If you’re located near a school then catering your Pick and Mix selection for the tastes of children could boost your sales. Younger customers often like fizzy, sour, gummy or novelty Pick and Mix; for example, cola bottles, fried eggs, Haribo, flying saucers, rainbow belts or candy jewellery. Hancocks stocks a huge range of children’s’ favourites as well as a few newer varieties, such as our selection of unusual animal shaped sweets or foam sweets.
If your target market is more grown up then you’ll want to target different confectionery. One key trend for older customers is nostalgic and old fashioned sweets. Liquorice, Jelly Beans, bon bons, rhubarb and custard, pear drops – these are just a few of your options. These sweets are often ones fondly remembered from childhood, however they also appeal to the wider ‘vintage’ trend long present on the high street.
Pick and Mix is a key area of sales for many independent retailers. Once you know which market you want to target, you can start to compile the best range of sweets for your customers. Retailers are often able to achieve margins of up to 70% with Pick and Mix, so it’s worth getting your range of confectionery right. Hancocks can help you do just that.
