In the fall of 2020, while most grocery brands we're turning out sadvertising, No Frills did something different. We turned out an original 12-track album of bangin' tracks. While a free download was provided with every subscription to No Frills’ text program, a limited number of albums were hand-pressed and sold out in mere hours. Better yet, Jimmy Fallon himself confused No Frills with a band on the Tonight Show, starting a beef of epic proportions and quadrupling the resale value of Haulin' State of Mind.
