Welcome back to the hub of all things office and groceries related! This week, our hot topic details the top 5 tasty treats for your office delivery. It’s easy, sometimes, to feel shamed into not indulging in foods that are a little more on the calorific side. Much of the dietary rhetoric nowadays is health-focused, which is fantastic in its own way, of course. Check out the best healthy alternatives are in our previous post, Top 5 Healthy Office Snacks.
It is important to ensure you are consuming a balanced diet – especially in the workplace. Over-indulgence is far too easy when you have been staring at a screen all day and a sugary pick-me-up is all that’s on your mind. Nevertheless, a balanced diet can include those tasty treats you crave – it’s merely about moderation. Nashville’s nutrition expert, Sarah-Jane Bedwell, RD, states that, “Everyone should allow themselves a daily treat because there is no reason why a 100- or 200-calorie snack can’t fit into a healthy diet”. So, without further ado, here are our top 5 choices for indulgent snacks to include in your office delivery.
1. Lotus Biscuits
We begin with the humble Lotus biscuit. A scrumptious little strip of caramel goodness, this biscuit is light and moreish. Packaged individually, these are a convenient addition to your office delivery. Leave them in meeting rooms for your clients to snack on, or simply in the kitchen for staff to munch on at their leisure. Founded in Belgium in 1932, Lotus has been making these quality biccies for nearly a century and they are still one of the best out there.
2. Walkers Crisps
Next we move to the savoury option. Crisps are a classic lunchtime snack and which brand could be better than Walker’s. At a mere 129 calories a bag, the snack giant’s kookily flavoured crisp variety is a minor indulgence. Marmite is a ‘love it or hate it flavour’, so why not encourage the office to test out the taste. It’s totally worth it — if you don’t hate Marmite, chances are you’ll LOVE Walker’s Marmite Crisps.
3. Reese’s Nut Bar
Another sweet treat for you here – Reese’s Nut Bar. One of the best confectionaries to reach us from across the pond, this American favourite will satisfy your cravings for something sweet and salty. Delicious silky chocolate wrapped around a sweet and salty peanut butter center…mouth watering isn’t it? Including this little tubular packet of joy into your office delivery will make you a very popular workmate. This one edges a little further up the calorific end of the spectrum, with 250 calories per bar. Not to worry though, just remember that moderation is key. Stick to one a day… maybe two if you’re feeling stressed.
4. Cadbury Boost Bites Bag
Now, sharing is caring. Or so they say. These mouth-watering Cadbury’s Boost Bites come in a handy sharing bag — but bare in mind, that’s merely a serving suggestion. Moderation is important, but if these are included in your office delivery, it is acceptable to keep a bag stashed away for yourself. You have our blessing.
A lesser-known gem of the myriad Cadbury treats, Boost bites consist of silky chocolate truffle with crunchy biscuits dotted through it. A thin caramel coating also lies beneath its chocolate exterior — it’s a taste and texture sensation.
5. Tipiak Macarons
Lastly, but by no means least, we have the Tipiak Gluten Free Macarons. Perfect for those in office who don’t get along well with that particular family of proteins…not naming any names. An elegant and decorative treat that will look delightful when arranged on a platter in board meetings. A petite size, you can chomp on just a few and ease yourself from that creeping guilt of calorific snacking.
We hope you enjoyed our recommendations for the top 5 tasty treats for your office delivery. Remember — it’s ok to indulge, merely in moderation. Sharing on the other hand, there are no health guidelines on that.
