Seeking convenience without skimping, consumers turn to hearty handheld foods
Implications - No longer sticking to strictly healthy, lighter fare, snack foods are adopting heartier fillings and ingredients as a filling meal alternative. As today’s consumer continues to battle tight schedules, carving out time for sit-down meals becomes increasingly difficult.
