I always look forward to Food Fête when it comes to New York City several times a year. Without fail, I always find fantastic new gluten-free or food allergy-friendly products when I am there. This past fête was definitely the largest that I have ever been to and was chock-full of fantastic new items from new companies and some old favorites. So, what were some of my favorite finds? Well, I am glad you asked.
Amy’s: Always a favorite but new thaw and eat brownies and bite-sized biscotti (coming soon) were real standouts.
Cherry Man: Farm to Market Maraschino Cherries. A fresh natural take on the classic red treat – they even have a TSA approved travel-size.
Crispy Green: Think you know freeze-dried fruit? Think again. These were amazingly fresh tasting with all the kick of their fresh counterparts. The tangerine was mind-blowing.
Dang Coconut Chips: Simple ingredients, simply delicious. Who knew?
Jama Cocoa: A small start-up that makes some of the most amazing chocolate truffles.
Jcoco from Seattle Chocolates: Really unique flavors – dark chocolate with fig was my personal favorite.
Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine: Isn’t everything better served in a Bell jar? Nothing like what I had expected. Made for a great cocktail.
Two Folds Granola: Delicious gluten-free granola – the quinoa variety was a real stand out.
Those are just a few of some of the outstanding products that were at the summer fête and in the coming weeks I will be spotlighting many of the finds more in-depth – so stay tuned.
