A Few of Our Favorite Things: Snack Attack Edition
Posted April 2, 2019
We’ve been thinking a lot about snacking lately at Brightly Creative, and how our clients can capitalize on the fact that more than 50% of all eating occasions are now snacks. Think about that. We’ve come a long way from three square meals a day. Consumers, including us, our noshing on mini meals throughout the day. Food manufacturers are responding to the snacking demand by ramping up innovation on everything from salty to healthy snacks. Here are a few of our favorites that we’re currently snacking on.
Rosemary Pink Salt Walnuts, Crazy Go Nuts
Who knew something as simple as seasoned walnuts could be so amazingly delicious and savory. We’ve had to buy quite a few boxes of these snacks as we talk with food manufacturers about the potential of walnuts in the marketplace. The takeaway each time we taste them is that people are floored by the combination of salty, sweet and savory these snacks deliver.
Honey Roasted Chickpea Snacks, Biena Snacks
This is another product we stumbled on based on client tastings we conduct with food and beverage manufacturers. They are equally delicious as well, offering a healthful alternative to potato chips with an interesting mix of salty and sweet.
Cheez-It Duoz Caramel Popcorn and Cheddar, Kellogg
Enough of these healthy snacks! Let’s get down and dirty with some junk food. This new Cheez-It offering is the perfect road trip snack. It’s sweet, salty and cheddar-y. It’s a Cheez-It, but oh so much more.
Honey Yoghurt, Noosa
We’re all from the Midwest at Brightly Creative, and this yogurt tastes like any one of hundreds of cream-cheese desserts we ate as kids. Once you open the container, this honey yogurt is impossible to put down. Perfect for an afternoon snack.
Premium Roasted Seaweed, Gimme Snacks
Keith and Jonathan are both on the seaweed snack train. Healthy, low-calorie, tasty and versatility. They can be eaten alone or used to enhance your lunch. We’ve had them on everything from tacos to sandwiches.
Pomegranate Flavored Pistachios, Sahale Snacks
If you haven’t tried Sahale Snacks, we have a bit of advice for you. They are extremely addictive as well as expensive. One of our favorite snacks, and you really can’t go wrong with any of their varieties. The pomegranate pistachios are our current jam.
