Let’s see what’s in the April 2016 TetherBox!
A peek inside.
A short letter welcomed me to TetherBox, while an info card listed all of the items inside along with a brief description for each one.
240 Sweet S’mores Marshmallows – A sweet treat to help you get through your dreaded finals. This package contains ten little handmade vanilla marshmallow squares topped with mini chocolate chips and graham cracker crumbs.
TetherBox Portable Phone Charger – No one ever wants to see that dreaded “low battery” message, but when you do this handy phone charger can come to your rescue. Just charge it up using your computer or outlet, toss it in your bag, and you’re good to go.
Jackson’s Honest Barbeque Chips – I’ve had these chips before and they’re super tasty. They’re cooked in small batches using coconut oil and have the perfect crunch.
Karmic Nature Lip Balm – According to their website, there are 34 different flavors of this lip balm available. I’m not sure which one I got, but its ingredients include sweet almond oil, coconut oil, beeswax, cocoa butter, and mango butter.
Shark Energy Drink – Our local taco place (Mighty Taco for anyone in the WNY area) used to sell these energy drinks and my husband got them often to “bring out the beast”. Ha. He always made a joke about it so it was fun seeing this familiar can again. Unlike other energy drinks, Shark is made with natural caffeine derived from coffee beans.
Extra Peppermint Gum – This was listed on the info card as a “little something extra” (pun intended?). Everyone likes fresh breath. 😉
TetherBox is definitely a convenient way to send a thoughtful care package to your favorite college student. 🙂 The items were all things a student would appreciate/use, with no boring inclusions like paper clips or index cards. The box could even be enjoyed by a non-student, since nothing in it was all that college-specific. Remember, for a limited time you can get a FREE box when you sign up for a semester or full year! Just use coupon code “GRAD” at checkout. – OR – Get your first box for just $15 (no coupon needed)!
April 2016 TetherBox Review
I would have been really happy to receive a fun box like this while I was away at college. All I remember my mom sending were fruit roll-ups, so something like this would have been much appreciated. 😉
