CHICAGO – Quinoa, cotton candy and everything in between popped up in new products showcased at the Sweets & Snacks Expo held May 20-22 in Chicago.

Product developers are indulging demand for better-for-you, convenient options by formulating products with chia seeds, kale, pomegranate and sea salt. But decadence and whimsy also are feeding innovation, lending to trends of dessert-inspired candy, with such flavors as red velvet and birthday cake, and unexpected combinations, including hot sauce chocolate bars and beer-flavored jelly beans.
