All Candy Expo on FoodNetwork

I mentioned in my All Candy Expo coverage that there were a few Food Network video crews working the floor and those shows are finally hitting the air.

imageGeorge Duran included a snippet of his All Candy Expo experience in a recent episode of Ham on the Street, but he has a full special called Candy Convention that will air on October 28th. It’s 1 hour long - check your listings for an air time.

Jim O’Connor of “The Secret Life Of…” is also doing an episode from the show floor called Sweet and Sour Candy - it starts airing tonight (October 16th). Check the listings for this half hour episode in your area.

  1. I would like to know if there is any candy expo that is offered to the public. I have seen coverage of the candy expos in the past and I really wanted to go this year, but on the website it says that it’s not open to the public.

    All Candy Expo is a “to the trade” show. They allow some press in, but that’s about it for members of the public.

    There are, however, Chocolate Shows or Chocolate Salons in several major cities in the United States.

  5. Okay. So I don’t want a chocolate convention. I would like to see an actual candy convention. Are there any that could possibly be in the united states open to the public?

  6. I want to know why are the candy conventions are not open to the public. Since we are the consumers and the ones who really decide whether we like something or not. It’s a shame that the public can’t be apart of it. Candy is a part of the publics life and people love candy. If there is any candy convevntions open to the public i would like to know.

    Chopper - the convention is closed to the public because the main business of the convention is to make wholesale orders. It’s not to sell to the public.

    There were a series of candy shows in Canada called Sweets Expo (2006-07) which were directly for consumers. I don’t think they were very successful.

    Think about it this way, what’s in it for the candy company? Are they going to sell candy? Are they going to get consumer feedback? Will they have to pay to exhibit there? Honestly, I just can’t see what would be in it for them. As far as candy companies are concerned, the present system works just fine.

    There are candy factories that have tours.
