Top 50 Branding Trends in September

From Health-Promoting Campaigns to Sparkling Lollipop Sodas

— September 28, 2017 — Eco
September 2017 branding trends reveal powerful campaigns that seek to get important messages across, as well as unique co-branded products and initiatives that are simultaneously unique and familiar.

The health-focused snack brand KIND recently put up a sculpture in New York's Times Square that shows how much sugar the average American child consumes in only a year. The sculpture weighs 64 pounds and reveals boxes of sugar – representing how much sugar children eat in such a short time frame.

7-Elevens across South Korea are offering Chupa Chups sodas – Chupa Chups being the iconic lollipop brand. The soda cans feature the brand's classic lollipop imagery, and come in Orange, Grape, and Strawberries and Cream flavors.
