Working with global customers inevitably means that some projects will cross national borders, begging questions such as: Will an approach that works in New Jersey be appropriate for another country? Sometimes it will, but other times it will considerably lengthen the odds against success. I served as creative support for the German market for many years. Germans have rather specific flavor preferences. The relative popularity of different flavors is different than one finds in the United States. In my experience, the top 10 flavors, in descending order, are: strawberry, cheese, vanilla, orange, lemon, dairy, chocolate, chicken, apple and peach. Interestingly, some of these popular global flavors have a notably different profile in Germany.
