With only 3% market share, Chobani needed to reinvent their line of kids’ yogurt. Its failure began with a failure of imagination—we were selling adult yogurt in kids’ packaging. It didn’t appeal to kids’ palates or their motivations.
This project was the first co-led innovation between our agency and R&D—developing flavors that reference experiences familiar to kids: birthdays, carnivals, camp outs, and summertime popsicles. During food trials, kids repeated “Give me!" with each new flavor introduction. This led to the creation of a cast of characters, known as the “Gimmies” that anchor each unique flavor story.

We built Gimmies to be a kids’ lifestyle brand. Limited edition Gimmies swag was “dropped” online in limited quantities for 14 days—announced to fans every morning via email and instagram.
Along with a 2019 campaign push will be a Target merchandise collaboration, Amazon online shop collaboration, Nickelodeon digital sticker partnership, and content series development based on our characters.
