Top Snack Trends for 2018
Stuck in a snack rut and wondering what’s new in food for 2018? Here are the top healthy packaged snacks hungry snackers are raving about this year.
Trend 1: Healthier Snacks
If you’re aiming for better health but you’re a snacker by nature, choosing healthier versions of your favorites can keep you out of trouble. A few favorite healthier options are:
- Ginny Bake Organics
- The Daily Crave Veggie Chips
- Enlightened Good For You Crisps
Trend 2: Convenient Single-Serve Snacks
Single serve snacks are convenient – and offer built-in portion control. They’re also super portable, whether that means grabbing a snack from the office break room and heading back to your desk, sustaining yourself before a morning run, or grabbing a healthy snack to tide you over until dinner as you run errand after work. Try:
- Bare Coconut Chips
- Cranberry Cashew R Bar
- CLIF Crunch
Trend 3: What Are You, Nuts?
If you are what you eat, you should be! Nuts and seeds are full of fiber and good fats. They help you feel fuller and they are packed with nutrition. Seed-based snacks (think pumpkin and sunflower), soy, nuts and legumes are trending now, which is great for people with nut allergies or sensitivities. Next time you’re feeling nutty, reach for these delicious, nutritious snacks:
- Skinny-dipped Almonds
- Seapoint Farms Dry-roasted Edamame
- Wonderful Almonds
Pair any of these packaged snacks with an apple or other whole fruit for a well-rounded, nutritious snack. One thing to keep in mind is that food trends may come and go but eating healthier is always better. Fortunately, healthy eating is now more convenient and tasty than ever!
