Here's When Snack Cravings Are Most Likely To Hit

No matter how hard we are trying to watch what we eat and stay healthy, there’s always that point in the day when your willpower seems to be down and you feel the need for some sort of snack, and now a new report reveals when exactly that urge will hit. 

A new survey by Blue Diamond Almonds finds that most Americans reach for that afternoon snack at around 2:41 pm. And while that may be the time when folks’ willpower is tested the most, it’s far from the only time they're thinking about food. In fact, the survey finds Americans spend on average four times a day thinking about food, or about 40 minutes per day, which translates into 240 hours over 10 days.

Overall, the survey finds that folks succumb to their cravings about four times a week. So, when that urge to snack comes on, what are people reaching for? Well, for most people, they’ll go right for something sweet (79%), followed by something salty (54%), spicy (45%), savory (40%) or smoky (27%).

As for what American’s crave most, it shouldn’t come as a shock to find that chocolate is the most craved flavor (62%), followed by:

  • Cheese (49%)
  • Strawberry (39%)
  • Bacon (38%)
  • BBQ (34%)
  • Honey (33%)
  • Coconut (30%)
  • Honey mustard (26%)
  • Blueberry (26%)
  • Lemon (26%)
