Cadbury's Introduce the World's First Flavour-Matching Facebook-Powered Vending Machine

To celebrate Cadbury’s wide flavor range and unique selection of sweets, Australia’s leading chocolate brand created the Joy Generator- a vending machine that dispenses chocolate flavors based on a person’s Facebook likes and interests.
Users simply walk up to the machine, sign into Facebook, and are served a free chocolate bar with a flavor unique to their personality. Customers then take a picture with their flavor in the brand’s social media enabled picture booth.
Users get matched up with one of twelve flavors. Those who register as energetic should expect to receive a “Crunchie” bar. For the exotic posters and frequent travelers, the “Turkish Delight” may be a better fit.
This experiential stunt created with Red Agency is part of Cadbury’s integrated brand strategy. The campaign includes a series of new packaging, outdoor activities, digital executions, engaging social content, and additional experiential activations- all of which communicate Cadbury’s dedication to flavor innovation.
The online profiles created by social media users demonstrate the diverse range of interests, beliefs, and perceptions that society has. Cadbury’s Joy Generator acknowledges those characteristics on an individual scale, and thus establishes strong emotional bonds with potential consumers.

How Far Would You Queue for a Free Snack?

Known for its ridiculous and crazy campaigns, Australian brand, Fantastic Delites, is back to test the patience of people to see how far they would go to get a free snack.
In its new campaign, customers were made to queue up at the start of an empty mazy line despite not having anyone ahead of them. After being let through, they were given a free bag of Fantastic Delites Curls.
This act was repeated at several locations, including an ice-skating rink and a park, where customers were required to cross a dirty pond to get their free snack.
