What does everyone munch with their coffee?

So I am looking for the best snack to have with my afternoon cup. Thus far I have been through all the normal cookies and cakes, but the thing that I have found that actually best compliments the flavor is dates. Curious as to what others enjoy ...

    I like to have a high protein/fiber bar. It keeps me full until dinner.

      I agree about dates. Or other dried fruit, like figs.

        Biscotti :)

        Maple Shortbread

        Dark Chocolate

        Ice Cream... or Frozen Yogurt for a healthier go... or Yogurt -- honestly...

        My ex rubs lemon around the rim of his espresso cup and says it's lovely...

          there are these biscotti-like cookies that trader joe's sells called ALMONDINA.
          they are very thin and very hard.
          perfect for coffee

              Nothing. I like my coffee alone.

                Coffee is for breakfast in my world Afternoon is tea, preferably with some sort of small, not too sweet cookie. Right now I am found of gingersnaps (the very thin Swedish ones) with a thin spread of lemon curd.

                  Cheese toast! Toasted pumpernickle w/ a spread of butter and a layer of cheese (right now I'm obsessed with Dubliner. Perfect snack with coffee, sometimes even have it for breakfast.
