1. A 40-pack of assorted snacks, bars, and candy perfect for the college student who is constantly on-the-go and in need of a pick-me-up, pronto.

Promising review: "I decided when my son went to college, 2500 miles away, that I would send him the occasional care package. I just don't have the time to put one together and then get it shipped. This box of goodies arrived in no time for my son to enjoy. And he did enjoy! He commented that this assortment of treats/snacks really made his day. I would highly recommend sending this to any college kid in need of a little pick-me-up." —DAN WHITTACRE Price: $21.95

2. A 10-pack of Cadbury chocolate bars to get the person whose tastebuds dream of flavors from across the pond, but are far too busy to take a trip there anytime soon.

Promising review: "Just received several days ahead of estimated delivery which was very nice. All the chocolates/candy are very freshly dated and were protected by the packaging. The box itself was a bit dented but everything inside was perfect. I am very happy with this purchase. Several years ago, I went to a local British store and bought about $40 worth of candy for a British vs. American 'taste-off' for the kids, (we would read a book and then try to eat meals/snacks like the characters for a new experience). This was so much less expensive and I saved myself the two hour round-trip drive. Can't wait to show the kids and remind them of that taste-off picnic!" —dpPrice: $13.79

3. A 36-pack of sour candy that'll have anyone who dares tackle a piece of candy in this amazing box puckering their lips for days.

Promising review: "We bought this kit as a birthday present for a friend. The candies included in the sour kit made all the sour candy lovers flock to the box to take a look inside, and ooh and ahhh. It's been three weeks since our friend/roommate has had it, and he and his wife are still working on it. It's A LOT of candy! For it all to come in this nice and neat package with a cute name rounded out this purchase." —AnneNPrice: $34.99

Amazon

Promising review: "Bought these for Father's Day. Unfortunately, they looked so good that I ate them all beforehand and had to buy another gift. Ironically, it turns out my mom actually bought them for my dad on Father's Day too, so I made the good choice in eating them all." —Nick23

Price: $9.98

5. A 30-pack of protein and granola bars to ensure your loved one is eating a nutritious and protein-filled snack, rather than just munching on crap all day.

Promising review: "Fantastic snack pack. I sent this to my husband overseas and he really appreciated it because it can be hard to get nutritious snacks on base. I would recommend this, and definitely plan on buying again." —Denise NelsonPrice: $22.95

6. A box of assorted chocolate candy that'll basically be like opening a giant Halloween trick-or-treat bag without having to go from house-to-house.

Promising review: "This candy was intended for Halloween trick-or-treaters, but it is soooo good and fresh, we can't resist eating a few now! Yum! There is a nice variety of different candy, and the size is bigger than what one usually gets, so all in all, this was a very good deal!" —Karen L. RomanoPrice: $39.99

7. A 15-pack of Japanese candy and snacks for realizing, yes, Japan does this whole junk food thing way better (and way cuter) than we do here in America.

Promising review: "We just ate this as part of our study on Japan. It was great! Some of the flavors we did not like at all, but that's OK. It's fun to taste all the different flavors, even the yucky ones! We got 16 different kinds of snacks, I think. I didn't count, I'm only going by the photo I have. All but one item was sweet in our selection. It was mostly suitable for kids old enough to eat — my 3-year-old had a blast — but I think he only liked two items! You need to go into this ready to have fun. Also, have a tall glass of water handy! If we do another unit on Japan, we will definitely buy this again!" —BrandiePrice: $30

8. A holiday-themed gift basket to get your loved one into the spirit of the season, which might be especially appreciated if they're a college student who has to take finals before coming home for winter break.

Promising review: "I got this for my mom. She loved it. You might be saying, 'what kind of mother would actually tell her son that she didn't like a gift?' The answer would be mine. I can stand behind the value and quality of this product 100%, co-signed by a Jewish mother. I have since ordered from this company, and have been very happy with the results." —Daniel DeclinePrice: $32.95

9. A fruity candy variety pack that'll make a welcome gift to anyone who loves chewy, fruity candy and (for some weird reason?) doesn't like chocolate (that's an issue for another day).

