The days of justifying grabbing a candy bar or bag of chips are over: The golden age of healthy, convenient snacking has arrived. Today, we’ll look at the innovative ways food companies offer up quick and easy protein-rich alternatives to fill the on-the-go junk-food void.

Today’s Foodie Friday takes a closer look at these pioneers of bringing a gourmet element to your next retail adventure.
