My daughter Eleanor is half way through her first semester of college studying Nursing, and it has been an adjustment for her.Â One of the biggest things she has had to get used to is sharing a small dorm room and eating in the cafeteria.Â Of course as a freshman she had low priority when it came to selecting a dorm, so she got one that is all the way at the far end of campus, away from classrooms and food.Â So dorm room snacks have become important to her!
Luckily Amazon makes it easy to create a care package for college students like Eleanor.Â They recently launced the #AmazonWishList feature, which is the perfect way to make sure college kids get what they really want. Using this feature anyone can add to an Amazon Wish List right from twitter.Â If you see a tweet with an Amazon product link all you have to do is add #AmazonWishList to the reply, and the item will show up on your wish list.Â Most college students are on twitter all the time, so this is an easy way for them to keep a running list of what they need, and you can have it delivered directly to the dorm.
What kinds of things make the best snacks for dorm rooms?Â Things that take little preparation but that are still filling are tops with busy college students.Â Eleanor has a small refrigerator under her bed and a tiny microwave on top of her dresser, which pretty much is all that is allowed in the dorm.Â Eleanor’s nursing class started with 62 students, and as of now there are only 30 left!Â So this is not a program for the faint of heart, and with midterms coming up she needs to stock up for some long hours of studying to make sure she is one of the ones who passes.
Mac & Cheese makes a great snack, andÂ KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner Cups are perfect for making a single serving in a dorm room.Â In just 3 1/2 minutes a student can have a nice hot snack ready by just adding water.Â It is perfect for a late night snack to fuel a night of studying.
Another good option for the dorm is Planters Dry Roasted Peanuts.Â Peanuts are a nutrient-rich, tasty snack that provide a good amount of protein, which is not easy to find in a dorm room snack.
Here is the rest of Eleanor’s list of the Top Ten Dorm Room Snacks!
- Mac & Cheese Cups
- Tortilla chips
- Granola Bars
- Pudding cups
- Instant Oatmeal Cups
- Fruit cups
