Since 2022 is the year everyone remembered they have a body worth nourishing, many of us have started paying more attention to what goes through our temple (or bouncy house, just as holy), making snacking much harder than it used to be. Lucky for us a number of Egyptian brands have risen to the challenge of feeding the fast-growing army of gym gals and dudes, as much protein as it takes, swiftly scaling to the top of our snacking option charts. To enable you to adequately stock up, we’ve compiled a list of the most scrumptious - albeit store bought - supermarket snacks for you to finish on your trek back home.
