Snackfluencer: These influencers are all about the sweet-tooth & junk food!

Here’s yet another twist from traditional influencing. These food influencers are not trying to tell you what to avoid. In fact, snack influencers — or snackfluencers– are unapologetically unhealthy! And they are just here to satisfy all our #junkgoals.

They are honest about what they eat — and it’s all sweet!

Just searching the hashtag #foodie on Instagram can lead you to thousands of food influencers. And usually these foodies are all about the healthy stuff — the #vegan lifestyle or #plantbased tag which has been used over 24 million times in the UK alone.

Refreshingly different, however, is this new batch of foodies that are growing in their numbers. Snackfluencers are giving us a constant supply of junk food feed!

Whether it is ice cream, canned soda, oozing chocolate, confectioneries or cream cheese bagels, these sweet-tooth accounts have got you.

Some of the popular accounts so far, according to Metro UK, are @JunkBanter, @CandyHunting, @JunkFoodGuru and @KevsSnackReviews.

Talking to Metro UK, snackfluencer @kevssnackreviews had this to say

Kev, a UK-based snackfluencer, explains how his Instagram feels like a safe space — especially because people are often pressured to look a certain way.

“I hope people don’t feel bad for eating what they love. Even though I post a lot of junk foods I see them as inspiration for something nice to treat yourself to, or as a gift idea for someone.”

“I don’t believe in diets myself, everything in moderation is my motto.”

“I think people have always loved new snacks and sweets but now they’re discovering you can find out about them very quickly thanks to Instagram,” he added.

Plus, they make a ton of cash for it

For instance, New York-based snackfluencer duo, Dario Torres and Taylor Trachtenberg, use this as another source of income. Their account @thesupersnackstore rapidly grew to 21,000 followers in barely five months! All they have to do is look out for ‘rare junk food from all over the world.’

“Each week, they make nearly £790, finding their customers from an eclectic mix of pop-up stores, online orders, and home deliveries. Some of their followers make regular purchases – usually weekly – and spend between £59 to 79 on snacks alone,” Metro UK reports.

“We don’t just sell snacks, it’s an experience for the consumer”

“On a weekly basis, our sales grow exponentially. A majority of our customers are looking to spend hundreds at a time…These are only snacks you can get if you take a trip across the world,”  they explained.

Gluttony without shame is the new trend 😍
