Popular Snack Food

You take a trip to the grocery store, and you’ll immediately come to the realization that supermarket shelves are saturated in an absurd number of different snacks . But what do you choose? Among such a vast amount of selections are the snacks that people continue to purchase time after time until they become go-to classics (we are creatures of habit). These are the beloved treats we decided to showcase—from Chex Mix to Teddy Grahams, I’m pretty confident that at least one snack on this list represents at least one of your favorite snack foods.

Cheez-It

SHOP NOW ON AMAZON

What lunchbox during childhood was complete without a snack baggie full of Cheez-Its? They’re cheesy, salty, bite-size, and perfectly shaped. The lovable baked cracker has been around for nearly a century, with the first 1 x 1-inch cracker hitting the market in 1921.


Cool Ranch Doritos

The original nacho cheese-flavored Doritos are delicious in their own right, but the cool ranch variety may as well fall in a league of their own.


Rice Krispies Treats

Chex Mix

Chex cereal unites with crunchy circular pretzels, mini breadsticks, and those irresistible dark brown rye chips to come together as one delicious combo. It’s the one salty snack that offers a range of different flavors and textures.

Did you know there are six different kinds of Fruit Gushers? With fun varieties such as Strawberry Splash, Sour Triple Berry Shock, and Tropical Flavors, you’re bound to find a version of the gummy treat that best pleases your palate.

Lay’s Chips

SHOP NOW ON AMAZON

Lay’s Classic Potato Chips are crispy and have enough salty goodness—but not too much—to keep you coming back for more. Perhaps you have fond memories of munching on this staple salty snack at school basketball or football games?


Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn

Orville redenbacher’s popcorn

SHOP NOW ON AMAZON

When you hear the name Orville Redenbacher, you undoubtedly think of the iconic red box with his face on it. However, do you know the story of how he became to be the popcorn king? Redenbacher began to grow his own popping corn at the age of 12 on his family’s farm in Brazil, Indiana. He soon created his first business, selling the popcorn, which gave him the funds to attend college. The rest is history.


Jell-O Pudding Snacks

Heinz pudding snacks

Remember Hunt’s Snack Pack? Jell-O is giving that renowned pudding snack some competition with its handful of flavors of packaged pudding including chocolate-vanilla swirls and strawberry cheesecake.


Tostitos Scoops

SHOP NOW ON AMAZON

Tostitos Scoops are the best for—you guessed it—scooping up a generous helping of salsa, cheese, or any dip of sorts. These chips help you savor—or should we say shovel in—some delicious dips.

We all know Jif for its creamy peanut butter, so it’s no surprise that its latest product is chock-full of the nutty stuff. The shell of the cluster is made of crunchy oats, while creamy peanut butter coats the inside.


Flamin’ Hot Cheetos

Flamin' hot cheetos

SHOP NOW ON AMAZON

Flamin’ Hot Cheetos have had fans of the cheesy sticks hooked, but once you hear how the recipe was invented, you’ll likely love the spicy snack that much more.

Richard Montañez snagged his first job at corporate giant Frito-Lay as a janitor at the age of 12 in 1976. One day, the assembly line at the plant he worked at had broken down, and some of the Cheetos didn’t get that salty cheesy coating. He took a few of these unflavored ones home and dusted them with chili powder, something he loved eating in a lot, which is grilled corn that’s dressed in butter, lime, chili powder, and cheese. He pitched his creation to the CEO of Frito-Lay, and the rest is history.


Quaker Sandwich Minis

SHOP NOW ON AMAZON

Quaker’s oatmeal is loved by many, and fans of the hearty breakfast item may also enjoy the brand’s snackable sandwich minis. The recipe is rather simple, too. Creamy peanut butter is sandwiched between a soft bite-sized, whole-grain biscuit.


Wonderful Pistachios

Wonderful pistachios

SHOP NOW ON AMAZON

Now, this is what we like to call a healthy snack. Wonderful Pistachios roasted and salted pack a lot of flavor on their own, but the little green nuts provide even more flavor once sprinkled atop a vanilla yogurt. It’s that combination of sweet and salty that makes for a dynamite midday snack.


Sabra Hummus Singles

Pringles likely prompt pleasant childhood memories, namely the one where you took one chip and inserted it on the inside of your bottom lip and another on the inside of your top one to form a duckbill. The Sour Cream & Onion flavor is the kind of flavor that keeps you licking your fingers, chip after chip.


Sargento String Cheese

Oreo Cookies

The Oreo… Creme slathered between two chocolate cookies is perhaps one of the most satisfying food items to dunk in a cold glass of milk.
