Everyone has their one or two favorite “not-so-healthy” snacks that they enjoy now and then. While we’ve all heard that moderation is key, deciding whether to choose healthy can be quite the dilemma. Often Augusta consumers want to eat healthily, but at the same time, they want to visit the break room vending machine and grab their favorite sweet or salty guilty pleasure.
Favorite Snacks List
Many of Augusta’s favorite sweet and salty snacks have been around for more than 30 years. Is yours in the following list?
- Confections (chocolate, candy, etc.): PEZ (1950), Swedish Fish (the late 1950s), Nerds (1983), anything made with chocolate
- Salty: sunflower seeds, Cheese Balls (the 1980s), Combos (mid-1970s), Goldfish, Doritos (1974), Pringles (1975), chips, crackers
- Cookies and Snack Cakes: Famous Amos cookies (1975), animal crackers (1902), Rice Krispies Treats, Oatmeal Cream Pies (1960), Oreos, Pop-tarts (1964)
- Other snacks: Dippin’ Dots (1987), Fruit Roll-ups (1991) or fruit snacks, granola bars, Milk ‘n’ Cereal Bars or breakfast bars (the 1990s – early 2000s)
Your Break Room Menu
If Augusta employees are looking, however, for something a little healthier, there are a lot of healthy sweet and salty options available too. Healthier snack options include fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, popcorn, yogurt smoothies, salsa, and hummus. Many of these healthy snacks can also be combined to create a healthy mini-meal when there isn’t enough time for a sit-down meal.
No one can predict when a craving will hit. They can strike Augusta employees at any time of the day or night. Micro-markets and vending machines are open 24/7 to meet those needs. Providing an easily accessible, on-site location where various snacks and beverages are available is just one benefit that lets your employees know they are valuable.
Another benefit is to offer employees everything at a reduced or zero cost. Employees will welcome both on-site snack and beverage options and more cash in their pockets.
Don’t forget to add cold refreshing beverages and office coffee service to your break room menu. Drinks such as cold water are hydrating, coffee or tea are energizing, and snacks are filling. It’s essential to keep your employees hydrated, energized, and satiated.
