In 2015, we launched the “Best New Snack & Bakery Products” contest to honor outstanding products recently launched in the U.S. snack and bakery market—snack products and baked goods that are causing the general public and the industry to sit up and take notice. These are some of the most-popular new snack and bakery products on, and in homes across the U.S.

The products selected, presented alphabetically, comprise the ballots for the Best New Snack & Bakery Products of 2017: one category for snack products released within the past year, and another category for bakery products, with one vote permitted in each category. Each product includes a link leading to complete details on the product or line. They represent major trends across snack and bakery today, including plant protein, clean label, small indulgences, flavor innovation, better-for-you snacking and more (to review last year’s winners, see “Announcing the Best New Snack & Bakery Products of 2016”).

The two products that take top honors this year will be revealed after voting concludes in December, with the two winners announced in the January issue of Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery and on Vote for your favorites, and may the best products win!
