Fancy Food Show - Wrap Up & Links

Here’s what others observed at the show:


SFGate noticed the salty side of things, and I’m not just talking about the sea salts.

C(h)ristine has a great photo array that captures things far better than words (well, not better, but it sure takes up less space) as well as her observations. Pay careful attention to those “collagen marshmallows.”

Bay Area Bites covered the keynote by Eric Schlosser of Fast Food Nation fame (I think Michael was sitting in front of me at the keynote). Take special note of the mackerel in a tube photo later in the post. See, being so focused on candy means I don’t have to give those things a second thought!

Elise has a fantastmic photo of Mashti Malone’s Lavender Ice Cream ... love their stuff! She also profiles quite a few other items I missed and links to even more coverage.

Dvorak was even there, with some video of the Whiffle machine - which makes these puffed tortilla shaped waffley things. I didn’t eat them and the machine scared me (seriously, it SHOT those things out with a bang all day every day).

If you want more video, definitely check out YumSugar (they have a lot of coverage) and their video from the floor.

Anna’s Cool Finds mentions things on the savory end but covers the Monkey Treats which were frozen fruit covered with chocolate - I had the banana and it was very tasty, something I’d buy in the summer. YummySF covered the tea scene (there was a LOT of tea) and finally, as I mentioned on Tuesday, there’s a lot of trading and giveaways at the very end of the expo, Jalepeno Girl, who worked the show as a “booth babe” has the goodies to prove it (and some fun rules for attending food shows).

I have a huge pile of chocolate and candies and I’ll have lots to write about for the next month or so. Stay tuned.

  1. thanks for the coverage!  were you able to make ie to the Fancy Food Show?  I noticed a handful of candies there (the “collagen marshmallows” notwithstanding)—the majority of which were jelly beans, hard candies, and chocolates.
