Edible Ads? A New Take On Outdoor Media

A wide variety of very popular billboard advertisements

The pressure for all brands is on when it comes to getting their likeness in front of more and more people. Things like demographic targeting, social media efforts, and more are all great means of advertising. That said, a great outdoor ad can bring in conversions like no other. Have you ever seen “edible ads” before?

This is our name for ads that appeal to our sense of taste and smell. If you recall, one of our previous blogs discussed how a steakhouse made a billboard that literally smells like pepper steak.

One Big Chocolate Bar

Let’s take a look at this one very creative ad from the minds over at Cadbury Chocolates. They were able to make a life-sized chocolate bar that was then erected on a board. The bar is super realistic, including the actual groves common in chocolate candies.

It’s also made to appear as if someone has already begun enjoying it, with a huge bite taken out of the top. This is a great example of how a visual like that can immediately make a chocolate lover crave a bar. It’s a great, innovative approach that surely led to more chocolate sales on a given day.
