Top Product: Lekko Dark Chocolate Spread | $5 | Amazon

I’m not a huge snacker really and when I do snack, I’m picky. The snack has to have the right taste and texture, smell, and have a fabulous presentation. So, for this roundup, I teamed up with my wife to sample a variety of snacks fit for even the most discerning palates. While there are some “healthy” options in the mix, our goal was to find the most delicious snacks: sugar and carbs limitations be damned.

If you’re looking to upgrade your snacking experience, support some small businesses, and get the best of the best delivered to your door, read on for my account of the two weeks we spent wrangling packages, testing, and snacking to bring you the very best.

Do you love chocolatey, sugary goodness? Then look no further than Lekkco Belgian dark chocolate spread. Rich and decadent, this delicious concoction is perfect for smearing on toast or dousing strawberries with, but who are we kidding—you’ll eat it by the spoon, won’t you?

Tortilla Chips Made From Plantains Are Anything but Plain

If you prefer savory snacks, these Barnana plantain chips should do the trick. Slightly sweet, we tried the spicy version, they are made with avocado oil and have the satisfying crunch of great chips. Try these with a smashed avocado and some lime, or a container of hummus if that suits your fancy.

Your New Midday Pick-Me-Up

While I’m not a fan of mints myself, my wife loves them and needs to be caffeinated daily. She tells me that these Viter caffeinated mints taste just like regular mints without the strange aftertaste some products like this have. Two mints did the job of a cup of coffee, and she stayed happy and caffeinated throughout the day.

Just the Right Amount of Chocolate

I’ve been a huge fan of chocolate dipped nuts for a while now, but SkinnyDipped takes the fun to a whole new level. I wasn’t expecting to like them, because I’m a huge chocolate fan and these have less of it than the ones I’m used to. Turns out, SkinnyDipped has figured out the PERFECT ratio. We’ve snacked on these and even added them as a topping to ice cream.

Snacking ... for Adults!

The world’s first peanut butter whiskey is the perfect adult snack all on its own. My wife drank it straight up and says it tastes like ice cream. I, however, prefer it on a few scoops of vanilla ice cream. Whichever way you indulge, this is a treat you need in your life if you are a drinker.

That’s It! Fruit for Energy

When I asked my wife what she thought about That’s It fruit bars, she told me that the texture was just right. I agree. Lots of fruit bars stick to your teeth and feel plain weird in the mouth; these, on the other hand, are pleasantly tasty. Sold in packs of 122, our consensus is strawberry tastes best.

Cheese Please

Now these I couldn’t wait to pop them in the oven. First, let’s talk about shipping. These are shipped with dry ice and come frozen. 20 minutes later, you pop ‘em in your mouth and are simply in heaven. Naturally gluten-free, Brazi Bites are crunchy on the outside and gooey cheesy delight on the inside.

Salty Italian Delicacies

Have a craving for a salty, briny flavor? Giusto Sapore Italian olives hit the spot in the savory snack department. Imported by a small family business in Italy, you can try them on their own, add them to a cheese board, or enjoy them in pasta. This mixed assortment gives you the best of all worlds, letting you taste your way around the Mediterranean.

Organic Grass-Fed Creamy Yogurt

My secret to making the best shish kabob is tenderloin and really good yogurt. Maple Hills Yogurt delivers on flavor, texture, and quality, making it the perfect choice for snacktime or kababs. Find 16-ounce containers if you often indulge, or the standard size for an occasional snack. And, all the while, know you’re supporting 150 small family farms in upstate New York as a bonus.

Jerky Made of Mushrooms

Whether you’re a vegetarian or just appreciate a good mushroom, this mushroom jerky is a must-try. I mentioned before that texture is a big thing for me, but these really feel like jerky. The taste is ...interesting. It took a few bites to get used to it, but once I did, I was an instant convert.

For When Sweet Isn’t All You Need

Sometimes, sour is needed to hit the spot. Sour Punch Straws was a childhood favorite snack sold in the snack cart at the pool, one I’d count my pennies to sneak a pack of on occasion. Unlike most of my childhood favorites that were later replaced with a bougie “re-imagining” of the same product, Sour Punch Straws still get the job done on their own. Chow down until your face goes numb.

All Cheese All The Time

Well, hello! As a total cheesehead, born and raised in Wisconsin, how could I not love Parm Crisps? If you love dips, add these to your cart and dip away. If not, these are perfect right out of the bag. They are oven-baked and basically just cheese and seasoning. Hard to go wrong with that combination.
