10 Food Choices Mississippi College Students Typically Choose From

Most college students love to go get something to eat with friends, especially really late at night.

10 Food Choices Mississippi  College Students Typically Choose From

Do you wonder where college students go for either a late night snack or just to go get food during the day sometimes? Well, here is a list of where most Mississippi College goes here in and around Clinton, MS. Whenever I go to get something to eat, which is not often, I try to get the cheapest thing if possible that is on the menu, because why not, I am a broke college student! Here are some places to eat at whenever you are hungry or want a snack.

1. Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A offers mostly chicken, (if you did not know that) but most people prefer to go there, especially when there is a group of people hanging out together because there are a lot of options on the menu. Also, just being honest, most people love Chick-fil-A, so most of the time it is a no brainer where to go to eat. The only bad thing is that they close at 10pm. If you want a late night snack or meal, you will not be able to go there! My favorite item on the menu would be the chicken sandwich!

2. Starbucks[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F04%2F23%2F636285203458352947-1142112607_636285203451165381-1729495225_Starbucks%2520Macchiota%2520%282%29.JPG&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=607&h=8fc1a6025069a529e7b9d43b1b4e15d23e136ff5ad3a8fbd131ff939a4523b6e&size=980x&c=920069408 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F04%252F23%252F636285203458352947-1142112607_636285203451165381-1729495225_Starbucks%252520Macchiota%252520%25282%2529.JPG%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D607%26h%3D8fc1a6025069a529e7b9d43b1b4e15d23e136ff5ad3a8fbd131ff939a4523b6e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D920069408%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

I feel like Starbucks should not even be on the list since the majority of college students love coffee. I am one of those people who like the espresso part of coffee, but I will not drink just plain coffee. Most people like to drink coffee to keep them awake during the day and especially at night. It just depends on how the day is going, whether or not I will get a drink from Starbucks or not. Luckily, my college campus has a coffee shop that you can use your college meal points on. My favorite coffee drink is the Caramel Macchiato. The only bad thing about Starbucks is that they close at 10pm at night, but who would want coffee at 10 o'clock at night anyway?

3. Sonic[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F04%2F23%2F636285204333799732-782235974_636285204327700326-1056853499_Sonic%2520%282%29.JPG&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=49&h=79b967694b6b10f2df336cdea97f069ce7814eedeff8b126998ec5729a8d52e8&size=980x&c=2171979267 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F04%252F23%252F636285204333799732-782235974_636285204327700326-1056853499_Sonic%252520%25282%2529.JPG%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D49%26h%3D79b967694b6b10f2df336cdea97f069ce7814eedeff8b126998ec5729a8d52e8%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2171979267%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

Sonic has a lot of various options on the menu. You can get a hamburger, popcorn chicken, slushies, different ice cream treats, and simple fried snacks. The one thing that draws a lot of college students, is that they have their milkshakes half off after 8pm! So, if you want something sweet after 8pm, Sonic is the place to go! That is my personal favorite time to go because of the discount! They also have the half off slushies in the afternoon, but I never have time to go to Sonic in the afternoon! I am also a big fan of Sonic's mozzarella sticks and their fried pickles! Sonic is open 24/7, so you can go anytime you would like to!

4. Taco Bell

I, personally, do not like going to Taco Bell really late at night, but several of my friends go there all of the time. Taco Bell is cheap, though! I usually get the Chicken and Cheese Quesadilla when I go there. Taco Bell is open 24/7, so that is another reason why a lot of people like to go there in the middle of the night. Also, most of the restaurants in Clinton, MS are closed late at night, so that is one of the options to go to.

5. Whataburger

I have only eaten at Whataburger once in my lifetime and that was when I was in middle school! I have not had a chance to eat at Whataburger while I have been in college. Where I am from we do not have this chain of restaurant, so it is different for me. The closest one is in Jackson, MS, which is around 30 minutes or less from college. Most students like to go around midnight to buy the Whataburger's Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit's. From my friend's reviews, those honey butter chicken biscuits are really good! I have been wanting to go and try one, but just have not had a chance to go get one, but I would not want to get one at midnight, anyway. Whataburger is open 24/7, so this gives another place to chill and relax with friends after a long day of classes!

6. Raising Cane's[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F04%2F23%2F636285206174202352-1096450764_636285206166972550392282378_Raising%2520Cane%2527s%2520%282%29.JPG&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=375&h=b50e0745c4596d5da236e630f858227e2bad612ff3ca3a4bd83bf5e3416c47bc&size=980x&c=492844431 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F04%252F23%252F636285206174202352-1096450764_636285206166972550392282378_Raising%252520Cane%252527s%252520%25282%2529.JPG%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D375%26h%3Db50e0745c4596d5da236e630f858227e2bad612ff3ca3a4bd83bf5e3416c47bc%26size%3D980x%26c%3D492844431%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

When I first moved to MC, everyone was talking about eating Raising Cane's and pretty much going nuts over it when they talked about it. I had never heard about this restaurant, because we do not have one where I am from. Everyone told me that is was like Zaxby's but better. I finally went to the restaurant before school started after Spring Break and ate with a group of friends from church and I liked it! I have eaten another time there, and I understand why everyone likes it. The prices are fairly decent, so that is good.

7. McAlister's

Most people just go to McAlister's because of their sweet tea. I have eaten there a couple of times when my parents have come down to visit me and it was good! I know several of my friends make a special trip to just go to McAlister's for their famous sweet tea. Their tea is pretty good and cheap!

8. Little Caesars

If you want a pizza for an occasion or to hangout with friends, most people get it from Little Caesars, because they have their five dollar hot and ready pizza's. Who could beat that? Their pizza's are really good, anyway, so it is a win for win deal! Some people also order pizza from Domino's and they have it delivered on campus, but Domino's is not cheap most of the time!

9. Soup and Mac & Cheese

It is always handy to have a couple of cans or containers of soup, because you never know when you will be sick or when you do not want to leave your dorm to go get food in the Cafeteria! It is also nice to have macaroni and cheese in handy. The kind of mac and cheese where you just have to add water and put it in the microwave. Ramen Noodles are good to have on hand in your dorm room as well. These are cheap and the grocery stores usually have all these items on sale.

10. Candy[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F04%2F23%2F636285207878117035-403004916_636285207791359020-330246773_Hershey%2520Kisses.JPG&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=283&h=cf9310eb3903fd835a2b506189b54483d06d09d9a3794254a33446ef9c9f8aa1&size=980x&c=3510811751 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F04%252F23%252F636285207878117035-403004916_636285207791359020-330246773_Hershey%252520Kisses.JPG%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D283%26h%3Dcf9310eb3903fd835a2b506189b54483d06d09d9a3794254a33446ef9c9f8aa1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3510811751%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

Candy is good to have on hand when you have a craving for something sweet and you do not want to go to a fast food place to buy something. It is always good to have for when you are studying or doing homework. My personal favorite candy is Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. It is also nice to have other snacks on hand in your dorm room, because you never know what mood you will be in when you want a snack!
