45 Examples of Miniature Meals

From Tapas-Inspired Snack Packs to Bite-Sized Gourmet Subs

— October 27, 2016 — Lifestyle
With the growing demand for shareable meals and snack-sized dishes, many brands are starting to offer miniature meals as as alternative to traditional entrees.

In terms of prepared dishes, many supermarkets now sell hearty snack foods that are more filling than products such as crackers, chips and granola bars. For instance, DiGiorno's new Artisan Style Melts offer the same taste and convenience of frozen pizza, but in a lighter, appetizer-size format. Similarly, the Rustic Harvest Small Plates snack from Hillshire Snacking features a mixture of different snack foods for a tapas-style mini meal that can be enjoyed on the go.

Restaurants are also responding to changing consumers preferences with lighter options and even entire snack-sized menus. Indeed, chains such as KFC, Arby's and Taco Bell have all introduced miniature meals that are as flavorful as their regular menu items, but less filling than full-sized entrees.
