I keep tea at my desk. My office supplies snacks. We have been trying to keep things somewhat healthy so we have pretzels, almonds, cashews, granola bars, string cheese, occasionally fresh fruit, and things like that.

lol... I do have a bottle of tequila on my desk... unopened so far.... !!


We have all the free drinks we need..pop, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, apple cider and fruit juices. Vending machines are filled with junk food and the cafe is in the building next door. You can get almost any thing there.

i keep several teas, bag and loose, and a few instant iced tea and lemonade mixes.

often, i collect a few pieces of fruit, bags of chips, cans of soda, and granola bars from the catering services on the weekends and toss them in or on my desk to eat during the week.

there's also several candy machines on different floors, and a full cafeteria on the lower level. unfortunately for us vampires, it's only open from 6am to 8pm.

I keep a basket of mini chocolates on a bookshelf in my office at work, a bag of tortilla chips and sometimes Rosemary & Olive Oil Triscuits in a drawer, and cheese dip for the chips, sliced turkey and Havarti cheese for the Triscuits in the fridge. I also have yogurt and peaches in the fridge and hot chocolate packets in a drawer. I also have a bottle of Texas Pete hot sauce in the drawer

I can run upstairs to my kitchen, so no snacks down here in the basement. :)

Well, anymore I am at work only one day a week. The rest I work from home....so, you can imagine that my snack access at home is far better than what I would keep handy at work.

At work, it is usually nuts, oatmeal, and jerky.
