Confectionery distributor Nassau Candy has acquired AmuseMints, a leading mint manufacturer to the souvenir, specialty retail and gifting industries.
AmuseMints has been a fixture in the souvenir market since 2004 thanks to its creative packaging, artwork, creative design library, licensed portfolio, and short-run custom capabilities. Its products can be found in theme parks, national parks, airports, gift shops, zoos, and other tourist destinations.
The newly-formed entity will become Nassau Candy's souvenir division, AmuseMints Sweets & Snacks. Combining AmuseMints with its manufacturing and customization capabilities, Nassau Candy's goal is to create a one-stop shop of confectionery and snack products to the souvenir industry.
“We have been looking for a strategic partner in the souvenir industry for quite some time” says Lance Stier, a principal of Nassau Candy. “AmuseMints has a great following in this industry and we are truly excited to make this the cornerstone of a new souvenir division.”
AmuseMints joins Nassau Candy's thousands of other confectionery, gourmet, and natural foods SKUs, which include major brands like Jelly Belly, Haribo, Clif Bar, and Lindt.
“My team is excited to become a part of the Nassau Candy family,” says Kip Zsupnik Jr., president of AmuseMints. “Our partnership will allow our company to have more than just mints. It will be business as usual except we will have a great deal more to offer our customers. Our goal is to become the largest supplier of confectionery and snack products to the souvenir industry.”
The company will roll out a new line to the souvenir industry at the Las Vegas Souvenir and Resort Gift Show in September.
