Guest Post: Love & Natural Products by Krissea + Giveaway

Hi there! I'm Kristin stopping by from  I feel so honored my dear friend Chloe has invited me to guest post on &Chloe.  My passions and interests are many, but because I'm just on the heels of a trip to SoCal for a Natural Products trade show, I thought it'd be fun to share a bit of the experience with you all.  For anyone out there that has ever shopped at Whole Foods, that has ever purchased an organic food product, a "green" cleaning product, or a natural beauty product (just to name a few), there is something you would have found and loved at Expo West Natural Products show in Anaheim, CA.

This year over 60,000 retailers attended to visit over 2,000 booths covering 1 MILLION net square feet at the Anaheim Convention Center (and as a result MY FEET were a bit sore to say the least).  I was there representing Zuke's, a natural dog treat company based out of Durango, Colorado.

A lot goes into putting this show together.  Each attending company works hard the night before so the next day they are ready to meet new potential customers, reconnect with current business partners, and feed lots of hungry attending foodies (including me!) 

A few of my fav samples included:

PB Crave - This is the first I've seen this company and all I can say is I hope it's not the last. They are a peanut butter company and with flavors including COCO Bananas and Cookie Nookie I was in Peanut Butter heaven.  They donate a portion of profits to a non-profit organization focused on treating malnourished children. Check them out at  Here is a pic of their cute booth!

StonyField Farms - The Stonyfield Farms Booth is Freaking Awesome. Everyday they set up a Yogurt Bar with toppings like organic granola and Annie's Chocolate Bunnie Grahams. Check out the Yogurt Bar and their cute booth shaped like a giant yogurt.

My fav booth in the beauty aisle every year hands down is Love & Toast: check it out - so bright and pretty. Not only do I love their booth but I LOVE their products too.  Their honey coconut perfume smells like summertime.

And of course you can't go wrong with organic peanut butter cups. 'Nuff said. This year Justin's also unveiled a new product that was similar to a Twix bar...only it was organic.


The best part?!  I brought back samples and coupons from the show, and one lucky winner will get a gift package courtesy of &Chloe.  All you have to do to win is comment below on your fav natural product and one lucky winner will be chosen at random.
Thanks for stopping by &Chloe...and swing by to say hello and follow your beach bliss.
