Are we happy it’s Friday?? Yes we are! And I have some more positive feedback on the candy. I brought some to my job and one of the women I work with ate a piece and said, “Wow, this is really good. I would buy this.” And then she went back for more. She couldn’t stop eating it. She practically ate the whole bag, and then she felt sick!
Now, that’s what I call a good testimonial, and a woman after my own heart. My boss, who’s a real health nut, ate a piece, ate another piece and then came sniffing around for more after lunch. I told him it was in the freezer because the candy is even better frozen. Did I tell you that you can eat it frozen or at room temperature? Frozen is my favorite.
Back to the real issue: naming this sweet treat! All of you have given me so many good suggestions, and it’s almost like we’re split down the middle. Some of us are more drawn to death and skulls and some of us are more drawn to celestial stuff. You know, this is all my parents fault. If they hadn’t named me Celeste, this wouldn’t be a problem. Unfortunately, I’m no closer to actually naming it. I have some good marketing ideas, as many of you do too. My sister wants to wrap them up like testicles and put them in a “sack”! I think a couple of testicles are much scarier than a skull head 😀
What about “Celestial Death Candy” to really confuse people? Heaven and death in the name? I know I probably have to let go of “death candy” no matter how much I like it. But I love the tagline – candy to die for! But I also like the idea of somehow combining death and heaven because that’s what is fun about advertising – it plays on people’s psyche.
How about “Celestial Candy – the candy you’ll eat in heaven…unless you go to hell (which is probably where I’ll be making the candy). Too long? Do you think hell has a commercial kitchen?
Think about this…doing a big Halloween push with skulls etc., and after Halloween is over, take a celestial turn?
Have a tasty Friday and a great weekend! 😛
