Novelty confectionery

Hancocks Cash & Carry has launched a

confectionery range for hungry lovers, including

candy bras, candy g-strings and candy posing pouches.

It is perfect for off-licences which are geared towards adult purchases, and there's no doubt this will draw attention to any retailer's confectionery range, says purchasing director Richard Brittle.

Each product costs £2.45

and has a recommended retail price of £4.99, giving retailers a 42.3 per cent margin.

Brittle adds: "Any retailer looking to offer a real point of difference

with their confectionery would do well to consider the Lovers Candy range, which is set to be a great talking point."
