New Product Contest

Convenience Store Products' Retailer Choice Best New Product Contest features retailers' votes for their favorite new food, beverage and merchandise items.

Published in CSP Magazine December 2014

The winners of CSP’s 11th annual Retailer Choice Best New Product Contest represent a remarkable array of tastes, formats and equipment.

Winners were selected by convenience-store retailers in the industry’s most significant new-product awards for 28 different categories from a pool of hundreds of products that were nominated.

The contest included products released in the convenience-retailing format between Aug. 1, 2013, and July 31, 2014. Candidates were narrowed to a list of three in each category, chosen over the course of one month of online voting. Thanks to all retailers who voted for their favorites; the contest would not have been possible without your participation. Congratulations to all the winners!
