I'd rather have a larger paycheck.
Do you know how little it costs to fully stock candy / snacks / soda? In my previous company, I volunteered to make sure that the kitchen in our startup was fully stocked and I basically ordered anything that people wanted that was available through Costco business delivery (never had to say no to anyone). It costed less than 500 dollars a month for 15 people. That is virtually nothing compared to salary and office rent, especially when you take into account taxes -- the fact that paying a salary is taxed while spending the money on stuff is deducted.
Yeah, full meals would be more expensive, but not supplying free premium drinks and snacks is just cutting costs in the wrong places.
