GFAF Expo Schaumburg — Ticket Giveaway!

As many of you know, I’ve attended the GFAF Expo in Schaumburg {NW of Chicago} for many years. You can see my post from last year here!

Each year, as I become a more seasoned blogger/media member, I have a more worthwhile experience at the expo–I attend and look to get a handle on some of the new products and trends in the gluten free + allergy friendly industry right here in my home state {without the expense of getting to Expo West!}.

My greatest recommendation for all those attending:

Seek out the small brands with the little booths. While the bigger, familiar names sometimes seem to have more exciting decor and more samples to offer, as an entrepreneur myself, I can speak to the great grit, passion, and courage it takes these small businesses to enter our community and put themselves out there for critique at an expo.

Last year, I met my now-friends over at SunKrunch Granola. Their granola is now part of my daily routine and I order a shipment from them monthly– all because I took the time to talk to the unassuming booth–just a couple and a sign and some little taster cups.

Interested in attending this year? I have FOUR one-day adult passes for the expo to give away! All you need to do is comment with a brand OR product type you hope to see at the GFAF Expo this year by next Friday, 3/24/17,  and you’re entered to win!

Don’t want to take a chance? You can always get an expo ticket here and major discounts are happening now!

Go ahead and follow along with the pre-expo hype on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram {GFAFExpo} and don’t forget, I’ll be covering the whole event on my Instagram and Twitter!

Take it easy, but take it.

    Oh Mi Organics, deliciously yummy candies!

    • Brianna

      I can't wait to try them, either!

  • Cassandra

    So many...Kiki's, Sacred Serve and Sweet Ali's just to name a few.

    • Brianna

      I feel like I always find top 10 favorites, never just 1!

  • Joanna

    Thanks for sharing this! Sounds amazing! I'm hoping that Wheat's End Cafe makes it there - they have some amazing gluten free/allergy friendly baked goods :)

    • Brianna

      They will be there! Looking forward to meeting you!

    I hope to see Kiki's as just discovered their deep dish pizza and love it. Also, Sonoma Flatbread would be cool as feel like I am able to find those pizzas easily at most grocery stores, and Bloomfield farms as I really want to try their egg free/gf bread that I learned about from you :-). I would be most interested in learning about more products that are celiac safe but don't contain egg or oats since I can't tolerate either and they are in SO many gf products.

    • Brianna

      You and I will be scoping out the show together with the same concerns!

  • Theresa Brown

    I want to see new dairy free and gluten free products
