Retrain Your Brain

Agency: The Distillery Project


Independent, creative and strategy agency The Distillery Project (TDP) has launched a creative campaign to support Good Crunch™, Dole Packaged Foods’ new purpose-led brand of nutritious, sustainably made dried fruit snacks.

The product is available in three options—Pineapple Bites Original, Pineapple Bites with Chili, and Banana Bites Original—and delivers on what the name suggests: It’s a satisfying snack with an ultra-craveable crunch that is also “good” (read: a healthy choice). The goal is to retrain how consumers think about snacking, spark trial and raise awareness.

“We tend to think of snacking in a binary way—if a snack is healthy, it's probably not tasty; if it’s crunchy, it's probably unhealthy,” said Melissa Astete, senior brand manager, Snacking Innovation. “The ‘Retrain Your Brain’ campaign is a fun call to action to show that a really good snack can challenge your preconceived notions—and that snack is called Good Crunch.”

TDP shot two 15-second spots and a whittled-down six-second version of each. The work is running nationally on digital and social platforms, such as YouTube and Instagram. In one spot, a test subject is seated at a table containing two generic-looking bins. One is marked “A Delicious Snack” and the other “A Healthy Snack.” She is instructed to pick the snack she wants most, and not surprisingly, she chooses taste over nutrition. But when the labels are lifted, it turns out that the two snacks are both Good Crunch. The point is that there’s no reason why a product needs to be one thing or the other. In the other spot, a man who you might think is eating a crunchy potato chip is actually sampling a crunchy, healthier option, Good Crunch.

This professional campaign titled 'Retrain Your Brain' was published in United States in March, 2023. It was created for the brand: Dole, by ad agency: The Distillery Project. This Integrated medium campaign is related to the Confectionery, Snacks and Food industries and contains 2 media assets. It was submitted 11 months ago.
