Knoxville, TN June 10, 2009 (WiredPRNews.com) — Candy Blast, Inc. has developed a line of molded chocolate band-aids, Chocolate First Aid TM, to fill a void in the chocolate novelty market for gift basket companies and to provide an encouraging gift for consumers experiencing rough times. Because the product and its packaging are made in Tennessee, it has also helped provide work to local employees.
After a previous supplier of chocolate band-aids discontinued their product, Candy Blast founder, Yvonne Marsh, developed her own line of chocolate band-aids for Candy Blast to use in their encouragement and get well themed candy gift baskets and candy bouquets. Almost immediately, consumers began asking if they could purchase the chocolate band-aid boxes separately. “I could see that people were enjoying the fun novelty of the molded band-aids and the simple encouragement they provided in these trying economic times. I realized marketing the high-quality gourmet band-aids nationally would be a win-win for both the consumer and the local economy. It was important to me to have the entire product produced in Tennessee rather than outsourcing it to another country, even though it would have been more cost effective for us to do so.”
Chocolate First Aid TM, “The Ouchless Cure for Life’s Little Hurts” TM, can be purchased by consumers on the web site or by phone. Wholesale case pack pricing is available to qualified businesses.
Candy Blast, Inc. has been in business since 2004 and is locally owned and operated from Knoxville, TN. Candy Blast ships candy gift baskets, candy bouquets and party favors to all 50 states. For further information, contact Yvonne Marsh at 865-675-5519.
