Q: A lot of my friends have gone off to college and I would love to make care packages to send to them.
Do you have any suggestions for semi-healthy mailable treats?

Editor: Libby, we like mailing granola and other breakfast treats. Granola isn't too heavy, and it keeps for a long time if stored properly. It's also a welcome treat for college students dashing off to class at the last minute without breakfast! What about a collection of homemade granola, granola bars, and similar things? Here are a few recipes:
• Recipe: Crunchy Granola Bars
• Watch Out! Dangerously Addictive Olive Oil Granola
• Dried Fig and Nut Bars
• Copycat Recipe: DIY Nutri-Grain Fruit and Nut Bars
Whatever you send, cushion your package with fresh popped popcorn, inside loose plastic bags, for an extra treat.
Readers, any other ideas for Libby?
