Why confectionery can be the most memorable promotional gift

We can all remember our favourite childhood dessert, and the chocolate bar that we’d always pick after spending an agonising ten minutes choosing in the corner shop. Or perhaps it’s the penny sweets our grandparents handed to us in twisted paper bags on Sunday afternoons.

Confectionery is an incredibly powerful marketing tool, because it takes advantage of the direct and visceral link between taste and memory.

Giving a person something to eat is ingrained in our culture as a welcoming act – and the pleasure of tasting something delicious remains in your memory long after you have eaten it.

To put it simply, people will remember you for making them feel good. And confectionery creates a memorable and lasting impression in a way that no other promotional product does.

This is perhaps why, according to Mintel, the sugar and gum confectionery market is estimated to see a rise in value of 10.4% between 2015 and 2020. Within the promotional merchandise industry, confectionery is in the top ten product categories and has seen steady growth since 2012.

We love the sweet stuff

To be honest, at Bounce Creative Designs we don’t need any convincing of the value of promotional confectionery. We simply love sweet treats – and we have the range to prove it!

Our confectionery range encompasses everything from budget-friendly boiled sweets to very high-end high-cocoa chocolate, with plenty of sugar-free and vegetarian variants. We also offer a great choice of colours, and a multitude of branding options.

In addition to covering all the bases, we do a great line of innovative confectionery. Here are five unique confectionery choices we wholeheartedly recommend.

  1. The perfect pick for smaller budgets

If you’re looking for affordable sweets but still want something unique, our tasty fruit Atomz sweets could be exactly what you need. Atomz are small fruit sweets presented in a familiar retail-style flip-top plastic transparent case, which has a fantastic print area.

The best part is, you can choose the colour of the sweets to match your brand colours. Perfect for a logo, or a sports team’s brand colours.

  1. Edible products to create a buzz on stands

Let’s be honest, you’re never too old to get a kick out of being given free sweets! And at a trade show or exhibition where 490 stands out of 500 will give away a pen and post-it notes or keyrings… something edible and slightly unusual is sure to attract people over.

If you want to take this a step further, you can try something unique. We can offer printed apples, flying saucers and marshmallows (with one-colour edible print) – which are all perfect for creating a buzz on a stand.

  1. Sweets in eco-friendly packaging

We always advocate choosing eco-friendly products and reducing plastic waste, and you can achieve this with our biodegradable plastic pots of high-quality jelly beans, natural fruit-flavoured sweets, and chocolate beans. Once the sweets are eaten, the packaging is fully compostable. Minimum order quantities start as low as 25 or 50.

  1. Super-cute retro Kilner jars

If you’re a fan of retro milk bottles and drinking cocktails from mason jars, we predict you’ll fall in love with our sweets in Kilner jars (with full-colour printed labels). We have a range of sizes, and whilst bigger means more sweets – the mini Kilner jars are super-cute!

You can choose sweets from a standard menu including marshmallows and sugar hearts, or a premium menu including gummi bears and liquorice allsorts. These jars of sweets are surprisingly accessible, with minimum order quantities starting from as low as 25 jars.

The fact that the jar can be kept and reused afterwards both increases the longevity of the gift, and makes it a zero-waste option.

  1. Sweets made in your own bespoke shape

If you want to show off a bit and get your brand noticed, we can help you develop your very own special shape of sweets in a fully brandable mint tin. If you have sufficient lead time and can order at least 1,000 tins, you can have a lot of fun here!

We create a mould especially for you, and use it to make sugar-free mints – anything from hairdryer-shaped mints for a hairdressing company to house-shaped mints for an estate agent.

But don’t worry if your business is not quite as tangible as these examples! We love a challenge, and we can help you come up with the perfect shape to represent what you do.

Low MOQs make fantastic branding accessible

One of the best things about ordering from us is that we make retail-quality branding accessible, with far lower minimum order quantities than you’ll see elsewhere. Plus, due to our unique links with retail factories, our confectionery not only looks retail-quality, but it tastes retail-quality.
