The top 13 note-worthy chocolatiers of the 59th annual Fancy Food Show have been named, and honey is featured in one of the award-winning exhibitors.

The Tea Room Chocolate Co.’s Chamomile & Honey Organic White Chocolate Bar received a silver SOFI in the chocolate category, its second Specialty Outstanding Food Innovation (SOFI) award, according to Candy Industry. The blend of honey, premium white chocolate and chamomile blossoms are hand-crafted in San Leandro, California.

Chuao Chocolatier received an honorable mention as a trendsetter at the show, becoming the first Venezuelan chocolatier based in the United States. Southern California’s premier artisan chocolatier, Chuao’s Honeycomb Bar is made with amber honey caramelized into crisp bits and enrobed in dark chocolate.

Other trends at the show included feminine packaging, beverage industry-inspired flavors, “contemporized” brand campaigns and “noncommittal” snacking options. The Fancy Food Show estimated 24,000 attendees and was hosted by the Specialty Food Association. More than 180,000 specialty food products on display broke previous exhibit space records.
