Path's Cracking New Design for Oppo Ice Cream Sticks

The Oppo Brothers have recently extended their portfolio of premium healthy ice creams and puds with a new range of naturally decadent hand-held treats. With packaging designed by Path, Oppo's new Ice Cream Sticks supports the brand's ambition to grow their presence in the frozen fixture with a sweet indulgence you never need to resist. The initial launch includes two variants - Madagascan Vanilla coated in Milk Chocolate with Roasted Almonds and Salted Caramel coated in Milk Chocolate.

Path's task was to develop a new expression that disrupted the freezer, converting category indulgers and attracting ice cream avoiders with powerful communication of Oppo's significant health-conscious proposition - 60% fewer calories than the competition without a compromise to taste.

The design uses untreated textures and handcrafted qualities to communicate the taste sensation of Oppo's new Ice Cream Sticks. The smooth chocolate background is cracked to convey the no-need-to-resist first bite of the product experience. Scattered almonds and drizzles of salted caramel elevate taste appeal, whilst clear communication of calories is stated above Oppo's 'sweet spot' logo.

"We've had the pleasure of being The Oppo Brothers' creative partners for almost 5 years, supporting them in expanding and strengthening their appeal with seductive sophistication," commented Amy Rees, Design Director at Path. "At every turn, we've tried to strike the right balance between premium decadence and everyday temptation, luxurious taste and natural goodness, sweet indulgence and making a healthy choice. The design for this new exciting offering continues to bring Oppo's promise of #GoodTemptation to life, as it offers consumers the best of both worlds."
