When you have something cool like a QR Code, it pays that you can eat it too. We have had people come up with QR Codes made out of a variety of food and since UK’s Ramsbottom’s Clock Creative are putting stuff together for the up-coming Chocolate Festival, why not make a QR Code….out of chocolate.
Touted as the world’s first ever chocolate of this size, the agency reportedly told media that they intend for the chocolate to be at least a meter high and when scanned will lead mobile phone users to a website designed specifically for the festival. Through the website, users will find coupons, promotions and special offers.
The real challenge for the yummy QR Code would be to keep it from melting and still workable at the same time. We are absolutely interested in finding out how they are going to achieve that.
Organizers are expecting a large throng of people at the festival…something to the tune of twenty five thousand people…or more! Knowing that this is a one-of-a-kind festival and more often than not, those attending are going to be mobile-friendly people, they are hoping to get people to do something different, or in their words, ‘do something a bit different’.
The chocolate, as reported, will be placed at the window of Chocolate Cafe, the outlet that is trying to achieve this feat for a couple of weeks and they are hoping that the melt-in-your-mouth choc will survive the weather during that time.
The idea is truly enticing but as the organizers were saying, the real challenge is to keep the chocolate in ‘perfect shape’ so that the code remains in working order. Well, that’s a tall order and here’s wishing them all the best!
