Strategize with confidence: snacking behavior insights through 2023

Spending more time at home over the past year, U.S. consumers have developed a new relationship with snacking. As a result, snacking motivations have changed, as have the snack foods that people are consuming. They’re embracing snack foods as a form of comfort and entertainment, shifting growth toward previously-challenged indulgence categories after a decade of wellness-focused needs. Will these changes stick, or will consumers revert to previous behaviors?
