Everyone knows that the Netherlands are a perfect spot for summer vacation. There are canals, boats, museums, history and stunning architecture all around.

But did you know that Europe’s first permanent space exhibition is in the Netherlands? The Space Expo, which doubles as the visitors’ center for the European Space Agency, has plenty of hands-on experiences. Visitors can see what it was like for the first men on the Moon; experience a simulated launch of a rocket; get up close and personal with test models of European space satellites and learn about how astronauts live and work in space. The complex is found in Noordwijk, a town in the west of the Netherlands. The coastal town is steeped in history as well as being the heart of the bulb-growing region. The beaches, thirteen kilometers in all, get high marks for being alongside restaurants and cafes. The town also hosts many events and festivals during the summer.

It’s always fun to see the food trends and new products that are showcased at the Specialty Food Association’s bi-annual Fancy Food Shows.  EnjoyBetterCoffee.com has attended for several years and it’s usually a great experience all around!

At each show, the Association presents its sofi awards (“specialty outstanding food innovation”) in a red-carpet ceremony.

The award categories reflect culinary creativity around the world.  Current sofi Product categories include Appetizers, Baking Ingredients, Beverages, Breads, Cheeses, Chocolates, Jams, Frozen Treats, New Products and Vinegars and more! Here are some of our favorites.

Unusual Foods Are A Hit

Let’s talk unconventional items found at the 2015 Fancy Food Show:

A traditional dairy company in upstate New York showcased its wine ice cream, which they claim has up to 5 percent alcohol.  The treats come in eight flavors, including Strawberry Sparkling and Chocolate Cabernet.

Maple water, which is produced from the boiled sap from the trees, is a clear, watery liquid.  The taste is slightly sweet, with a 355ml bottle having 30 calories and 7 grams of sugar.  And no trees were harmed in the collection process.

From the maker of kale chips comes Broccoli Bites.  Before the veggie is dehydrated, the broccoli is tossed in a herbs, seeds and spices dressing.  A 42g bag has 150 calories.

And the sofi Goes To…

So many categories, so little time.  There isn’t room to mention all the winners here but a few categories that we care about had these outstanding specialties:

Hot Beverage sofi:  Vanilla Pear Tea

Cold Beverage sofi:  White and Vine, a blend of white tea, with pomegranate, lemon peel and watermelon juice, ready to add to your favorite tequila, bourbon, gin or wheat beer.

Frozen Treat sofi:  Speculoos Cookie Butter ice cream, because we know speculoos cookies are a delicious Dutch treat (and we have the cookies available on our site here).

Confection sofi:  Goat Milk Chai Caramels made with milk from free-range goats and local ingredients from Vermont, where the company is based.

New Product sofi:  Raspberry Rhubarb Goat Milk Caramels, from the same producer as the Chai Caramels, same happy goats.  ‘Nuff said about goats.

2015_Fancy Food Show Hall

One of several floors with exhibitor booths at the Jacobs Javits Center in New York City for the Summer 2015 Fancy Food Show.

Every summer, the Specialty Food Association holds a Fancy Food Show. In late June this year, it was again held in New York City in the renovated Jacob Javits Center. This trade show is in its 61st year, with 2500 exhibitors, including – of course –EnjoyBetterCoffee.com. The Association is a trade organization that highlights its members’ products at this semi-annual show.

The specialty food arena has captured consumer interest, with its focus on the use of natural ingredients and the convenience of buying specialty foods at Target and Costco stores. At each show, the Association presents its sofi awards (“specialty outstanding food innovation”). Originally awards were presented in only 2 categories, Outstanding Domestic Product and Outstanding Imported Product, but today the categories reflect culinary creativity around the globe.

Current sofi Product categories now include Appetizers, Baking Ingredients, Breads, Cheeses, Chocolates, Jams, Frozen Treats, New Products and Vinegars and more! Trending this year:

  • Gazpacho
  • Beets
  • Floral-inspired foods
  • Cocktails (bourbon syrup, Manhattan gelato, wine ice cream)
  • Corn (“The Maize Craze”)

Other popular items were various snack chips made from healthy alternatives such as quinoa, lentils or chickpeas; maple flavors, from syrups to waters to flakes used as sweeteners; ethnic convenience foods (samosas, soups, popcorn with masala seasoning) and simple old-fashioned desserts (comfort foods like chocolate cakes and hot fudge).

EnjoyBetterCoffee.com had a booth with the 2500 other exhibitors. We showcased our Douwe Egberts coffees, 2015_Douwe Egberts 4 roasts new packssharing samples of our favorites (samples are always a Fancy Food Show hit!). The shows are also when we can network with coffee and tea distributors, where we are always looking for new European coffee brands to add to our lineup. Stay tuned – we’ll let you know when we finalize the details of our new finds.
