As promised, here’s some of the sweet side of innovation that we experienced at this summer’s Fancy Food Show.
There is never a shortage of chocolate at the Fancy Food Show, and this year was no exception. I could not get enough of the Strawberry Rhubarb Pie bar. Yum.
If you’re a premium chocolate lover, then you’re undoubtedly well-versed in all the innovative flavor goodness that Vosges has to offer. Blood Orange Caramel? Yes, please! But the Smoke & Stout Caramel bar was my hands-down favorite!
There were a noticeable amount of snacks that were fruit and/or veggie based. This line-up from Nature Addicts boasts 100% fruit. While the Passion Mango Fruit Sticks were good, I couldn’t stay away from the Dark Chocolate Covered Orange Fruit & Chocolate.
Super Butter, indeed! This seed butter is peanut free, nut-free, gluten free and soy free. Roasted sunflower, sesame and flax seeds blend nicely for a low-fat (compared to peanut and other nut butters) seed butter. The Original Crunchy and Chocolate Creamy versions were spectacular!
If you’re a big tea or coffee fan, these treats are for you! Made with real coffee and tea ingredients, these all-natural sweet confections capture their namesake flavors so well. Perfect for when you’re craving the taste but don’t have the time for a cup.
Yep – that’s Chocolate Cheese Fudge you’re looking at! Sweet and savory meet up yet again for an incredibly indulgent hybrid snack. It was sampled with vanilla wafer cookies, but would also be a great pairing for graham crackers or fresh fruit.
