The next time you need some help deciding what to pick for a midday munch, try Snack Data, a quirky, illustrated catalogue of foods. Part reference guide, part art project, it's the latest idiosyncratic creation of Los Angeles-based web developer Beau Johnson. The entries are arranged by flavor, cuisine, and type of food, making it easy to find whatever kind of snack you desire.
