Fancy Food Show

While I was out of town last weekend, a foodie friend of mine, Athena from Finance Foodie attended the Fancy Food Show. Here’s her recap of the event.

“Spice up your life…”

This past Sunday can only be described in one word: gluttonous. Why gluttonous? Three words: Fancy Food Show. Over 2,000 exhibitors with over 250,000 gourmet food products to sample – enough to make any foodie break down into tears of joy.

Here are a few items that caught my eye.

Diamonds might be a girl’s best friend, but these tasty chocolate gemstones from Choclatique are friendlier to your wallet.


Bacon lovers unite! J&D Food’s bacon flavored mayonnaise, salt and lip balm. Because you can never have too much bacon in your life. Or in your mouth.


Tony Chachere’s Qui-duk-ken (a duck wrapped in pheasant wrapped in quail). What an incestuous but tasty bird!


Three Little Pigs sausage. Made in the House of Bricks (located in Brooklyn). I guess the big bad wolf would be the consumer then?


That’s a lot of cheese….


…And meat…


…And bread. Time for a sandwich. Or Two. Or thousand.


Sweetened wild hibiscus flowers…obviously floral and surprisingly delicious as an ice cream topper or in a cocktail


Orange clogs not included, thankfully


Beware of friends (or enemies) suddenly bearing gifts of Jelly Belly jelly beans. Because Pencil Shavings flavor looks identical to the normal Banana flavor.


Beautiful display for a beautiful drink.


One word: Awesome

Hi Grace! I found your blog after we came home from the 4th of July picnic at the park. Your brownies and cookies were awesome! I don’t suppose you’d tell us how to make them…please?

They are really cool. Over the top cool. I know what I want for my Thanksgiving dinner – Qui-duk-ken. Thanks for sharing. You are awesome!

Baconnaise and Bacon Lim Balm. They sounds slightly gastly and yet I’m intrigued.

Also I spotted “baby wipes” as a jellybean flavor. I feel compelled to trick someone into eating that.
