Oh what an emotional time of year. Kids going off to college, parents sobbing as they drop their babies off. I, for one, made the choice to get my college education in Buffalo. For those of you who are going out of town, or may be out of town, here is my list of the…..(info gathered from friends who went out of town) Top 10 College Dorm Must Have Foods!

    It’s a must!! Swedish Fish, Jolly Ranchers, Mini Candy Bars, M&M’s or whatever. Candy provides the sugar jolt to stretch a night of studying and also provides a tasty treat for when times are rough. Plus, your parents aren’t there to tell you not to.

    Energy Drinks

    I’m not a fan unless it’s topped with a lil' Jagermeister…..21 and older of course. Energy drinks will again, provide that super energy rush that may help you get through that awful philosophy class that a friend recommended you take. Ecchh!
