For our last glimpse into this summer’s Fancy Food Show, here’s a handful of products that really stood out to me either because they are riding a high trend or because they are incredibly unique…
Well it’s no secret that yogurt is among the hottest categories out there right now, and we know that a lot of the activity has been in the Greek sector. But lately, I’ve been noticing an increase in launches of yogurts made with other sources of milk besides cow – mostly goat and sheep. This Pure Sheep’s Milk Yogurt by Only Ewe (hah! Get it?) is super smooth and creamy. The Blueberry Rosemary and Cranberry Peach Ginger are especially well-crafted, thoughtful flavors.
Sir Kensington’s lineup of natural, gourmet condiments are as delicious as they are impressive. I have a soft spot for the Chipotle Mayo.
Aimed at the consumer wanting to make better-for-you food trade-offs, the VitaEgg flatbread sandwich offers all of the nutrients of the egg yolk without the affiliated cholesterol, fat and calories. VitaPizza and VitaCakes are also in the lineup of Vitalicious products.
Okay…ice cream and wine? At the same time? Where do I sign up?! Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream is a 15% butterfat wine infused ice cream that contains up to 5% alcohol by volume! Some of the flavors include Cherry Merlot, Chocolate Cabernet and Peach White Zinfandel. I’ll “cheers” to that!
These Grow kits are genius! Green, convenient, easy, fun and rewarding! You can grow your own flowers, cooking herbs or cocktail-specific herbs just about anywhere in your home or even office thanks to the eco and space-friendly egg-carton type containers. So clever, innovative and on-trend. One of my favorite stand-out products this year, for sure!
Like every year before it, this was another Fancy Food Show to remember and I’m already looking forward to the tasty innovations that next year will bring!
