PEPSI MAX TASTE CHALLENGE

MORE DETAIL

SIP, SIP HOORAY FOR PEPSI MAX!

Many of the best marketing activities are founded on a simple fact. In this instance, findings proved that when Pepsi MAX was put against Coca-Cola Original in a blind taste test, more people preferred the taste of Pepsi Max. So in 2018 we decided to put this premise to the test across Europe with the Pepsi MAX Taste Challenge. The objective was to get consumers to re-appraise which cola they prefer and add Pepsi MAX to their repertoire! Through blind taste tests across Europe consumers have been asked to leave their bias on the side-lines and let their thirst choose a winner. Would sugar-free Pepsi MAX earn a flavour-packed victory over its full-sugar rival?

We developed a strong visual identity in line with the core brand look and feel, using refreshing cues to bring the challenge to life with exciting attention-grabbing visuals. All this was developed in to an Activation toolkit with guidance on how to execute the promotion locally and a Shopper toolkit to help with in-store communication – both to be used by all markets across Europe. Overall, more than 300,000 taste challenges were undertaken and 3.4m samples distributed.
