Everybody dropped their mouths, aghast that those words were uttered in a world that's so packed full of crappy ones that we as a society are almost immune to them, we feel nothing any more.
But looking into a campaign for these diabetes-inducing little treats, I found out he was right, they are really great. Here's a few examples:
It's just so cute when they say "goo"!
I'm sure the candies are disgusting, anyone who I know that's ever eaten a Cadbury Creme Egg says it's like getting beat up by a bucket of sugar, and eating them is about as attractive as eating your own snot, but they're really pushing to expand out from being an Easter-only candy and forging their way into Halloween territory. (Side note: Halloween Territory sounds like a Tim Burton movie starring Johnny Depp.) Also, apparently the only difference between these and the regular ones is that there is a weak mint flavour to them, which again, sounds pretty disgusting.
I love how at the end of the commercials they don't give you a website or, God forbid, a phone number. Instead they just have a picture of the Facebook logo and the name of the product.
I checked out the Facebook for Cadbury Screme Eggs, and since the page was created in July they have about 62,000 Likes.
They regularly post cute little pictures about the "Goo-pocalypse" that's taking over Canada.
**Translation: Which tool do you think would make the best de-gooer?"
The only thing that I've noticed about the Facebook is that they need more people monitoring it. There's a ton of fans interacting with these great commercials and images, but a lot of them are asking questions about where to get these little minty monsters in their specific regions. They could have a staff member on there full time replying with an "Anywhere. You get them anywhere." or even a "Goo goo gooo!"
What do you think of the new Cadbury Screme Eggs?
