An unusual source of hand sanitizer
IT’SUGAR was on the cover of SFBW’s February issue for its rapidly growing candy store empire, but it also turns out to be a source of highly sought hand sanitizer.
A big banner ad on the IT’SUGAR website says, “Candy scented hand sanitizers available now.”
“Keep your hands clean and smelling great with your favorite candy-scented hand sanitizers. Set of four includes one each of Smarties, Icee, Dippin’ Dots and Mike and Ike. Each includes a silicone case with candy logo on front, which easily hooks onto your bags. Contains 65% alcohol,” the product description says. Each bottle is one ounce.
IT’SUGAR is based in Deerfield Beach and is owned by BBX Capital Corp. of Fort Lauderdale (NYSE: BBX).
The hand sanitizer shortage is so acute nationwide that some alcoholic beverage distilleries are starting to make hand sanitizers.
