Guess what I got!
A new box for Bond to play in?
No! My February Foodie PenPal Box. This month I was paired up with the wonderful RealFitMama.
There was a great card that her daughter made:
Like she actually made it . She started an eco-friendly greeting card business at her summer camp where they made and sold their greeting cards. Pretty cool.
Inside were a bunch of goodies!
My loot included:
Luna Chocolate Protein Bars – delicious!
Dirty Sweet Potato chips – which made me think of Mike Rowe
Odd connection? Maybe, but he did a Dirty Jobs shoot at Dirty Potato Chips, so there!
Gatorade Propel Water Bottle Packets – helps out with a fruity taste when I’m drinking water alllll day.
Annie’s Mac n Cheese – Parmesan Cheese Flavor. I had this on Friday with some broccoli, yummy!
Schlafly’s Pumpkin Beer – This was so good, I half want to drive/fly to St. Louis to get some more!
Tahini – I’ll have to attempt to make my own hummus again. The first time I tried, I didn’t turn out very well…but maybe this time I’ll be able to remedy it.
I have already tried and loved a lot of my goodies! Thank you so much Real Fit Mama!
If you missed my other Food Penpal Box take a gander.
If you want to participate in the Foodie Penpal greatness (which I recommend you do) here are the rules:
Lindsey at The Lean Green Bean came up with this ingenious idea!
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. 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!
Sound like fun? If you’re interested in participating, please send an email to Lindsay at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following information:
-Your full name
-Your email address
-Your blog name/address
-Your twitter handle (if applicable)
-WHETHER YOU ARE A US RESIDENT OR CANADIAN RESIDENT. – this is SUPER important so she can get you on the right list!
