Top finals week snacks

Sweet and salty pretzel noms

There are many variations of the melt-something-on-a-pretzel snack, but it’s by far the best with a peanut butter cup.

Snack crackers

Why would you go through the trouble of making flavored crackers when you could just buy them? Because these are that good! And don’t forget to serve them in fancy little dish as shown here.

Fruits and veggies

They’re good for you and stuff. Plus, your body would probably appreciate the occasional carrot between handfuls of dry cereal and Diet Coke.

Nature Valley Granola Bars

They require no cooking, and they’re delicious. Added bonus: you’ll inadvertently leave a trail of crumbs so your friends can find you in Anschutz after you pass out and almost miss your 7:30 a.m. final.


Another easy snack, and for those of you who don’t scour Pinterest into the wee hours of the morning, did you know that you can make your own healthier version with only popcorn kernels and a brown paper bag?

S'mores treats

First you take the graham. You stick the chocolate on the graham. Then, you roast the ‘mallow. No, not really. They’re just like Rice Krispies treats, but with Golden Grahams.

Dark chocolate

Science says dark chocolate is good for your heart and brain, and science is never wrong.


They’re healthy, but you know those S’mores treats are calling your name. Why even bother with the almonds.

Pyramid Pizza Bonez

Bonez: a delectable ring of dough stuffed with a week’s worth of dairy servings. When you don’t have anything left to give and it’s time to eat your feelings: BONEZ TIME. When a “z” replaces an “s,” you know it’s about to get real.
