Ogilvy's heart-warming campaign wins both creativity and effectiveness awards

Cadbury's 'Say It With Chocolate' Wins Two Effie Awards

A low-budget campaign from Geometry Global, the world’s largest activation network, 

has boosted Cadbury Dairy Milk sales in Malaysia and is taking Asia’s awards scene by storm. 

‘Say it with Chocolate’ has shaken up the hard-to-crack gifting category in confectionery. It pus 

heritage printing presses into supermarkets, enabling shoppers to customise 175g bars of Cadbury 

Dairy Milk with personal messages for their friends and loved ones. 

 

At Adfest (7 March), ‘Say it with Chocolate’ took home a hat-trick of awards: 

Silver: Design CATEGORY DE11: POINT OF SALE: SMALL SCALE 

Silver: Direct CATEGORY DM06: DIRECT AMBIENT: SMALL SCALE 

Bronze: Outdoor CATEGORY OD08: POINT OF PURCHASE (POP) DISPLAY 

 

The campaign has also won big at Spikes Asia and most recently won two Silver awards at the 

Effie Awards Asia Pacific. Its success has already seen it scheduled for rollout in India. 

 

Daniel Comar, Regional Exeuctive Creative Director – Asia Pacific, Geometry Global, said: 

“‘Say it with Chocolate’ shows that it’s the calibre of strategy and insight, not the budget, that really 

counts when it comes to breakthrough retail activation. As the awards haul shows, this work 

embodies our commitment to the twin peaks of Creativity and Effectiveness.”  

The campaign achieved a five-point increase in perception of Cadbury Dairy Milk as a gift amongst 

the target audience of Malay and Chinese consumers aged 20-29 years. It attained a 30% increase in 

sales by value and unit – a dramatic turnaround in the previously declining moulded chocolates 

category (blocks and bars). 


Tactical use of Facebook and Twitter, online advertising, PR, blogger engagement and mobile 

marketing resulted in no fewer than 17 million digital media impressions. 

The creative insight behind ‘Say it with Chocolate’ was the declining impact of words - due to 

modern-day sensationalism - with stock greetings failing to resonate. The in-store printing press 

allowed customers to imprint their bar with bespoke greetings, from apologies to marriage proposals, 

only visible when the bar was opened by the gift’s recipient.
