We always enjoy attending the Winter Fancy Food Show! This year’s three day massive trade show filled two halls at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. Now in its 39th year, it was attended by almost 20,000 members of the Food Industry and showcased 80,000 Specialty Food & Beverage Products displayed by more than 1,300 exhibitors from around the world. The goal of exhibitors always includes catching the attention of Buyers from major retailers, collecting some intel on their competition and of course getting press on their products or services! Attendees want to see what is new and different that they can sell or imitate. We like to look for new trends, find out about products and of course love to sample the food.

This year we were again overwhelmed but still were able to find some exciting, new and delicious food and beverage items that we enjoyed. We appreciated that Tsar Nicoulai Caviar provided tastes of their elegant caviar which was excellent. We chatted with David Hendin from Calendar Islands Maine Lobsters who explained to us that the salt water is what adds to the fabulous taste of Maine lobsters. Virtuous Living showed their 100% organic spice blends called Love, Faith and Hope. We really enjoyed the BBQ and Chili Lime Veggie chips made by The Daily Crave, the hummus from Bolani Gourmet Afgan Food, as well as the new Ginger Sesame salad dressing from Terrapin Ridge Farms. Alo, one of our favorite beverages added a new flavor, Comfort, which is watermelon & peach which we loved!

We met quite a few sweet people, sampled some great new items and look forward to attending again next year and perhaps going to the Summer Fancy food Show in New York http://www.specialtyfood.com/fancy-food-show/summer-fancy-food-show/
