Taste Success With Your Own Custom Promotional Candy

We talk a lot about creating an experience for your customers and using the 5 senses to do it. One of our favorite senses to incorporate? Taste! The fastest way to your customers’ hearts may well be through yummy treats. To celebrate National Candy Month, learn how to use your sweet tooth to connect with customers. Check out our tips for marketing with candy, as well as our list of promotional candies you can customize. 

How to Promote With Candy

No matter what your dietary lifestyle and needs, everyone has a sweet tooth of some kind. It’s a biological imperative that we seek out sweet things, and our brains reward us with bursts of dopamine when we do. Taste also connects deeply to our memory because back when food was scarce, when you found something that tasted good, it was important to remember how to get more. Companies can take advantage of that by pairing their brand with sweet treats, creating happy mouths, minds, and memories with every giveaway. But what candy should you use, and how? 

First, consider your branding. Mints and chocolates are great for when you want to appeal to adults in a professional setting. Meetings, professional gifting, and big first impressions are all made sweeter with the subtle colors and rich flavors of personalized mints and chocolate truffles. Children, however, are all about the colors and sugar, making lollipops and jelly beans a big hit in pediatric services across industries. 

You should also think about when and how they will enjoy these treats. Will they be taking their generous gift box home? Tucking their trendy and convenient tin into their purse for travel? Taking secret bites of chocolate bar through a long meeting? When you match your delivery to the circumstance, customers are more able to enjoy their treat and your branding.
