The Traveling with Candy Balancing Act

Each day a the All Candy Expo I balanced my sense of discretion with each candy booth’s generosity.

I think the candy companies won.

Each attendee was given a small bag to put their samples in on the floor. The same bag was used each day and it was about the size of a shoe box for some nice women’s dress shoes. Basically, not too big.

Many booths had “eat it here” samples, little cups or sections of their products for sampling. I generally didn’t eat much while on the floor of the show, so I didn’t go for those often. (I couldn’t bring them home, they didn’t have the ingredients and nutrition info on them.)

imageI was pretty picky about what I picked up, but often when I’d get into conversations with the candy purveyors, they’d offer me full sized samples. A 6 ounce bag of some new gummi spiders, a stack of six 3.5 ounce chocolate bars, a 5 ounce bag of delicious dark chocolate coated toffee almonds or a half a dozen full-sized Ritter Sport bars. It adds up. So somewhere around the middle of the morning my bag would be full and probably weigh about five pounds. I had a benefit over most attendees, somewhere to stash the contents of my bag. I’d go to the press room and empty it out and leave it with my other stuff (my jacket, etc.) and go back out onto the floor.

At the end of the day I’d be hoofing it back to the hotel with 15 or so pounds of candy along with a sampling of press kits which are also heavy in their own right.

So with a little math you can tell where this is going. At the end of the show I had at least 45 pounds of candy, probably closer to 55 pounds (if you include the press kits, which as I said in my defense, are heavy).

I planned well, or at least I thought. I brought one large suitcase to Chicago. I packed my 8 days worth of clothes (I was heading to visit family in the Midwest when I was done) and another smaller, collapsible suitcase in the bottom. I had my laptop messenger bag and a purse. Once back at the hotel I tried to pack all my stuff. It all technically fit, but I was concerned that the large bag was going to be over the weight limit. If figured if I could carry the large suitcase down the three flights of stairs to the lobby, it couldn’t be that heavy. Certainly not over 50 pounds.

I got to the airport dragging things behind me (may I thank the fellow who invented the wheel at this moment?) I found that I was correct ... my luggage weight 101.5 pounds. However, the large bag was 61 pounds and the little one was over 39. (The good news, apparently, is that I can carry 61 pounds down three flights of stairs!)

Luckily the nice agent at American Airlines said I could take a moment and transfer some things around instead of charging me for being overweight (that’d be $50). She even helped me by pointing out the items she thought were heaviest. I stuffed some of the heavier things into my carry on and in the end each of my bags was balanced at 47 pounds each. (Yes, I was now toting an additional seven pounds in my carry ons.) I thanked the ticket agent for her patience and help and gave her a full-sized Hershey’s Cacao Reserve nibby bar. This was when she told me that she only worked part time for American Airlines. Her day job was as a dental hygienist. She said she would have given me a toothbrush if she had one on her!

At my brother’s (where the guest room is sadly on the third floor, but happily he carries my bags up for me) I took all my candy out and organized it and repacked it, using a bathroom scale to make sure that each bag was 45 pounds. I left plenty of chocolate and candy there, too. I gave my mother three full sized dark bars plus a box of Russell Stover Private Reserve chocolates that I just wasn’t going to get to review anytime soon (but I’ll go buy at some point). I left only a few things at my brothers ... sadly I didn’t find his new perfect candy bar for him at the Expo. He was a Snickers Cruncher fan. I’ll have to keep working on it.

It took about three days after I got home for the sore shoulders to go away (carry forty pounds on them regularly takes a while to get over). It’s been 10 days since the Expo ended and I can now say that my feet don’t hurt any longer. Maybe next year I won’t walk that mile to and from the convention center and just splurge on a cab.

In case you’re wondering, this is what 50 pounds of candy looks like, all dumped out on my dining room table (which is 50 inches around, by the way).

In case you’re wondering the result of this trip on my weight ... I’ve lost four pounds. Don’t worry, I have a notion of where to find them.

This Week in Candy - Candy is better when you sleep in your own bed

If you’ve already entered my candy drawing, you should definitely go enter Candy Addict’s. He has far more candy that I’ve got, so it should be a windfall for all FOUR winners.

Hammond's Candy StickChocolate Bytes is also running a drawing for some cute See’s Foil Wrapped Autumn Leaves. Check that out and enter! (Deadline is Sunday.)

