Luxury Candy/Snack Brands


The goals of this research pertaining to luxury candy/snack brands in the U.S. are to (1) provide examples of their social media content and web content, (2) provide examples of their launch-specific digital content, (3) create case studies of how low-involvement brands have gained social media engagement, and (4) identify key messaging used around their launch or branding. This information will be used in creating a strategy for a competitor in the luxury candy/snack space.

  • The two Google Docs that we created can be used for additional examples of such content that we can complete with further research, as is outlined below.
