The Winter Fancy Food Show was held recently in San Francisco. Here & Now resident chef Kathy Gunst checked it out and tells host Jeremy Hobson that healthy snacks seem to be all the rage.

“Everybody tries to say ‘less fat, no gluten, no GMO, no junk’ – I mean these buzz words are all over these packaged foods,” she said.

Gunst sent Hobson a sampling of baked popcorn, lentil and cassava chips and even bugs flavored with chili and lime, and chocolate.

Monica Martinez, founder of Don Bugito Prehispanic Snackeria, joins them to talk about her company’s products.
