Coca-Cola India recently announced the launch of Fanta’s new flavour, Apple Delite, further expanding the brand’s colorful portfolio with a delicious fruit flavoured variant.

The refreshing sparkling drink with real apple juice, will refresh consumers in mind, body, and spirit. India’s favourite fruit flavoured brand also launched its new colourful commercial with youth sensation Kartik Aaryan, the brand ambassador, fostering excitement and energy to yet another fun version of Fanta. Kartik Aaryan can be seen enjoying Fanta Apple Delite in the new commercial, which marks the beginning of his association with the Company and the brand.

The brand wanted to establish a strong association between the taste and crunchiness of a real apple and the sound it makes when bitten into with its campaign tagline ‘Iss drink mein apple ki bite hai’. Partnering with OpenX and mCanvas, Coca-Cola India unveiled an exceptionally engaging mobile ad, to launch the drink with a creative twist.

As users interact with an app on their mobile, the ad seamlessly appears with a visual of an apple and a short description of Fanta Apple Delite. Once users tap on the apple, a loud crunching sound is heard, and the product is revealed. The closing screen features the relevant branding and the CTA ‘Order Now’ that leads users to the landing page for more information on the product and to make a purchase. The ad is reaching 15 MN users across the country.