Promising review: "I loved this mix! I'm not a fan of chocolate, and this awesome mix had a bit of everything. Sweet, sour, gummy, and red licorice gives my entire family plenty of choices! I'll absolutely order again!" —S AliceaPrice: $14.99

10. A 54-pack of Marzipan fruits for not only savoring a sweet, nutty flavor, but marveling at how freaking pretty and real the fruit-shapes look.

Promising review: "As a big marzipan fan, it's sometimes hard to find the good stuff in the U.S. This stuff is great. Not too sweet, not bitter, it's perfect. Very fresh and soft. And the price is great. The box it comes in is a no-frills deal, and I put the candy in a bag to keep for a while, but I will definitely be ordering this item again." —AVTPrice: $27.99

11. A get well soon care package to send to your loved one who might be feeling a bit under the weather, but there are miles separating you two, so you can't be there to comfort them in person.

Promising review: "When my granddaughter sent this to me after I got out of the hospital with total knee replacement, it was the most exciting gift I could have received. Thank you for such a great idea. Because I loved it so much, when my sister fell and broke her hip at Christmas, I knew I had to send her one. She was just as pleased and excited." —Carolyn SmithPrice: $39.99

12. A 25-pack of Korean snacks that'll switch things up from the same, old boring care packages you send with the same, old boring snacks, and open the recipient's tastebuds up to a new culture's snacks, which is v cool.

Promising review: "This was money well spent! I got about 28 things in my box and I liked a lot of the treats. I liked how it wasn't all candy, but a variation of snacks and drinks. I guess the boxes vary from time to time because I got different things than the things in the photo, but overall I loved it! Will definitely buy this box again!" —Demi garibayPrice: $27.99

13. A ramen kit to send your college kiddo who can usually be found eating the crappy $1 ramen from the campus convenience store, but who deserves to upgrade to the really good ramen.

Promising review: "I sent this Hangry Kit as a gift to my ramen-loving boyfriend and he enjoyed it thoroughly. He liked trying the new flavors and tried to make the supply last. He did say that the cooking instructions are in Japanese, but are easy to figure out due to cooking times." —AlyssaPrice: $34.99.

14. A dried fruit mosaic tray that'll taste as yummy as it looks — they can nosh on this by itself, or grab some nuts from the dining hall and make a little DIY trail mix right in the dorm room.

Promising review: "Gave this as a Christmas gift instead of the usual platter from another, way more expensive place. This platter for the cost was just as good and almost half the price. The recipient was happy with it, and the fruits were fresh and just right as far as moisture content goes. Would highly recommend this item." —From OhioPrice: $36.95

15. A 20-pack of snacks and candy from various parts of Asia for transporting tastebuds to (arguably) the most flavorful part of the world, without needing a plane ticket or a passport.

Promising review: "This was by far one of the best Asian snack boxes I have ordered. The snacks were all full-sized, and there was a wide selection of flavors and types of snacks. Many snack boxes focus on sweets and otherwise offer some fish-flavored and tea-flavored savory snacks, (which I dislike), but this box has more than just tea- and lobster-flavored chips, haha! I was surprised at how well-kept the products were and will definitely be ordering from this seller again!" —CeloPrice: $27.99

16. A nostalgic candy package to bring them on a trip back in time in the best possible way — WITH CANDY!

Promising review: "Very impressed!! I bought this for my daughter's 39th birthday, and she had a blast going through the candy and the memories it brought were priceless. I have to admit, her father and I enjoyed it as well. Lots of laughs! Lots of fun! My daughter said that she loved the box and planned to keep it as a keepsake when all the candy is gone. We are still waiting to see if she is going to share — LOL!" —RTPrice: $39.99

17. A box filled with a variety of sausages, cheese, and crackers to change things up from the typical candy and crunchy snacks package — who doesn't wanna receive cheese in the mail?!

Promising review: "I bought this as a birthday gift for my son living down south. We hail from Wisconsin, so having the meats and cheeses be from Wisconsin was something he thought was cool, and reminded him a little bit of home." —Nana SalisburyPrice: $59.99
