Planters | “Shake It Like Dad”

Mr. Peanut is teaming up with actor Anthony Anderson for an original song called “Shake It Like Dad.” The ditty shellebrates all the quirks that dads have to offer, with a nod to their dad jokes. I mean, who wouldn’t be worried about calendars… their days are numbered.
In addition to giving pops props through song, Planters wants to know how your dad adds substance to your life in the #NutsForDad challenge.

Carvel | 1-833-FUDGIE1
Carvel’s Fudgie the Whale ice cream cake has long been a Father’s Day tradition. Fudgie, who was created in 1977, is celebrating the holiday with a few nostalgic throwbacks that play homage to Fudgie’s origin story.
Remember those classic Fudgie the Whale Father’s Day commercials? They’re back for a whale of a dad, complete with a “call us!” hotline. Dial 1-833-FUDGIE1 and listen in to a series of punny dad jokes. A re-creation of founder Tom Carvel’s gravelly voice is heard on the other end. He’ll even share how fans can get a Fudgie the Whale cake for Father’s Day!
Fudgie the Beer, a limited-edition line of signature beers brewed in partnership with Captain Lawrence Brewing Company, is also making its grand return. Brewed with Carvel’s signature chocolate Crunchies, this creamy stout is the perfect drink to toast dad on his big day. Pair it with a Fudgie the Whale cake and enjoy — bottoms up!
