Section IA — Case Overview
Why should this case win in the category (ies) you have entered?
Brainfreeze™ . We were up against a behemoth. 7-11's Slurpee is so iconic, that the brand trademarked a verb that is now part of the global lexicon. Enter Mac's Froster: an icy cold drink that has been refreshing Canadians across the country. While available year round, the Froster is (not surprisingly) a bigger seller in the summer and is further supported by Mac's annual under-the-brim Flip the Lip contest for a chance for Froster drinkers to win instant prizes.
