Stressful times call for comfort food and for many people that means turning to snacking.
Before the pandemic, consumers were snacking more than ever – with a focus on healthy products and ingredients. In 2020, there was a surge in packaged foods with consumers buying groceries online instead of going to the store. But snacking has gone beyond just the foods we eat – now snacking is bringing us together for comfort and connect and we’re looking for snacks that are delicious and nutritious!
But not all snacks are created equal and research has indicated that consumers want their food to work for them. One in 4 consumers are looking for health benefits from food, and heart health ranks high among what they seek. The best snacks are multi taskers: They do a ton of things at once, providing a powerful combo of: protein, healthy fats & fiber – all are important to keep you feeling satisfied longer. And almonds provide all three components along with a variety of important nutrients.
