Candyholics rejoice! BestSweet, a top confectionary manufacturer, is turning to you for creative, new ideas for products to add to one of their deliciously notable candy brands.
BestSweet works with leading consumer goods companies – including one of the world’s largest chains of ice cream specialty shops – to develop and create candies that satiate anyone’s sweet tooth. They currently manufacture, market and handle the national sales for the candy version of this leading ice cream brand’s confectionary offerings in a variety of its premium ice cream flavors. In candy aisles across the country, you can scoop up your favorite ice cream flavors in sugar and sugar-free varieties to please any palate on the go.
What BestSweet is looking for:
BestSweet is now turning to our Edison Nation members to find this leading ice cream brand’s next hit candy item that will appeal to the lucrative ‘tween consumer (ages 8-13). For this Live Product Search, BestSweet wants you to think outside the box of established candy varieties, such as Junior Mints® or Milk Duds®, and go beyond the M&Ms® pouch of candy-coated chocolates.
BestSweet is looking for your product concept ideas in sweet new flavors and in any shape or size. Whether its minis or bite-size squares, consider the whole package concept and your buyer. What new candy would grab the hard-to-catch attention of ‘tweens” and teens – and turn the head of BestSweet’s leading ice cream client?
