“We love having pasta and ribs on romantic evenings,” shares Cheska Garcia Kramer, who loves surprising her husband with homemade dinners. 

According to this mom of three, Conagra Brands has helped her discover what cooking is all about. “I wouldn’t call myself a whiz in the kitchen, but with brands like Hunt’s, preparing great-tasting meals is practically effortless,” she says.

Conagra Brands’ roster of quality products includes Hunt’s tomato products, Libby’s Vienna sausage and corned beef, PAM cooking spray, Peter Pan peanut butter, Act II popcorn, Snack Pack pudding and gels, Reddi Wip whipped cream and Blue Bonnet margarine. 

“Conagra Brands carries many familiar and favorite products—some of which you probably already have in your pantry,” says Floribel Loreto-Lao, Conagra Brands Philippines country manager.

Celebrity moms Danica Sotto-Pingris, Xandra Rocha-Araneta, Chesca Garcia-Kramer, Kelly Misa, and Bianca Santiago-Reinoso with Conagra Brands officials sales manager Melanie Ocnilla, business development manager Patti De Guzman, country manager Flo Loreto-Lao, and marketing manager Cathy Castro.
Kramer reveals she uses Hunt’s Pasta and BBQ sauce to make meals without breaking a sweat, so much so, “I can keep myself fresh and flawless for our date.”

She continues, “Hunt’s is my go-to for quick and easy solutions in the kitchen, because it lets me cook restaurant-style dishes like I’m a real chef!”

Kramer also loves serving Act II popcorn during movie nights at home. “It’s part of our family tradition to snack on Act II during movie time at home. It’s an instant, easy way to make your living room feel like a cinema,” she says. “My kids always light up when I prepare Act II, so it always makes me feel like supermom. I also love how light it is—I can mindlessly munch without any guilt, enjoying a nice snack with my family.”

Danica Sotto Pingris, actress, host, and rising YouTube chef, finds that Conagra products are a worthy addition to her kitchen arsenal. As a mother of two school-age children, she is familiar with the task for preparing baon for them every day. 

“Since my kids love Libby’s Vienna Sausages, I cook it for their baon all the time. Libby’s Corned Beef makes a great and tasty breakfast too, it’s such a staple in our household.”

 She also finds herself reaching for convenient and delicious Snack Packs to make lunchboxes both fun and healthy. “I love how Snack Pack gives me a way to feed my kids fruits. Since you can easily mix in fresh fruits to give the pudding some extra flavor, it’s a perfect baon treat that will give kids the nutrition they need!” enthuses Pingris.

Conagra Brands roster of products includes Blue Bonnet margarine, Reddi Wip whipped cream, Libby’s Corned Beef, Hunt’s Original BBQ sauce, and Snack Pack Chocolate Pudding.
When it comes to preparing snacks and desserts for the family, Peter Pan peanut butter is another one of her favorites. “I love how versatile it is,” she gushes. “It’s always a hit when I spread it on pancakes, make it a dip for my homemade granola bars, or simply put it on bananas.”

As a model, food enthusiast, and host, Xandra Rocha Araneta’s busy schedule and energetic family keep her on her toes, too, which is why she enjoys leisurely weekend brunch at home. 

“My go-to meal is always Libby’s Corned Beef,” she says. “I add in tons of onions and tomatoes. My husband likes it a little crunchy, so I let the corned beef crisp up in the pan before serving. We enjoy it with fluffy scrambled eggs and garlic fried rice.”

When she’s baking, Araneta loves how convenient it is to have products like PAM Cooking Spray handy. “Just a couple sprays of PAM on the pan, and my baking sessions are hassle-free!” she says. 

 “I’ve found that using Blue Bonnet margarine makes for a great alternative to butter that’s still delicious!” she adds. 

“To complete my baked goodies, I also like to top it all off with a generous dollop of low-calorie Reddi Wip. Who says that delicious desserts can’t be guilt-free?”

Conagra Brands’ products are available at supermarkets nationwide.
