New Wellington’s Tomato Sauce – Thicker, Redderer, Tomatoeyer

Wellington’s have released a new tomato sauce recipe and we shot some TV ads to tell people about it. Or rather, to let kids, as the connoisseurs of tomato sauce, tell us what they think about it.

“Tasting Panel” features some pretty independent-minded kids reviewing “Wellies”. “Time To Say Goodbye” is definitive proof that Wellies is delicious enough to say goodbye forever to the old tomato sauce.

Wellies is “thicker, redderer, tomatoeyer” and undoubtedly on its way to becoming South Africa’s new favourite.
