15 Treats for Your Colleagues (and You)

By • April 11, 2014 • 2 Comments

If you were wondering whether you should eat that snack on your desk, the answer is yes. Always. Because snacks are our mid-day champions, our loyal friends who inspire us to press on despite those long hours ahead. And when you bring them to the office? You’re nothing short of a weekday hero. 

Forget the soggy carrots of your childhood. When it comes to snack time, we’re talking pillowy muffins and crisp cookies, airy popovers and decadent chocolate cake. There’s a little indulgence for every occasion, whether you’re thanking a colleague or smoothing over a workplace spat. Or maybe you just need something wonderful to look forward to at work -- and there’s a snack for that, too. Go crunchy or chewy, sweet or savory...but whatever you do, just remember to save a bite for the cook.

I think popovers are best when fresh out of the oven (oh, I wish my office had an oven). Love the other picks!

Good point, Katelinlee -- we're a little spoiled over in our test kitchen!
