Entrepreneurs look for investors in businesses that include a soup delivery service, a waist-trimming margarita mix, a unique line of Indian sauces, a miniature version of a classic ethnic dish, and cookies made to look like people.
Mints that double as vitamins are pitched to the panel, along with a grill that kicks tailgating up a notch. Also: a pediatric prescription in drink form; a microwavable "burger blaster"; and a robot that can cook.
Pitches are made for a grown-up gelatin shot; an updated health bar; a check holder that will illuminate the dining experience; and an at-home storage system that has the ability to measure ingredients.
Food visionaries pitch their ideas to a room full of consumers as a panel of investors consider whether to financially back their products. First up: an all-natural toffee; a device to help people carry grocery bags; a grab-and-go breakfast line that's healthy; a gelato shop where ice cream gets turned into spaghetti; and a type of spring water that's actually black.
