Your Two Cents: Does Your Office Provide Treats?

A friend of mine has been gloating about her office installing a bar fully stocked with beer and cocktail fixings for employees to enjoy whenever they please. When she first told me it was installed I thought "How very old fashioned Mad Men! I wonder if they booze before client meetings?" but quickly sobered up and wondered if the bar is just an HR and productivity disaster waiting to happen.

While mixed drinks aren't on the menu at most workplaces, in my experience it's fairly common for employers to stock the office kitchen or common area with soda, snacks and even occasional bagel breakfasts if there's a budget for it. Does your office offer treats or do you have to whip out your wallet?
