Snackshot 2021

Snackshot 2021

Last year our donors in Australia made 1,596,803 individual donations, and for that we are ever-so-grateful. We understand that saving lives is strenuous work, and with so many tasty treats to choose from post-donation, see what our donor favourites were in the year that was!

What’s the roll up?

In the battle between the ever-so-popular Sausage Roll vs. our newest contenders the Vege Rolls, the reigning champion has taken first place again with 270,570 gobbled up in 2021, and vege rolls taking a close second place with 232,000 eaten.

Share of the pie 

With a shift in selection due to COVID-19 safety, we had to say goodbye to our beloved party pies this year, but the bigger, beefier cousin joined the crew with a total of 195,744 pies consumed.

Potato/Potato 

The mighty spud can be enjoyed in so many forms, whether you’re a chips or crisps person, most of us can’t be trusted to not finish a whole bag in one sitting. For our donors, favs this year included the sweet-salty flavour favourite honey-soy chips with over 248,500 packets, but the OG took precedence with 317,300 bags of original chips savoured! *crunch*

Sweet something

It’s a constant friendly competition between sweet and savoury tastes, with so many tasty treats to choose from. We can see that our donors have a bit of a sweet tooth with almost 4% more sweet snacks consumed last year.

Juicy stats

Let’s say our mission of ensuring a fruitful post-donation experience for our donors was a success! They loved juice and cold beverages so much that a total of 147,462 litres was consumed. The top favourite being apple at 53,120 litres, and OJ coming in second at 46,485 litres.
