"Eat This!" Event & Try New Trendy Treats

One of the great pleasures of being a pop culture journalist is the being invited to sample and taste new products — particularly a variety of foods meant to simplify life while hopefully enhancing it.

Part of the pleasure is in seeing conventional brands — ones that aren’t always thought of as either so tasty or healthy — so affected by the nutritional and organic trends that they have unveiled new products that support those trends. Or they’ve made new items that just taste better.

Of course with a site like filmfestivaltraveler.com, there’s a presences for those product perfect for the traveler — compact, easy to open and quick to prepare. Here’s a portfolio that’s a self-explanatory sampling of the some of the cool foods sampled during Eat This! expo at the New York Marriott Marquis.
