Snacking Trend Turns Healthy at Supermarkets

 In International
Supermarkets and their suppliers are making sure ‘healthy’ and ‘snack’ can co-exist in the same sentence, and it’s paying off, as the snack trend continues to grow.


Fresh fruit slices packed with yogurt dip, singly packed slider sandwiches, and even whoopie pies in mini-size are ringing up sales.
What’s more, supermarkets are putting up banners and signs that call attention to snacks, often reminding customers that snacks can be healthy.
A recent study by Mintel, a Chicago-based consumer research firm, shows 65{845d44a2f09c0018d802e19e78941a85dc2180e4ed7410cee0b34e8cb134ecea} of respondents are interested in healthy snacks, but 71{845d44a2f09c0018d802e19e78941a85dc2180e4ed7410cee0b34e8cb134ecea} believe healthy snacks are more expensive than less healthy ones.
That’s a belief that’s not always borne out. Not when a single egg-salad or turkey and lettuce slider is $1.25 at Karns Quality Foods, and combos such as pineapple, strawberries and mango in an 8-ounce cup, with a spoon, retail for $2.99 at Kowalski’s.  Supermarket News – Read more…
