Fancy a yummy El Mud? Or how about a sweet Del Mu?
Fazer puts words and letters in a whirl – Dumle’s makeovers inspire free thinking
Dumle encourages people to enjoy life and maintain a childlike sense of wonder. Fazer is packaging its popular Dumle sweets in new wrappings with playful anagrams. After all, life shouldn’t be taken too seriously!
At the beginning of the year, Fazer will bring its well-loved Dumle Original sweets to shop shelves in completely new packaging. So instead of the familiar Dumle label, light-hearted consumers will be attracted to the highly popular brand under new names: Del Mu, El Mud, Dmule, Le Dum, Mulde and Le Mud.
With a bit of playfulness and ingenuity, the over 300 different words found on the confectionery wrappers can be used to make all manner of fun phrases, haiku poems and much more. This is a tasty new take on fridge magnet poetry. The result of this word wizardry is that familiar phrases get new, surprising forms.
”A yummy mind will give you a positive life, or how does it go? This is an internet phenomenon, and there is no end of aphorisms and quotes that adults love to read and share,” says Fazer’s Senior Brand Manager Kirsi Nordberg. “And because Dumle is against getting old and dull, we decided to give the trend a new lease of life. We’re excited to see what inventive consumers will come up with,” Nordberg says, and has a simple message to Dumle fans: “Never grow up!”
Dumle Twisted Cooking gives kitchen creativity a new slant
Dumle has been making life a little sweeter for decades now. The key to Fazer Dumle Original’s winningly distinctive flavour is a secret aroma that was the result of two years of careful development. The hugely popular sweets are sold in more than 30 countries. Around 380,000,000 of the Dumle original sweets are made every year at Fazer’s factory in Vaarala, Vantaa.
Dumle’s unique and trusted taste is also continuing to make its mark on the world of cooking. Dumle Twisted Cooking’s whimsical experiments create new dimensions for traditional delicacies. Check out our jaunty recipe for cream puffs below. You’ll find the instructions here!
