Sample Chips Pro Trends

Each Chips PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online chips articles, videos and images. Examples:

Crowdsourced Celebrity Everyday people are taking unconventional paths to fame Implications - Today's information age has fostered a culture of over-sharing, and those who share best are able to circumvent traditional avenues to fame. Millennial entrepreneurs are turning to platforms like YouTube and Tumblr to boost their personal brand, as well as cultivate opportunities and partnerships with bigger names. Rather than a flash-in-the-pan fad, this shift signals the possibility of long-term, mutually beneficial relationships between online personalities and top-tier brands.

Incentivized Gaming Brands engage consumers with mobile games that offer tangible rewards Implications - Pushing back against assertions that mobile gaming has no tangible benefit, brands have begun offering material rewards attained through sustained mobile play. With potential to be used as a means to digital community building or as a loyalty program for the Internet age, such apps can go a long way in terms of retaining the interest of the busy modern consumer.

Streamlined Feedback Brands encourage customer feedback through user-friendly technology Implications - Sites like Yelp have made feedback unavoidable for restaurants and retailers, but for brands who don't regularly hear from their customers, getting honest feedback can be a challenge. To combat this, brands are implementing apps and tech kiosks that not only make the process easy, but in some cases incentivize customer engagement. This is consistent with an increasingly customized, consumer-driven approach to customer service.

Eastern Infusion Cold tea beverages incorporate Eastern taste profiles for consumer allure Implications - Spicy, ethnic flavors hailing from the East have been making their way into traditionally sweeter fare, such as desserts and coffee, in order to satisfy a growing consumer desire for flavor reversal. Cold beverages are following suit, adding a spicy kick to an otherwise refreshing experience, while simultaneously providing North American consumers with international variations of iced drinks. The expansion of fusion from food to beverage signifies a consumer appreciation for new incarnations of familiar flavors.

Giftable Confection Seasonal treats adopt packaging designs suitable for gift-giving Implications - Moving beyond traditional seasonal flavors, holiday confections are integrating packaging designs that mimic collectibles and gift wrapping for experiential allure. By specifically crafting packages to mimic products such as toys or decor, brands are not only seeking to make seasonal goods more memorable, but also giving typically single-use products a second life by offering greater depth and adaptability.

Social Good Gaming Mobile gaming apps covertly inform consumers on social causes Implications - Moving past their role as mere tools for passing time, mobile gaming apps that leverage their audiences in order to increase awareness around important social causes serve an increasingly important role. Whether as a direct means of raising funds or as a tool for informing individuals, altruistic mobile games are a covert method of engaging consumers around issues that matter.
