Live from the International Home + Housewares Show 2012!

Welcome to our new home at the International Home + Housewares Show 2012!

You may have seen our booth last year, which was nice, but our new glowing counter looks like we’ve landed the Starship iSi in the middle of McCormick Place in Chicago—and that’s kind of how it feels too. With demos and tastings of futuristic-sounding food and drink—like microwave chocolate sponge cake with peanut butter chips, carbonated grape, and whipped cream (below)—it might seem like we’re back from the future, but it’s just our easy take on a classic PB & J with milk, any kid’s favorite after-school snack.

For a little more grown up tastes, we also served “Virgin Mary” infused celery sticks with blue cheese wiz (below). The celery sticks show off the new Rapid Infusion Technique, which you may have seen in the New York Times as Bloody Mary celery sticks.

Our hot, new, most coveted item at the show is hands down the Flex-it Mini Measuring Cup (below).

But our personal favorite at the show is meeting friends, old and new, and showing what you can easily do at home too. We’ve been so busy that we were only able to catch most of our show team together for a quick “class photo” — and yes, that’s Rick Agresta, whom you met last year! If you’re coming to the show, please stop by our booth—we’re in our usual spot (#S1224). If you did, please let us know what you thought in the comments below—and on Facebook. Thanks!
