Data and consumer insights reveal America’s top 15 snack brands
LOS ANGELES, CA — February 25, 2020 — Today SnackNation announced the winners of the 2020 SnackNation Insights Awards, the industry’s only data-driven snack awards. SnackNation identified one emerging and one established winner within each category, with a single winner named for “Overall Best Packaging” – a total of 15 victors across eight distinct categories.
All snacks that appear in SnackNation boxes must meet industry-leading quality standards, pass the SnackNation internal tasting panel, and comply with the company’s banned ingredient list. While other industry snack awards focus exclusively on nutritional claims and content, SnackNation’s proprietary analysis is based on consumer insights fueled by the company’s national data platform SnackNation Insights and the newly launched SnackNation App. The awards factored in both overall product rating and purchase intent data to identify winners.
