Beverly Hills 90210 star promoting produce brands

torTori Spelling, mompreneur, beauty brands influencer and iconic star of Beverly Hills 90210, has announced The Produce Moms as part of her June Celebrity Gift Box @celebritygiftbox give-a-way on her Instagram site @torispelling, which has 1.5M followers.  Spelling will feature and endorse The Produce Moms as her tried and true consumer media brand for information about fresh fruits and vegetables.  The winner of Spelling’s June Celebrity Gift Box will receive a TPM Apron and Crunch Pak coupons.  The winner of the gift box will also receive a cooler filled with Crunch Pak products.

“I love what Lori and The Produce Moms are doing to get kids to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables!  There is no website and community like The Produce Moms,” said Spelling.  “I look forward to encouraging my followers to join me in being one of The Produce Moms.  It’s my go-to for getting my family excited about fruits and vegetables!”  

“When Tori’s representative contacted us about Tori’s desire to promote The Produce Moms on her Instagram, we were very open to the idea,” said Lori Taylor, founder and CEO of The Produce Moms.  “Tori has a very wide appeal across several generations from her days on Beverly Hills 90210, to her role producing and starring in the recent 90210 spin-off show, to her current role as both a mom and beauty influencer.  She is successfully engaging with the target audience for TPM, and we are happy to be a part of her social media efforts, as well as her June Celebrity Gift  Box.”  

“When we launched our co-branded packaging with The Produce Moms, we knew the brand would connect with women and moms interested in consuming more fruits and vegetables," said Tony Freytag, executive vice president and co-founder of Crunch Pak. "The inclusion and promotion of Crunch Pak’s TPM branded line on @torispelling and in her June Favorites Box helps us expand the scope of this packaging.  Tori’s following on Instagram is exactly the ideal demographic for this product.”
