Calling all mood managers, snack stashers and hanger-hampering experts! You could have the hanger squashing skills to be Nutri-Grain's first-ever Head of Hanger Management

CHICAGO, May 6, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Nothing is more predictably unpredictable than hangry moments throughout the day. With over 1.2 billion views on TikTok1, #hangry is a universal experience we all face, whether it's your kids, your partner, or even yourself. Thankfully, hanger doesn't stand a chance against new Nutri-Grain® Power-Fulls soft baked oat bites – now available in Strawberry and Chocolate Chip flavors.

With a good source of protein and 8 grams of whole grains in every serving, this new Nutri-Grain lineup is the perfect on-the-go, low-mess snacking solution that can power up the whole family and stop hanger before it starts. To celebrate the launch of its most hanger-hampering snack yet, Nutri-Grain is conducting a nationwide promotional contest in search of a "Head of Hanger Management" — an individual who excels at preventing hangriness before it happens — just like new Nutri-Grain Power-Fulls.

After all, Nutri-Grain knows that successfully managing hangry outbursts in your household can feel like a full-time job — that's why you deserve to get paid for it. One qualified candidate will be selected and receive $20,000 as a part of the prestigious title, plus a year's supply of Nutri-Grain Power-Fulls to be prepared for hangry moments all year long.

The title certainly has its perks, but it takes the right qualifications to take on the responsibility of sharing hanger-preventing expertise with the masses. To spread their knowledge, the winning candidate will collaborate with Nutri-Grain to produce social content highlighting their best hanger management tips and tricks and help brainstorm Nutri-Grain product innovation ideas that further combat hangriness.

"Nutri-Grain has been families' go-to breakfast bar for over 30 years. Now with Nutri-Grain Power-Fulls, we're providing a simple protein-backed solution to prevent hangriness before it strikes, no matter the time or place," said Eileen Flaherty, Brand Marketing Director at Kellanova. "We want to reward our first-ever Head of Hanger Management for their prowess and share their hanger prevention tips and tricks with the masses."

Think you have what it takes? From May 6 to June 14, visit and complete an entry form demonstrating your personality and creative solutions for tiding over hangry friends or family members. The first-ever Head of Hanger Management will be selected by July 1, 2024, but there's no need to wait – new Nutri-Grain Power-Fulls soft baked oat bites are available at retailers nationwide now, so you can seamlessly manage hanger in your own household with or without the title.
