Calico Cottage, Inc. to Give Live Fudge-Making Demos at Sweets & Snacks Expo
Groundbreaking fudge company will also debut newest flavor innovations
Press Release (ePRNews.com) - AMITYVILLE, N.Y. - May 16, 2017 - Calico Cottage, Inc., the creator and market leader of the in-store, small-space fudge retailing program, announced it will demonstrate how to make fudge and exhibit new flavors from its collection of more than 300 fudge recipes at the Sweets & Snacks Expo. The show takes place from May 23 through May 25, 2017 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.
Calico Cottage will conduct live fudge-making demonstrations at Booth #1483 during the Sweets & Snacks Expo on Tuesday, May 23 at 11 AM and 3 PM; and Wednesday, May 24 at 11 AM and 3 PM. Retailers are encouraged to visit the booth to see how easy it is to make their own cream and butter fudge from Calico’s fudge mix ingredients, and how profitable it can be to make and sell this mouthwatering fudge, which is always sold under the retailer’s own brand name.
“Today’s shoppers want an exciting experience when they step into a store,” said Mark Wurzel, President & CEO of Calico Cottage, Inc. “Receiving a warm greeting and a free taste of freshly made fudge creates an enjoyable interaction that translates into sales.”
In addition to its best-selling and classic fudge varieties, Calico Cottage will have its newest fudge flavors available for sampling at the Sweets & Snacks Expo, including the recently unveiled Cotton Candy Fudge, a crowd pleaser for adults and children alike. Attendees of the show will also be privy to a sneak peek of Calico’s brand-new Peanuttiest Caramel Chocolate Fudge, which will be officially introduced later this summer.
“Continually introducing new fudge flavors that we’ve perfected allows our retailers to always deliver classic varieties, along with unparalleled new flavor profiles,” said Wurzel. “Consumers will come back often to see what’s new.”
