Creative Concepts is a Birmingham-based company which markets "Pucker Powder" candy dispensers and "Pucker Pieces" candies. The company was formed in 1997 by Scott and Kathy Green, formerly of Jammin Gym. They started out by designing a machine for creating sand art, but quickly hit on the more profitable idea of filling it with colored candy powders. The machines, installed at theme parks, science museums, gift shops, toy stores, convenience stores and candy shops, have proven popular. The company has expanded its distribution to Europe and Asia.

As of 2010, Creative Concepts employs 27 year-round workers with additional seasonal employees. It is headquartered at 1500 Georgia Road in Irondale.

The company promotes volunteerism by paying staffers to work on projects that benefit the public.
