… okay, there were way more than 60 new products announced at Expo West 2011, but all of these happened to be dairy-free! Many are also gluten-free, soy-free, vegan, etc., etc., etc. I didn’t get to attend this year, but I did some serious research to get the low down on what was new in my market, and holy crap, there is a ton!! Rather than overwhelm, I broke the new product intros into 5 articles last week on Go Dairy Free:
- Dozens of New Dairy-Free Products Announced at Expo West (Part 1)
- Dozens of New Dairy-Free Products Announced at Expo West (Part 2)
- Dozens of New Dairy-Free Products Announced at Expo West (Part 3)
- Dozens of New Dairy-Free Products Announced at Expo West (Part 4)
- Dozens of New Dairy-Free Products Announced at Expo West (Part 5)
Truthfully, I probably won’t try too many of these products myself, but there are definitely a few that I’ve already tried and some that I am super-excited about:
- I tried the new Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups – Oh. My. Amazing.
- I’m definitely going to have to sample the Silk PureCoconut to see how it matches up to the So Delicious Coconut Beverage, which I like.
- My interest is peaked by the Earth Balance Coconut Spread. I haven’t seen the ingredients yet, and am curious if it is more “pure” than their other margarines. Confession: I love the taste of margarine and am thankful there are more virtuous brands like this one.
- Yep, we like vegan mayo too (we’re weird), and I’m looking forward to spotting the new soy-free Vegenaise in stores to give it a whirl.
- Larabar has added Blueberry Muffin to their flavor list, and I’m sure I will buy it if I see it on sale.
- I did try the Chocolate Dipped Coconut LunaBar and wow, sweet! Much more like a candy bar than what I think of as a snack bar.
- Coconut Bliss is a bit out of my ice cream budget, but I might break down if I see some of those awesome new flavors in store.
But there are so many more new products to choose from (non-dairy Greek-style yogurt, new vegan pizzas, even dairy-free mozzarella sticks!), see those links above on Go Dairy Free and enjoy!
