Sweets and Snacks Social Media Gameplan

May 20th, 2013 by Emma

Emma here. A quick update on how you can keep up with us at Sweets & Snacks 2013!

  1. I will be live-tweeting all the deliciousness on Twitter @zomgcandy.
  2. We’ve created an Instagram account @zomgcandy, too.
  3. We think we can take real cameras into the exhibit hall, so hopefully we’ll be able to upload hi-res, wider-angle shots at the end of each day.
  4. Let us know if you have any requests via Twitter, Instagram, comments on this blog, or e-mail!

Sweets and Snacks is TOMORROW!

May 20th, 2013 by Rosa

Emma and I are flying to Chicago for the Sweets and Snacks Expo at the crack of dawn tomorrow! The Sweets and Snacks Expo is the big annual candy and snacks convention/trade show, where hundreds of companies show up to show off what they’re making and selling.

Last year, I got a bazillion samples that provided much candy blogging fodder in the months following. Below is a video of what we got at Day 1 of the Expo last year:

No reviews this week. Instead, Emma will be live tweeting our conference experience @zomgcandy, and I will post short updates on the site whenever I get the chance.

If you’d like to get an idea of what’s in store, here’s my coverage from last year’s Expo: Media Preview (don’t think we’re getting one this year. Or I wasn’t invited…), Day 1, Days 2 and 3, House of Blues industry social, and my tips for bloggers (which I will be following!).

Get excited! So much sugar coma in my future!
