meal for your family or at a celebration,” said Jose de Jesus, director of multicultural marketing at the National Pork Board. “That is why in addition to the humorous and engaging videos, we will unveil delicious, easy-to-make pork recipe ideas and quick how-to recipe videos to help consumers impress family and friends anytime throughout the fall and winter months.”
