Consumers are turning to indulgent foods to help get them through the upheaval caused by COVID-19. As the virus continues to spread, more and more people have been asked to remain in their homes unless absolutely necessary. In March, US consumers bought approximately 50% more salty snacks than they did during the same period of the previous year, with sales of potato chips pretzels and popcorn rising by 30%, 47% and 48% respectively.
