From popcorn to the latest engineered treat, go inside the industry that supplies a seemingly endless stream of salty treats.
- AMERICAN EATS goes from the farm to the kitchen and beyond.
- Head into the labs where the latest junk food fads are created.
- An inside look at a multi-billion dollar industry.
It's official--the American diet is a disaster. But it is also undeniably tasty, and increasingly snack-centric. We consume over 4.3 billion pounds of snack food a year which means the snack is on the verge of becoming America's favorite meal!
AMERICAN EATS goes inside the thirst-inducing, pocket draining world of chips (potato and other), pretzels, nuts and all the other crunchy favorites that are awash in salt. You know, the good stuff. For every product on the shelf, there are about 100 formulations that did not make it. But there's not likely to be a shortage anytime soon--potato chips alone account for over $6 billion in annual sales. And with creative new snack varieties on the way, the salty snack food industry shows no signs of waning.
