New Zealand dairy company Fonterra has created a new yoghurt tailored for men, filled with fruit, seeds, grains and barley, under the brand name Mammoth Supply Co. Its marketing plays on social stereotypes of what’s considered “manly,” including labeling that reads: “This is a men’s yoghurt and you are a man. Now find a spoon, fork, or spade and dig in.” Television and radio advertisements for the product are narrated by The Big Lebowski actor Sam Elliott, who reads in his deep voice that “men can eat yoghurt — just as long as it’s thick and chunky and built to tame a man’s hunger.”
