Whisps Seeks The Next Big Cheese For Its Cheese Board

Whisps Seeks The Next Big Cheese For Its Cheese Board

Wednesday, June 24th, 2020

Sing with me now: Sweet dreams are made of Whisps, who am I to disagree? The cheese crisps snacking company is certainly what dreams are made of, especially now that it plans to accelerate its expansion into new markets with a new campaign. The hunt for the “Big Cheese” began yesterday, as Whisps took to the web to find one lucky winner to join its Whisps Cheese Board.

Ilana Fischer, Chief Executive Officer, Whisps Snacks"As Whisps' original cheese fanatic, I was able to make my cheese dream a reality: making—and eating—delicious, quality cheese snacks," said Ilana Fischer, CEO. "I'm excited to find someone who loves cheese as much as me and my team to help us evaluate different cheeses to explore for innovation in the future. Plus, I'm excited to make someone else's dream a reality!"

This Big Cheese will join the tasting group, the Whisps Cheese Board, and be paid upwards of $5,000—all while eating cheese for a year! (I know that I’m probably disqualified, but wow, can I win?) The winner will be selected July 25 of this year, after which they will join the Board in monthly product quality tests, flavor evaluations, and brainstorming new product ideas, a press release explained.

Perks for the Big Cheese include—and I’ll try not to get too jealous here—the following:

  • Eat Cheese: The Whisps Cheese Board member will receive monthly shipments of Whisps Cheese Crisps to their door each month and secret flavors sent throughout the year. They'll also receive curated cheese boards and cheese wheels from Whisps' exclusive providers for tasting feedback
  • Mingle with the 'Mongers: The winner will receive $2,000 cash to attend the World Cheese Championship in 2022, the place to be if you call yourself a true cheesehead
  • Learn New Skills: The winner will also be trained by an artisan cheesemonger in how to better evaluate cheeses and Whisps, plus attend a virtual cheese class to learn how to make the perfect charcuterie board
  • Look Gouda: Lastly, the winner will receive all the swag and gear needed to rock their cheese love proudly

This sounds like the perfect gig. The campaign’s uniqueness also positions Whisps as an exciting and approachable partner for consumers—a continuing trend in both specialty food and elsewhere.
