It is hard to even attempt to describe what ExpoWest is really like. A three day event of pure craziness basically sums it up in the best way. ExpoWest was hosted at the Anaheim Convention Center out in California this past weekend and is a Natural Product Convention. Natural Products can include everything from food to house cleaners to vitamins & supplements. I had the great opportunity to attend ExpoWest with DRINKMaple. I helped man the booth with Co-Founders Kate and Jeff as they went in and out of meetings.  I was also fortunate to have some time to explore the four story convention center filled with all my favorite natural companies for a few hours each day. I rounded up some of my favorite new product discoveries which include some new companies I hadn’t heard of, as well as new product launches announced from some of my favorite brands at the Expo!

Here is my short roundup (I could list a million great products) so keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks for these new products to launch in your local stores:

    • Paleo Baking Mixes: Finally, an easy approach to making paleo chocolate chip cookies, banana bread, pumpkin bread, PIZZA DOUGH, as well as many other options that all taste delicious.

DRINKMaple launched their new logo and amazing new packaging options that will appear in stores this spring; including a twist top bottle as well as a liter size. The twist top is great for on the go and athletes and the liter is great for those who want to keep a bottle in their refrigerator to use in smoothies or cocktails!
