INSIGHT: Baby Ruth is a classic American candy bar that has been around for almost 100 years. While it remains a staple in the candy industry, its chunky shape, unchanged product line, and lack of brand presence have kept it far from the modern consumer’s mind.
SOLUTION: Baby Ruth may not be the best-looking candy bar in the aisle, but it’s still sweet. With some help from some famously “ugly” creatures, Baby Ruth can take ownership of its unique shape and prove to customers that beauty isn’t always everything.
