Coming up with a creative idea for promotional candy to give out at a tradeshow or for a client gift is not as easy as it sounds. Most personalized candies are the same old thing – little mints in a white wrapper with a logo on it. Nothing that is really going to wow a prospective client into calling you or doing more business with you.
Here are 7 brilliant ideas companies came up with that are creative and fun ways to portray a brand on candy:
