Through Food52, AEB will reach 2.8+ million social media followers with a GIF and infographic that highlight ways you can turn beautiful and delicious desserts into gifts for your loved ones this holiday season, including Chocolate Cookies, Blondies Poppy Seed Muffins and more.

To celebrate National Cookie Day, the Incredible Egg Social channels shared a plethora of different cookie recipes to help consumers enjoy the sweetness of the holiday season. From Ginger Spice to Chocolate Peppermint Crinkles to classic Sugar Cookies, the possibilities are endless – thanks to the incredible egg.

Media outreach is also delivering holiday recipes to national earned media outlets, giving their readers easy, but tasty ways to elevate the holiday season. From tips on getting a fast and nutritious breakfast before a day of gift shopping, or appetizers you can make in 30 minutes or less, to brunch ideas using holiday leftovers, AEB is serving up ways to make the holidays all the more enjoyable for consumers.

PROMOTING THE STROKE STUDY
Funded by AEB’s ENC, the Stroke Study by Dominik Alexander continues to gain momentum since its October release. The study, which highlights that eating one egg per day can reduce the risk of stroke by 12%, has been featured in numerous media outlets including The Telegraph, The Sun, Nature World News and Economic Times among others, with the latest article in Medical Daily, in which Alexander was quoted saying "Eggs do have many positive nutritional attributes, including antioxidants, which have been shown to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation. They are also an excellent source of protein, which has been related to lower blood pressure."

Following the national distribution of the press release, AEB continues to share the study results with health and nutrition reporters, garnering additional coverage among consumer-focused media outlets. More than 500 health professionals also received the information to leverage in communications with consumers.

The study has also been spotlighted on ENC’s blog, as well as via a Q&A with Dr. Tia Rains, to discuss the implications of the study and why it is important for consumers.
CAPITALIZING ON THE NEWS
Throughout the year, AEB capitalizes on egg-related stories already trending with the media and uses these opportunities to share key messages AND reconnect with key media contacts. One such story was the 117th birthday of Emma Morano, credited as the world’s oldest living person.

Emma credits her longevity to eating eggs and during her life she has eaten more than 100,000 eggs. Including posts on CNN, The New York Times and the Skimm, her story appeared in more than 57 online clips in 21 states and appeared in 6 broadcast clips in 4 states with a reach of +25M.
