All Candy Expo on Today

image You can catch a segment all about new candy products from All Candy Expo on the Today show (NBC) in the 9:00 (eastern) /8:00 (central) part of the show on Tuesday, July 4th.

If you miss it live, they do a one week archive “netcast” of the show as well!

At this moment I know that they’re going to highlight Bubble Chocolate, Botticelli Choco-Omeg and Disney Light-Up Lollipops. I’ll update here when I see the segment about the other products they cover.

UPDATE: They did a segment on the floor of the show with their kid correspondent who covered all the sour stuff available.

On the live show they had a huge table full of all the new candy products. They covered the fortifiying of candy with vitamins and minerals as well as the grosser items like bugs. They didn’t really cover the all-ages items, but mentioned the Snickers Xtreme (and called Kissables a new product). On the table they had Bubble Chocolate as well and mentioned it in a list.

She highlighted the “interactive eating” products such as edible paper, Cars branded spinning lolly pops, Tung Toos, the Rolly Pops that I reviewed last week. I’m completely jealous that this kid got to go when she was so young and I think she did a great job for a young reporter.

You can watch it on the web after 11 AM, it’s at about 9:30.

  1. Could that little girl have been any more well-spoken and confident?  My god…did she go to newscasters camp or something.  I have never been jealous of an 11-year-old’s job before.  When I was 11 I had a freakin’ paper route!

    Erin - I’m afraid I can’t find it on their “netcast” that they have up. I’m guessing they don’t include all the segments up there. Sorry about that.
