  • Tajín 

As America continues to grow in diversity, multicultural lifestyles and flavors brought by other cultures continue driving all aspects of American life. Celebrating the varied flavor palette of a new America, Tajín, the #1 best-selling chili lime seasoning in the USA and Mexico, announced the launch of its latest brand campaign, “Tajín, as unique as you”. The new campaign will air nationally, featuring Tajín Clásico seasoning and its two distinct mild hot sauces, Tajín Mild Hot Sauce and Tajín Fruity Chamoy Sauce.The campaign, created by Tajín’s U.S. AOR, d expósito & Partners (DEX), consists of two distinct 30s TV spots, one for the diverse mass audience and another for Spanish-dominant Hispanics, each with their corresponding 15s ad versions. Each taps insights and cues in storytelling to enhance cultural relevance and engagement, but both feature a glimpse of “everyone’s” extended family members, reflecting the new Mainstream in American culture and the reality of Tajín’s diverse followers. The Spanish-language spot entitled “Comida en familia” showcases a multigenerational Hispanic family gathered around the dinner table as they demonstrate how each person enjoys Tajín. In it, characters like “La Jefa” and “La Tia Cool” exemplify the importance and admiration of women within the Hispanic family nucleus, while the “Spanglish” teen represents the now and the future, and the “Salsero” the one who sparks some fun-filled time at all family gatherings. The English-language spot, entitled “Friends Gathering” opens with “The party-starter” and features an ethnically diverse group of friends at a BBQ. In this version some folks are very familiar with Tajín, “The Adventurer” explores new ways of consuming it, and like “The First-Timer” some are trying it – and loving it – for the first time, seduced and enchanted by its unique flavor profile. 

For Tajín, the campaign needed to connect with the Hispanic audience that knows and is familiar with the brand and use of the product, as well as with the broader audience who discovers the uniqueness and versatility of the product. In addition to the TV :30s and :15s commercials, the “Tajín, as unique as you” campaign will have digital, social media and POS extensions.  Check out our interview with Luis Alfaro, Brand Leader, Tajin USA about Tajin’s overall U.S. marketing strategy.
