Maybe you are looking for the best snacks to buy because your lockdown-induced Big Homesteader Energy – you know, the way the whole Internet is baking sourdough and stuffed socks – is waning. Or maybe the novelty of staying home and eating for months was never there. As a regular food writer at Good Appetite, Domino, and other; an occasional prep cook; and a food lover in general, you might be surprised that I’m stuck in the former camp.
Part of my oh-sigh-someone’s gotta-do-it job involves trying out a lot of snacks and nibbles, which is why I have to make a “dinner board” out of a series of creative delicacies every evening in these extremely strange times: a bunch of salty nuts, a dash of sour -sweet yogurt, shabby crackers and a dash of hummus. I put something Italian on the Flix, pour a glass of wine and call it an aperitif.
And for those who get hungry all day, the best snacks are a great way to keep meals (and split times) delicious and exciting. So, from crackers and dips to cookies and jerks, here are some of my favorites that are a bit under the radar than your standard chips and dips.
