Hunt's Snack Pack is a pudding snack product manufactured by ConAgra Foods.[1]

About[edit]

Snack Packs were introduced in 1968 in single-serve aluminum/metal cans, before switching to plastic cups in 1984 and clear plastic cups in 1990.[2] They are marketed as healthy treats for children. In the 1970s Snack Pack was sold in Australia via the Foster Clark company with the television slogan "if it wasn't for a Snack Pack, a kid'd starve".

In popular culture[edit]

Snack Pack appears in the movie Billy Madison where the title character is disappointed that Juanita didn't include one in his lunch. He attempts to grab one from a schoolboy during lunch time but fails. He eventually gets a whole pack of it as a present from Miss Vaughn when celebrating passing Third Grade.

In episode 16 of season 3 That '70s Show, Kitty Forman gives Fez and Hyde a pair of Snack Packs but a goof in production occurred because they were not the correct product for the period. Instead of being the aluminum containers of the 1970s they were the clear plastic current containers. [2]

Flavors[edit]

Many of the above flavors are available in *no sugar added* and *fat free* varieties. Also, Lemon and Lemon Meringue Pie contain no milk products.
