The Philadelphia Chocolate and Candy Show is head in Atlantic City twice a year, January and July/August. Valentine's Day was the focus for much of the show, especially packaging. Lots of candy hearts! Two categories of exhibitors - companies who make things for candy makers and candy/chocolates makers themselves.
Checking out packaging suppliers was my main goal, but I wanted to taste and price other chocolate wholesalers, too. I need packaging for my chocolates when they are away from me - like in a retail store. I have resisted the boxes with plastic windows, but I finally found some that I think are very pretty. And not crazy expensive, not an easy task.
I am very pleased with the result! The ribbon is a one-off for a birthday gift, I will use my pink or brown satin. I'll keep looking for this one from the wholesale ribbon people!
Now I have to add these to the website, which is www.chouquette.us. And to etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/ChouquetteShop.
