Even though my college days are far behind me, I secretly love College Subscription Boxes. Maybe it’s because they bring back memories, or maybe it’s because they include such fun items. Either way, I love reviewing them. Today we are looking at PelikanBox, a brand new Canadian subscription box for college students. This is their very first box……so exciting!

Subscription Details

When you sign up for a PelikanBox you can choose a male or female box. Other than that, things are pretty straight forward. They offer monthly subscription plans, and ship boxes from September to April each year. Let’s have a look at what we received in the very first box:

Kewaza Energy Balls

Red banana energy ball mixed with dates, chocolate chips and almonds. So tasty and full of the richness of vitamins and fibre. 

Energy snacks are a must for any college box. Perfect for late night study sessions, long days in the library, early mornings, etc. These little bites only contain 4 ingredients. Seriously, only 4! I love it!!

Purple Rooster Socks – Good Luck Socks

These socks are made from an 85% cotton blend with spandex added to give the perfect amount of stretch for your feet. 

Normally I’m not a fan of socks like this, but these ones are actually kind of fun. Rooster socks have huge potential to be ugly, but the purple/black combination definitely makes them a little more stylish. And…..socks are a great idea for college boxes. New socks are always appreciated.

Po0-Pourri Before You Go Toilet Spray

Original Citrus “Spritz the bowl before you go and no one else will know”.

This is hilarious, but I love it. First of all, it smells really, really good. I have been spraying it in the bathroom all day today, just because. And secondly, this is perfect for dorms, shared bathrooms, etc.

Cowboy Crunch – Tasty Sensations

Crisp golden wheat nuggets and freshly roasted and lightly salted cashews and peanuts smothered in velvety milk and white chocolate. 

If there’s one thing I know, it’s that a chocolatey snack is the best motivation for long study sessions. And this chocolatey snack, in particular, is deadly. I had a little taste even, though I’m on a no-sugar diet, and let me tell you, it is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.

April Gold Pencil Case

A small bag perfect for holding pencils or makeup brushes. Keep everything organized and tidy.

Personally, I think every college box should include some sort of office supply item. Whether it be notebooks, pens, highlighters, or in this case a pencil bag.  And the nice thing about this one is the fact that it is a multi-tasker. If you don’t need a pencil-case you can use it for your makeup.

Magnetic Bookmark

These magnetic bookmarks keep your place and always stay exactly where you put them. 

I have received a bookmark from Crafted Van before, but this one is WAY cuter. The Kawaii style coffee cup was a great idea. Who doesn’t love cute little coffee cups. Perfect for keeping your place in text books. I am going to use it in my day planner.

PelikanBox Review September 2016 – Final Thoughts

For a first box I think they are off to a great start! We received snacks, school supplies, and essentials. All the things I like to see in my college subscription boxes. They included a product card, packaged things nicely, and introduced me to some new products – Poo-Pourri…..#awesome. I also really like the idea that they take the summer off. It really makes it feel like school box,  and I don’t know of any other college boxes with the same shipping schedule. In regards to the products specifically, I really like all of them. The snacks are really good, the bookmark is too cute for words, the pencil-case is practical yet stylish, and socks are always appreciated. Definitely looking forward to seeing more from this box.
