Coming back to work or school after a long, relaxing vacation is always rough. Knowing there's a little something special to look forward to in your lunch bag can help make the transition back to the daily grind more bearable, don't you think? These nibbles will do just the trick.

The idea is to give yourself - and your loved ones - a treat you wouldn't normally pack in your lunch. Make its something comforting or unexpected, something that will bring a smile as soon as the lunch bag is opened:

Sweet Treats
1. Meringue Kisses
2. Caramel Popcorn
3. Candied Bacon Fudge
4. Peach and Ginger Hand Pies
5. Milk and Honey Balls

Savory Snacks
6. Spicy Oven Roasted Chickpeas
7. Smoky Deviled Eggs with Greek Yogurt
8. Stuffed Figs with Honey-Balsamic Syrup
9. Roasted Almonds with Paprika and Orange
10. Homemade Potato Chips with Rosemary

What special treats do you like to find in your lunch?
