Every year, Shape magazine looks at the latest trends in snacking for their annual Snack Awards.
This year, they saw big increases in usage of ingredients like Goji berries & Omega-3 enrichment. Pomegranate is still popular.
The snack finalists are broken down into three categories: 100 calories or less, 101-150, and 151-200 calories.
There are even a few surprises like Nesquik Chocolate Milk & Frosted Mini-Wheats. The list made me hungry to try some new options. I will have to keep an eye out for them because I usually don’t shop in traditional grocery stores nor do I eat a lot of processed food.
Take a look at Shape’s 2009’s snacking list and let us know if you’ve tried any or have some special off-the-counter snacks to share.
Some of these snacks seem expensive for what you get. For me they would be a very occasional treat not a steady diet. Pass the Fuji apple please.
