The 5 new vegan products from Fancy Food Show I’m excited for
ICYMI, the summer Fancy Food Show was held in NYC this week. If you’re unfamiliar with the Fancy Food Show, it’s a bi-annual food show that is the biggest specialty food industry event on the continent. This year, the massive show included a Plant-Based Pavilion, as well as exhibitors from around the world with vegan products recently in the market, or coming to market.
Unlike Plant Based World, this show is not specifically vegan so it was a little adventure to discover the products which were fully vegan.
In all, I visited around 50 booths serving up vegan options and these are five vegan products from Fancy Food Show I’m excited for.
Remember McDonald’s soft serve ice cream? Nutty Bunny tastes like that and it’s good! Creamy, not too sweet, and a perfect texture makes this vegan ice cream one I definitely want to try again.
Not only do they make non-dairy ice cream, they also make an iced tea sorbet line that include chai, Earl Grey and more.
Originally a Maryland girl, I’m a sucker for anything that is a vegan version of crabcakes. There are only a couple I love, and this Lion’s Mane Crabless cake from Unshellish Foods gets the flavor nearly perfect. It’s also got a similar texture to crabcakes, so I’m looking forward to digging into these when they come to a shop or restaurant near me.
These bad boys come from mushrooms farmed from Two River Organic Mushrooms in Millstone, NJ.
I’m normally not a fan of vegan deli meats, but the minute I sunk my teeth into these vegan deli meats from Prime Roots, I was a convert. Excellent flavor, excellent texture and definitely something I’d slap onto a sandwich and devour.
They’re use Koji, a fungi, to create this delish vegan meats and their product line includes deli meats, bacon and charcuterie options. Deli meats include smoked vegan ham and turkey, Black Forest turkey and cracked pepper and Sugar Shack maple ham. The charcuterie includes salami, pepperoni, pate and more.
Caviarum Plant Pearls
This caviar company is making vegan caviar. While it’s a little more mushroom than ocean, I love the concept and think this product makes a perfect addition to a boogie wine and (fill-in-your-taste) board.
Caviarum’s vegan caviar uses formulated seaweed and mushroom broth to create black pearls that provide a similar mouth feel to fish caviar.
I love passionfruit and I love a squishy mochi and Mochidoki (which won for best product) delivers this. Their vegan passionfruit mochi combines two of my loves for a sweet, refreshing treat. You can bet I’ll be buying these when they come out near me.
Their vegan collection made with coconut cream and oat milk features passionfruit, lychee, coconut, matcha, chocolate hazelnut and mango.
