A Sweet Start to New Connections

In a recent campaign titled “Start Your Story With Hide & Seek,” Parle Platina aimed to leverage the popularity of their premium sweet cookie brand, Hide & Seek, to generate buzz and connect with a younger audience in India by positioning their cookies as a companion for initiating social interactions.

A Legacy of Sweetness

Parle Products, the company behind Parle Platina, has been a household name in India since 1929. Their Parle Hide & Seek cookies, launched in 1997, have become a beloved tea-time treat known for their rich cream and luscious chocolate coating.
