Perusing grocery store shelves for cool new products is one of my favourite jams when I'm travelling or exploring a neighbourhood. It's a fascinating game looking for game changing products. For those who keep up with the grocery game, last year's Grocery & Specialty Food West Show in Vancouver produced the first glimpse of McDonald Sauces hitting retail shelves. Here's a quick look at what you can expect for GSFW 2018 (April 23rd to April 24th) at the Vancouver Conventions Centre.
