72 Shareable Snacking Innovations

From Pizza-Topped Nachos to Boozy Cheese Dips

— May 10, 2016 — Lifestyle
These shareable snacking innovations range from pizza-topped nacho platters to boozy cheese dips that are made from a blend of both traditional and unexpected ingredients. In an attempt to appeal to calorie-conscious consumers, fast casual eateries and snack brands are introducing food fans to products that cut traditional portions in half while featuring the indulgent flavors they love.

Standouts include bite-sized breakfast waffles and grilled cheese bites that are ideal for brunch of lunch gatherings. Similarly, healthier options like to-go vegan dips are gaining attention among beach goers and those hosting weekend picnics with friends. These particular examples are made to adhere to dairy and meat-free dietary restrictions and are also conveniently packaged for on-the-go enjoyment.

Those looking to indulge without restriction can try items like pizzas that are packaged in an edible box or nacho recipes that replace corn-based tortilla chips with Italian cannoli or cookie desserts.
