Sweetarts, a popular candy brand under Nestlé, known for its tangy and sweet flavor profile, sought to expand its product line with new flavors and chewy options aimed at engaging a multicultural audience across the USA.
To design packaging that not only stands out on shelves but also resonates with a diverse audience, reflecting the playful and vibrant nature of the Sweetarts brand. The goal was to create visually appealing and culturally inclusive packaging for the new flavors and chewy options, ensuring broad market appeal and increased brand loyalty.
