Conceptualized by The Womb for Godrej Yummiez, the ad film plays upon the sound associated with the product's crunch and crispiness in a light-hearted manner. The campaign focuses on the products’ crispiness while also communicating on being free from added preservatives and yet high on taste, leaving viewers with the message of ‘Yummiez mein Kuch Nahi Chupa Hai’.

Commenting on the new TVC, Abhay Parnerkar, chief executive officer, Godrej Tyson Foods, said, “As a brand, Godrej Yummiez has always launched products that have created a space for itself on shelves and in homes. Our latest product, Yummiez Crispy Potato Starz is high in taste and quality and does not have any added preservatives thus making it a safe & delicious snack. The uniqueness of the product lies in its crunch; this is exactly what our new TVC communicates. Given the product's new and exciting shape, we are certain it will become an instant potato-based snacking favorite for adults as well as kids.”
Dhaval Jadwani, joint head of account management, The omb, said, “Yummiez was one of the early entrants into ready to cook category, and has been a source of many quick and fun snacking experiences across the country. Being a category leader, it is incumbent on us to grow the category. With a clear understanding of the consumer’s biggest category barrier (Preservative) led us straight to our task – Demystify the current misconception around the category and the brand. IQF is a technology at our backend, however, for consumers, it means ‘guilt-free’ indulgence.”
