Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/12/2014 -- Market Survey On The Snacking Occasion Market In US - February 2014: Industry Research Report

As consumers continue to adopt a snacking culture, choosing to snack anywhere, anytime, and on practically anything, the format and function of snacks will need to evolve to meet their needs. Snacks with healthy claims and natural ingredients are still important; however, snackers still want to indulge responsibly from time to time. Resealable and single-serving packaging can help promote consumption of snacks during nontraditional occasions, as well as encourage the use of snacks as meal replacements, rather than just tummy fillers.
