The "Top Trends in Snacks, Confectionery, and Desserts; Exploring consumer and innovation trends in key categories" report says notion of consuming three main meals a day continues to erode as snacking becomes entrenched in consumers' dietary routines. For some consumers, snacks provide a necessary energy or nutritional boost as time restraints prevent them from consuming more substantial meals. For others, they offer an emotional boost during stressful times or when an indulgence or treat is needed. Other snacking scenarios are characterized not by particular functional or psychological needs but are rather dictated by occasion, such as watching a movie, attending a sporting event, or socializing with friends. Essentially, more consumers are turning to snacks to fulfill a wider range of needs and occasions, presenting opportunities for brands right across the health-indulgence and sweet-savory spectrums.
