From-Mom.com Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*

Recently in an Aloha Friday post that I had, I asked the question “Have you ever received a care package from someone?” Many of you had said that you had only received care packages from doing blog swaps, and some of you had not received any care packages at all.

Let’s face it, people don’t always think of a care package these days – we mostly turn to a simple card that says “We miss you” and leave it at that. But just think about it, wouldn’t you have preferred a care package whenever you were in college? Let’s weigh it out for a second: Card with a few words or a care package filled with goodies? Hmm. I know which one I’m choosing!
I have just the place for you to get your care packages: From-Mom.com!!

A Bit about the Company: We’re very proud to say we are a family owned and operated business. At From Mom.com, we specialize in one thing…care packages for college students. College Care Packages are the only thing we do, which makes us different from other gift baskets companies. Our care packages, designed for college students by college students, include hip specialty snack and beverage items as well as fresh baked cookies. We are the experts on what college kids really want from Mom (or Dad, Grandma…)
Our motto is "NO VENDING MACHINE JUNK FOOD, NO FLUFFY BOWS, JUST AWESOME FOOD!"

Being a college student, I figured that this would be a fantastic thing to try out! Who better to test out college based items than a college student? I received the March MVP package, and let me just tell you – it was packed!! The box that it arrived in was pooching out in the middle due to how much stuff was in the box!! Here’s a list of what came in my March MVP Large Care Package: •6-Fresh Baked Cookies, Chocolate Mint Chip
•1-Brownie, Fudgy Chocolate
•1-Mini Loaf, Marble
•1-Jones Soda, Green Apple
•1-IZZE Fruit Soda, Blackberry
•1-Boylan's Soda, Ginger Ale
•1-Adagio Tea, Silver Needle
•3-Hot Cocoa Instant Drink Mix, Creamy Chocolate
•1-Fastachi Snack Mix, Fiesta
•1-Mom's Snack Mix, Classic
•1-Terra Chips, Original
•1-Milton's Crackers, Multigrain
•1-Jelly Bellys, Smoothie
•1-LGC Dark Chocolate Graham Cracker
•1-Chocolate Traveler, Orange
•1-Dr.McDougal Instant Oatmeal, Peach Raspberry
•1-Sensible Foods, Cherry Berry
•1-LaraBar, Banana
•1-Glee Gum, Bubble Gum
•1-Oral Fixations Mints, Fabulous Fruits
•1-Simply Grand Cheese, Camembert
•1-Jack Links Beef Nuggets
As I said before, it was PACKED! Everything was so delicious! The different drinks were very unique and had a wonderful taste to them. The cookies were amazing; minty – yummy!! From-Mom.com is the ultimate source for college care packages.

From-Mom.com has so many different packages to choose from, you can even BUILD YOUR OWN care package!! Pretty nifty, don’t ya think? Here’s a list of the different types of packages that they offer:
»Mom’s MVP
»Happy Birthday
»Just for Fun
»Thinking of You
»Final Exams
»Healthy Choices

Remember, with Final Exams just around the corner for students, an MVP (or even Final Exam package) are not only full of goodies, but they're also full of value!! :)

From-Mom.com even offers a Group Sales/Fundraising Program! From-Mom.com Care Packages are a great way to raise funds for student and parent organizations such as Alumni Associations, Athletic Teams, Sororities, Fraternities, and Residence Hall Associations.
They make it so easy for your organization to raise money.

  1. I like the Cookies & Milk Care Package! I remember when I was in college and my grandma would send me homemade cookies. she made the best peanut butter cookies! She passed away a couple of years ago, but I will always remember the feeling of getting one of her care packages at school. It was a box of love!
