Product Roundup: Single-Serve Snacks and Treats
For many, the word ‘single-serve’ is subjective; a bag of chips or a sleeve of cookies seems like it’s only enough for one serving, but in fact there are many servings in there, making the possibility of binge eating almost unavoidable.
However, single-serve snacks and treats that are truly meant for one person to enjoy in one serving, are ensuring that people can indulge without going overboard. Almond butter in a single-serve squeeze pack is ideal for a few crackers or some sliced fruit; edible cookie dough served in a single cup makes sure that even the sweetest of teeth won’t end up eating a whole tub of the stuff. Here are some single-serve snacks and treats on store shelves today.
