2017 ECHO Finalist Feature



Agency: Clemenger BBDO Melbourne
Client: Mars Chocolate Australia

Chocolate bars are one of the most frequently promoted categories in food. Each week shoppers face an onslaught $1 bars or 2 for $3 offers, leading to over 50% of all convenience store purchases happening on promotion.
