All Candy Expo - Link Wrapping

The Show Floor at All Candy ExpoOf course I wasn’t the only writer covering the All Candy Expo and I’m glad, otherwise I wouldn’t know half this stuff. So here are some extra reads if you’re inclined:

Bloggers

  • I met up with Ginny for a little while and we walked around the floor and talked about candy (of course). Here are her thoughts from the show.
  •  

  • The AV Club (at the Onion) got all sugared up. They have a roundup of the products that stood out to them.
  •  

  • Sera, Brian & Bonnie from CandyAddict.com were on hand and have copious (and continuing) coverage of the Expo here.
  •  

  • Chicagoist returned with a great list with lots of stuff that didn’t make as much noise as the big boys.
  •  

  • Kim from ChicagoParent.com has a great write up from a mom’s point of view.

    Entry to All Candy ExpoBig Media

  • Marketwatch: Can’t Eat Candy? Think of Gum as a Sweet Treat.
  •  

  • Chicago Tribune Blog: Sweet Discoveries at All Candy Expo (they saw the tea flavored Bali’s Best candies that I completely missed)
  •  

  • Brandweek: Dateline: Chicago’s All Candy Expo (includes mention of the new limited edition movie tie-is)
  •  

  • Chicago Sun Times: A Mixed Bag of Tasty Treats
  •  

  • Here’s the official press release from the All Candy Expo where they talked about the different trends (you can see how many of the reporters parroted that in their listings).

  • Of course some of the coverage was about Mars coming out in support of higher standards for chocolate identity and pledging no matter what the FDA decides they can do, they’re going to Keep it Real
  • Other Coverage by Me

     

  • I did a little coverage on Serious Eats: Trickle Down Chocolate Trends & All Candy Expo New Products.
  •  

  • If you haven’t already, take a listen to Munchcast (and of course bookmark it for the future!). Yes, I know my voice makes me sound like I’m twelve, but I promise I’m a grown woman.
  • Finally, the National Confectioners Association site also has a nice roundup of coverage including video links!
