News Brief: Sweets and Snacks Expo

May 27, 2010 at 6:41 am Leave a comment

Sweets and Snacks Expo 2010 wrapped up this Thursday (5/27) in Chicago. It’s the biggest candy trade show in the world, nay, the universe. Over 400 vendors debut more than 2,000 new products. If it’s candy, it’s at SSE.

Fearless reporters with metabolisms of steel ventured to SSE, and lived to tell about it. Here are their stories.

  • Novelist and stand-up candy reporter Katharine Weber talks with the Faith Middleton Food Schmooze (NPR) from the floor of the convention on Wednesday (about 6 minutes into the program). Listen to the sounds of a thousand jaws chewing. Rebroadcast on NPR on Saturday, May 29.
