Collecting regular snack feedback is critical to ensuring your office is awesome and your employees are engaged!

We’ve made it easy by compiling best feedback practices from some of our top members.

P.S. Some of these methods will work for any kind of feedback in case you are dying to know what the office thinks about your killer new haircut.

There are a lot of online survey platforms out there, but we tested them all and the fastest and most beautiful hands-down is Typeform. It’s free, can be setup in minutes, and provides really effective analytics. You can even get started without signing up.

Step 1: Visit the website and click “Get Started”

Step 2: Create a new typeform from scratch and name it

Step 3: Add a welcome message and the following questions:

Short Text: What was your favorite snack this month?
Short Text: If applicable, what was the one snack that just wasn’t your thing?
Rating: On a scale of 1 to 10, how important are office snacks to your happiness at work?
Rating: On a scale of 1 to 10, how happy are you at work?
Rating: On a scale of 1 to 10, how valued do you feel at work?

Step 4: Share the link with your team and wait for the feedback to roll in!

Each month, SnackNation includes a poster in most boxes of the snacks you are receiving. Hang the poster in the breakroom and ask employees to mark their feedback right on the poster.

Best practice: Provide happy/sad face stickers, colored pencils, or bingo markers to make it fun and engaging.

Slack is a messaging app for teams to make their working lives simpler, more pleasant, and more productive, but a lot of our members also use it for snack feedback!

It’s really easy! Just sign up for a free account, create a channel called #snackfeedback, and invite your team to start messaging on that topic. Who knows, they may even start using the platform to be more productive in their daily working lives too!

That’s right! People are going to throw those wrappers away anyway. Why not have two separate trash cans…one for snacks they really like and one for those they don’t? No need to pick through the trash one wrapper at a time…just empty the bins and note any major trends.

Best practice: Amazon has a lot of fun trashcan options, but we like the Umbra Skinny because of it’s slim profile, low cost, and wide range of fun colors to match every breakroom.

Entice a few people each month with coffee or lunch to do a quick focus group on snacking trends. A lively conversation should ensue on it’s own, but you can kick it off with questions like…Any favorite snacks? How important are snacks to our happiness at work? etc.

Best practice: Ask a team member that is passionate about snacking to take on this important responsibility, but remember to ensure there is good taste diversity in the group. Additionally, bring the printed poster that is provided in every box to remind your team what snacks they tried.
