Having one sugary snack (Pop-Tarts) is a good start, but even in a health-conscious environment, it helps to have a few options on hand for peckish employees to choose from.

Enter Oreo Cookies. This variety pack bundles two regular-sized Oreos in each individual bag, with the breakdown as follows: 30 of the packs include two regular Oreos, 20 packs are double-stuffed Oreos, and 10 packs are vanilla (golden) Oreos.

Like Pop-Tarts, Oreos are super affordable: A box with 60 packs (120 Oreos total) costs $16.99.

Jack Link's All-American Beef Stick

Keep the meat-lovers in your office happy with these hearty meat-and-cheese snacks.

Each individual Jack Link's All American Beef Stick snack pack includes a protein-rich, jerky-style beef stick and a stick of Wisconsin cheese.

As a savory midday snack, a Jack Link’s can tide workers over through the end of the workday. And at $19.99, a 16-count pack helps your dollar go further too.

Wholly Guacamole Classic Guacamole Mini Cup

It’s crucial to offer some fruits and vegetables amid the carbohydrates and proteins. However, it can be hard to find individually wrapped veggie-based snacks — foods like baby carrots and sugar snap peas usually come in Costco-sized bags.

The Wholly Guacamole Classic Guacamole Mini Cup is a great solution. And since a package of 20 costs just $14.99, it’s also one of the cheaper snack options on our list.

Mott’s 100% Apple Juice

If your office has a kitchen space, you probably have a tea kettle, coffee maker, or drink machine. But it’s helpful to provide flavorful alternative drinks for anyone who wants to avoid the afternoon caffeine jitters.

With Mott's 100% Apple Juice, you won’t have to pay coffee-shop prices: A box of 24 drinks at 8 ounces each costs $14.29.
