Can you tell we like Trader Joe’s?

Midterm season is stressful to begin with, but it’s 10x worse if you are hungry/dehydrated. Maybe 20x worse if being hangry runs in your family like it does in mine.

If you’re in need of study snacks and beverages, look no further than our current favorites!


Ok, we see you with that vitamin C! Good for you for not entering spring break with scurvy.

  • A sliced apple with peanut butter—Honeycrisp apple, crunchy peanut butter… I’m back in my apple era y’all.
  • Trader Joe’s dried mango
    • TJ’s soft and juicy mango, nothing better on this earth
