A Sign of the Times (i.e., a Price Increase is coming 😶)
Hey all --
Thank you for being a loyal p.o.p. candy co. customer. As a small business, your satisfaction means so much to us, and we hope we’ve been successful in providing you with delicious butter crunch and exceptional customer service.
You have probably noticed rising prices over the last several weeks. From local markets and cafes to gas stations and major chains, cost increases have touched us all, and we are experiencing the same. In fact, the majority of ingredients we use to make our butter crunch, as well as its packaging, have increased in cost.
We have not raised our prices in years and have held off doing so for as long as we can. Now in 2022, we see that we have little choice but to do so to keep up with rising expenses.
However, to help all of us ease into this change, we're making the price increase in two steps, in the hopes that a second will not be needed. A small increase will begin Feb 1 and the other possibly sometime in the summer. Fingers are staying crossed that we can avoid a second increase.
We appreciate your understanding and continued business as we make this necessary change. Our goal is to continue bringing you the same quality product and service you have enjoyed.
Thanks so much.
Your friendly candymakers,
bill + rachel
