PICO RIVERA, CA - JULY 15: Hostess Twinkie snack cakes are on display at a store July 15, 2013, Pico Rivera, California. Twinkies returned to store shelves after Hostess filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy late last year, after years of management turmoil and a standoff with its second-biggest union. The company sold off its various brands, with Twinkies and other Hostess cakes going to private equity firms Apollo Global Management and Metropoulos & Co. (Photo by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images)

It’s no wonder we all started calling hot people “snacks” online. Snacks are serious business here in America. Real talk: There isn’t much we wouldn’t do for a Klondike Bar. A new survey found a sixth of Americans would shave their head completely for a lifetime supply of snacks.

And that’s not all. Snacks are literally eating into our budget to the tune of $30k lifetime. A survey by Moonstruck Chocolate determined Americans spend $9.22 on snacks per week, which adds up to $479.44 per year. If you multiply that by our average lifespan you’ve got enough snack money to pay for a Dodge Charger.

If you’ve got a snack addicted office or SO you’re thinking about treating tomorrow, here’s what people said they prefer when they’re grazing.

  • Sweet Snackers. Sweets were the most popular snack at 37% and milk chocolate was cited by 83% as their “go-to” snack.
  • Salty Snackers. Salt baes were a close second making up 34% of snackers. And 84% of those who preferred the savory end of the taste spectrum said potato chips were a regular staple of their snacking diet.
