barkThins Snacking Chocolate in Dark Chocolate Almond with Sea Salt, 2 oz. – Value $1.95 (buy a 4.7 oz. for $4.59 at Target)

Starting out strong! These were the ideal combo of slightly bitter dark chocolate and salt with a nice crunch from the almonds. I’m a big fan of sweet meets salty snacks like this one. In fact, pretzels with orange juice were my ‘studying snack’ back in college. Now, I’m not currently a student, but these sort of bring me back to that time. Good job setting the tone, CampusCube.

RXBar Blueberry Protein Bar, 1.83 oz. – Value $1.99

I’m familiar RXBars as I began purchasing them pretty frequently for travel. This blueberry variation is really tasty, and I love the chewy consistency and simple ingredients. I wish I had these in college instead of the sugar-laden generic granola bars that I’d down daily.

Newman’s Own Organic Microwave Popcorn, 2.8 oz. – Value $3.38 (buy a 3-pack for $10.13)

Popcorn is another one of those snacks that makes me nostalgic for my studyin’ years. You can’t beat the ease of throwing a bag into your dorm room microwave during a post-exam movie, and this organic option is really great.

Goodie Girl Chocolate Chunk Cookies, 2 oz. – Value $3.00? (buy a pack of 6 along with 6 sleeves of Mint Slims for $35.94)

I like my cookies on the chewy side, but these are nice as a quick, crispy snack. Would be made better with milk! Big bonus that they’re gluten free.

Cup Noodles Chicken Ramen, 2.5 oz. – Value $0.29

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to taste these noodles since I don’t eat meat (or meat flavoring, for that matter). I know that I’ve tried these years ago, and I remember them being pretty easy to prepare (just add hot water!) and sufficiently tasty. A college kid’s staple.

Emergency Chocolate Bar, 3.5 oz. – Value $4.95

I love the clever premise of this packaging (chocoholic here, hi). The chocolate itself is pretty standard, but it fits the bill (we’re not picky).

Campus Cube Exam Survival June 2017

Ghirardelli Hot Cocoa, 1 oz. – Value $6.11

Even though we’re approaching the peak of summer, a delicious cup of hot cocoa is very necessary some evenings. I liked this one with soy milk, but water works too. Everyone has their favorite way to prepare hot cocoa, it seems!

Olly Nutrition Goodbye Stress, 2 servings – Value $1.33 (buy 42 gummies for $13.99)

For sure the most intriguing item in this box. While I didn’t notice any obvious effects from these gummies, they tasted good! Supplements like these can come across as sort of gimmicky to me though. Into the sentiment but not sure about the results.

Wireless Wipes Screen and Phone Wipes – Value $5.95

These wipes will be nice to have on hand since I use my laptop constantly. I can see a college student getting a lot of leverage out of them. Man, CampusCube thinks of everything.

Creative Snacks Co. Coconut Bites, 4 oz. – Value $3.66 (buy a 14 oz. bag for $12.82)

My favorite item in this box! Coconut is my first true love, and these coconut bites have the best flavor. I was expecting some bigger chunks though — this stuff has more of a loose granola texture. I still ate it out of the bag even though it was a bit messy.

Highlighter – Value $0.94 (buy 2 for $1.87)

A good student staple!

Campus Cube Exam Survival June 2017

Smiley Face Stress Ball – Value 0.74? (buy a pack of 12 for $8.86)

This stress ball instantly put a smile on my face. So… I suppose it works? 🙂 Keep it on your desk for some relief.

NPW Beauty Junky Tissue Pack – $1.50

Really into the “stop your sniffle” message on this tissue pack. Not sure if the intent of including these was rooted in tissues being a self-care staple or if there’s a deeper meaning here (tears?). Cute, nonetheless.

CampusCube Exclusive “You Got This” Go Cup – Value $7?

This will come in handy in my house! I don’t think I had a travel mug when I was in college, but it would have been a lifesaver for 8am class days. Bonus, this CampusCube exclusive is made in the USA.

Verdict: This box’s estimated value comes in at a $42.79. Given that it’s priced at $39.95, I would say that the value is pretty good! More than anything, the idea behind this box is just so awesome to me. What a perfect gift for a recent graduate or a ‘just because’ gift to add some joy to a stressed out student’s life.

  1. Cute idea, but speaking as a college student I feel like that value is not enough greater than the box price. If you’re only getting $3 more in value it’s be better to send things more customized to your own child(such as their favorite kind of chocolate instead of a “meh” bar and no meat for a vegitarian). It’ll be cheaper and more sentimental.

  2. Thanks for the great review. I actually sent this to both of my kids at college – one boy and one girl – and they loved it. Great assortment of snacks and a fun pick-me-up…and a chance for me to send a note to say how proud I am (which I probably forget to say often enough:)

    • Awesome! Glad you’re loving it. 🙂

  3. My daughter and I just looked at this together. This would not have been a good fit for her this semester. I would have been sad to spend $40 on cup of noodles!

    • I can understand what you mean, but you’re definitely not spending $40 only on the cup of noodles.

    • @jody You might want to check out kites & ivy. They do college boxes 4 times per year aimed at females. Less snacks and more on taking care of yourself and empowering your spirit. About the same price point.

      • I looked at Kites and Ivy but it auto-renews without any chance for cancellation or refund after it auto-renewed. A friend of mine got stuck paying for another year when she only wanted one year. What I like about CampusCube is that it’s a one-time purchase and they don’t charge me again unless I decide to place another order.
