Terpenes And Your Business: Candy Stores
Perhaps one of the hallmarks of the present age is America’s willingness to embrace its inner child. Every day, new stores open up that cater to adults who measure their age not by what’s on their driver’s license, but what’s their shoe size. A business trend that we’re particularly intrigued by is the development of candy stores for adults. Popping up all over the country, these boutique bonbon stores stock all the tasty treats that you loved as a kid and then some.
The stores appeal to more than just your sweet tooth, however, and for business owners looking for ways to distinguish their businesses from their competitors, you’ll want to engage every one of your customer’s senses. An easy way to do that, of course, is by offering terpenes at your candy store. Join True Terpenes as we explore why adding our terpenes for sale to your adult candy store might be just the treat you’re looking for.
A Fresh Take on the Willy Wonka Formula
Many of these adult candy stores began opening in the early 2010s. Capitalizing on a particular market niche as well as the expansion of social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram, the brilliant packaging and presentation of this new generation candy shops were met with near universal acclaim.
Many of these businesses attribute their success to a few key factors. For many, they believe it’s because they are filling a gap in the market for adult candy enthusiasts. Traditionally, “candy stores for adults” were often viewed as overly fancy, and complex. High-priced chocolates like truffles, cordials, and other nuanced treats may appeal to some, but they do not appeal to all. Instead, this new generation of candy stores for adults offers the very treats that your inner six-year-old craves most. From gummy bears and caramels to chocolate chips and more, these are the candies that we all want the most.
The other factor for their success is that they are reinventing chocolates to fit an adult crowd. It’s not uncommon to find alcohol or even cannabis-infused candy treats and many of the stores now. For many, these are flavors that they already enjoy the other way, and simply blending them together offers a fresh and immediate way to enjoy both flavors at once.
Finally, these stores share a taste for not only great treats but also great aesthetics. In many cases, packaging for these candy treats is nearly as enticing as the actual candies themselves. Bright colors in sleek boxes wrapped in bows decorate every corner of these high-end candy stores. When paired with popular candies and new recipes, this appealing packaging is truly irresistible to anyone.
Why Terpenes and Candy Are a Sweet Couple
Candy does different things for different people. For some, it’s a wonderful way to reward themselves after a long day. For others, it’s how they deal with stress and anxiety. For still more, it’s a way to connect with friends and family. No matter what it does, candy engages a variety of our senses. That’s why terpenes make such a great pair for your adult candy store.
For nearly every candy flavor and aroma there is a matching terpene that can enhance those flavors. In the right combinations, your customers can enjoy a heightened candy-tasting experience when they enjoy them alongside aromatic or diluted terpene oils.
Adding Terpenes to Your Candy
