BRAND HISTORY
IN 1912
the National Biscuit Company, now known as Nabisco, created the famous Oreo cookie. The
cookie was inspired by the Hydrox cookie which looks like an Oreo with a less sweet filling and a
crunchier cookie. The original factory was located in Chelsea, Manhattan between 15th and 16th
Streets on Ninth Avenue which is now known as Oreo Way.
When Oreo was first invented it was called an Oreo Biscuit. The name was changed two more
times before it was finally named Oreo Chocolate Cookie Sandwich. However, most people just
call it Oreo. The origin of the name isnt known for sure but some believe that it was derived
from the French word Or meaning gold. Others thought that it was a way to mix the words
chocolate and cream by taking the os from chocolate and the re from cream thus making
o-re-o.
The first Oreo was sold on March 6, 1912 in Hoboken, New Jersey. The original Oreo design had
a wreath around the cookies with Oreo in the middle of it. They were sold for 25 cents per
pound in tin cans. The design was slightly altered twice. The current design has been around
since 1952.
The modern Oreo cream filling was created by Sam Porcello, a scientist at Nabisco, who
was often known as Mr. Oreo. Due to health concerns, in the early 1990s
Nabisco replace the lard in the filling with partially hydrogenated
vegetable oil. In 2006 the company switched to
non-hydrogenated vegetable oil to rid the cookies
of trans fat.
In 1974 Oreo introduced the Double Stuf
Oreo. Since then, Oreo has offered several
variations of flavors whether they are
seasonal, limited edition or always
available. The company went
international in 1996 when they
launched in China.

PAST IMC/ADVERTISING
SYNOPSIS
Past IMC advertising, promotion strategies and tactics for Oreo represent a taste-focused
strategy. Unlike todays current campaigns, past advertising tactics for Oreo include tirelessly
describing the product while appealing to the senses of the consumer. This has been proven in
notable past IMC campaigns with copy such as two mouth-melting chocolate cookies filled
devoutly with rich vanilla fondant and chocolaty cookies with a luscious cream. Although
Oreo has since divorced itself from a taste-driven strategy to a more brand-driven strategy
starting in the 1990s, it functioned well as a spring-board to introduce the unknown brand. This
has been proven in relatively recent campaigns that focus less on the product, and more on the
personality and voice of the Oreo brand. Examples of this major shift are shown in campaigns
such as the Double Stuf Racing League and Play With Oreo. Causes for such shift include
increased brand awareness and a shift in target demographic from young children to adults.
CAMPAIGN EXAMPLES
Campaign: The Oreo Crme Sandwich
TV Example: Open up an OREO Crme Sandwich and take a lick! No other chocolate cookie
sandwich has the luscious creamy filling of OREO crme sandwich Nabisco loves cookies! Thats
why they make em so good! Two mouth-melting chocolate cookies filled devoutly with rich
vanilla fondantthats an OREO CREME SANDWICH youre loving! It makes a wonderful
desserta perfect between-meal treat! At your grocers today in the regular package or new tray
pack.
Campaign: Its Fun Living On A Ranch
TV Example: Its fun living on a ranch, but whos having the most fun? Hes riding a pony, but
their eating OREO cookies. Delicious Oreo cream sandwich. Each OREO is really two cookies
you know. Two chocolaty cookies with a luscious cream filling in between. The most and the
creamiest filling of all. Oreo cream sandwich.
Campaign: A Lot Can Happen With Oreo
TV Example: Announcer: Once upon a time, there was nothing in the world but a little boy and
his Oreo cookies. Rich and chocolaty outside, smooth and creamy on the inside. And that was
enough! Then, the little boy wanted something to have with his Oreo cookie and something to
keep the milk in. And a farm to keep the cow on, and then houses sprang up and then cities and
you know the rest. A lot can happen with Oreo cream sandwich. Baked by Nabisco.

PAST IMC/ADVERTISING
Campaign:Nabisco, Americas Cookie Jar
TV Example:
SONG: Where do you go for the good times
DAD: We better check our supplies
SONG: You sure dont have to go far"
KID: OREO Cookies!
SONG: Just put you hand in Nabisco, Americas cookie jar.
DAD: Mmmm, love that creamy filling!
KID: And two chocolatey cookies! Oreos are good."
DAD: When youve been baking cookies as long as Nabisco, they gotta be good!
SONG: Nabisco, Americas cookie jar.
Campaign: Christmas Ad
TV Example: TV Commercial features Santa Clause eating OREO cookies as the cookie of choice
for the home he is visiting. The kid falls asleep right before Clause arrives and awakens right
after he leaves. Stunned that the cookies are missing and Santa has consumed them, the
commercial plays to the magical nature of the season and the product itself.
Campaign: Twist. Lick. Dunk.
TV Example: TV Commercial features children using OREO cookies in many different ways
(twisting, dunking, spinning, etc.) Accompanied by a song, this ad features the playfulness of the
cookie as well as the consumers who eat them.
Campaign: Brothers
TV Example: TV Commercial features two brothers eating OREO cookies together at the table.
One with a full sized glass of milk, and the other with a sippie like cup. The younger, unable to
dip his cookies into his sippie cup like his older brother, settles for turning his copy upside down
to release milk onto the cookie. At the end, a product shot appears and the tagline is read and
spoken saying Only OREO. Twist. Lick. Dunk.
Campaign: Double Stuf Racing League
TV Example: Super Bowl Ad - TV Commercial features two famous athlete duos, the Williams
sisters and the Manning brothers. In a press-conference-like environment, the two groups
exchange heated words about competing the Double Stuff Racing League. This commercial
used celebrity endorsements and a hint of mystery to create buzz.

