Casual Yet Special Snacks for Surprise Guests?

Q: I was caught off guard by some guests the other day, and much to my dismay, I had slim pickings to serve them!

What are some casual, but special snacks that I can have on hand at all times for surprise guests?

Editor: This reminds me of this cheese jar post:

Overall, I would suggest high-end snack bars, like KIND bars, that you can chop up and serve with cheese, and some nice crackers and dried fruit.

Readers, what else would you suggest?
