Winning an Academy Award is the pinnacle achievement for actors around the world – it solidifies their place on top of the entertainment world. For businesses, being a part of the giveaways during the award show weekend is just like winning one of the gold statues. How? The extra sales that inevitably come from being associated with 2015 Oscar winners like Julianne Moore and Eddie Redmayne.
That’s what Massachusetts candymakers Shauna Iannuzzi and Melissa Diminico are banking on. They were enlisted to provide 15 celebrity VIPs with a special box of caramels made by The Candy Dish, located in North Andover. The two created the caramels, hand-dipped in milk and dark chocolate, for a certain guests that checked into the Beverly Hills Hotel.
As for the gold boxes? They enlisted the help of Patricia Martini with Soiree, Andover – an AccuCut customer – to make the glam packaging.
And yes, she used an AccuCut die to create the boxes!

Patricia thought the AccuCut Box-Pedestal die (BX108CSJ) was the perfect home for those decadent chocolates – decked out in Oscar gold, of course. She also used the AccuCut Seals-Tag-2 1/4" x 1 1/4" (Pinnovation) die (S1226SJ) to create the tags.
Beautiful! Read all about how the partnership came about over on the Boston Globe website.
Here’s hoping both The Candy Dish and Soiree, Andover see revenue growth with their brush with A-list clientele.
