I went to Sam's Club sunday and bought a box of assorted brand name candy bars for $11 something and a box of assorted blow pops, 100 for $7.78 (I think). Michelle took them to school mon and sold 21 candy bars at $.75 and some blow pops for $.25 each. Since she only had 9 bars left, we went back to Sam's on monday and bought more. This time a box of Twix and another box of assorted bars but a different assortment. She called me after school and said she didn't count the bars sold but that she had around $50, which means about a $25 profit in 2 days time. (She still has to pay me back for the candy I purchased). I bought a small plastic see through container at Wal-Mart with a handle so she won't squish the candy and it's visible as well.
The school sells candy bars in their vending machines for $.75 and she is selling on her lunch hour and between classes. She goes to a high school with about 1200 students so it may take awhile before it gets old. The candy is marked for resale and the Sam's Club I bought them at showed the potential profit posted by selling the candy bars at $.75. Her big sellers are Twix and Snickers.
I told her if she can sell 30 a day, she may have $100 raised in 10-12 days. The blow-pops are selling slower, so maybe it wasn't the best idea.
I thought I'd pass this along for someone else to try.
