We've been eating a lot of snacks recently. "Why?" you might wonder. Well, for science—but also for our newest tradition at Food52. Meet The Crunchies: Our search for the best new(ish) snack out there.
To put it simply, we're celebrating all kinds of tasty treats from small businesses that have us really excited right now. That means creative chips, nouveau jerky, flavorful popcorn, inventive crackers, and so much more. As you might imagine, it took a lot of team taste-testing to to get to our top 15 nominees—hard work, but someone's gotta do it!—and you can bet that these snacks are really frickin’ good.
