    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.

    True that I am pretentious, untrue that I "diet"

    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)
