ColdStone Creamery Nigeria and Domino’s Pizza have transcended beyond serving delicious ice cream and pizza, to becoming lifestyle brands. “To this end we are always on the lookout for opportunities such as this; Lara and the beat is a perfect fit as it has key elements that resonate with our brand: lifestyle, fashion and music. The beautiful story of the movie inspired a new ice cream flavor named “Baby cakes” a term of endearment used by the lead character “Lara Giwa” in the movie. This new flavor is a delicious strawberry ice-cream layered with yellow cake and topped with a crunchy coconut shavings,” said Bimpe Olanrewaju, Marketing Manager of ColdStone Creamery.
“Baby Cakes would be selling at every Cold Stone Creamery store in Nigeria from today 17th of July 2018. We look forward to welcoming everyone with their loved ones to any of our outlets to enjoy this exclusive new flavour,” she added.
According to Biola Alabi, Executive Producer of Lara and the Beat, “This partnership should come as no surprise, the ColdStone brand were our partners on our first movie project, and they have distinguished themselves by creating unique, fun, family experiences for Nigerians, as soon as you walk into any of their stores they make you feel warm and welcome, which is exactly how this film will make you feel. Lara and the Beat is a movie about family and friendship, so partnering with these delightful brands only made sense for us to do.”
“We at Domino’s pizza are very excited to partner with Lara and the Beat on this unique project, bringing to life a complete story that radiates fun, family and togetherness,” said Ilyas Kazeem, Marketing Manager of Domino’s Pizza.
“This is why we are dedicating a new and special menu to this movie called the “Squad Meal”. This menu celebrates the importance of love, friendship and the joy of sharing. It consists of a Medium Pizza, Chicken Wings and our delicious Melted Choco Pocket dessert for just NGN5,000,” he added.
