HC Brandeis’ Favorite Study Snacks

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Brandeis chapter.

Let’s face it; no one enjoys studying for finals. However, late night library cram sessions can be tremendously improved if you have delicious and nutritious snacks that provide you with stamina to power through those papers, readings and flashcards. When it comes to finals study snacks, Her Campus Brandeis is loyal to three in particular: popchips, Luna Bars and Chipotle. Here’s why these foods fuel us collegeiettes during finals.

LUNA Bars: LUNA bars are the first nutrition bars specially formulated with a woman’s needs in mind. They help nourish women throughout their busy days and lives by providing valuable nutrients women often lack, such as folic acid, calcium, iron, vitamin D and other vitamins and minerals, which are essential to a women’s everyday needs. Additionally, they come in a variety of delicious flavors and satisfy your sweet tooth without the guilt because they are less than 200 calories. You can even pick them up in the C-Store!

popchips: popchips make for an ideal study snack because they have all the deliciousness of potato chips without the guilt! When studying, it is easy to lose track of how much you are eating because you are multi-tasking. Before you know it you have eaten an entire bag of chips and feel gross afterward because they are fried (yuck!). Next time you are craving a salty snack, opt for popchips. They are not only delicious but are also healthier than normal potato chips since they have half of the fat while still retaining the delicious salty potato flavor.

Chipotle: We love Chipotle because whether we get a burrito bowl, tacos, a quesadilla, or a burrito, we know that we will be full and have the fuel we need to get through our assignments. When we are in the mood to take a study break and get off campus we head to the Chipotle on Main Street for a yummy lunch or dinner.

In order to help us survive finals, these three companies hooked us up with some goodies! LUNA gave us mini LUNA Bars, popchips gave us some bags of chips, and Chipotle gave us buy one get one free burrito cards! Make sure you are on the look out for Her Campus writers this week in the library because they will be spreading some of the love to help you survive finals. Thank you LUNA, popchips, and Chipotle!
