As the nation celebrates its 62nd year of Independence this year, Jacob’s, a biscuit brand under snacking powerhouse Mondelez International, aims to put a spotlight on some of Malaysia’s greatest icons in recognition of their accomplishments in being the first, the best, and the original of their crafts.

The late Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, the Father of Independence; the late Tan Sri P Ramlee, the silver screen legend; and Datuk Nicol David, the greatest woman squash player of all time, are some of the many iconic figures who have inspired Jacob’s to embark on its The Original Cream Cracker Celebrates Original Malaysians campaign in conjunction with Merdeka.

“Jacob’s biscuits have been in Malaysia for 66 years, even before Malaysia gained its Independence in 1957. Because of its long-standing presence in Malaysia, Jacob’s has always been known as the original cream cracker by consumers. The way we manufacture Jacob’s crackers may have evolved over time, but the one thing that has remained the same is its original recipe and distinctive taste, which our loyal fans know so well,” said Raja Zalina Raja Safran, Head of Corporate and Government Affairs, Mondelez International (Malaysia).

The story of the Original Malaysian icons is brought to ‘live’ through the fine craftsmanship that is engraved on Jacob’s Original Cream Cracker. Firstly, every action of the respective icon is sketched out, then carefully and meticulously laser engraved on Original Cream Cracker to capture each frame as a stop motion film. It is featured on both TV and digital platforms.

“Jacob’s The Original Cream Cracker Celebrates Original Malaysians campaign is our way of celebrating the rich history of our nation and looking back upon what has been accomplished thus far. This Merdeka, we could do with more of such reminders about all the things that make Malaysia great!” added Raja Zalina.
