The Sweetest Event All Year: The 2012 Sweets & Snacks Expo
So you can probably guess the annual National Confectioners Association’s Sweets & Snacks Expo is just about the most radical event that can happen to this chiclet all year long. It’s 3 days of tons of new candy and snack exhibitors and tasty new releases…not to mention lotsa candy sampling!
Here’s just a taste of what you can expect:
- The Exhibitors: Quick, name your favorite candies. You probably rattled off a list of about five, right? Wellll now image being in the midst of 550, yes five-hundred-and-fifty, candy and snack exhibitors. All wanting you to taste their wares. Oh me oh my!
- The Attendees: I’m a talker, so you can bet chatting up fellow candy-loving attendees about sweets for three days is pretty much a dream come true, except it’s totally reality!!
- The Venue: I’m a sunshine and waves girl to the max, but I’d never pass up a trip to the windy city! This year’s Sweets & Snacks Expo is based in Chicago, so I’ll be packing a scarf to protect that blonde coif of mine!
It’s going to be a gnarly three days! I’ve got my trusty gummy bear countdown going on, where I set aside one gummy bear for each day till the show. This is the one and only time where I can say I can’t wait till I have no gummies left!
