Sweets & Snacks Expo: Celebrities, innovation
2019-06-16

Recently, the Sweets & Snacks Expo took place at McCormick Place.

This year's event was more about innovation than ever, but also exhibited a healthy dose of nostalgia.

Winners in the Most Innovative Product Awards included Trolli Sour Crunchy Crawlers ( Best in Show ), Whole Raspberries Freshly Frozen & Immersed in Premium White and Dark Chocolate ( Gourmet/Premium ), Tic Tac X-Freeze ( Gum & Mints ), Kit Kat Duos Mint + Dark Chocolate ( Chocolate ) and Trolli Candy Corn ( Seasonal ), among others.

However, there were many other standouts, including Undercover Quinoa ( possibly the tastiest item there ), Zing Vitality Bar, Hero Jerky, Cynt-Sational Popcorn ( a vegan option with flavors like Sexy Firecracker and the Detroit Mix ) and Ginger Chews.

Celebrities were also present this year, including talk-show host Wendy Williams and tennis superstar Maria Sharapova. ( Read an interview with Williams at www.windycitymediagroup.com/lgbt/Wendy-Williams-talks-snacks-LGBT-pride/66166.html. )

Next year's event will take place May 19-21 at the same venue.
