Eight months into a global pandemic, everyone is finding themselves with new habits. A new survey from CVS Pharmacy and The Harris Poll has dug deep and found a not-so-surprising fact: Americans are snacking more at home!

The online survey conducted in July 2020 has found that 66 percent of American adults report an increase in at-home snacking, with 50 percent choosing “better-for-you snacks” more often than they did before the pandemic. So what else did the survey find?

Fifty-three percent of Americans choose pre-made meal solutions to make things easier, 56 percent of those buying healthy snacks lean towards nuts and trail mixes and almost the same percent pick up snack bars.

Other findings include an ranking affordability, variety of flavors and nutritional benefits as being of top importance.
