Indulgent Protein

Adding allure to protein sources, consumers add poultry to indulgent snack foods

Implications - While junk food often serves as a source of comfort, high-calorie, fatty foods are not recommended for casual consumption. Adapting this comfort into an everyday indulgence means smaller, snack-sized portions in recognizable snack form. The addition of poultry to accessible, bite-sized snacks speaks to a desire for more convenient, yet equally indulgent sources of nourishment.
