The average American spends nearly $30K on snacks in their lifetime

What would you do for a lifetime supply of snacks? According to new research, a sixth of Americans would completely shave their head.

The survey of 2,000 Americans found snacks aren’t the only thing to drive respondents to extremes — the same number (16 percent) would also shave their head for a lifetime supply of chocolate.

Respondents are truly willing to go above and beyond for their treats — 18 percent of those surveyed would forgo all of their electronic devices for one full month to snag a lifetime supply of snacks.

Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Moonstruck Chocolate Co., the survey looked to see how much respondents would save if they took these drastic measures.

At $9.22 a week, Americans’ beloved snacks add up to $479.44 a year — meaning the average respondent will spend $28,766.40 just on snacks during their lifetime.

The survey also examined American’s snacking preferences and their favorite snack combinations.

When it comes to deciding whether to go sweet or salty, respondents were split — with 37 percent preferring something sweet and 34 percent

Salty snackers also love their milk chocolate, coming in behind potato chips at 63 percent.

Respondents also seemed to be all for combining chocolate with other goodies. Four in 10 said the top chocolate combo is alongside caramel, with chocolate and nuts closely following at 39 percent.

“Each type of chocolate offers a distinctive tasting experience, allowing for a wide variety of pairing opportunities to create unique flavor combinations,” said Megan Jeans, Research and Development Manager for Moonstruck Chocolate Co.

Results showed that Americans are willing to imbibe in some unique combinations for snacking as well.
