Costco has a giant bag of Chex mix and when it’s on sale I can eat that stuff everyday. 

Otherwise I don’t snack a ton.

I guess for “healthy” I’d go with string cheese or peanut butter crackers. 
 

Unhealthy? Pretty much everything else. I’m a cookie-holic, so I always have some sort of cookies around. Oreos, EL Fudge, chips-ahoy...something. And lately I’ve been demolishing the pretzel chip things.

Agree with almonds, disagree with peanuts and cranberries.  Cashews are neutral healthy/unhealthy.

I don't snack a ton, but when I do it's usually Unique Extra Salt Pretzel Splits, sharp cheddar cheese, Hillshire Farm premium carved turkey and pepperoni. A lil mini charcuterie if you will. 

I also like the occasional bag of popcorn in the evening.

It’s about 80/10/10...80% almonds in the mix. It’s a healthy snack. Cranberries aren’t unhealthy.

Healthy: nut mix, but no fruit

Unhealthy: I’ve been flipping out on regular Lay’s potato chips

I also enjoy dipping Utz pretzel sticks in cheap vanilla ice cream from the gas station. 
 

My wife makes a super good Chex mix that I enjoy shoveling handfuls in my mouth. Is Chex mix in the healthy or unhealthy category?

Everything in moderation but unhealthy for me

Wife made a white chocolate chex mix over Christmas. It was unbelievable.

Don’t really snack. I guess at parties I go for the blanched veggies, cheese or popcorn. I do like peanuts. 
 

We always have some sort of candy out, but I only take some once or twice a week.

I'm trying to cut back on snacking this year, I was getting a little out of control. We have M&Ms, Goldfish crackers, and gummy bears replenished every day at work in the break room.

I think I'm going to start bringing a string cheese and some almonds each day for my mid-afternoon snack.

I only really snack when I am drinking.  In Italy, they are known for "aperitivo," which is their version of happy hour where they bring or have a buffet of free snacks.  My favorites are parmigiano and taralli. 

Healthy snack:  Frozen grapes or wasabi seaweed.

Jerky (low sugar), macadamia nuts & hard boiled eggs (healthy)

Any kind of milk chocolate (unhealthy)
