Even though traditional potato chip-based snacks aren’t going away any time soon, salty snack foods are taking a turn toward a more nutritious approach.

Packaged Facts reports that 90% of households consume salty snacks in a given month, with two out of three households having at least three kinds of salty snacks in their kitchen cupboards. However, out of the 50 million snackers who love salt in their between-meal options, 14.2 million people seek out the best of both worlds—salt and more nutritious options.

Words like all-natural, no preservatives, no trans fats and gluten-free are at the forefront of consumers’ minds, and manufacturers are working hard to answer the call. Since sweet and salty is also a recent trendy flavor combination, honey is the go-to sweetener for many new snack food launches.

Boulder Canyon’s Cut Kettle Cooked Chips have a tasty honey barbecue variety that is made with all-natural ingredients, including honey and salt. The chips are gluten-free and contain no cholesterol or trans fat.

Kettle Brand Bakes Chips Hickory Honey Barbecue contains two grams of dietary fiber and two grams of protein. The honey sweetened and salt added snack has no trans fat or cholesterol.

For snack lovers who like a thick cut chip, try Dutch Gourmet’s Honey Dijon Vinaigrette chips. They are gluten-free and have no trans fats or preservatives. They are the ultimate in the salty-sweet category, with honey being a top ingredient along with sea salt.
