If you’re anything like us, it’s been a year of heavy snacking, and we’re NOT mad about it. Snacks are one of life’s greatest joys, and despite what your health teacher may have told you, eating between meals can be a perfectly healthy habit. But as the “functional snack” industry booms, how do we know what’s deliciously healthyish and what’s B.S.? On this episode of the Healthyish podcast, Amanda Shapiro brings in Andrea Henandez, the mind behind the cult-favorite Snaxshot newsletter, and BA senior staff writer and in-house snack expert Alex Beggs to talk about how snacking is taking over our diets and what they’ve been loving and tossing from the snack aisle these days. There may even be some on-mic taste-testing.

Stuff we talk about in this episode:

Alex’s story on the science and marketing of crispiness
