Boutique shops offer art-infused edibles
Implications - Battling the idea that sweet indulgences are meant for children, boutique confectioners are infusing these treats with elegance. This combines physical, taste-based indulgence with visual indulgence, providing extra value for older consumers -- Millennials in particular -- for whom indulgence is defined by a connection to status, experience, and value. This multi-leveled approach to the concept of treating oneself grants the penny-pinching Millennial an extra level of permission to indulge.
Workshop Question - In what ways could you combine different features or elements of your products and services to elevate the experience?
