Cheat Cookies
Mondelez – Saatchi & Saatchi – 2023

Oreo Xbox cookies became
cheat codes.

We were given an exciting challenge from Oreo. To announce a partnership with Xbox, they wanted us to come up with an idea that would not only connect with the gaming community but also resonate with everyone.

Taking inspiration from Xbox's iconic gamepad buttons, we turned Oreo cookies into a gaming experience. It wasn't just about new designs; we wanted to push the boundaries further. That's why we made a groundbreaking decision – to introduce not just one, but six different embossments. The cookies got an innovative role by allowing players to create their very own cheat codes.

These cheat codes unlocked a range of exciting prizes, including exclusive in-game content for Xbox's beloved franchises and even personalized gaming consoles.

To spread the cheat codes, a campaign was launched in 24 countries.

By using machine learning for analyzing the cookies and a native web platform, we achieved a high-level of accuracy in detecting different embossments.

Native Web Platform

In partnership with Xbox Studios, we developed exclusive in-game content for three of the Xbox’s top-played games: Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite and Sea of Thieves.


So far, over 800,000 items were unlocked, and we are still counting.
