WOW! What a trade show. Amazing products, great energy (drinks) and too much health all in one place. It was a marathon 3-day-fest, but if you wilted, you got an instant pick-me-up.
The Natural Products ExpoWest in Anaheim was a smashing success with over 70,000 attendees and several thousand exhibitors on three floors with products ranging from power bars, health drinks, green cleaning products, beauty aids and food – chopped, fried, baked, juiced – vegan, vegetarian and carnivore. Household brands to new launches were represented from the four corners of the globe (are there corners on globes?). Here are a few brands that you may want to watch and try… Grab Green (cleaning products), Magnum Coffee, Crunchies (dried snack fruit), Superior Source Vitamins, Naked Juice, Gaia (supplements), Lily’s Chocolates, Chobani (yogurt), Bonne Maman (jams), and Daisy (cottage cheese), Tofurky, Clif (energy bars) and Diestel (cold cuts). And as a final bonus, people were collecting free samples, filling up their swag bags. It was, in a sense, Halloween for grown-ups.
