From Fitness-Focused Snack Balls to Frozen Superfood Cubes

As consumers become increasingly health-conscious, these bite-sized snack foods demonstrate a growing demand for food products that allow for nutritious snacking on the go. Indeed, the rise in miniature snacks indicates that consumers not only want a easy way to indulge, but they also want a way to share the experience with others.

One of the benefits of bite-sized snack foods is that unhealthy foods can be shrunk down to a more manageable size. This allows consumers to indulge in foods such as chocolate without worrying that they might compromise their diet. Some examples of these indulgent snack foods include miniature canned cakes, tiny bean brownies and bite-sized cake rolls.

Another advantage of small snack foods is that they are easier to share. Many brands have capitalized on this demand for shareable snacks by changing the size of their products and the way they are packaged. For example, Cadbury 'Amaze Bites' snacks comes in a wide-mouth container for easy access. Another example is Robbie's Tear N' Serve pouch packaging system, which fits perfectly in car cup holders for backseat snacking.
