2014 NCA Sweets & Snacks Expo

2014 NCA Sweets & Snacks Expo

The cold weather is finally dissipating here in Chicago, which can only mean one thing:  The 2014 NCA Sweets & Snacks Expo is upon us!  Now I am sure some of you are disappointed to find out the answer was not our annual Georgia Nut Company Golf Outing, but this year’s show is suppose to be the biggest the National Confectioners Association has ever hosted.   According to the Sweets & Snacks Expo website, they are anticipating over 15,000 attendees to pile into Chicago’s McCormick Place.  Professionals from around the world will be in town to taste some of the newest innovations in the confectionery world, learn more about issues that are facing our industry, and attempt to sneak out as many samples as possible come show’s end!

As we get closer to show date, we have received several questions: “What will you be showing at the Sweets & Snacks Expo?…Can I do a tour of your facility while I am in town?”  We want to help answer your questions, so we are excited to give you a sneak preview of Booth #1221.


In addition to many of our classic confection and snack products, we will also be sampling some of the newest innovations to come out of Georgia Nut Company’s R&D Lab.  This includes, but is not limited to:

  • NAFC Semi-Sweet Gems – Semi-Sweet Gems that contain no artificial flavors and colorings
  • NPH Malt Balls – Your classic malt ball that uses no partially hydrogenated oils (PHO’s)
  • Korean BBQ Peanuts – Our roasted peanuts with a spicy & savory Korean BBQ seasoning
  • And More…!

Stop by Booth #1221 for several other sweet surprises!


With our headquarters located just outside of downtown Chicago, we are more than happy to provide you with a tour of our manufacturing facility while you are in town.  If this interests you, please send us an email to web@georgianut.com or call 847-324-3600.  We will be providing tours to existing and potential customers all week, but please hurry.  Tour slots are filling up fast.
