    a snack

    Hi,

    I am at work and I fell hungry. Then I ask a colleague: "Would you like to join me for a snack?"

    I wonder what's the most common way to say it, please.

    Thanks.

    Re: a snack

    "Would you like to join me for a snack?"
    Yes, this is fine.

    Even more informally, it might be:

    "Want to get a bite to eat?"
    "Want to get a snack?"

    Re: a snack

    Or, as a more oblique invitation, which doesn't put the colleague in the embarrassing position of having to say no:

    1. I'm going out to get something to eat. Did you want me to get you anything?
