Santa Monica, CA, August 14, 2018 — A new advertising campaign for Dole Fruit Bowls® in 100% Juice launches today, spotlighting a new trend of writing and drawing on the lid of the product. A heartwarming 30-second spot, "Traditions," brings to life one Mom's tradition of using Dole Fruit Bowls to connect with her daughter. The spot, created by ad agency RPA, allows people to see themselves and their relationships in the stories we tell via Dole Fruit Bowls, and inspires them to facilitate those connections in their own lives.

"Our Fruit Bowls in 100% juice are made with years of expertise and history," said Stan Stuka, Senior Marketing Director, Dole Packaged Foods. "This new campaign will stand out with its heartfelt reminder to parents to give a little extra love with their kids' snacks."

The spot shows a mom writing notes on the lid of the Fruit Bowls that her daughter finds throughout all stages of her life. At the end, her daughter grows up and carries on the tradition by using one of the Fruit Bowls to share some big news with her mom.

"People trust in the quality of Dole products, and Fruit Bowls in 100% Juice bring about nostalgia for people's own childhood experiences," said Joe Baratelli, EVP, Chief Creative Officer at RPA. "What better way to illustrate this than to create an ad that comes full circle."

"Traditions" will air on cable and network TV channels, including Food Network, Freeform, HGTV, TNT, USA and more.
