Share Some Love this Holiday Season with Kraft PB Bear Hugs!


Canadians love Kraft Peanut Butter and the iconic Crunchy and Smoothie Bears. They are a symbol of togetherness and nostalgia in Canada. This holiday season, Kraft PB is leveraging the beloved bears to help champion togetherness in the lives of Canadians through the simple act of a bear hug – one whose impact can be felt more than 3,000 kilometres across the country.

To do this, Kraft PB brought two 10-foot-tall versions of Crunchy and Smoothie to Toronto’s Union Station and Vancouver’s CF Pacific Centre and captured the power a bear hug can have first-hand in an online video. Just give one bear a squeeze and the other’s bowtie will light up to let family and friends know you’re thinking of them! Check out this video:

Canadians also have a chance to win their own pair of Wi-Fi-enabled Kraft PB BearHug Bears by sharing who they would send a bear hug to and using #KraftBearHugs on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Contest entry until December 31, 2017.

Melanoma is one of the top seven most frequent occurring cancers in Canada and is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in youth ages 15-29. You are at a higher risk of developing melanoma if you have one or more of the following characteristics: prolonged exposure to UV radiation including outdoor sun and artificial UV radiation (tanning beds, sun lamps); severe blistering, sunburns before the age of 20; a family history of melanoma; more than 50 moles on your body; moles with unusual shape or colour; skin that tends to burn; fair or freckled skin; red or blonde hair and blue eyes; or a weakened immune system.

Melanoma can be a deadly form of cancer, but if diagnosed early, it is often treatable. It is one of few cancers that is preventable and is visible to the naked eye.
