Field Snack is arguably the best source of additional energy for a new farmer in their first Spring. The next best sources of energy for a new farmer on an E/$ basis are Tulip, Spring Onion, and Salmonberries, though all have limitations. Salmonberries @ 1.67+ E/$ aren't available until mid-Spring. Spring Onion @ 1.625+ E/$ is better until Spring Onion Mastery is earned, meaning it may be better to keep Spring Onions to sell later. Tulip @ 1.5+ E/$ can only be grown to obtain significant quantity, and so requires a significant energy investment in addition to it's $ cost.

A new farmer can check the existing trees on the farm without expending further energy. Additional seeds can be purposefully dug from around trees as well for a small amount of E, meaning tree seeds are plentiful on the farm from the first Spring, and until the remaining trees are removed to facilitate expansion. Field Snack grants 1.5 E/$, using the value of the tree seeds before the snack is made(45 E for 30 g).
