So you want to find cheap fundraising candy.
While the price is sometimes cheaper than name brands many fundraising specific candy lines are of high quality. The problem when you talk to your group about cheap fundraising candy is that many of them will immediately correlate cheap with inferior quality. That is not a good impression for your group and it is even worse if your customers think cheap candy is bad.
The fact is that rising commodity prices have virtually eliminated the existence of cheap fundraising candy. Mars has left the fundraising industry and Hershey’s is actually increasing the price and cost of their candy. They have decided that the days of $1 candy bars are quickly coming to an end. And that is not just through the fundraising distribution channel. People will soon find that $1 candy at the retail level will be gone soon too.
The new price point for name-brand candy will be $2 per candy bar. If people think that is too expensive and strictly look for cheaper fundraising candy than the name brands might actually leave the fundraising business completely.
Many people might say that it would be their loss but so many groups depend on the sale of candy for their operating funds. If all the name brands leave the industry it will have serious results. So instead of simply looking for cheap fundraiser candy, you should consider the best value for your customers. After all the best candy fundraisers are those where you sell all the candy you purchase not those where you pay the least amount of money for each candy bar.
