Amidst the glitz and glamour of New York City, thousands of retailers made their way to the Summer International Fancy Food & Confection Show at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center this past June. There they sampled a vast array of specialty foods from assorted teas and coffees, meats and cheeses, to exotic pastries, pates, truffles, and even chocolate popcorn.

In an effort to provide you with a firsthand report on the myriad of foods displayed, we assembled a panel of qualified specialty retailers to appraise and rate the products in their assigned aisles. Winners were chosen for superior taste, visual appeal, and merchandising potential. For our readers who were unable to attend the show and for those who attended but did not have a chance to experience it all, the following results should prove informative and interesting.
