Here at Food+Tech Connect we love food data and design, which is why I was excited to learn about Snack Data, a visual database of snack foods, from an interview in Bon AppÃ©tit. Created byÂ Beau Johnson,Â each snack illustration - 176 to date - is accompanied by a description of the food and a tasting note. The wide range of snacks currently include everything from apples and okra to tamales and sliders.
Johnson’s ultimate goal is for “the database to be ever-growing, documenting all snacks and perhaps aiding in the development of new ones. It is the definitive snack resource,” he commented in his interview with Bon AppÃ©tit.
While the descriptions are more comical than factual or scientific, Snack Data is certainly a fun first step to cataloguing the world’s snacks.
