Research Suggestions and Strategies

Ferrero Rocher is one of the biggest chocolate brands around Canada. Valentines Day and holidays in general, are always associated to chocolates and desserts. This makes it a perfect time for our product to be released as many people, couples, as well as people who are single, always buy chocolates at this time of year, promising us a successful sale on our product.

Social Media

A great example is Twitter. Many people, especially towards the younger side, use Twitter to catch up with the news. As well as find and follow the new trends/items. Many Twitter users are able to access our twitter ( @Blissfulboxx ) for more information about the product, product launches, sales, coupons, and discounts.

Indirect Competition

An indirect competition would be any type of candy. Although candy and chocolate fall under the same category for “sweets” they don’t share similar tastes which make them different cravings. Microwavable food is also an indirect competition for the Blissful Box because it doesn’t share the same food properties as it does with our box. This is more of a meal while the DIY box is just for being fun and creative.

STORAGE

How and where to store DIY kit:

  • Chocolate bowls stays fresh in cool areas and at room temperature.
  • Keep away from direct sunlight, and protect from moisture.
  • When refrigerating or freezing chocolate, make sure it is sealed in an airtight container
  • Served best when eaten straight after creating your bowl
  • Do not open a bowl if it will not be eaten directly after or the day of
  • Always allow chilled chocolate to come to room temperature before enjoying it; cold chocolate doesn’t melt or disperse flavor as nicely.
