The Challenge

The Cadbury range of Mondelēz is known for its scrumptiousness and has been the taste of Indian consumers in the chocolate category for seven decades now. Mondelēz India expands its Choco-bakery segment with the launch of ‘Cadbury Chocobakes’ – a scrumptious cookie filled with the taste of the iconic Cadbury at its heart. The association of the brand with spreading joy and the flavor of its chocolate in a cookie is the primary selling point. The campaign needed a push-start to reach the target audience in a way they would love to receive it. Much like how you would feel when you discover your most loved Cadbury, only now in a cookie!

The Solution

Cadbury Chocobakes reached and engaged audiences where they were most active and could interact with it – Mobile. Mondelēz, Wavemaker and InMobi built an interactive in-app video advertising campaign to unravel the secret of the cookie to its consumers.
