Fancy Food Show Pick: Wild Ophelia
One of our favorite trade shows has come back NYCâ€™s Jacob Javits Center. The Summer Fancy Food Show is North Americaâ€™s largest specialty food and beverage event. As gift editors it gives us a chance to search for, sample and spread the word about the latest food gift trends. The event touts 180,000 products from sweets to snacks, spices to coffees, organic to ethnic and everything in between that represent 80 countries and regions worldwide.
So whatâ€™s hot in the world of gift-able gourmet treats? Weâ€™re excited to share our Fancy Food Show finds so get your taste buds ready for a culinary adventure! Hereâ€™s one that caught my eye.
THE PRODUCT: Â Wild Ophelia chocolatesÂ (available now for around $4 a bar)
There is certainly no shortage of chocolate showcased at the Fancy Food Show, so if you wanna get noticed, your chocolate has to be really fun and special if you want to stand out in the crowd.
Recently Vosges launched a â€śyounger sisterâ€ť brand called Wild Ophelia. Sourced from all natural (and often organic) American ingredients piggybacking on the American farming trend, Wild Ophelia bars are delectably unexpected treats. Curiosity has to be piqued when bars such as â€śNew Orleans Chiliâ€ť (dark chocolate) and â€śSweet Cherry Pecanâ€ť (milk chocolate) are part of the initial 8 flavors launched. See the full chocolate bar line up.
Bottom line: Chocolate is a time tested gift. If you know a chocoholic with an experimental or creative streak Wild Ophelia chocolates are certainly worth a try.
