Partnering with chef Eric Lanlard, the candy company invited members of the Cadbury Kitchen community to create recipes that use Creme Eggs and share them on Google+ through videos, posts and animated GIFs.

The Story

Cadbury Creme Eggs make tasty treats, but Cadbury set out to prove that its eggs can be used to make even tastier creations. Partnering with chef Eric Lanlard, the candy company invited members of the Cadbury Kitchen community to create recipes that use Creme Eggs and share them on Google+ through videos, posts and animated GIFs. Chef Eric then recreated his favorite recipes during a live Hangout on air.

To raise awareness for the campaign, we produced two callout videos. Members of the community used Auto Awesome to create animated videos of their recipes. They also used +Post ad format, which takes users’ posts from the campaign’s page and turns them into display ads across the Google Display Network. Other users can then leave comments, follow your brand and give a +1, straight from the ad.
