Four things from the All Things Organic trade show and conference, which wrapped up today at McCormick Place:
* You won't find Cloud Top frozen yogurt in stores, nor will you find a Cloud Top store anywhere yet. And that's a bummer.
* Toats Organic Snacks. Is it a cookie? Is it a cracker? Is it a horse biscuit? The answer: all of the above.
* B.R.A.T. Ricemilk. Parents (those whose kids have ever had stomach flu), this is for you.
* And a tea tip from Shashank Goel, owner of Ineeka, a tea company based in Chicago (which just came out with a green tea beer): Most teas contain so-called natural flavors. Beware. "People say, 'Smell this, what a great tea.' That's basically the worst tea you're getting," Goel says. "When you pour the hot water, that's when the aroma should come out."
More on Cloud Top, Toats and B.R.A.T. after the jump.
