When it comes that time again to send out Foodie Pen Pal packages, I seriously cannot wait to get my mail that week. It’s like a kid at Christmas time. This month I was paired with Rachael, the blogger at Ready to Get Sweaty and she sent me an amazing package! I sent a package to Lyndsa, the blogger at Thinspiration.
Rachael sent me an adorable package filled with plenty of tasty, yet mostly healthy snacks. I had indicated to Rachael that I was on the look-out for healthy snacks since I am constantly on the go and she created “Michelle’s Snack Bag” for me!
Isn’t her hand-written note adorable?
Beneath the note was this wonderful package:
The reusable bag is perfect for packing a lunch or snacks!
Inside I found, plenty of awesome treats:
My package included: Boston Cookies (a local item) in Chocolate Chip, a Cliff Kid’s bar, a Luna Bar, 100 calorie popcorn, Zico coconut water, Justin’s Peanut Butter, Justin’s Almond Butter, a Whole Foods 365 Cherry Fruit Strip, Barbara’s Snackimals and Crispy Green Dried Asian Pears.
My package also included, this: Simply Salsa Mix…the mix smelt great and tasted even better when I made it!
Thank you Rachael for an awesome package!!
Are you a foodie penpal? If not, I highly suggest giving it a try. You’ll quickly become addicted and meet some awesome blogger along the way.
Here are some details: (Click on the Foodie Penpal icon above to sign up!
-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!
