The resulting combination is so yummy! this snack size bag is perfect for eating between classes. I’ve always been a big fan of jerk and this Think Jerky Sriracha Honey Free-Range Turkey Jerky is awesome. It’s packed with bold spicy, sweet flavor and the quality of the turkey is top noch.

240 Sweet Crunchy Cinnamon Marshmallows are super fluffy and they have a great vanilla flavor. They’re also coasted with Saigon cinnamon and granulated sugar for an added sweet crunch. Just try not to eat the entire bag all at once. These would be taste great in s’mores too. The Grove Square Spiced Apple Cider Single Serve K-Cup is the perfect way to warm up on a cold winter day. The cider contains cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove!

Shark Fresh Linen Scent Fabric Freshener can be sprayed directly onto linens, towels, or other fabrics to leave them with a fresh, clean scent. The product contains no chemical products or additives. This spray is great for gym bags and tennis shoes as well. The Viter Caffeine Energy Mints have strong peppermint flavor with a fresh kick that will energize you and freshen your breath. Each sugar-free, zero calorie mint contains 40 mg of caffeine as well as a Vitamin B complex. Finally, the Antiac Daily Cleansing Face Wash sample can be carried in your dopp kit.

The PopSockets Phone Stand and Grip is the latest must-have accessory for your phone. The PopSocket easily adheres to the back of your phone and it can serve as a grip, a stand, an earbud-management system, or just something to play with. They also make holding tablets and e-readers more comfortable and secure. I like the Tether Box ear buds too. It’s great to have a back up pair so I always seem to misplace mine!

verdict

I totally love this twist on the classic college care package. It’s such an awesome way to show someone that you care for them. The December subscription box was filled with items specially recommended by student ambassadors from around the U.S. My favorite products in this month’s shipment were the Think Jerky Turkey Jerky and the 240 Sweet Marshmallows. Both snacks are delicious and I would definitely buy them again. I can’t wait to see what Tether Box delivers next!
