Evening snacking is a massive market, worth £6.5bn to retailers and growing, according to Kantar data. Included in this is, of course, the 'big night in', and when you look at other stats available, you can see why it's such a big deal. According to Mintel, 78% of consumers spend most of their leisure time at home and 64% of cinema-goers watch more films at home than they used to two years ago. What these people choose to eat while watching these films is no great surprise according to Kantar, it's chocolate, then sugar confectionery, and then crisps.
