New York Chocolate Show, in it's 15th year was not as bustling as it has been in years past. Hurricanes and foul weather was not good for show attendance but allowed for some great connecting. As you can see here I am having a wonderful conversation with a chocolate sculpture of Lucille Ball.
The brand new Chicago Fine Chocolate Show was a trade/consumer show held on Navy Pier. While I was unable to make the first day, I can say the second day was busy. Many consumers were running around with large bags filled with truffles, cupcakes and candies and had chocolate drinks in hand.
At both shows I demonstrated how to make wonderful owl pops with my Land of Nod Candy Set and sold the kits and many copies of my book Chocolate: The Sweet History.
