Dessert Snacking

Consumers gravitate towards salty-sweet combinations in traditional snacks

Implications - In a continuation of the flavor fusion movement, traditional snacks such as chips and popcorn are being updated with sweet, often luxurious flavors. This move not only caters to more experiential palettes, but also signals the proliferation of dessert flavors across multiple categories. Despite the focus on health and wellness, this ultimately hints at a consumer who is willing to indulge hedonistic impulses in day-to-day life.
