Trends from The Fancy Food Show

I sampled lots of cool products at the 55th Fancy Food show earlier this week, some interesting or tasty enough to warrant their own posts. For now, I'll share with you some overall trends.

1. Chocolate with sea salt
Including sofi award winners Mari's New York Caramel Sea Salt Brownie and John Kelly Chocolates Truffle Fudge Bites -Dark Chocolate with French Grey Sea Salt.

2. Chocolate with bacon
Including Vosges

3. Chocolate and caramels with spicy stuff

4. Blood orange
Including sofi award winners Sarabeth's Kitchen Blood Orange Marmalade and Au Printemps Gourmet/Brickston Fine Foods Caramelized Onion and Blood Orange Confit.

5. Drinks made from aloe
These looked like the stuff you put on after a sunburn and tasted like sugar.

6. Drinks made from coconut juice
These tasted like stuff you put on before a sunburn...and sugar.

Stay tuned for tips on some great food finds for yourself or for gifting and where to find them.
