Domino’s Unveils The DXP: Delivery eXPert Vehicle


Behold the Domino’s DXP (Delivery eXPert), think of it as a Batmobile for pizza delivery.

The modified Chevrolet Spark is tricked out with a warming oven and space for 80 pizzas, sides, two-liter bottles of soda and dipping sauces. The driver’s seat is the only seat and a puddle light projects the Domino’s logo onto the ground.


Local Motors, which once built a 3-D printed car, held a crowdsourced competition to collect and perfect design elements, while Rousch Enterprises, developer of Google’s self-driving car platform, put the DXP together. The brand’s lead agency, Crispin Porter + Bogusky—the shop behind Domino’s Tracker and other high-profile promotions (like the ability to order by text, tweet and emoji)—worked on the DXP’s flashy exterior design and bespoke car topper.


There are 100 such vehicles in production, and by year’s end they’ll serve as mobile advertisements while speeding pies to customers in cities like Boston, Detroit, Houston, New Orleans, San Diego and Seattle.

“People want their pizza to be as hot and fresh out of the oven as possible,” CP+B executive creative director Matt Talbot tells AdFreak. “The DXP, with its built-in warming oven, can deliver on that better than any vehicle before it. The other compartments in the vehicle also mean that any drinks, sides and sauces will make it safely to your front door as well.”

Four years in the making, the DXP has been rigorously tested, Talbot adds: “That includes flammability testing, cold weather testing, rain testing and excessive-use, including 10,000 cycles of opening and closing the warming oven door.”

Hershey Kisses Deluxe


Pennsylvania’s most iconic chocolate maker is doubling-down on one of its most popular treats. The Hershey Company on Tuesday announced its Hershey Kisses Deluxe.

The new Kisses, on sale November 5, 2015, will be twice the size of a normal Kiss – the oversized, chocolate chips wrapped in silver foil – and feature a hazelnut center and rice crisps in the chocolate.

The bigger Kisses are wrapped in gold foil and, according to the company’s website, will be packaged in quantities ranging from 3 to 75. The three-Kiss box will cost $1; the 75-piece gift box will be $32.

Company officials tell USA Today the innovation is the biggest since the central Pennsylvania company added almonds to the Kisses 25 years ago.

Doritos Brand Partners With The It Gets Better Project To Introduce “Doritos Rainbows,” Celebrating & Supporting The LGBT Community


The Doritos brand, in partnership with the It Gets Better Project, today announced a new, limited-edition product to celebrate and support the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in the boldest, most colorful way possible. Introducing Doritos Rainbows chips, the first Doritos product in history made up of multiple, rainbow-colored Doritos chips inspired by the Pride flag. The new product is available exclusively to consumers who donate to the It Gets Better Project, an organization that seeks to provide hope to LGBT young people and inspire the changes to make the world a better place for them.

Starting today, consumers who donate $10 or more in support to the It Gets Better Project through www.ItGetsBetter.org/DoritosRainbows will be mailed a bag of Doritos Rainbows chips, while supplies last. The goal is to raise funds for the It Gets Better Project and the important work the organization does in support of LGBT youth around the world. Upon making their donations, consumers are encouraged to share messages of hope and inspiration using #BoldandBetter. For more details, visit www.ItGetsBetter.org/DoritosRainbows.

The It Gets Better Project began in September 2010, when activist Dan Savage created a YouTube video with his partner Terry Miller to inspire hope for young people facing harassment. In response to a number of students taking their own lives after being bullied in school, they wanted to create a personal way for supporters everywhere to tell LGBT youth that, yes, it does indeed get better. Five years later, the It Gets Better Project has turned into a worldwide movement, inspiring more than 60,000 user-created videos viewed more than 60 million times. To date, the project has received submissions from celebrities, organizations, activists, politicians and media personalities.

McDonald’s To Offer All Day Breakfast Beginning October 6, 2015


McDonald’s Corp. is embarking on its biggest operational change in years as it tries to increase sales with plans to offer breakfast items all-day at its more than 14,300 U.S. restaurants starting October 6, 2015.

The move to all-day breakfast, which McDonald’s has been testing since March, was approved in a vote by franchisees last week and affirmed on Tuesday by a franchisee leadership council, the company said. It marks the latest new initiative under Chief Executive Steve Easterbrook, who took over on March 1 vowing to revamp the burger giant’s stale image and end a sales slump in its home market that began nearly three years ago.

McDonald’s customers for years have asked the company to sell breakfast items past the traditional 10:30 a.m. cutoff, but the challenges of cooking Egg McMuffins alongside Big Macs deterred the company. In an interview, McDonald’s USA President Mike Andres said it is the biggest strategic move the company has made since it rolled out its McCafe line of coffee and espresso drinks across the U.S. in 2009.

“This is the consumers’ idea. This is what they want us to do,” Andres said. “That’s why I think this could be the catalyst for our turnaround.”

The move could help McDonald’s franchisees who have struggled with slowing sales, though it also creates new costs and complexities. To address their concerns, McDonald’s began testing all-day breakfast about six months ago in San Diego and later in Nashville and Mississippi, and in June, convened a seven-member task force of franchisees to study a nationwide rollout.
