Clean Break Novelty Candy Packaging

Clean Break offers tongue-in-cheek parting gifts for that not-so-special someone. The concept is a line of confections, gift cards, and gift bags to deliver a "dear john" break-up message. Our hope is that mismatched lovers can share a laugh in an awkward moment, and perhaps even start a lasting platonic friendship.
