With spring around the corner, it may be difficult to think about Halloween and Christmas 2017, but it’s already time to start planning seasonal merchandise. The upcoming Candy Planning: Christmas & Halloween EPPS is just the place to find out what treats and trends will be hot this holiday season.
No Everyday & Summer Seasonal event would be complete without the Buyer’s Choice Awards, sponsored by Candy Industry Magazine and ECRM. Participating candy companies submitted new products for retail buyers to taste. The buyers also voted for their favorite in each of three categories: Chocolate, Non-Chocolate and Novelty.
