With the start of 2015, comes our brand new catalog for spring, and we couldn't be more excited! Along with top-selling favorites, classic stand-by fundraising ideas, and new items you simply won't find a more cohesive, up to date, and top selling line of fundraising products.
Let's introduce the new additions!
Smart Variety is a brand new addition to our fundraising collection. This case is full of treats that meet the Smart Snacks In School program guidelines so your group can still sell during school hours without restrictions. All items are deliciously name brand and have our low selling price, so you are sure never to miss out on a sale.
Choice Variety is another addition to the Smart Snacks approved fundraisers. The three largest, top selling items: Cheez-It® Whole Grain, Welch's® Fruit Snacks, and Rice Krispies® Treats Whole Grain, join forces to create this powerhouse fundraiser.
A Plus Variety® has a huge selection of items in each case, so there's a snack for every customer! You can't go wrong with variety, and A Plus delivers on that and then some.
Choco Blast Variety is all about the chocolate! From cookies to candy this is your one stop, chocolate fundraising stop. Huge snack time favorites like Reese's® and Oreo® make this case a name brand success, and all items are large sized for more selling power.
Sweet & Salty Variety mixes things up! Not only is this a brand new variety but it has brand new items like Laffy Taffy®, Pringles®, and Fun Dip. All items are sized BIG to make you more profit.
Big 4 Variety is a heavy hitting team of the top four selling snacks from our fundraising lineup. Mini Oreo®'s, Cheez-It®, Orchard Fruit® Snacks, and Cheddar Cheese Goldfish® come together to make an 88 count case with a low selling price for easy fundraising.
Celestial Candles spring brochure is here! Premium glass candles fill the inside of this brochure along with sand diffusers, a ceramic plug-in warmer, and wax melts. This order taking brochure costs nothing to start; they are free to order, and you only pay for the product you sell. Each item is 50% profit to you, making this one of the fastest and easiest ways to bring in profit.
All of the varieties listed above (and then some) can be found in our Spring 2015 catalog, which you can download from here. You can also request a free one to be mailed to you. Call 1-800-500-1234, and one of our fundraising staff will be happy to walk you through your next fundraiser.

Welcome 2015! A new year and a new semester bring new ideas for fundraising! In previous posts, we've emphasized the benefit of coordinating your fundraiser with a holiday theme, and Valentine's Day is no different. In fact, it is one of the better holidays to coordinate with your candy fundraiser. Items like chocolate bars, chocolate roses, and lollipops are great little treats to make into candy grams that friends can give to one another or a sweetheart. Boost sales even more by adding some valentine's flair with our free download & print chocolate bar wraps and lollipop tags.
Once you've downloaded the wraps, follow the instructions to cut them apart. We recommend having a table or location setup when selling these to make the bar wrapping easier. Once your customer has selected their chocolate bar, they can select a wrap design and then you/your group helpers can place and adhere that wrap around the bar for the customer.
If you are considering pre-wrapping your chocolate bars prior to selling, keep a few things in mind:
- If you are selling a single chocolate bar flavor, make sure you have a sign(s) stating they are chocolate bars
- If you are selling multiple flavors of chocolate bars, you may want to wrap each flavor in its own design so you and your customers can easily distinguish between them or keep them in labeled boxes by flavor
Don't worry, we have not forgotten about chocolate roses or lollipops! You can download and print our fun valentine's tags to use. Follow the how-to instructions on our previous blog post here. Similar to the chocolate bars, you can pre-attach the tags to the lollipops or let your customers choose the tag they wish for you to attach. You can go even further with your lollipops and create a festive and fun bouquet. Group several pops together and secure with ribbon of your choice. Be sure to price these accordingly, adding up the selling price of each item you include in the bouquet. Further instructions on making the lollipop bouquets can be found here.
We've also created valentine's themed sale signs for you to use in addition to the tags and wraps. Download and print these $1 signs or $2 signs to stick up on your table setup. You can even place them on or inside candy or snack fundraising boxes as a decorative and informative eye catcher.

The chillier it gets outside; the more people move inside. Use this to your advantage when planning your next fundraiser. Inside events give you great access to a stream of people in a condensed area, meaning they are far more likely to pass your way while attending.
Events or happenings in your area that you could fundraise at:
- Craft fairs - schools, churches, and community centers most often hold these in November and December
- Holiday plays, musicals, or recitals - schools, performance centers, auditoriums
- Movie nights
- Trivia nights
- Shopping malls
- Holiday activities - light displays, Santa dinners
If you are connected to any of these events or venues then, you may be able to fundraise at the events for free. If not, try reaching out and explaining your cause. It doesn't hurt to ask, and they may be accommodating once they hear your cause.
What fundraising products sell best this time of year? The answer can be based on the event. Item's like our $1 Chocolate Bars, $2 Chocolate Bars, Chocolate Pretzel Rods, lollipops, key chains and lanyards all make not only great moment of snacks, but also great stocking stuffers. Items like these may work best at local fairs and holiday activities. Quick treat time items like our Supreme Selection, Snack Variety, and School Store will likely have higher sales at events like movie and trivia nights or performances where food is allowed. But, get creative with your fundraising offerings! We have no minimum order on any of our products so, for example, you can order a case of chocolate bars and a case of our Supreme Selection to have the best of both worlds! Providing a variety is always a good thing.
You can further spice up your indoor fundraising with our printable lollipop tags, that you can download here. You can tie these to lollipops, pretzel rods or even chocolate bars with ribbons (see our previous blog post here for more on holiday fundraising).
