Coca-Cola's "Share a Coke" campaign -- the one where they printed people's names on the cans, was such a huge international hit (and the first time in years that they have seen a sales increase) that it has been expanded this year.
In addition to adding new names such as Desi, Sheena and Destiny, they are also offering nicknames such as "Sidekick" and generic words such as "Team." And for those of us with unusual names -- the chance to order custom bottles for the bargain price of $5 plus $5 for shipping. (Rooney, 2015)
Oh, and they didn't forget blind people either. Yes, some names are available printed in braille. (Nudd, 2015)
So along comes Lay's Chips to up the ante. Thanks to an interactive tool called the "Lay's Summer Bag Creator," 10,000 chip lovers will receive an actual bag of chips with their personalized photo and caption. (Rooney, 2015)
What do you think? Will Coke be able to build on last year's success? Will chips with photos be just as popular?