X-Entertainment marks the beginning of Candy Season with their first haul of Halloween Candy. If that’s not enough to get you through to the sales that start on the day after, check out their huge archives that go back years and years. 

Buzzle has up a list of the 10 Great Moments in the History of Chocolate. Of course any top ten list will generate comments. I’m pretty sure Hershey should be on there, mostly because it was when chocolate became accessible to the masses and large-scale production techniques were applied to what had been a rather upscale artisan product. But there are other things left out of there as well.

Tasty Show (mostly chocolate) attended the Chocolate and Beer pairing sponsored by Cote d’Or at All Candy Expo. (I would have put this in my roundup, but it was posted on the same day and I didn’t see it.)

Jessica posts on Su Good Eats about a new chocolate maker in the US called Askinosie ... definitely on my list now!

Daffin's Candy BoxI didn’t do a This Week roundup last week, I was traveling and having spent all that time and money to get across the country to see my family, I thought it best to spend time with them! I had a great trip and my mother and I went to visit Daffin’s Candy Factory in Farrell, PA and then to the Daffin’s Candy Store (the World’s Largest, they say). I’ll have a complete write up on that soon and tell you what’s in that box.

I also got to watch my niece and nephew try out a bunch of the All Candy Expo candies. The biggest hit with the two of them seemed to be the Candy Stampers that Concord makes. They’re a compressed dextrose disk that has a little shape on it and lots and lots of food coloring. You wet it on your tongue and then stamp the shape on your skin, or paper, or whatever. They seemed most interested in stamping their tongues.

Swedish Fish Aqua LifeHere’s what I know my niece doesn’t like: Razzles, Russell Stover’s Mocha Truffle (I don’t know why she wanted to open it), Trolli Gummi Bears or Concord Bananas. She seemed happiest when I opened my bag of Swedish Fish Aqua Life and she picked out all the red fish. They both got a couple of Pez as well, and seemed to like them. My nephew is more mellow about candy and seemed happy with most of the stuff I gave him. He likes sour, but not super sour. Sour Patch Kids are just about his speed.

I’m so happy to be home but haven’t even really looked at all my candy yet, I’ve just been trying to respond to your requests for the new candies revealed at the All Candy Expo.

Monday: Tootsie Rolls & Fruit Rolls (5 out of 10)

Tuesday: Chewy Lemonheads & Atomic Fireballs (7 out of 10 & 8 out of 10)

Wednesday: Skittles Chocolate Mix (5 out of 10)

Thursday: Pop Rocks Milk Chocolate Bar (7 out of 10)

Friday: Junior Mints Deluxe (7 out of 10)

Average rating: 6.27 ... 29% chocolate content.

    Candy Revival: Good ‘n Fruity Returns

    I got word during All Candy Expo that Good ‘n Fruity, the fruity version of Good & Plenty is returning next year.

    I believe the revamped product was test marketed last year in Oregon, as the photo shown here by permission from ravenzachary shows (or perhaps he got a frighteningly old box).

    The original Good ‘n Fruity was a clear sweet jelly center with a variety of fruit flavored candy shells. According to Wikipedia, back in 1988 the centers were changed to improve the flavor and were rather like pieces of fruit licorice with a candy shell.

    I have no recollection of ever eating Good ‘n Fruity, I always preferred the licorice parent. But I’ll give it a whirl! If only to find out if they’ve squandered their Dr. Frankenstien powers on this candy instead of reviving the Bar None.

    We’ll find out in late February 2008 whether Zombie candies are as good as the original ones.

    UPDATE 3/11/2008: I finally got a hold of a box via CandyWarehouse ... here’s the review.

    Candy Teases: Edition Two

    Mars has many new products in store for us in the coming months, most in the limited edition realm:

    imageName: Wildly Cherry M&Ms
    Brand: Mars
    Description: Cherry was rated the #1 fruit flavor by consumers in M&Ms brand research.
    Release Date: March 2008
    Notes: Wow, my “market research” revealed Strawberry to be the favorite red fruit flavor. (Of course I probably drive cherry fans away.)

    Name: Twizzlers Pull n Peel Cinnamon Fire Candy
    Brand: Hershey’s
    Description: You’ll be sizzling and twizzling
    Release Date: February 29, 2008
    Notes: I’m not sure they’ll get as much sizzle in there as I want (I find Twizzlers a little bland), but I’m certain to give them a whirl. (UPDATE: Here’s the review.)

