Celebrate the distinct flavor combinations that allow candy lovers to "Be Both" with the SweeTARTS lineup.
Through the creation of a WebGL powered music mixer, we developed musical moods for each candy and integrated a complex audio platform to give each product and flavor its own vibe.
From there, we allowed users to create, share, and listen to thousands of user-generated beats. Each one is crafted by a different sound kit, informed by the candies and brought to life with concert-style visuals.
What do your taste buds want to hear?
Vintage with retro organ sounds or Soft with electro-inspired vocals? Vibey with downtempo inspired synths or the bright luscious melodies of Chill offer a rich sonic palette to create with.
Drawing on the up-and-coming crossover Hyperpop genre, each rhythm and melody option pairs effortlessly and adjusts the beats-per-minute dynamically to keep the music sounding sweet. Beyond the audio elements, each flavor choice brings a distinct color palette and highlights specific candies that stay true to the Be Both mantra and pair perfectly across taste and sound.
Sweetening the Deal
Legendary hit-maker Christina Aguilera came on board to promote the whimsical music-mixer and encourage fans to submit their candy mashups for a chance at a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration.
One lucky winner received studio time with @xtina herself, and was able to see their creation come to life in new ways as the Grammy-winner helped create an original song using the winning beats.
The result was Breezy 2015 Night — a dreamy, shimmery track released on Spotify, and the cherry on top of this candy-inspired musical campaign.
