For the month of May foodie pen pals, Ashley who blogs at The Unintentional Vegan was paired up with me to send over some goodies. Her blog has so many great vegan recipes and product reviews. Whether you are new to vegan lifestyle or not, she makes you feel welcome. You should check her out!
Ashley sent me a friendly note along with some great products.
I had to take a picture as soon as I opened the box. My girls spotted the chocolate cookie and were begging for it! It was so good!! What can I say, we love chocolate. A favorite of mine was the cashews. Im not usually a big fan of cashews, but these won me over. They are seasoned with pomegranate and vanilla.
Ashley also sent me a bag of “crazy bitch tea” from the company she works for. Don’t you just love the name?! I love herbal teas with cinnamon spice. Im a huge tea fan! I love finding new flavors. I am planning on ordering some from their website soon.
Thank you Ashley for everything! I loved it all!
**On a side note, I hope you will come back tomorrow for a very special post. My new page will be revealed for the blog!! There might be something in it for you **
Would you like to be a foodie pen pal? Here’s the info:
-On the 5th of every 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 are 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 Penplas is open to US & Canadian 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!
If you’re interested in participating for June, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions. You will also find contact information on that page for the UK branch of Foodie Penpals if you’re a blogger across the pond!
You must submit your information by June 4th as pairings will be emailed on June 5th!
