The Great Eggo Waffle Off
The ultimate battle of tasty vs. yum.

XW: Creative Director
Razorfish: Agency

Within an increasingly busy category that is changing with nutrition trends and needs for convenience, Eggo was looking to increase relevance with consumers. We were tasked with pushing Eggo beyond butter and syrup by giving  purpose to a partnership with Bryer's Ice Cream.   

Moms see recipes as a expression of themselves. It’s not just about what they eat, it’s about what they create. We wanted to inspire and invite our community to experience Eggo in unexpected, extraordinarily delicious ways.

 
 

WEEK OF WAFFLES

We reached out to the most popular social influencers within the Mom blogging community and appointed them our Chief Waffle Officers. We asked them to post one recipe each day for a full week to help us inspire Moms and promote our contest.

In just one week, Our Chief Waffle Officers created 105 unique and amazing recipes! Moms immediately got in on the action and helped bloggers push their recipes even further in social channels. 


MEDIA

On-pack promotions, in-store signage, online media and existing properties encouraged Moms to make their own Eggo recipe, snap a pic and enter the contest.
