Vanilla-Spice Nuts

For another nutty nibble, skip the chiles and use comforting spices like cinnamon, allspice, and cardamom. The aromatic addition of cinnamon is a stealth source of health benefits, as well: A mere teaspoon of ground cinnamon contains roughly as many antioxidants as half a cup of blueberries to help ward off any colds.

Shipping tip: Mail college care packages early in the week to avoid having them languish in the campus mailroom over a weekend.
