My home town of Asheville is a veggie mecca. And just this week a great local firm helped make that point: Asheville's own Tree Huggin' Treats won "Best of Show" in the vegetarian products category at Expo West in Anaheim, Calif. Their organic, vegan Crispy Cat candy bar won the hearts of the 45,000 attendees and 2,500 exhibitors.
The award was presented by San Francisco-based VegNews magazine, which will feature the company and its dark chocolate over crispy rice confection in its next issue. Crispy Cat comes in mint coconut, roasted peanut and toasted almond flavors.
Mad props to Joel Scahnt, Tree Huggin' Treats founder, and the rest of his crew!
