Last week's Winter Fancy Food Show was full of chips, crackers, and a number of new food trends, but if there's one product that always characterizes the show, it has to be cheese: it's everywhere. As cheese lovers, we tasted as many as we could spot, and discovered nine that are so memorable, we guarantee they're worth hunting down.
As the premier specialty food showcase in the country, the NASFT Fancy Food Show highlights more than 80,000 products during each event. With so many new sundries, there are bound to be at least a few trends. Last year, lavender, pickles, and flatbreads were everywhere, and while those are still hot, we also happened to catch a whole new batch of trends. Click through to see what was hot at the show — and is likely headed to a store near you.
Earlier this week we spent two enthralling days perusing the 2013 Winter Fancy Food Show's cavernous exhibition halls to catch a glimpse of what's new and notable in the food world, and determine which products are worthy of keeping on hand for everything from culinary experiments to snack-attack spells. It may have been a tough task to narrow down our short list of favorite flavors, but we survived. Rest easily while clicking through our top picks; any products you might be compelled to try yourself are worth your hard-earned dollars — they're Yum-approved!
Food, glorious food! There was plenty to eat at this week's 2013 Winter Fancy Food Show. For two days we grazed on cheese, chocolate, tea, and everything in between. Take a look at some of the showcases that made us chuckle, products so good we went back for seconds, and other behind-the-scenes photos. Prepare to hear your stomach grumble!
