Good morning readers!
This is getting interesting. I’m not sure if I should blurt out yet another great idea, but I work with a woman who used to work at an ad agency on Madison Avenue in NYC and she gave me a great idea for the candy and a marketing plan. I’ll put it this way…Halloween is right around the corner 😀
What I love about this contest is that everyone is putting ideas out there and as far as I’m concerned any and all of them have potential. I told someone about my Death Candy idea and she said “No one will ever buy anything with the word death in it.” I said, “suck it, I disagree.” Maybe not everyone, but believe me, there are plenty of people that aren’t afraid of the word death, and if you are, get over it, it’s just a word. Death to Hollywood; Killer Candy. See? That’s fun! And it has the words DEATH and KILLER in it. Then she said, “What if someone buys your candy and then has a heart attack? You’ll be sued.” I asked her if she ever heard of an autopsy. Idiot.
This is America! There is a demographic for EVERYTHING!
Anyway, I gave some candy to my neighbors last night, who LOVED it and then proceeded to get into an argument over whether it should be Celestial and heavenly or Death-like with skulls. I sat back and listened, and was amused that it got a little heated.
I don’t think the decision will be made by tomorrow. I think we may have to extend the contest!
What image draws you in ??
One of my sisters suggested “lick or suck my balls” candy. Believe me, that would also sell to a certain demographic. So, let’s keep thinking outside the box, and by box I mean coffin :D.
Have a great day! (have I mentioned how much I love Canadian bacon?)
