Available in fun flavors like Blazing Buffalo and Grand Garlic Parm, this crunchy snack has 90% less sugar than traditional banana chips. We love ’em for their good-for-you ingredients list and indulgent taste. Or try one of our healthy snack ideas you can make at home.
Put aside your snap judgments about freeze-dried fruit. These tasty morsels capture the sweet flavor of fresh fruit, then get a satisfying dunk in dark chocolate. We’ve been snacking on the strawberry, raspberry, coconut and banana ‘frus all year long. Prefer to make your snacks at home?
Gold Emblem Stuffing-Flavored Almonds
We didn’t know it was possible, but these stuffing-flavored almonds manage to pack in all the flavor of your favorite Thanksgiving side into a single package. (Just like these fall snacks!) This snack transported us back to grandma’s holiday table with just one bite.
Sure, you could eat your banana plain. Or, you could smother it in this honey-sweetened nut butter. We love that the butters are full of fun flavors—like Coconut Cardamom with Chia Seed—and that each jar helps #spreadgood by aiding homeless women.
For a quick, on-the-go snack, try these gluten-free (and vegan!) bars. They fit into pretty much any dietary lifestyle, and we love that they’re appreciated in kid and adult lunchboxes alike.
Yes, you’ve had raisins before—but not like this. These portable morsels are dried on the vine, ensuring they reach peak flavor capacity. Find them in classic and mini sizes. (Or, our personal favorite, dipped in dark chocolate.)
Go ahead and keep a bag of Smashmallows in your snack drawer—we won’t judge. These gourmet treats come in tons of sweet flavors, but we couldn’t stop eating the Cinnamon Churro variety.
Your favorite childhood candy just got a major upgrade. These Sour Smarties are so easy to snack on, and they’re perfect for sharing.
Satisfy your 3 p.m. craving for something salty, crunchy and cheesy. These savory snacks are low in carb, rich in protein and all-around delicious.
If you’re looking for a snack that doubles as an experience, check out Nordi chocolate bars. Each flavor is more wild than the next. We’re still dreaming about that Raspberry and Tangy Licorice flavor. Here are more incredible chocolate brands you haven’t heard of.
Kettle Brand Apple Cider Vinegar Chips
Slightly more mellow than regular S&V chips, this apple cider version is our go-to fall snack. Since they’re only available for a limited time, we plan to stock up on every bag we can get our hands on! If you’re looking for more options, then we’ve found the best off-brand Doritos for you.
Available at select retailers.
Need a crunchy snack? Got it. How about something soft? Yep. Dipped in chocolate? Check! Belgian Boys’ wide variety of European wafel snacks have us wishing our coffee break could come sooner. And if you love pancakes, their mini pancake cereal might make the perfect snack, too.
These delicious dips make it easy to eat your veggies. Available in several fresh flavors—like Artichoke Jalapeno and Avocado Salsa—we plan to serve Good Foods at all of our upcoming parties.
Move over, jerky. We’re obsessing over this air-dried Biltong. It has no sugar, gluten or GMOs, and it’s free of artificial preservatives.
If you’ve ever (almost) broken a tooth on a piece of peanut brittle, you need to know about frittle. It’s the perfect mash-up between crispy brittle and soft, chewy fudge. Your tastebuds (and teeth) will thank you.
