Survey Sheds Light On Snack Accidents – Or “Snackccidents”

March 3, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
A survey of 2,000 Americans conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Chomps, a Naples, Fla.-based maker of beef, turkey, and venison meat sticks, has found that the average American experiences 416 “snackccidents” a year. Fifty-seven percent of respondents admitted that they'd accidentally eaten a full-sized bag of snacks in one sitting. Forty-five percent admitted eating a full meal composed entirely of snacks, when they'd only intended to eat a single snack. Thirty-seven percent said they’d purchased a snack that they later realized contained ingredients that weren't exactly healthy. But “happy 'snackccidents'” were fairly common, according to the survey: 66 percent of respondents confirmed they'd stumbled accidentally upon a new snack they enjoyed. And lastly, and happily for snack makers, fifty-six percent of respondents agreed that, when it comes to snacks, they have little to no self-control.
