CampusCube for Guys ‘Midnight Snack’ Care Package May 2018 Review
While it has been a few years since I was in college, I remember those days vividly and depended on care packages from my parents as I went to school five hours away from home. Let’s see what this month’s box brought us!
R.E.D.D Chocolate Superfood Energy Bar – Buy a pack of 12 for $35.88
This bar is packed with 10 grams of protein, superfoods, vitamins, minerals, and a shot of caffeine for a quick energy boost. I tend to not love energy bars like this as they just taste too “earthy” for me. This bar had a nice crunch to it and was soft like a brownie. It was filling and would make a great boost in the morning or late in the afternoon. I could see this being a great snack to turn to on a night of studying instead of something like a candy bar, which was always my go-to!
Olly Superfood Protein Smoothie x2, 1.4 oz. – Buy a 22.5 oz container for $27.99
These protein smoothie packs are made to be an easy way to make a healthy drink. All you have to do is mix the powder with a liquid like milk, water, coconut milk, almond milk, etc. No need to use a blender or even add ice if you don’t want to. However, I think this would benefit from adding it all into a blender with ice. I didn’t really enjoy this drink very much, it was very grainy and thin, yet it clumped together no matter how much I stirred. It was very tart with a strong berry flavor with hints of sweetness in each sip. I could not bring myself to finishing this drink, but since I got two packets, I am going to try making it in my blender next time.
Creative Snacks Company Happy Trails, 3 oz. – Buy a pack of 6 for $19.82
I love trail mix so much, but it’s not something that I normally buy anymore. I was beyond excited to receive this snack and gobbled it down within a day. This is the perfect study snack, sweet treat on the go, or something to just enjoy while studying for finals. Trail mix really does remind me of my college does so I love that this snack was in this months box.
Organic Forto Coffee Hershey’s Chocolate, 7 fl oz. – Buy a box of 6 for $18 (found here for $15)
This is a little cold coffee that you can enjoy on the go, no need to brew or add anything. It is a sweet and creamy Hershey chocolate flavor and goes down smoothly. This is something I would have tossed in my bag in a hurry to an early morning class for a quick burst of energy.
Hammond’s Midnight Snack – Retail Value $3.95
This chocolate bar was a delightful surprise! It is made with milk chocolate, pretzel, cookie, brittle, marshmallow, and cereal. The chocolate was rich and creamy and there was a wonderful crunch from the pretzel, cookie, and cereal. The marshmallow was really the shining star though! This is the type of late night snack I would turn to always in college!
The Original Cup Noodles Chicken Flavor, 2.25 oz. – Buy a box of 12 for $9.92
This is a classic college snack for me so I was so happy to see it this month! I spent many nights in the library where I would just bring a box of ramen with me to eat quickly. It is super salty and super filling, the perfect late night snack!
Pretzel Pete Mini Twists Salted Caramel, 3.5 oz. – Buy a box of 8 for $20
I love pretzels, but what I love more is a sweet and salty pretzel version. These pretzels are amazing I could not put them down! The caramel flavor really shines through and you get light hints of salt with every pretzel piece. The perfect sweet treat while studying or really for anytime!
Oven Baked Pizza Chips Tomato & Basil, 4.5 oz. – Retail Value $2.99
I couldn’t believe that these chips are made with pizza dough! They have a lovely crunch to them and would be perfect used with a hummus dip or paired with cheese slices. The tomato flavor was strong but not overpowering with a light hint of basil.
Dude Shower On The Go Body Wipe x2 – Buy a box of 10 for $7.99
These shower wipes are meant for guys so I passed them along to my husband. They have a light and fresh scent so nothing overpowering. He said that he used them after working out and that he felt very refreshed and less smelly after. This is great for someone to use that is going from the gym to class or has just been in the library for a little too long.
Pizza Slice Socks – Retail Value $8.99
These socks are so cute! They are a men’s size 7 to 12 so they don’t fit my foot, but I was happy to pass them along to my husband. He loves pizza and funky socks so these are perfect for him. These are a wonderful gift to send to a college guy that probably needs some fresh and fun socks to wear!
Verdict: This month’s CampusCube was filled with wonderful snacks! I remember those long study sessions, days of going from my internship to class, from the gym to class and snacks were always something that I was in need of. There is a great mix of sweet treats and some healthier options that are perfect for any time of the day. I receive a whopping ten items, and it was so great seeing the non-snack items like the socks. What a fun and easy way to fill your college student up with some yummy treats!
