McCormick & Co have come up with the idea of selling single portions of spices attached to a recipe card. Each card contains up to 6 different spices along with a quick and easy recipe to follow. The idea being that people will be tempted to try new spices by using the samples and then go on to buy full packs of the spices they most use and like.
It has got me thinking though, what else could you use this concept for? Obviously sample packs have been available for years across many sectors of the market, from foods to skincare and most areas in between. This is more structured though, more like a ‘kit’ to encourage people to try new things.
What about using the same idea to create cocktails, or how about a card/pack encouraging people to try a new cleansing routine containing shampoo, body wash and a deo. Or what about a card containing a sample of every shower gel variant in the range?
The combinations are endless, you just need to use your imagination. (Jane Bear)
