The campaign drove over 175.3MM impressions and over 61,600 social interactions, with the #GoDark Earth Hour Event engaging over 2,500 attendees. Notable media coverage included Huffington Post, Los Angeles Times, CBS San Francisco (KPIX-CBS TV), 7x7 and the Sacramento Bee. This awareness and engagement effectively doubled sales for Intense Dark chocolate during the campaign.

The Challenge

Ghirardelli Chocolate Company wanted to generate awareness and interest in its Intense Dark chocolate products within its core local San Francisco market and nationally. The challenge was to drive consideration for its Intense Dark chocolate to increase sales.

The Process

The strategy was centered around the perfect opportunity for consumers to slow down and savor the dark with Ghirardelli Intense Dark chocolate, Earth Hour. The campaign encouraged consumers nationally and locally to #GoDark with Intense Dark chocolate for Earth Hour.


Nationally, through on and offline promotion, consumers were encouraged to participate at home with fun activities in the dark, such as a candlelit dinner party or game night and share their photos on social using #GoDark. Locally, we invited consumers to join us at Ghirardelli Square for a dark chocolate party in the dark.


As home to one of the country’s most iconic light displays, Ghirardelli joined the movement by turning off the lights on the Ghirardelli sign in San Francisco’s Ghirardelli Square for Earth Hour. The event included dark chocolate tastings, ‘dark’ yoga sessions with Athleta, a candlelit luminary labyrinth, and much more. 

The Solution

The campaign drove over 175.3MM impressions and over 61,600 social interactions, with the #GoDark Earth Hour Event engaging over 2,500 attendees. Notable media coverage included Huffington Post, Los Angeles Times, CBS San Francisco (KPIX-CBS TV), 7x7 and the Sacramento Bee. This awareness and engagement effectively doubled sales for Intense Dark chocolate during the campaign.
