The 136th Philadelphia National Candy, Gift, & Gourmet Show
Posted: September 13, 2017
Can you believe the Philadelphia National Candy, Gift, & Gourmet Show has just wrapped up its 136th show? Neither can we! It's been a pleasure for us to exhibit at this awesome show for many years. We love it so much that we go to both the Atlantic City, New Jersey and Oaks, Pennsylvania shows! This past show in Atlantic City was bittersweet because it was the last time the show will be held at the Atlantic City Convention Center as next September's show will be hosted at the beautiful Hershey Lodge in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Despite it being the last show in Atlantic City, we definitely had one of our sweetest show experiences yet. At the show, we displayed hundreds of candy and chocolate products for show guests to browse and sample. Our holiday table featured sweet Halloween and Christmas treats including Jelly Belly Jelly Beans, Peeps, Vidal and Albanese gummies, brand new Elf On The Shelf chocolate Advent calendars and much more. Our main display included the highest quality chocolate and caramel brands available from Cargill, including Merckens Melting Wafers, Peter's Caramel Loaf, and Wilbur block chocolate. Last but not least, our sweetest table by far was definitely our candy buffet display! This display was over eight feet of pure sampling heaven. Show guest were invited to indulge in Sweet's Salt Water Taffy, giant Fini gummi bears and gummi frogs, Asher's caramels, Boston Fruit Slices, Old Dominion Peanut Brittle, Bergen Marzipan, Jelly Belly Jelly Beans and more!
Overall, our time at the show was pretty sweet. We were able to catch up with some of our wonderful customers and industry associates, meet tons of new customers and business owners, and most of all, bid a fond farewell to Atlantic City. If you were at the show, we hope you enjoyed your time there as much as we did and we look forward to seeing you next September in the chocolate capital of the world, Hershey, Pennsylvania!
