Final Product: Hershey's Milk Chocolate Truck - 4 students hit the road for 4 months of summer across Canada giving out Hershey bars at community events and fairs. The design allowed for the WHITE rented pick up truck to be returned at end of season. The vinyl coverings and the removable chocolate frame/shell and refrigeration platform were put into storage. The promotion was so successful the campaign was carried out a second summer with a new rental vehicle.
