If you have a lot of posts with long slugs, for ex, 40-places-to-eat-snickers-bars-when-hungry, is it worth converting them to something shorter? For ex: places-to-eat-snickers-bars. I've read a few articles that say it is, and other sources that say it doesn't matter.


No-one can say for sure what is the ideal URL-length. Mostly it is recommended to keep the URL below 60-70 characters. I recommend on reading this, this and this.
