BC&FD adds lustre to Golden Crunch

EditorTVCs, News Make a Comment

Simplot have teamed up with the BC&F Dentsu crew to put a fresh spin on their deliciously moreish, Birds Eye Golden Crunch chips.

“Alas,” says the BC&F Dentsu release informing us of this, “the once-loved chips had lost their lustre, giving way to the bustling nature of the frozen chip category.

“So, Simplot sprang into action and set about giving consumers more of what they really wanted. An even crunchier chip, carefully crafted with a new secret recipe. The somewhat dated packaging also got a much-loved facelift too.”

To complement the complete brand relaunch, which also includes instore and online activity, the campaign looks to reinvigorate what the product stands for, and indeed, why it should be a household staple.

And so, a common universal truth resonated with everyone which led to the new brand direction.

Leading the creative team, creative director Mick Stalker initially touched on an insight dating back to his childhood years, when dinner time in the Stalker house took some mighty shouting before breaking through the barrier of adolescent teens playing on Sega.

And so, it went, the diagnosis of dinner deafness, yet to be globally certified but certainly internationally recognised. The cure was then defined with some ease. One bite of the crunchiest chip and the family will appear at the dinner table.

Throughout the creative development, consistent collaboration between BC&FD and Simplot involved first-hand stories of dinner time, parenting stories, and a non-stop taste testing of the battered chips. It was a hard job but someone had to do it.
