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 ...

          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.

            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.

              Nothing. I like my coffee alone.

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

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

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