2. Milk cartons

If you have a Keurig like me or like milk in your cereal, the milk cartons are the best thing to pick up. Instead of spending your dining dollars or cash at the 3rd Street Market for a half-gallon of milk, pick up four cartons for one swipe. It should last you most of the week and saves extra cash you don’t have to spend.


3. Yogurt

Candy is by far one of the best things offered at On The Go, but it is not the healthiest. This choice will most definitely assist the Freshmen 15, but it is worth it. On The Go has M&Ms, Reese’s, Twix, Milk Way and much more. These delicious candies will get you through late night study session, but who doesn’t love dessert on any night.


8. Pop Tarts
