You all know my love for Amazon knows no limit, and food is no exception. I’ve had so many college girls reach out to me asking if I could do a post on dorm snacks to keep on hand throughout the semester. I loved this idea, but I also wanted to make sure what I was recommending was accessible to ALL of you! I get a lot of questions about where I purchase things, and more often than not, they’re from stores that you don’t have near you. That’s where Amazon came in!
All of these items are available on prime, and they’re also extremely affordable because a) it’s Amazon, and b) they’re all sold in bulk! This is a really great way to save money on healthy snacks that are typically on the pricey side. Note: I would never recommend something that I wouldn’t buy myself, so rest assured I have purchased every single one of these items and love them!
While I know these are not THE most healthy things in the entire world, they are significantly better than many other options in a vending machine on your dorm floor, or in your campus bookstore. Most of them are individually packaged too, so they’re super easy to throw in your backpack on your way to the library, class, etc.
These are fairly new to me but they’re packed with protein and the flavors are both AMAZING! Each bag has 10g of protein, which is perfect for an afternoon snack, or to throw in your lunch bag!
Hippeas are Taylor’s absolute FAVE so we always have these on hand at home! They’re a healthy Cheeto and I would argue that I actually like them more than the real deal! They’re made out of chickpea flour and I think they have the best flavor!
I’ve been a Quest chip fan since the day they came out. They taste so similar to their less than protein packed counterparts, but are loaded with 20g of protein, making them the perfect snack to hold you over until you next meal. They contain the most protein of anything on this list, so if that’s what you’re looking for, these are the way to go!
These are a newer to me snack, but I love them! They’re actually dry roasted beans! They have 7 grams of plant based protein and the flavors are AMAZING. My favorite is ranch.
Pop chips are my favorite salty snack. They come in tons of great flavors and they’re so satisfying. I love sticking these in my work lunch bag! Think: healthy ruffles!
I have been hooked on these ever since I tried them at the Natural Products expo last year! They are to DIE for and I feel like no one knows about them! They taste exactly like birthday cake; they even have sprinkles!
I can’t even buy full size bags of this stuff. It is 100% crack. These are the perfect way to satisfy a mid afternoon/late night sweet craving! I will note that I realize these aren’t the healthiest snack ever, but when compared to ice cream and many other late night dorm treats, these are a great option!
If you like frosting you’ll love these vanilla almond butter packets! These are perfect to throw in your bag to eat with an apple or banana, but personally I think they’re just as great straight out of the packet! Buying these in bulk is 100% the most cost effective way to purchase!
If you’ve followed me for any length of time you know these rank in my top 3 favorite bars! Dark chocolate sea salt is phenomenal. Amazon is a super cost efficient way to purchase RX bars!
Cocoa roasted almonds are one of my weaknesses but I have to be careful because I can go overboard easily. These individual packs help so much with portion control. They taste like a little dessert, which doesn’t hurt either!
If you’ve never had this stuff, you’re missing out. It tastes like frosting and can be SO dangerous. I love it by itself, but is probably better served with an apple, banana, or something other than a spoon! It comes in tons of different flavors, but my favorite is salted caramel or birthday cake!
