Snacks come in a variety of forms including packaged and processed foods and items made from fresh ingredients at home.

Often leftovers, cold cuts sandwiches, nuts, fruit, and the like were used as snacks.

The Dagwood sandwich was originally the humorous result of a cartoon character’s desire for large snacks.
