12 Snacks That Are Perfect for College Care Packages

College students are busy! Darting from class to class, writing papers and studying, being social, and active in other activities. There’s almost no time to eat, so it’s no wonder that college students are notorious for eating junk food. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Snacks can be healthy, so even college students can meet their nutritious needs.

Here are 12 snacks that are perfect for college care packages.

Health Mix

It’s called health mix, but with the sweetness of raisins and dried apples and the crunchiness of roasted cashews, peanuts, almonds, sunflower seeds and pecans, it’s tastier than your average

Cranny Banany

Cranberries, almonds, apples, walnuts, banana chips, raisins, roasted pumpkin seeds, and honey-roasted peanuts—sweet and crunchy!

Rocky Mountain Mix

What a great late-night snack after a night of partying! Almonds, roasted peanuts, raisins, and milk chocolate candies. It’s indulgent enough to make you think you’re binging on a guilty pleasure, but with healthier ingredients, it’s healthy and energizing.

Hot Cajun Mix

Everybody needs a little spice in their life! This mix is packed with hot Cajun corn sticks, roasted and salted peanuts, oriental chili rice crackers, pretzel twists, and roasted soy nuts.

Peanut Butter Pretzels

That perfect balance of salty and sweet, peanut butter pretzels are a great snack to munch on mindlessly while studying or strolling to class.

Strawberry Honey Crunch

This healthy mix might as well be dessert! Strawberries, honey roasted sesame chips, strawberry flavored cranberries, almonds, walnuts, honey roasted peanuts, raisins, and banana chips—delicious!

Honey Toasted Peanuts

College students can munch on this great crunchy snack that will fill them up, power their brain, and satisfy that sweet tooth.


Almonds are filling and pack a ton of health benefits in those bite-sized nuts. They lower blood sugar levels, reduce blood pressure, and lower cholesterol. They’re also a great source of vitamin E, magnesium, copper, and protein.

Gummi Bears

Gummi bears are a great late-night snack whether your student is trapped in the library for the night or just hanging in the dorms after the dining hall is closed. The sugar boost is just enough to power them through to the wee hours of the morning!

Sour Gummi Worms

Those neon colored sour gummy worms are another favorite treat—a great pick-me-up when they’re worn out from studying!

California Gold

This is the healthy yet sweet side of the trail mixes—apricots, roasted almonds, apples, dates, walnuts, banana chips, pineapple, raisins, coconut, and papaya. The almonds are just enough protein to match the sweetness of all those dried fruits!

Pepper & Cheese Pub Mix

Another satisfying snack to munch on in between trips to the dining hall or on lazy weekend afternoons, Pepper & Cheese Pub Mix has roasted pepper and cheese corn sticks, cheddar cheesy corn nuggets, chili lemon corn nuggets, nacho cheese sticks, pretzel twists, and roasted cocktail peanuts.
