  • Awesome Displays: NCA Sweets & Snacks Expo

    Posted by on May 22nd, 2014 at 9:43 pm
    Some of our favorite displays are the simplest. It's easy for big companies to show up and dazzle. But new and small companies are often challenged to create booths that beg to be entered. Here are some highlights: Stuff n Mallows (aka the Marshmallow Guys) encouraged visitors to make their own S'mores...yum! NutWhats' display included a simple and elegant "tree" filled with business cards Quinn Popcorn didn't bring their giant and clever booth to the show, but their smaller versio...

  • Best of Show: NCA Sweets & Snacks Expo 2014

    Posted by on May 22nd, 2014 at 9:17 pm
    Jerky, jerky everywhere! Perky Jerky is a company that knows what branding really means. From the giant camper they parked in the middle of the show floor to the delightful band of product-savvy "jerkettes" who were handing out samples to the jerky-covered man (below on right) who walked the show floor, practically daring people to rip the sample packs off his body, the entire show presence screamed out "This is way beyond jerky!"

But if you're reading this and you think we may be writing about you, re-consider your booth training! PLEASE do not eat your lunch in the booth.

    How sweet (and salty) it is! Jerky, pop, and gluten-free are the magic words this year! And, of course, candy never goes out of style -- especially chocolate. Did you know that 86% of all adults eat snacks? That's probably more than brush their teeth or have sex! According to industry experts, the sweets and snacks business is a $42 billion industry (and growing). The average American spends $106 a year on snacks. Crackers, nuts, seeds, and savory snacks are on the rise, as are yogur...
