EXCLUSIVE On-Site Report! Best In Show and Unusual New Products From Kosherfest 2015 - Part 2


Today we're bringing you part two of our report from Kosherfest 2015.  On Monday, the first day of the show, we interviewed representatives of eight companies exhibiting a variety of products, some of which were prize winners and others that just appealed to us as being unusual or of special interest. We posted four segments yesterday and another four today.

The eight products are BBQ Pulled Beef Brisket, Chocolate Leather, Fancy Desserts, Black Bean and Chickpea Brownies, Double Ale Cheddar Cheese, Caramel Corn, EZ-Prep Gefilte Fish, and a Do-it-Yourself Vanilla Cookie Chanukah House. 

More than 400 exhibitors lined both sides of seven aisles to vie for the attention of visitors (trade only -- but some kiddush aficionados seem to have found their way into the hall) who tried to manage noshing and stuffing literature into the bags provided by some vendors (and rolling suitcases brought by attendees).  And there was plenty to nosh and to stuff.

Some of the samples were meat, some were dairy, and some were pareve.  But all three types were scattered around the show floor, so anyone trying to keep kosher had to make careful choices.

We apologize for the loud background noise from the 6,000 attendees milling about the exhibit space while we were conducting the interviews.

Enjoy!