    Name: Batman Reese’s Peanut Butter Bats in Dark Chocolate
    Brand: Hershey’s
    Description: Bat shaped Reese’s in dark chocolate (probably like the Reese’s Egg for Easter).
    Release Date: Summer 2008 (attached to the Batman: The Dark Knight premiere)
    Notes: People have been clamoring for the return of the dark chocolate Reese’s, so this seems like a good tie in.

    imageName: Indiana Jones Crispy Mint M&Ms
    Brand: Mars
    Description: Tie in with the new Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Crystal Skull ... they’ll have little skulls printed on them just like the Pirate Pearls
    Release Date: May 2008
    Notes: These could be interesting ... of course bringing back the original Crispy M&Ms would be more interesting. (UPDATED: Here’s the review.)

    Name: Snickers Adventure Bar
    Brand: Mars
    Description: a hint of chai and coconut in association with Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Crystal Skull
    Release Date: May 2008
    Notes: According to Brandweek the wrapper won’t say what the adventurous new flavors will be in this bar ... I think that’s too many flavors, but you know I’ll give it a whirl. (UPDATED: Here’s the review.)

    (All photos courtesy of the respective companies’ press kits.)

    Candy Blog is Munchcast!

    imageIn case you haven’t been following along at the new show launches at This Week in Tech, they’ve got a new one called Munchcast.

    The show is about, well, munchies! It’s hosted by Cammy Blackstone and Leo Laporte.

    I’m on this week’s episode, it’s only their eighth and I’m honored to be part of it. It’s all about the All Candy Expo and the new candies introduced there.

    Check it out!

    (I haven’t listened to it all yet as I’m hopping on a plane in a few minutes ... but I had a fun time recording it.)

    All Candy Expo - Wednesday Noon Update

    My hit list is history. I plowed through the show floor today with my list of missions. Sadly there are many items that are not checked off, but a good number of them I can take care of through email or perhaps at the Fancy Food Show in January.

    DSC00112Jelly Belly has a couple of new products. The fun new one that you’ll seen in stores starting in the new year is called Bean Boozled. Lots of folks have been playing a game called Jelly Bean Roulette where you mix regular Jelly Belly and Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans (you know, those Harry Potter themed beans that come in disgusting and uncommon flavors like sausage, pickle and earwax). The game is to eat a bean without looking at which one you take with the chance, eat it and not spit it out. This new twist in Bean Boozled is that the beans are in pairs that look exactly the same. You might pick a black one, it could be licorice but it could taste like skunk. Some of the pairs are less risky ... you might get berry blue but it might be toothpaste. Others are downright evil like the one that might be peach ... but it might be vomit. Fun times for car trips!

    The last day of a trade show, especially All Candy Expo is particularly difficult. Many people leave early and of course the samples are sparse and those who are at their booths are as exhausted as those who have been trudging around for three days. There’s a free-for-all atmosphere that makes it hard to have a real conversation about products, trends, packaging, ingredients and availability because there are so many attendees who are just grabbing things (literally) away from you as you talk. I feel really bad for the candy companies sometimes. It’s this issue that made it hard for me to get the essential information that I needed. But then again, I need to remind myself that it’s really not about the press, it’s about getting their products into stores.

    I tasted quite a few things today, some that I was very pleased with:

  • Aunt Sally’s Original Creamy Pralines are done in the New Orleans’ style. It’s a creamy, kind of fudgy sugar and cream base that melts in the mouth. I tried the Bananas Foster version and have some samples or their traditional.
  •  

  • Emily’s Chocolates - they have cute and spare design on their packaging, which lets me really focus on the chocolate. They make a nice line of panned nuts and dried fruits. Everyone’s doing a dried cranberry these days but I have to say that theirs may have been the best I tasted this week - juicy and bursting with flavor with a nice coating of good dark chocolate.
  •  

  • Michel Cluizel was showing some wonderful dark chocolate, as usual. They’re a bean to bar company that also makes bonbons and other confections. A rarity. I was pleased to taste their 99% cacao truffle. Seriously ... it’s all chocolate in the couveture (no soy lecithin either) and a ganache center has, of course, rich cream in it. I can’t tell you the experience. Unlike eating cacao nibs, which are, you know, 100% cacao, this was smooth, creamy without that dry, acrid feeling on the tongue. Intense! Jacques Dahan, of Cluizel also told me that Cocoa Bella is preparing their new “World’s Best Box” so maybe it will make the grade (if it doesn’t, I really want to see what surpasses that!).
  • image

