Small Pears Perfect for Snacking
Stock bagged Snack-Sized pears for busy shoppers.
Busy lifestyles are here to stay, and adults are reaching for healthy snacks to fuel themselves and their families or even replace meals. Pears are a perfect compliment to on-the-go, real food snacking. Half of all eating occasions are now snack driven. According to a recent Mintel report on snacking, 94 percent of Americans snack at least once a day, compared to just 64 percent last year. Thirty-three percent say they are choosing healthier foods this year compared to last year, with an emphasis on simple ingredients. Millennials are leading the way, and are more likely than any other demographic to snack multiple times throughout the day.
