Testing Haribo Packaging with Turkish Consumers: Striking Market Research Results

Anna Kupriyanova
Haribo is internationally beloved. Those guys have been producing gummy bears since 1922 and the world is still pretty crazy about them. Why?
There's nostalgia for our happy childhood moments chewing colourful animals. And there's trust built by the brand. But what's the secret sauce?

In Turkey, they recently released a mix for Bayram, a three-day festival when sweets are eaten to celebrate the end of the fast of Ramadan month.

We ran a test with 100 Turkish consumers, ages 18 to 65 years old, to measure the likability, purchase intent and 7 other metrics that showed us how well Bayram mix was received.

To get quick consumer feedback we used our research solution Design Test.

The General Perception score reflects the overall likeability of this promotion. It is also based on the KPIs that signal a person's readiness to ENGAGE with the tested material, such as desire to learn more about it and share it with others. The score reached the 25% of the best status. Which happens so rarely we were wowed by the results.

To understand what's behind this, let's take a look at the breakdown of 8 metrics that reflect the consumer attitude in detail.