  • I ate a LOT of licorice today. I’m working on pulling together a big roundup of the licorice scene. I tried Kookabura’s new chocolate dipped as well as Kopper’s ... both are great, but I really loved the darkness of the Koppers. I also stopped by one of the importers, Gerrit J. Verburg Co. Mr. Verburg was wonderfully patient with me as I tried about a dozen different kinds, a few were salmiak but most were traditional. I tried one Italian-style that has bay leaf in it that was indescribable but wholly wonderful (for licorice lovers, that is). I need to do a lot of work on my licorice tasting.
  •  

  • Albanese makes some wonderful Crunchy Bears that I reviewed before but I went for their panned sweets today. I tasted their chocolate covered pretzel poppers. They were little, smaller than a malted milk ball covered in really nice dark and milk chocolate. A winner in my book.
  • The big business news on the floor was a swirling rumor starting on Sunday night that Brachs (which is owned by Switzerland-based Barry Callebaut and has been “on the market” for a while) was purchased by Farley’s & Sathers. It’s definitely happening. Callebaut was looking to get out of the hard candy (I guess they tried to expand Brachs chocolate line, but didn’t make much of an impact on the crowded American market). I stopped by the Brachs booth, but we didn’t talk about that, I just picked up some of their new Soda Poppers, which are soda flavored hard candies that have real fruit juice in them.

    I also ran into Katie Das of Das Caramels when I went to hang out at Chuao for a while (and beg for one their pretty little purse packages for their ChocoPods which were in the press room but disappeared by lunchtime the first day). She was so sweet, as I expected after our wonderful email exchanges, and was happy to tell me that they’ve changed the wrapper on the caramels to a thicker waxed paper that no longer sticks to the caramels (which was one of my, um, sticking points).

    Other things I’ll tease you with right now that I picked up (forgive me if I don’t have the proper naming of the products as I’m going from memory):

     

  • Niederegger has a new Espresso in a long version instead of a bar. This new format is much like the loaf that they do, which promises a larger proportion of marzipan to chocolate. I’m looking forward to it. I gushed at the booth that Niederegger has changed my mind about marzipan. (I also had a great marzipan ball at Koppers ... I have no idea what I ate as a child that gave me such a bad impression!)
  •  

  • Pop Rocks has introduced a new Pop Rocks Chocolate Bar and I got my hands on one! I only got one, dangit, but I’m excited because they said that it’s premium chocolate ... something to look forward to.
  • image

  • I spent about a half an hour at the Koppers booth. Gorgeous candy, I love the inventiveness and personality of everything they make. The colors created a serious, giddy overload for me. I tried dark chocolate covered ginger, whiskey cordials, licorice pastilles, chocolate covered licorice, matcha dusted almonds, lavender savoury chocolate, rose savoury chocolate, mocha pastilles ... and probably lots of other things I can’t even remember. Leslye Alexander, who is the creator of the riot of confection, showed me some of the other colors that the Milkies come in, creating a beautiful palette with five colors ... four different greens and a brown that just make me want to get married all over again just so I can have a huge vase of those as a centerpiece at each table at the reception. (She also helped me to fill a bag of dextrose goodies at Concord Confections ... I know she thought I was nuts to want the little bones and fish shaped candies after her couture crafted confections, but I’ve been obsessed with actually grabbing a baggie of their stuff since coming to the show last year.)
  •  

  • Melville’s has been expanding their line of Honey Spoons, which I really need to write more about. They still carry the traditional clover and tupelo honey version and are branching out into pomegranate, lavender and then some other fun caramel flavors. Their traditional line of barley sugar pops remains one of my favorites, so I’ll have more on that as we get closer to the winter holidays.
  •  

  • I keep meaning to write about Gimbal’s Lava Balls, which are a hot cinnamon ball, rather like a jelly bean (after all, they make jelly beans). I got a full package of them, so look forward to that and some notes about their Licorice Scotty Dogs.
  •  

  • Bogdon’s, who make the lovely Reception Stick (a crisp peppermint stick dipped in dark chocolate) are now making Chocktail sticks, which are flavored for cocktails like Mojito and Cosmo. They were really nice, though I’m not sure I’d put them in my drink, it’s fun to have a little sassier candy center like a lime/mint or orange/cranberry like that.
  • Okay, that’s all I can write today! (Isn’t it enough?) I’m hopping on a plan shortly and I’ll have more later this week after I get some sleep and perhaps eat a decent meal. Thanks to everyone who has visited this week, I really wish I was able to write as much as I wanted, I was so torn, but I know that the priority had to be spending as much time at the All Candy Expo because I can always write later.

