With seven different varieties of soft-chew candies, Airheads has been a classic favorite among kids and adults alike since 1985. However, it’s no surprise that the candy industry is extremely difficult to stay sticky in.
Airheads needed to increase trial and awareness while driving purchase consideration and conversion among consumers over the fall, winter and holiday season.
