The brand has launched three new fun-shapes: cat, feet, and crawlers, as an addition to its sour jelly portfolio.

Chupa Chups, a confectionery brand from the house of Perfetti Van Melle, has once again dialed up its quotient with the introduction of three new whacky shapes- cat, feet, and crawlers, as an addition to its sour jelly portfolio. The brand has also launched an exclusive campaign Shape of Fun to bring alive the new shapes. The campaign dials up further on the brand’s global philosophy of Forever Fun which manifests into a strong call to action and positioning in the form of Kabhi Ruke Na Fun for India.

The dual-coloured jellies, infused with sour taste and prank-inspired shapes promise to elevate the consumption experience. The assortment includes three new bags – one for each shape rockat, crazyfeet and crawlers, available in a wide range of flavors like watermelon, orange, strawberry, cola, lime, apple, and blackcurrant flavours.

Each pack is priced at Rs 10 for general trade. Bigger packs for organised trade are also expected to hit the market soon. The launch is being supported with an exclusive TV and digital campaign hitting the screens nationwide in March.

Conceptualised by Ogilvy, the campaign film opens in a karate class, in which the new Chupa Chups shapes are brought alive through a set of dramatic sequences. Packed with some unexpected twists and moves, the drama is around new shapes that set the crescendo for fun and trigger some delightful madness amongst kids and teens. The puzzled Sensei also finds himself swept up in the frenzy, nudging everyone to keep having fun.

The campaign will air nationwide across channels on TV with a strong digital activation.