    All Candy Expo - Tuesday Wrappers

    DSC09980I appreciate everyone’s patience with me not being my normal organized self. It’s been tough without consistent internet access. Right now I’m typing this while sitting at the Chinatown branch of the Chicago Public Library. Thank you free wifi!

    Today I spent far more time on the floor focusing on my list of things that I wanted to see than yesterday. And of course I’m keeping an eye out for all the items you requested. But it’s tough ... I’ve started making candy friends (folks who run these companies, sell candy and of course fellow writers) and I find myself torn between visiting with them and gabbing and going out and finding new things. I know, you all feel really sorry for me!

    I had a great conversation today with a gentleman at the Tootsie booth (I went back in search of the name of the Junior Mints Deluxe product that I mentioned earlier). It was fantastic to talk about all their products, the company’s history, their positioning in the market and the new items that they’re coming out with. I’m especially interested in their new holiday offerings including a Candy Cane Tootsie Pop (they had these last year) and the Junior Mints for the holidays that include candy cane crunchies on them.

    I had a fun time looking at some of the licensed items (which I don’t ordinarily pay attention to). Folks will be happy to hear that Hershey’s will bring back the Dark Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in a tie in with the new Batman movie (of course it will be a bat-shaped Reese’s!).

    I found another line of completely branded Bratz candy cosmetics. I wasn’t much for Barbie as a girl (I was more of a Lego fan), but I can see the appeal of these products, which are basically edible lip glosses. (Hey, women basically eat their lip gloss anyway, why not have it be actually made from edible things?) I’ll have more on that when I get home and can photograph them.

    I spent a little while at the Nestle booth and was so pleased to talk to them about their product lines, especially the Wonka items and the dearly departed Tart ‘n’ Tinys. The bad news is they’re also discontinuing the bulk Banana Runts (you’ll still be able to get them in the regular Runts mix). They have a new Berry Mix Chewy Spree product as well, which I’m eager to try and picked up some samples of.

    I tried lots and lots of black licorice today and had a great time talking to Kenny’s Licorice, which does an amazing job in the standard twists (they make the Root Beer ones!), an Australian style and a new release of an Organic line that will include black and red.

    I also got to taste RJ’s New Zealand Licorice, Tubi’s Tire Tread and Lucky Country. I’ll have a licorice day (or perhaps week!) soon.

    In another version of Licorice, I tried the J. Morgan Confections Licorice Caramel. Holy moly ... it was creamy and spicy and smooth. So satisfying. They have a whole line of butter caramels (and even some fudge). They amply sampled me up, so I’ll have more to say about this Utah confectioner.

    On the fortified side of things, Hall’s cough drops came out with some fun new all natural lozenges, as well as a Ginger lozenge (in the regular square packs) and some zinc fortified lozenges (they’re going to send me samples, hopefully before cold season starts).

    In other fortification, I picked up something called Java Pops by McJak company which have 60 mg of caffeine in them and come in a variety of coffee inspired flavors. They’re the gourmet style pop, dense and heavy. It’ll take me a while to get through them (since I can’t eat them all at once!).

    Tonight I also went to a reception to honor the new Lemonade Stand mix of Mike and Ike. The limited edition (or perhaps seasonal) item has a fundraising tie-in with Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a fundraising program to benefit Pediatric Cancer Research. It’s a really sweet promotion for a tangy product. I’ll have more on that later.

    There are so many other things on my list I fear that I’m not going to get to them all tomorrow. I’ll do my best, I don’t want to let you down!

    I’m not publishing all the All Candy Expo coverage on the front page of Candy Blog, so be sure to look at the little “featured news” block on the upper right to make sure you don’t miss any of my briefer postings.
