In a Perfumer & Flavorist+ article in September 2021 by ADM's John Powers, "Flavorful Snack Trends: Fuel Consumer Demands," Powers stated that, " On a weekly basis, 76% of consumers report having salty snacks and 70% are choosing sweet snacks. Familiar flavors can provide comfort and nostalgia, as they remind us of happier times. Cheddar cheese, barbecue and ranch, as well as chocolate, vanilla, caramel and cinnamon are classic snack flavors that consumers turned to for a sense of solace during a disruptive year."
Cheetos Bolitas are a bite-sized snack with notes of chili and cheese.
Black Bean SunChips are made with whole grains and real black beans and available in two flavors, Spicy Jalapeño with tangy jalapeño peppers and Southwestern Queso with chipotle peppers and creamy queso.
Cinnamon Crunch PopCorners are air-popped and never fried with a combination of cinnamon and brown sugar flavors.
