Did you know there are mints made exclusively for funeral homes? Yes, you can now find BereaveMints given out by funeral directors and limo drivers, providing a soothing lozenge for mourning families.
At the National Funeral Directors and Morticians Association convention and expo, I spoke with Jim Finelli, VP of Vending/Food Service Sales for Promotion in Motion, the makers of the mints as well as other candies and fruit snacks.
BereaveMints were featured in last year’s NFDA new products showcase, and they’ve been on the market for five to six months so far. There’s been a great reception of the product. Finelli is introducing the mints at state and national funeral industry expos.
Each BereaveMint in peppermint flavor has a living tree or a dove on the wrapper, making it apropos for all funeral homes. They also produce a Tuxedo Chocolate Mint flavor and RefreshMints Fancy Mixed Fruit Drops.
If you have have diabetic family members, BereaveMints can be a life saver. I had a few of the hard candies in my purse when my dad had a low sugar reaction, feeling weak and sweating profusely. I gave him one of the fruit drops and he recovered quickly.
Promotion in Motion is looking for distributors who sell funeral products to carry the mints, so if you’re a funeral products distributor, get in touch! The person to call is Jeff Scudillo, VP of Special Markets, at 201-784-5800 x6204.
