What are some popular healthy snacks you can have with your morning or afternoon coffee?
Recently, our in-house retail analyst looked at 900 of our vending machines to find the highest selling and most popular snacks across the UK.
The findings were published in our report, the evolution of snacking. We found that low-calorie healthy snacks were the most popular. Transition snacks saw the highest year on year increase in sales.
In this article we will highlight some of the popular healthy snacks that go very well with coffee and some might come as a surprise to you.
Eating Healthy Snacks with Coffee
Our report echoes the research by various outlets which suggest there is an increase in the number of people looking to eat healthier.
Are you looking for more ways to eat healthier? Changing your snacking habits is usually a good place to start.
In September 2019 the Grocer called us ‘a nation of snackers’. With 66% of adults snacking at least once a day (Mintel Consumer Snacking UK: March 2019), it is not hard to see why.
Most of this snacking is likely to take place while at work. One way to change your snacking habits is to place a box of healthy snacks next to your office coffee machine.
Here is the list of healthy snacks you can enjoy with a nice cup of coffee.
1. Eat Natural Cashew & Blueberry Bar
This great-tasting natural bar is a better alternative to eating full fat blueberry muffins, and it tastes delicious. Blueberries contain antioxidants and the taste of the cashew nicely compliments a dark roast coffee.
2. Eat Natural Dark Chocolate & Cranberry
The dark chocolate and cranberry natural bar could become your your go-to coffee snack everyday.
Dark chocolate and cranberries have immense health benefits, including improving heart health, and preventing infections. Dark chocolate also contains a healthy amount of antioxidants. These help to reduce the damage of cells.
3. Metcalfe’s Rice Cakes
What’s better than a milk-chocolate coated rice cake that’s only 81 calories?
Metcalfe’s® Ricecakes use the perfect, balanced mix of wholegrain and white rice for a crisp crunch.
These ricecakes go extremely well with the fruity taste of an Ethiopia coffee from a Flavia coffee machine.
4. Popchips Sour Cream & Onion
Some things just go well together: slip and slide, cut and paste, selfies and sticks, and sour cream and onion.
We think these chips go really well with coffee too! The tangy taste of sour cream and the savoury taste of onion make a really delicious snack to have alongside your afternoon cup of coffee.
5. KIND Maple Glazed Pecan and Sea Salt
This kind bar proves that maple syrup is not just for pancakes. It is a gluten-free, high fibre bar that tastes great too!
