I went for candy and ended up buying this Beef Jerky on the spot at the show (thank you amazon.com android app!). Snacks made up 40% of the show this year, so there were a lot of them to sample. I do not review snacks on this site, but I met the writer for Taquitos.net who has reviewed 4,997 snacks so far. Taquitos.net Link I did love this product and cannot wait for it to arrive. A family run company makes this product, they have many variations and they were all great. I love citrus, so this version was absolutely perfect for me and the taste was amazing. I had a great talk with the owners of the company, they are super nice people with a passion for making amazing jerky.
I'm a little melancholy over the introduction of so many snacks to the show this year. Even though I found something like the product above that I loved. I think the Candy Professor felt the same way and she expresses those thoughts in this new article out today: The End of Candy: How Health Food Threatens Our Sweets.
