So long, dry pastries and stale cookies; there's a new snack break in town. Convention centers and meetings hotels are stepping up their snacking game with a mix of delicious options—some healthy, some indulgent. A sampling of the goods:
Perfect for fighting off chilly convention hallways, the hot chocolate station at Radisson Blu Mall of America lets attendees build their own cup of comfort. Toppings include marshmallows, chocolate flakes, crushed peppermint and whipped cream. Also available is a hot apple cider bar, complete with streusel crumbles and apple chips.
Continuing the apple theme, Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine whips up delectable caramel apple cake pops. Balance the sweet with savory cups of satisfying eggplant hummus and crudites.
There’s never a wrong time for ice cream. Hyatt Regency Chicago takes snack breaks to the next level by serving ice cream with grilled fruit. There’s also rich chocolate-dipped bacon, but for the yogis in your group, you can opt for a fresh juice bar from Owen + Alchemy.
