CampusCube College Care Package is a subscription box that delivers treats to your college student to help them get through their year. Sign your child up for CampusCube and they will receive up to 4 boxes per semester, or 8 throughout the school year, depending on which plan you choose. You can also send a one-time box for a birthday, exam survival, or just because. CampusCube offers a version for boys or girls and I will be reviewing the items from the Girl’s Halloween October Cube. CampusCube is $39.95 a box and includes FedEx Ground Shipping. CampusCube offers a gluten-free version, too.

DEAL: Take $5 off your box! Use coupon code Hello5.

Here’s a sample of the personalized card your child will receive with their box. The card includes a support number that your student can call if there is a problem with their box. I also received a binder clip (more about that below).

The flip side of the card gave instructions for upcycling the cube into colorful storage boxes using binder clips, or you can use it as a carrying crate!

As the year goes on just add more cubes!

First look!

CampusCube does a wonderful job on presentation and I thought everything looked great. It was very bright and cheerful. My college sophomore was home for the weekend and was happy to take this back to school with her. She then reported back what she thought as she tried all of the items.

Everything in the box! CampusCube does a great job of telling you exactly what will be included in the current shipment. I did notice that one item was different than what was listed on the website but the substitution was even bigger than the original item.

Swedish Fish I’ve never tried a Swedish Fish, but my daughters seem to like them and chewy candies usually travel well.

Fancypants Baking Co. Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies are made in a nut-free facility and feature non-GMO ingredients. Gemma said they were buttery, savory, crispy, and chocolatey and wished that a serving size was more than 3 cookies.

Angie’s Boom Chicka Pop Pumpkin Spice Kettle Corn Gemma said this wasn’t her favorite. She looked for it at the store and found other flavors that looked good, but wouldn’t buy this one again. I think it was a good try though, perfect for the season.

Project 7 Sour Caramel Apple Sugar-Free Gum is a seasonal flavor of gourmet gum! Gemma said it was so yummy and chewed it while doing her math homework so she could remember the info for her math exam (the act of chewing gum while studying may help improve retention of info.) She said the flavor was sour yet caramely and was yummy.

Gemma received two bars from Jouzge – a protein bar that tastes like a candy bar and that is marketed to young women. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough was “like eating a Snickers bar and I really want to look for these at the store.” Gemma said it had a quote that says challenges are opportunities to show greatness and loved the empowering message. She also received Chocolate Peanut Butter (there is one other flavor online, Chocolate Mint).

Tazo Chai Pumpkin Spice Tea is a nice way to spend some time on a weekend morning, and although Gemma prefers coffee, she also has inherited my love for tea. Even those who live in a dorm usually have access to a microwave so they can steep up a relaxing beverage in no time.

NPW Skull Air Freshener is pretty cool to have in an October box – it features a calavera, a decorative skull for Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead.) Gemma said it smells like roses, which smells like death to me so that seems appropriate. She also said it was kind of strong but would be perfect for her car.

Jillibean Soup Day 2 Day Chevron Print Zipper Pouch is just adorable – check out those colors! It’s made of either nylon or plastic and would double as a makeup bag or even a small clutch.

NPW Neon Crayons and Jillibean Soup Day 2 Day To-Do Sticky Notes are helpful when it comes time to study, or just to use during downtime. I used to use a ton of sticky notes in my college textbooks so I could go back and find important things when it came time to study.

You Are Amazing Exfoliating Body Scrub & Wash in Tropical Kiwi adds a tropical lift to cooler fall mornings. Pumice provides the grit as opposed to plastic microbeads.

I had Gemma sum up this month’s box: “I really enjoy getting Campus Cube. I actually get really excited for it because I am always curious to see what is going to be inside. I like when the boxes are themed with holidays and seasons because I don’t get to celebrate holidays as much when I’m away at school. My favorite part of this month’s box was the pencil pouch and desk supplies as well as the protein bars. My least favorite part was the popcorn. I like Campus Cube because it has different snacks I can take each day with my lunch.”

CampusCube sure puts out an awesome box! This is truly a wonderful care package of helpful items, delicious snacks, and pampering self-care treats. It had a cute theme and the items all went together perfectly, plus the presentation is one of the best! If you’re a busy parent, you will save loads of time not running around and win points from your student for getting them such a cute box. Also, this box would be great not only for college students, but high school students or anyone who recently moved away from home who could use a little extra box of happiness once in a while.
