I tried to think about the things I enjoyed as a student and what I would have really appreciated as a gift. Coffee, sugar, bacon, and cheese were high on my list--hmmm, I suppose some things never change--and here's what I suggested:
Roadhouse Joe Coffee: Necessary fuel for reading period and exams Sourcream Coffeecake: Quick and easy breakfast on the way to class Chile Cheddar Bread: A party in your pantry, perfect for sharing or saving for yourself Mo's Bacon Bar: Bacon and chocolate is a combination that's meant to be Antique Gruyère: A chunk of gruyere from Murray's changed my life as a sophomore at NYU; gotta pay it forward Chorizo: Tasty formerly illicit pork product. Need I say more? Ginger Brownie: Late-night sugar rush with a kick* Peppery Black Currant Vampire's Lunch Gummis: Aw, remember when your mom used to pack you fruit snacks? Well, these are made with real fruit, and the currant pepper combo should appeal to your developing palate while reminding you that you'll always be your parent's baby
*I couldn't design a care package without a brownie, now could I?
