The Anti-Freshman 15 Care Package

Posted Sep 22 2010 8:38am

Yesterday, I gave you all a peek into my college days and promised a healthy, tasty gift to send to your favorite college goer, or anyone really. This idea came to me when I was searching for something fun to send my sister Alyssa who is currently a sophomore at Quinnipiac and found the ultimate college care package. Of course, you can always make homemade goodies, but if you are short on time or a mess in the kitchen, here are some fun ideas.

One Lucky Duck , Sarma of Pure Food & Wine’s company, has a ready-made college friendly care package full of their best goodies including:

“Cheese-y Quackers and Spicy Cashews, perfect for late night study fuel, Chocolate Chip Cookies and Blonde Macaroons, for a sweet tooth, and Cinnamon Crispies and a Honey Bunches Grawola bar for a quick and healthy breakfast.” The package also includes a stainless steel BPA-free One Lucky Duck Water Bottle and a One Lucky Duck navy blue tote bag. It’s the bees’ knees! It’s a little pricey at $85, but that’s a 15% discount from buying the goodies individually.

Want to put together your own? Here are some of my other favorite easy-to-send goodies:

If an oven is available, Purely Elizabeth has amazing muffin, pancake and now cookie mixes. I recommend the samplers . Pure, natural and delicious, it will save any student from those nasty muffins in the dining hall

Vegan cookies by Allison’s Gourmet

These cookies are outrageous! My favorite are the Butterscotch Pecan. I like to stick them in the freezer or warm them in the microwave.

A delicious nut butter mix, I’m obsessed with I recommend Justin’s Nut Butter. Seriously, whoever Justin is, I want to kiss him – they are that good. They have lots of varieties, including easy to carry to class individual packs. My favorite is the maple almond butter.

Or, for the chips and dip kind of undergrad, Road’s End Nacho “Cheese” Dip .

The anti-potato chip: Kaia Foods Kale Chips. Available at Vegan Essentials.

And a smart, protein snack. Primal Strips Vegan Jerky.

Basically, you want to include easy to transport, full of flavor, healthier options that are a little sweet, a little savory and every bit delicious. :)

P.S. If you guys are looking to keep up with the HB Challenge, I created a separate page. It is the tab labeled “HBC.”
