Cinema Sensation new homemade chocolate bar from 2nd year students of Business Studies

Some of our 2nd year Business Studies students have been very busy making their own chocolate bar! Whilst learning about the various stages of idea development, they came up with their product 'Cinema Sensation'. Inspired by a trip to the cinema, this is a Cadbury's Chocolate bar with Nestlé Maltesers and Manhattan salted popcorn. During Home Economics class, the production team created the bar & the following morning the packaging team arrived to pack and label the product (whilst wearing PPE to simulate the factory experience!). The girls also received some mentoring from Adam Silver, owner of The Candy Box who gave them tips on how to make and market their creation. They also completed some field research to get feedback from their target market about the product (77% of the 60 people surveyed said they would buy the bar!). Congratulations to all the girls who took part and demonstrated their innovation, creativity and commitment to executing their idea. We look forward to seeing what they come up with next!
