This marks my third month of taking part of foodie pen pals. Each month is even more exciting as the last. It’s crazy to be getting all different kinds of things from each package. We are all so different, but our love for food brings us together as friends. I fell in love with everything Kate sent me this month. Get ready for all of the AMAZING abundance of goodies I received from Kate! She’s the sweetest girl!
The first thing I found was a gorgeous spring card from her. She said she looked for healthy items, because I mentioned to her I love finding new health food items. But she also wanted to send me some chocolate. Because how can anyone live without chocolate? I wouldn’t know!
I was so excited to see all of those treats right when I opened the gift bag.
On the day I received everything it was pretty hot outside. The two little chocolates were a little melted. I enjoyed one and put the other in the refrigerator. J I loved trying the raw products she sent. I had been meaning to try them out for a while. My favorite was the raw pumpkin super chips. I definitely need to buy more. Amani loved them too. Another one of my favorites is the Dagoba chai chocolate bar. I’m still enjoying it slowly. You might not believe it, but I still have a few products I have not opened. There was so much!! Each time I try one of the products, I love it much more than the last.
That same weekend I baked the carrot spice scones. They were delicious! It serves a lot more than it says. They are very thick and taste like carrot cake!
Thank you so much Kate! I sent her an e-mail right when I got my package and I told her she’s my new BFF. Another foodie pen pal turned friendship. That has to be my favorite part of this program.
If you would like to make some extra friends and be a part of foodie pen pals:
-On the 5th of the month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal!
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)
-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you can choose to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month.
- Foodie Penpals is open to US, Canadian residents & UK residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We’ve determined things might get too slow and backed up if we’re trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!
