7 Brands Ready for a Merry Christmas
Below we present the top brands across seven different holiday categories. For the full details, and to see which other brands made the cut, download our full report.
Baking is an important part of many holiday traditions. Pillsbury was the baking brand shoppers most associate with the holidays, with Nestlé close behind.
Coca-Cola blew away the competition as the beverage brand most associated with Christmas, with 507 agents mentioning it. Swiss Miss was a distant second at 129 mentions.
Seventy-one percent of agents surveyed said they are at least moderately likely to drink coffee on Christmas Eve or Day. They also said they're most likely to drink Starbucks, followed by Folgers.
At 19% and 18%, respectively, Blue Moon and Bud Light were neck and neck in the race for most popular Christmas beer among people likely to drink on the holiday.
Forty-two percent of parents with daughters plan to give them cosmetics this Christmas. When we asked parents what brands their girls are most likely to unwrap, e.l.f. was (ironically) the top choice, followed by Covergirl.
When it comes to stocking stuffers, candy reigns supreme. Seventy-eight percent of parents who plan to fill stockings for their kids will include candy. M&M's will be the most popular choice, with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups taking second place.
Yes, batteries. We surveyed our agents not only on the gifts and food they'll purchase this Christmas, but also on the CPGs that make the holidays happen from behind the scenes. Duracell barely edged out Energizer as the top Christmas battery.
