For the first time ever, I had only one day to roam several halls at a Fancy Food Show.
What to do? Where to start? Ack!
When it comes to the New York Summer Fancy Food Show, the international booths always take precedence. New York means East Coast which means proximity to many interesting countries which can’t invest in the haul to the San Francisco show.
Turkey and Italy had huge presences, and you’ll see some interesting products from smaller European countries.
Without further ado…

Crown Jewel Beverages has the slogan: Island Born, Brooklyn Raised. Their dark red Sorrel Tea reflects this slogan. Totally refreshing and delicious, it’s just one of the interesting products coming out of The Food Works in Brooklyn. For now this Sorrel Tea is more of a regional beverage.

Bear Nibble Yoyos – All Fruit Roll Ups for Kids from the UK
It’s a mouthful, but these little cute fruit rolls that are kind of like a licorice-eating experience stated that they are ready to take the U.S. by storm. Bear Nibble Yoyos are the “#1 fruit snack” in the UK. It’s all fruit which they say is sourced from sustainable growers.
The Yoyos were really fulfilling in how dense and fruity they were. Each pack has 2 rolls, and there’s a little cardboard “lunchbox” filled with a few packs for your locker. I mean a kid’s locker.
