Every time we log into Amazon, it feels like everything -- movies, tech gadgets, and random articles of clothing -- is competing for our attention. But, before you order your next book or a new yoga mat, take a look at the food.

We sussed out the best deals on some cult-favorite snacks. Not only is it often cheaper to order them through Amazon, it's also more convenient if you're looking to save a few trips to your local supermarket.

The prices quoted here reflect the one-time purchase option, but if you find a product you absolutely need in your life, you can select the "subscribe and save" option for even steeper discounts. Most are free to ship to Prime members or are available as add-on items, so if you aren't a Prime member, your price quote might differ.

Enough talking. Let's get to snacking!


Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt Kind Bars

There's a reason these granola bars are a bestseller in Amazon's grocery store. At $14.29 for a 12-pack, they come to only $1.19 a bar, which is way below what you'd pay at a brick-and-mortar store. And, if you subscribe, the price drops to $13.58 a box.


Pepperidge Farm Milano Cookie Tub

This tub sells for close to $20 at Target, but you can snap it up on Amazon for only $9.39 as an add-on item. That's only 47 cents for each two-cookie pack. Plus, did we mention it's in a tub? Because everything's more fun in a tub.


Rip Van Wafels
Instead of dropping $1.95 on a stroopwafel at your next mocha latte run at Starbucks, order a box of these classic cookies on Amazon. They go for $24.99 for 16, which brings the price down to the more wallet-friendly $1.56 each.

Whether you drink coconut water for its hydration properties or just like to add a splash to your smoothies, $13.98 for a 12-pack is a bargain. That comes to only $1.17 per container, which is way below what your local supermarket charges.


Food Should Taste Good Chip Sampler

For anyone who gets sick of eating a bag of chips halfway through, this sampler should be right up your alley. With flavors like blue corn, jalapeño, and sweet potato, it's like a salad made of chips. A 24-count pack goes for $25.74.

Sahale Snacks Nut Blends
We're always on the hunt for new, exciting flavors. Maybe that's why Sahale's nut blends are such a favorite. For $23.90 you get 12 bags of nut mixes, in flavors like pomegranate vanilla cashews; berry macaroon almond; raspberry crumble cashew; and mango tango almond. Yes, please!


Nonni's Almond Dark Chocolate Biscotti

Kettle Chips

If you are a potato chip-lover, dip into this robust Kettle sampler.
