We often ask ourselves at SnackMagic, do snacks make the world go round?
Sure–it seems unrealistic that the act of snacking could be some kind of global superpower when you first think about it.
However, as the top snack box option around, we at SnackMagic can’t help but see the world from our own unique perspective. Also, the fact that the demand for snacks from consumers jumped 37% during the pandemic suggests that in a post-COVID world, snacking wields serious power.
Then, when you really think about it, even influential, one-of-a-kind figures have their favorite snacks. We’d even guess that some of the most important diplomatic decisions were probably only reached after legendary world leaders satisfied a craving for something savory or sweet.
This begs the question–why is snacking so prominent in modern life? How does it hold so much universal sway and appeal?
Why Do We Snack?
According to Healthline, three primary factors drive all people toward snacking:
- Food availability
- Environmental/social cues
Since hunger almost goes without saying, we’ll focus on the other two main reasons people snack.
Regarding food availability, sacks are convenient and easily accessible when you have a craving. For social cues, snacking is often–although not always–an experience to share with others, solidifying bonds over communal eating.
When Do We Snack?
As we’ve established, snacking is versatile and quick, allowing you to dig in when the hunger strikes as long as you’ve stocked up.
This versatility can apply when alone at the office or at home. It could also be when you’re out on a walk and taking in the scenery or at a social outing.
Communally, you can win the day by bringing out delicious snacks at the big game or while at a movie. Snacks can also serve as appetizers or desserts at an anniversary/birthday party or another social function, like enjoying playing golf with your pals or at a girl’s night–potentially paired with a bottle of wine. Or during a working session, where you can bring along a few specialty coffees and inspired bites.
Then, speaking to the flexibility of snacks, they can bolster a virtual dinner party in today’s socially distanced times. Yes, you’d need to take the right steps to ensure everyone was eating the same stuff to share the experience, but the power of snacking wills us to jump over such hurdles.
There is plenty of food out there that fits every situation. But thematic food can inspire our imagination and offer a more immersive experience to those eating it. We would argue that there’s definitely a specific snack box for certain situations that can enhance the mood, putting a smile on everyone’s face. And we’ll discuss some of those options below:
Cheers to You: Happy Hour Stash
