The Fancy Food Show really was awesome. The best part was getting to meet people who are really passionate about food and chocolate in particular. One of them was Charlie Frank with Zingerman's Candy Manufactory (http://www.zingermanscandy.com).
Zingerman's (http://www.zingermans.com/) makes all kinds of amazing things. But these candy bars are over the top. Charlie and his team make them almost entirely BY HAND. It's always so cool when you get to meet the chocolatier!! And Charlie is so excited about these bars! They actually have ingredient lists you can read - not a bunch of added weirdness.
The boxes are very cool - that's a collectible Christmas card in the purple box (love the peanut in a Santa hat!).
OMG - this is amazing! Fantastic texture and if you like cashews - you'll be in heaven! Not too many bars have cashews so this is a real treat. Also some puffed rice, so it has a really light feel to it. Wow!!!
