Today we’ll talk about 8+ vocabulary to speak about snacks on your next IELTS Speaking Exam.

When would the topic of ‘snacks‘ come up on IELTS?

This topic would most likely appear in Speaking Part 1, perhaps in a question like, “What kind of snacks do you most enjoy?

However, it could easily be seen in a Part 2 card, such as, “Describe a snack that reminds you of your childhood.”

Then, in IELTS Speaking Part 3, you may face a question like, “Is it healthy to have a habit of snacking often?

In fact, the healthiness of one’s diet may even be seen in a Writing Task 2 essay prompt.

Thus, let’s explore some impressive vocabulary for this specific IELTS topic!
