Improved savory snack food items include a nonsweet, sugar-based binder composition which adheres one or more toppings to a base portion of the snack. The binder does not undesirably alter the taste of snack food items and substantially reduces separation of toppings from the snack food items during production, packaging, shipping and, most importantly, during handling by the consumer. The binder also reduces transfer of oil and fat and powders to the hands of the consumer.
