    "Thank you" snack ideas?

    I absolutely adore the service dept at the dealership that I bring my car to. They are so friendly and take super good care of me and my car. They're going to be doing some work for me either later this week or early next. I want to bring in a little "thank you" snack just to do something thoughtful. I'm going to be dropping my car off at 7am. Donuts are the easiest thing but at the same time, I kinda feel badly providing food that I wouldn't eat myself. But it's a shop full of guys so I assume they like junky stuff like that.

    Can anyone suggest something a little more healthy that's easy, quick and cheap?

    Thanks!

    Bag o' mixed fruit. Healthy, quick, and I think a bag costs about $5-7, if you don't get organic.

    How many guys work there? Maybe you could order them a party-size pizza for lunch? Probably less than 20.00 if you pick it up and bring it over

    Nuts. Pistachios, mixed nuts, whatever floats your boat.

    Dunno about other men, but my husband raves about jerky whenever I get to making it. I bet they would also like salami... so, what I am driving at is a platter of deli meats, and veggies and, yes, crackers. With veggies being there, people have an option to skip crackers!

    That was my first thought but I discarded it because it's going to be in the morning. But whatever, I'll eat meat and cheese anytime of day!!

    I can't believe y'all.

    Nobody suggested bacon.
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    Heh, do you think a guy working at the car-bay in the workshop is going to squint daintily at the roast beef and pepperoni stick and go: "mmgh, I kindda crave something lighter... maybe a bran muffin and a bit of fruit... Or a rice cake topped with that yummy dessert non-fat yogurt... actually, all I need is just a piece of chewing gum. yes, that's it! A great flavor in 4 calories! mmgh...."

    The rule at my partner's work is that if you are more than 15 minutes late, you owe doughnuts for the crew. None of the guys complained when he brought bacon-wrapped eggs instead. Actually, he was the most popular guy on site that day.
