Solve Your Loofah And Dorito Emergencies With goPuff

Next time you’re ready to shower and you can’t find your loofah, goPuff can bring a pack of three to your doorstep for just $14.95 plus a $1.95 delivery fee. If it’s late-night and you’re craving Cool Ranch Doritos, goPuff is just a click away to deliver them to you.

The 2013 brainchild of two Drexel students, goPuff launched Wednesday in State College and now exists in 13 cities across the United States. The company delivers your selection of more than 3,000 products — and promises the delivery in 30 minutes or less.

It may seem a lot like OrderUp, but goPuff has its own warehouse in State College where the company stocks the products they deliver. This allows the company to make deliveries much faster because it doesn’t need to make a stop. In a press release, goPuff said past customers include Snoop Dogg and players on the Philadelphia 76ers basketball team. You can order vapes and grinders through goPuff, so maybe that’s what Snoop was doing.

You can order online or download the goPuff app for iPhone or Android. As if it couldn’t get any better, goPuff is offering a free pint of Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked or Tonight Dough ice cream with every order within the first month of the company’s service.

If this seems too good to be true, it just might be. Finals week is essentially upon us, so three weeks of the first month will be during winter break. Unless you’re a townie, you might miss out on this seemingly-promising ice cream deal. There will still be loofahs, candy, and pretty much everything else when you get back to State College, though.
