#3: Chupa Chups

Chupa Chups came up with a pretty clever advertisement to demonstrate that their candies are sugar-free. They created it such that even without saying a word, you can assume that it doesn’t contain sugar. That’s why they were able to write “It’s sugar-free.” In such small font and not distract from the aesthetics.
