Sweet snacks finalists for 2018 SupplySide CPG Editor’s Choice Award - image gallery

Bite-sized brownies containing 40 percent of recommended daily veggies, 1 billion probiotics and prebiotics, and crunchy gluten-free protein brownie thins containing 8 g of plant-based protein per serving are among the top five products vying for the 2018 CPG Editor’s Choice Award in Sweet Snacks.

With dynamic speakers, unique programming, expert panel discussions and workshops, and a vibrant exhibit hall, SupplySide West is the go-to event for natural products professionals. The creative collaborations and innovative ingredients that are a hallmark of the event are also the driving force behind the thriving marketplace. Now in its 7th year, the SupplySide CPG Editor's Choice Awards recognizes some of the coolest new launches of consumer packaged goods (CPG) products in nearly 30 categories.

Americans can’t get enough snacks, whether they’re choosing them as mid-afternoon treats or using them to replace meals entirely. According to Nielsen, sales of salty, dairy, fresh-cut produce, bar, cookie and other snacks reach $33 billion in the United States yearly, thanks to the fact that 98 percent of U.S. households purchase these items. New innovative products that pack unique sweet flavor profiles and contain better-for-you ingredients are causing disruption in the category.

One winner in each category will be announced on the SupplySide Central Stage at SupplySide West 2018, held at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The functional beverages winners will be revealed Friday, Nov. 9, from 1:30 to 2 p.m. Click the following link to learn more about the networking event or to register for SupplySide West.

A display case showcasing all the finalists’ products will be available in the Expo Hall. View the full list of ECA categories and finalists here.
