Time for my annual tongue-in-cheek video tour of the NACS Show. Here’s another year’s worth of zany products from the huge exposition held by the National Association of Convenience Stores.
Once again the hall was awash in energy drinks. The latest trend is to ditch the espresso-style tiny little cans and go for the gut buster Tall Boy. Yet even more energy. Candy looks to be just as gross as always and the merchandise appears to be fully embracing the China Express, with yet more crap that makes a dollar store look upscale.
This year I enlisted the help of co-worker Tena Wooldridge, who did an excellent job. The video was shot with my JVC DV-800 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The exterior scenes were shot on the opening day and we roamed the floor on the third and final day of the trade show.
