ThorLabs' "Lab Snacks"

Has anyone ordered stuff from ThorLabs? I have, and quite a few times. I ordered mainly optics equipment from them, and they provide good stuff and good service. But one amusing and fun things they do is that, when they ship the stuff that I ordered, they included this "care package", or what they call "Lab Snacks". This can be a small package or even a small box containing either candy, nuts, or other snacks. This always brought a smile to my face whenever I open a shipment from them. I always forget they do that and it is always a present surprise to see this extra packet or box along with your optics equipment. As far as I know, they are the only company that does that, and I routinely order stuff from many different vendors.

In any case, here are a couple of pictures of the most recent Lab Snacks that I got from them.

We get them. A lot. I blogged about the return to the full Lab Snack portion was a sign of economic recovery

I've gotten food from other vendors, too. And t-shirts, post-it notes and pens. Lots of pens.

the surface preparation laboratory sent me a nice toy-cube to play with. From Thorlabs itself I got a T-Shirt and a coffee mug.

I ordered too, this time generously each box has many snacks! I love this company!
