With Abbott’s Village Bakery’s newest addition, we had to create a slice of fruit loaf legend by smothering this launch campaign with toasted buttery goodness and exceptional taste sampling figures on top.
Our client’s essential touch points were:
to be eye-catching and prominent
to compel consumers to enthusiastically try the product, then and there
to inspire participants to talk about the experience
to tie the activation in with the current TVC
Hitting the brief, and the senses!
Giant-sized apple, pear and apricot stands, dreamed and developed by 5iveSenses, conveyed the message of the main ingredients while the serving bench within each stand was a toast-shaped cut-out. To really nail the healthy ingredient message, we created a market-garden appeal by surrounding the stands with basket upon basket of fresh fruit.
Once consumers had their hot, delicious sample of Abbott’s Village Bakery Fruit Loaf in hand, they could move to an inviting outdoor dining area within the stands.
A complimentary buttery treat in one hand and a free, fresh coffee in the other? It’s a moment to remember!
The key to making this sense the winner was to deliver the sample, hot and crunchy. We toasted on-site, applying enough butter to enhance the fruity flavour while teaming it with a quality roasted coffee. Strict hygiene measures were in place even though the activation was well before the days of a pandemic.
To many, many noses the captivating aroma of fruit toast is impossible to resist. This was obviously the case with consumers following the toasty, fruity bouquet – and the obviously growing word of mouth – with queues for Abbott’s Village Bakery Fruit Loaf lasting throughout the day.
