CRFA Show 2012 Coverage

March 9, 2012 | By More

This week we attended the 2012 CRFA Show. An annual favorite of ours, we like to scope out the latest new food ideas and products. This years show did not disappoint.

Here’s just a few of the cool new food ideas we found:

The Staybowlizer

A simple invention to keep your bowl stable while you mix and whisk in the kitchen. It’s also great for tempering as it fits perfectly into a pot, creating a steam-proof seal. For more information visit www.staybowlizer.com (the site isn’t up yet, so check back soon!).

Molten Ice Glasses

Launched at the show, Molten Ice Glasses are an ingenious brought over from Europe by GBS Food Service Equipment. These ice glasses are great for cocktails (both alcoholic and shrimp) as well as anything else you’d like to keep cold. These unique cups do not dilute your drink as they melt from the outside in. Unfortunately, you’ll need to purchase the giant Molten Ice Glass maker if you want to make these at home. Look for Molten Ice Glasses at a bar near you soon.

Flat – Table Stablizer

Another ingenious idea. The Flat table stabilizer means we can finally say goodbye to wobbly tables forever.

Some other highlights of the show include:

Kellogg’s Special K Cracker Chips

Each cracker chip is light in texture, crispy and seasoned. Now you can get the crunch that you love in the cracker aisle. Look for these soon in a grocery store near you.

Dorgel Chili Dark Chocolate Gelato

Dorgel was handing out some tasty samples. Everyone was gushing over this chili chocolate flavor. Other favorites included Cherry Coke, Red Velvet and Cotton Candy.

Kangaroo Slider

The Gordon Food Service booth was giving out this slider to adventurous foodies looking to try something new. The kangaroo itself had an interesting taste, but it was the Zucchini relish that had people coming back for more. Register for the GFS Magic of the Menu show here.

We also ran into some of our CRFA favorites at the show including McClure’s Pickles, Pingue Prosciutti and Possmei Popping Boba.

Next year the show will be held March 3-5, 2013. For more information visit www.crfa.ca. See you next year!
