Sweet Factory® and Sour Power® – A “Wild” Weekend

Our friends at Sweet Factory® had a “Wild” weekend over the Labor Day holiday! The Sweet Factory® sampled our newest Sour Power® Wild Cherry Belts to all customers.  The stores used creative ways to attract customers including balloon hats! Looks like a fun time had by all! Pictures below are from the Reno, NV and San Diego, CA stores.

Sour Power® Belts are highlighted as a top-seller in the bulk category at Sweet Factory®.  Since 1985, Sour Power® has offered an assortment of shapes, packaging, and mouth-watering flavor varieties that people can’t get enough of!

Sour Power® Dress at Sweets & Snacks Expo 2014

Terese McDonald, founder of the Chicago-based Candyality retail chain (www.candyality.com), created her third Fashion Retrospective at the 2014 Sweets & Snacks Expo in Chicago. The dresses are designed and constructed using candy and snack wrappers. This year we were proud to be included among the seven original dresses with a fabulous Sour Power® gown, complete with matching shoes! The strapless dress and shoes were constructed by cutting out the Sour Power® burst design from wrappers and overlaying them on top of each other. Sour Power® Blue Raspberry Individually Wrapped Belts were the finishing touch as a mermaid-style hem at the bottom. The dress was a show-stopper and took the spotlight front and center among all of the dresses at the exhibit. The dress will be featured in Candyality’s Michigan Avenue store in June.
