Tagging snacks or soft packaging

Adding snacks to your store is a great way to increase the average ticket amount, as well as offer, go to items during peak snacking periods like 10a and 3p. Regular Tags or Metal flag Tags are most often used on snacks, however always follow best practices:

  • If the tag has the potential to be microwaved, use a Microwave Safe tag
  • If the tag will be placed directly on metal, use a Metal Flag tag
  • If the tag will be placed on a non-metal drink, use a Drink Flag tag

Below are a few examples of tagging different kinds of snacks:

Foiled-Lined Packaging

Many snacks, such as chips, have packaging with a foil liner. In this situation, a Metal Safe must be used. Below are a few examples:

The Metal Flag Tag is placed at the top back of the packaging.


This cheese pack is merchandised upright, and the standard tag is placed directly on the back.



The regular tag is perfect for a packaged cookie. The tag is placed directly on the back of the packaging. A product like this can be merchandised directly on the shelf, in a merchandising package or container.


Snack Pack

A regular tag can be placed directly on the back of a snack pack. An item like the snack pack above should be merchandised vertically for best visibility by customers.
