Going into its fifth year on the road, the Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Truck needed to do more than deliver product trials through an authentic brand experience. But how does a premium brand with a sterling reputation for quality and civic consciousness evolve an already successful series of tours?
THE BIG. SIMPLE. IDEA.
Stories are compelling, and a narrative thread can link seemingly disconnected events and give them meaning. At the heart of the Core Tour was a full-blown East & West Coast sampling adventure ripe with tales of ‘good’ to be told. It was an ice-cream odyssey that amplified the experience digitally through compelling story telling and genuine social-media engagement.
While the trucks visited neighborhood hot spots and large-area events in market, the tour’s primary driver was social media as Ben & Jerry’s fans tweeted the trucks @BenJerrysTruck and
@BenJerrysWest to receive a free scoop wherever they were!
