Where should you treat yourself after studying?

Every semester, we go into dead week with the same elaborately color-coded study schedules and fridges stocked with healthy snacks. We tell ourselves, “This semester is going to be different.” We tell ourselves we aren’t going to eat only Apple Jacks for the next ten days. We tell ourselves we won’t start binge watching the X-Files until after finals. Yet, here we stand, days before an entire semester of hard work will end as we hand in those final papers, projects and examinations, on the verge of total procrastination and immoral levels of snacking. Whether you’re feeling calm and collected or on the verge of a panic attack, whether you’ve been keeping up all semester or haven’t been to class since January, at the end of the day, everything will work out! Or, it won’t…but regardless, you better be well-fed! So get your butt out of the library and treat yourself to some magical munching. Can’t decide where to go? Take this quiz and we’ll decide for you:
