We were responsible for the campaign that told the UK about the relaunch of #VanillaCoke (including this sneaky April Fool’s press ad). Got your hands on one yet?
Chocolate! at Bristol M Shed
This exhibition sounded tasty, so we sent two of our creatives off on a sunny afternoon to explore…
Our trip started with a glimpse into the history of Bristolian chocolatier Fry’s. It was great to see photos of the old J S Fry & Sons factory on Union Street (sob sob) and get an insight into Bristol’s chocolatey past. Turns out it used to be a key player in the manufacturing process.
Did you know Crunchie was originally a product of Fry’s until it was bought by Cadbury? Or that the earliest Crunchie bars were wrapped in gold foil and looked kind of like small bullions?
Then we got to check out various moulds for Easter eggs. The machinery looked a bit like medieval torture devices. So did the tools for decorating each piece of chocolate.
Cocoa beans are massive by the way. Huge. Who’da thunk it?
The last stop was squeezing through an Oompa-Loompa-sized door, and then we were off. To find a sweet snack to munch on of course. Mmmm, Yorkie.
We spied our new GBK Pale Ale label designs on GBK’s facebook.
