Wednesday All Candy Expo Link Wrappers

Dave Simmer’s excited about the new Star Trek Pez (and the chocolate candy tablets ... we’re going to have to disagree there).

imageChicago Sun Times has an excellent set of tasting notes (I have to disagree with a couple of items) including Crackheads, Crown Tequila Nuggets, the new M&Ms Premiums, Giant Chewy Wonka Nerds and more. Don’t miss the photo gallery and the separate story about customizable M&Ms that you can put your own face on! (photo by Keith Hale/Sun-Times)

Medill Reports adds a few comments on trends, and further info & a glimpse of the new M&Ms Premiums packaging.

Fellow candy writer Elizabeth LaBau who edits the candy section for has some stellar coverage so far. Here’s her rundown from the first day but don’t miss her great photos, especially of Joseph Schmidt’s chocolate creations.


A big tip of the hat to Candy Addict and their notes from the floor:

  • Candy Expo Day 1 - Brian’s Notes - I’m so happy to hear we’re finally getting Spearmint Mentos and his thoughts on the M&Ms Premium line.
  • Candy Expo Day 1 - Caitlin’s Notes - I completely understand how overwhelming it is (and it’s not a first-timers thing, I think it’s always like that).
  • And finally, just for fun, relive Cameron Gray’s Tuesday with photos as they were posted from the floor.
