A Visit to The Big Chocolate Show NYC 2017


I attended The Big Chocolate Show on Friday for the media. I have never attended this show before, and was excited to see what they had to offer. It is much smaller than the chocolate show that used to be in the city for many years. I was a bit disappointed in the amount of vendors. The cost was $45 in advance, $50 at the door, which I thought was a bit high. Travelzoo was offering discounted tickets at $29 which I felt was a more fair price. It is a fun event, I just feel the need to tell you to try to get a discounted ticket if you wish to go next year. Okay, let's see some of the vendors at the show! 

Cocoa Supply was very impressive for me who loves to bake. Quality ingredients make such a difference in baking or cooking. This site carries cocoa powders, vanilla beans and extracts plus organic products. I was given some of their baking cocoa to try and I cannot wait to do so!  
Gorgeous designs that are completely edible!  
A chocolate shoe is my kind of shoe!  
These infusion kits were very interesting 
I was sad to not find many chocolates with peanut butter but this one mixed with corn was a very interesting texture and flavor!  

Unicorn bars look too pretty to eat!  



Yes, I found a bar with my namesake herb in it! I was a bit nervous as I know the herb Rosemary can be a bit strong, but this bar was very interesting. It was a very subtle flavor, I really enjoyed it.  
A very interesting gift idea from Noteworthy Chocolates to send a chocolate message as a gift. They use Guittard chocolate which is one of the best in the land. So good and creamy! You can receive 25% off your online order by October 15, 2017 with code SWEET25. A very unique gift.  
 
1892 Chocolates are made in New Jersey and the ladies at the booth were very lovely. The chocolate was very tasty as well, and I loved the packaging.  
Two examples of gorgeous packaging found at the show.  

Fairytale Brownies was something I was familiar with but never tasted. I was happy to see them, their products are really very tasty and make great gift ideas. They are in business since 1992, and they offer FREE SHIPPING on their website for all orders. You will make someone really smile to receive these as a gift!  

William Dean Chocolates were probably the most elegant I saw at the show. How gorgeous are these chocolate paintings?  


Scharffen Berger is one of the most most famous for baking. When you use their products, your goodies will just taste 100 times better. They are carried in my local Wegmans, thank goodness, for purchase whenever I feel the baking urge.  

As you know, I am always honest with you regarding events to do in the city. This event was fun and the vendors had very unique products, I would suggest to look for discounted tickets next year. If you are a lover of chocolate, you will really enjoy the show. On a positive note, sometimes a smaller show is nice, you don't feel overwhelmed and can go through at a slower pace. 

They are holding a Melt in Miami February 16 to 18, 2018 and you can find more information on their website.
