Hearty Handheld

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. As a result, a need for more convenient, yet filling snack food options arise. Reformatting traditional sit-down meals -- like full dinners, or traditional breakfast staples -- into easy-to-eat, handheld alternatives satiates the conflicting consumer desires for comfort and convenience.
Workshop Question — What would a condensed version of your product or service look like? What about an expanded version?
