All Candy Expo 2008 - Final Link Wrappers

Here are the last few stories that have trickled in about All Candy Expo. I expect that after everyone has gotten a little sleep over the holiday weekend there may be some more wrap ups.

  • The AV Club at The Onion shows us how it’s done with their roundup up of All Candy Expo and note a few moments of poor treatment by booth-cops. (Enter the Octopus has a post about that, too.)

  • Chicagoist has a list of Five Items from All Candy Expo That Should Not Be Allowed to Exist. I have to admit, I have never reviewed any of the items on that list.

  • The Candy Podcast kids (and parents) also went to All Candy Expo and have an incredible set of photos available on Flickr.
  • Interesting news from the trade publications, this one about convenience stores from Convenience Store Petroleum magazine. The thing that caught my eye was this little factoid about how we approach the candy aisle: Shoppers shop first by segment (gum, chocolate, etc.), then by usage, then package type and finally by brand.

    This makes perfect sense. I usually have something in mind like “I want something tangy!” and then go from there. I’m not sure what they mean by package type, I’m guessing size. (Though most convenience stores don’t have much choice in size of packages like grocery stores do.)
