Cadbury recruits Aussies to spread the word about Caramilk

VCCP has turned to a timeless and cost effective way to promote a product — put people in your merchandise and ask them to do the work for you. It helps if you recruit 1,000 friendly Australians for the job, and they agree to be paid in Caramilk bars.

Caramilk was introduced to the UK just last year, but has been on sale in Australia for a lot longer.

Bryony Tate, brand manager at Mondelez said: “Last year, we launched Cadbury Caramilk in the UK with a bang, sharing Aussies’ love of Caramilk far and wide. This year, we’re excited to take the ‘Just Ask An Aussie’ idea to the next level, sponsoring a thousand Aussies to make sure there’s always one nearby for Brits to ask for themselves.”

Angus Vine, creative director at VCCP London, said: “Aussies have loved Caramilk for years and with over 138,000 Aussies living in the UK, it makes them the perfect spokespeople for the brand. Look out for one and ‘Ask An Aussie’ to see what all the fuss is about.”
