The article highlights the growing popularity of meat snacks. Once strictly the province of blue-collar, rural male customers, meat snacks have taken off in the past few years among a wider consumer base. Women, Baby Boomers, younger people and Hispanic customers have all taken to snacking on meat in all its forms. Expanded retail distribution generated much of the growth, but broader consumer appeal as a result of diet trends, product innovation and meat snacks' general convenient nature has served to drive product placement while supporting further sales increases.
