Getting Attention at the International Housewares Show in Chicago

For the past 4 days we have been at the International Housewares Show in Chicago. We introduced Bonne O, made hundreds of drinks and got some worldwide buzz! Click here to see the local CBS affiliate feature Bonne O after the first day.

We arrived in the windy city and it was cold, windy and complete chaos. Boxes, ladders and even a garbage truck inside the convention center. By the end we had crowds of people surrounding a professional looking Bonne O booth and asking for more. Here's how it happened.

Every morning was started with Coffee Sodas, Sparkling Lemon Black Teas and Sparkling Strawberry Green Teas. Delicious & everyone enjoys a free one to start their day.

Closer to lunch we offered refreshing Cucumber Mint Sparkling Water, Lightly Sweetened Grapefruit Soda and Orange Rosemary Sparkling Water. The look of the fresh real ingredients turned heads and stopped people in their tracks for a taste and demonstration. They were surprised how quickly and strongly the natural flavors infused into the beverages. Delicious and healthy. Exactly what people are looking for.

Finally, nothing draws a crowd like cocktail ideas. We made a series of Orange Basil Gin Fizz, Wine Spritzers and No Muddle Mojitos. When we were closing up to rest our tired legs there was still a crowd. We told them to come back tomorrow to start the day with an infused coffee or tea.

It was a great show and spring arrived while we were there! Thanks Chicago, we'll be back!
