Snacks are the unsung heroes of These Times. They make living the same day over and over sorta fun, they occupy your mouth when you get interrupted by someone's cute-but-loud dog during a Zoom happy hour, and they happily participate in your third binge-watch of Bling Empire.
To be fair, emotional support snacks have been working hard for us wayyy before March 2020, but living through this trying time together has only strengthened our bond. And thus, we decided it was time to honor these salty, sweet, BBQ-y workhorses for their contribution to our lives with Cosmo's first-ever Snack Awards.
Not gonna lie, it was an absolute pleasure to taste-test more than 100 bags, bars, and jars to bring you the 50 best snacks to munch on right now. These pages are basically the Oscars, only covered in cheese dust…which, TBH, the Oscars should consider?
Behold, our first-ever snack awards, guaranteed to make you drool (ew, sry).
Psst, before we go: The best snacks for your furbaby!
