Eating trends such as the blurring of meals and snacks and increasingly informal, spur-of-the-moment, and customized eating all favor the food bar market. http://www.bharatbook.com/market-research-reports/food-market-research-report/food-bars-in-the-us-cereal-granola-bar-and-energy-nutrition-bar-trends.html
