Snacking on processed food is one of the most satisfying pastimes. Around the late 19th century, processed foods began marketing to the bored and hungry humans of the working world. From Oreos to Campbell's Soup, the history of processed food packaging has evolved from vintage tin cans to easily transportable plastic wrapped goods. 

The best snacks keep you content between meals. Whether you prefer salty or sweet, processed foods are almost always accessible, affordable, and suitable for your cravings. Brands no longer need to work so hard to market their product since most people have caught on to how delightful it is to eat great-tasting treats without the hassle of having to cook. And if you're curious about how our new snack-reliant culture has affected the way processed food is packaged, you've come to the right place.