PAST/IMC ADVERTISING
Campaign: Milk: Americas Favorite Cookie
TV Example: A son and father mirror each other through the process of eating an Oreo cookie.
Twisting, licking, dunking, sealing, and eatingthe two mimic each others exact moves. Only to
find out that the two are doing so through a video chat. The scene ends with the two closing their
laptops and the dad getting ready for the day while staring out the window of a high-rise building
and a scenic skyscraper view. The tagline is spoken and seen: Oreo. Milks favorite cookie. This
ad was used to instill a sense of playfulness and family to the OREO brand.

BRAND COPY
The history of Oreos taglines and copy personality highlights the evolution of marketing within the
CPG industry. However, for Oreo, the change in copy has more specifically highlighted a transition
from a need for physical consumption to that of a playful, magical and whimsical product.
1950: Oh! Oh! Oreo!
1980: For The Kid In All Of Us
1982: Americas Best Loved Cookie
1982: The One And Only
1986: Whos The Kid With The Oreo Cookie?
1990: Oreo, The Original Twister
2004: Milks Favorite Cookie
2013: Wonderfilled

CURRENT IMC/ADVERTISING
CURRENT CAMPAIGNS
The current campaigns for Oreo represent a
brand-driven approach to advertising versus a
taste-driven approach which was utilized early in
the history of Oreo. Within the last 10 years,
Oreo has focused less on the qualities of their
product and more on their nostalgic personality
through an approach that gives humanistic
qualities to the brand and personifies the cookie
in a relatable way.

WONDERFILLED
Based on the idea that giving an OREO to
someone could change the course of the
relationship, OREO created dozens of videos
featuring a similar melody line and illustrative
style that highlights the friendly nature of the
OREO cookie. By commissioning artists like Owl
City, Tegan & Sarah and more, the brand reached
an audience looking to seek/make positive
relationships with others. The ads vary in lyric and
story, but stay unified with the wonderfilled
jingle. This campaign proposes the idea that
OREO is filled with wonder and joy and will
dispel such once you share an OREO cookie.

CURRENT IMC ADVERTISING


SUPPORTING PROMO
Campaign Title: Play With Oreo
This campaign asks 10 artists to develop
illustrations involving the OREO cookie. The
sense of play and wonder is instilled by asking
the consumers to discover and play. Such posters
and designs were installed in Times Square and
presented in online social media outlets. The
brand and style of this promotion is nearly
identical to the current campaign, Wonderfilled,
thus making it a supporting promotion.

COMPETITORS
Oreo is commonly known as Americas Favorite Cookie. While some may disagree, reports
have shown that Oreo surpasses all competitors in the cookie industry. Oreos top competitors
according to The Washington Post, would be Keebler, Gamesa, Britanna, Perla, Chips Ahoy, and
many others.
In 2014, The Washington Post reported that Americans only spent about half as many dollars on
Keebler products than they did on Oreos. Oreo has many different products within their line that
also continues to surpass cookie sales to all national and global cookie company. The
Washington Post also mentioned that Oreo has sold three times as much cookie sales than any
other brand in the world.

TARGET DEMOGRAPHICS
In obtaining the research that is needed for
our case study, we understood that it would
be difficult finding the target audience and
psycho-graphics of the desired consumer. In
the pursuit of finding that information, we
contacted Mondelez International directly
and asked to for the behavioral information
for educational purposes.
Mondelez responded by saying that type of

permitted to disclose that information to us.
That being said, we then looked for that

TARGET DEMOGRAPHICS
We also found that Oreo does target middle-class
families. Oreo is a relevantly affordable snack food,
targeting middle-class families continues to target both
primary and secondary audiences. Families with an
easy-going lifestyle and with creative hobbies are also
characteristics Oreo seeks to reach out to.
On different social media platforms we do see creative
usages of Oreo products. Targeting individuals with
creative hobbies continues to market to families and
children by encouraging creative ways to consume an
Oreo cookie. Reports have also stated that Oreo
encourages adults to purchase their product for
reminiscent purposes.
In addition, The United States, China, Venezuela,
Canada, Indonesia, UK, Mexico, Spain, France and India
are the countries with the biggest market of the Oreo
cookie. Keep in mind that marketing the Oreo cookie to
these different countries will be greatly influenced by the
countries culture as well.

IN THE NEWS
OREO IN POLITICS
As the U.S presedential election campaigns continue, candidates have been weighing in on
important issues. Of these issues is the topic of international labor and the decline of American
Jobs. Nabisco, Oreos parent company, is being attacked by presidential candidates Donald
Trump and Hilary Clinton for choosing to lay-off many employees of a Chicago factory and
upgrading factories built in Mexico. Oreo has yet to respond to the issue as of March 15, 2016. 6

CREATIVE BRIEF
Campaign Goal
To implement a new advertising emphasis targeting millennials that helps position Oreo as a
key player in achieving their idealistic lifestyles.

Objectives

Style
This campaign will rely heavily on visuals to communicate the lifestyle that Oreo will support.
Photography, video, and design will support an adventurous lifestyle as seen on platforms

Voice
All forms of communication for this brand in this campaign should be approached by the
creative team in a voice that feels timeless, inspiring, young and independent. The copy
should place millenial consumers in a reverie of adventure and independence.
