Mars Wrigley Confectionery India today launched a new variant of its much-loved chocolate brand SNICKERS®. The all-new SNICKERS® ALMONDS offers a base of nougat and crushed almonds, topped with a layer of diced almond mixed with caramel and enrobed with chocolate.
Traditionally associated with boosting brain power, Almonds have always been a favourite of every Indian home. SNICKERS® ALMOND builds on this and highlights that hunger leads to forgetfulness which further leads to all kinds of irresponsible behavior. Therefore for every hungry brain SNICKERS® ALMOND is the answer.
The tagline ‘No Bhook. No Bhoolna’ takes a spin on the brand’s global proposition of ‘Who Are You When You Are Hungry? and urges people to step up and take responsibility in their respective spheres of daily life. The launch of the new variant will be supported by television, digital & outdoor campaign, each of which will resonate with the idea of ‘You Become Forgetful When You Are Hungry’. The campaign reaches out to the brand’s millennial audiences by addressing everyday situations that are relevant to them. Whether it is reaching out to post on social media when someone is in trouble, or people not owning up to their responsibilities, the new campaign reflects how hunger causes forgetfulness leading to irresponsible and irrational actions and behaviors.
Talking about the launch of SNICKERS® ALMOND, Yogesh Tewari, Marketing Director, Mars Wrigley Confectionery, said, “As a brand, SNICKERS® has always built on the proposition of ‘You Are Not You When You Are Hungry’ and this time, we wanted to bring in the angle of responsible behavior with SNICKERS® ALMOND. The campaign focuses on the goodness of almonds for hunger satisfaction and talks about stopping all kinds of irresponsible behavior. The product is a new, delicious twist to an all-time consumer favorite, and we are confident that SNICKERS® ALMOND will be well received by consumers across the country.”
Two new thirty-second TVCs have been introduced as part of the campaign, that will also be amplified digitally through online video bumpers of six seconds each. Each TVC focuses on a real life situation where people have forgotten their basic responsibilities as good citizens because hunger has taken over their minds.
The first TVC sees a man in a gym running on a malfunctioning treadmill while everyone around him is capturing his plight on their smartphones. ‘When people are hungry, they forget how to behave’ he claims and gives the people standing by a SNICKERS® ALMOND to satiate their hunger, followed by the adage ‘No Bhook. No Bhoolna’.
The second TVC is set in the context of a TV news show where politicians with differing views are seen throwing shoes at each other, while one of them hides under the table to save himself. A chaiwallah appears and asks him ‘Are you hungry?’. When the politician replies in the affirmative, the chaiwallah hands him a SNICKERS® ALMOND and parts with the advice ‘No Bhook. No Bhoolna’.
