EIGHT Food Show FINDS

This past week was one of my favorite of the year — the National Restaurant Association, the International Wine, Spirits and Beer, and the Sweets and Snacks shows all rolled into town! (It's been known as Food/Booze/Candy Week. Hang on to your diet!)

Since I am currently heavy with child, I didn't attend the Spirits show. Not because I don't think that a pregnant woman shouldn't have a glass of wine every now and then, but because I just didn't want to deal with the quizzical stares I'd inevitably receive. It's one thing to order a malbec while sitting down at a restaurant — quite another to be eyeing vodka displays with my belly outtothere.

That's ok! The Restaurant and Sweets & Snacks shows more than made up for it! Here are some of my favorite finds from the week:

Sweets & Snacks Show

@NibMor vegan, non-GMO, and gluten free drinking choco and chocolate bars. Great texture and flavor. The drinking chocolate is great iced...not too sweet!

 

@popgourmet Rogue Blue Cheese Popcorn. Good bite of blue cheese, no chalky finish. Non-GMO.

 

@purechocolatelv gorgeous and delicious truffles. Smooth texture with fruit and spice flavors that pop. Bonus points for the friendly Latvian dudes working their booth.

 

@eatwhatever mints. Genius 2-step process: A gel cap for your tummy, then a mint for your mouth. Vegan, gluten and sugar free.

 

National Restaurant Association Show

Tasty kale snacks by @bradsrawfoods

 

@funleys Peanut Butter Stix in the Mud. All-natural and so delicious.

 

@hailmerrysnacks Miracle Tart. Vegan, Gluten free, and VERY rich, thanks to coconut oil.

 

@joialife sodas. Lime/Hibiscus/Clove was my favorite. Good depth of flavor, not overly sweet.
