But a recent study has found that the office candy jar can add up to seven pounds to a person’s weight.

Cornell University found that the average American worker is packing on the extra weight every year, despite the fact almost a third are on diets.

The easily-accessible, bite-sized treats found in offices are known to be significant contributors.

Cornell professor Brian Wansink said: ‘It’s ridiculous what it does.

‘We have found that, if you have a clear candy jar it can add up to seven pounds in a year.’

Mr Wansink, who wrote the book Mindless Eating, says that candy left out in the open can play havoc with people’s diets and will have most people reaching for some, even when they are not hungry.
