    Lily O’Brien’s Chocolate Box – Bloom

    How does an Irish challenger brand raise awareness in the competitive UK FMCG market?
    Answer: By taking a giant size Chocolate box on tour to shopping centres from London to Newcastle and asking the women of Britain to share a chocolate and share a thought.

    Lily O’Brien’s Chocolate is available across the UK in all the major multiples. It faces tough competition and has a low awareness.

    To raise this awareness Bloom, who have offices in both Dublin and London, developed the Lily O’Brien’s Chocolate Box. A giant sized Chocolate box on the outside but a mini video studio on the inside. Female shoppers are invited to answer a series of questions such as “Is chocolate better than sex?” or “why don’t more women ask men out?” The interviews are recorded and the best answers are edited together to create a series of online videos.
