Advertising

The snack is still well known by some for its early 1980s ad campaign starring Sandy Duncan.[2] A more recent commercial aired during Super Bowl XLVI featuring Brian and Stewie from the animated sitcom Family Guy, in which Stewie puts emphasis on the "H" in "Wheat," saying instead, "Hwheat Thins."[3] Other recent marketing for the brand has focused on targeting younger consumers by giving away products at youth-oriented events such as college football games, and heavily utilizing social media.[4]
