Five Fall Food Staples for Your Dorm

by Morgan Hughes

Fall is absolutely the best season of the year and one of the very best things about it is all the great foods that come with it! From pumpkin pie to Thanksgiving turkey to literally any soup, you just can’t go wrong when it comes to fall foods. But one problem for students living on college campuses is bringing these classic fall foods into their dorm. We can’t exactly bake a whole pie or cook a turkey for dinner, so what fall food staples can students keep in their dorms?

Cold Apple Cider

This classic and fresh fall beverage is perfect for on-campus living. Sold in pint sizes at Tops Friendly Markets, these delicious drinks are small enough to fit right in your mini-fridge and perfect to bring with you to class.

Halloween Oreos

What screams October (admittedly the best month of fall) better than spooky-themed snacks? Halloween Oreos are a great treat to store in your dorm room for some late-night spooky snack studying.

Hot Chocolate

It’s never too early in the year for a good cup of hot cocoa. Microwaveable hot chocolate mix is a simple and tasty way to enjoy the drink while living on-campus.


Apples, one of the best fruits in season, are a delicious and nutritious way to bring fall food to your dorm room. Whether you take a trip to pick your own or just grab a few from Peregrine, with this Fall snack, you’ll be living appley ever after.

Chai Tea

Nothing’s better at the end of a long fall day than a good cup of chai tea. Chai tea is a simple and flavorful drink that is easy enough to make and has just enough caffeine to keep you focused on homework.
