It’s that time again! Time to recap all of the goodies I got in this month’s Foodie Penpals box!!!
This month I received my box from Brittany @ Go The Xtra Mile! She is totally adorable and just ran her first half marathon this past weekend!
She hooked me up with a delicious box of treats!
The spread (cat not included):
Let me just say that I tried pretty much everything
within 5 min of opening the box!
I send Justin’s nut butter a lot but had never actually tried it! It was fantastic. And that jam is my new favorite. Strawberry rhubarb? Yes please.
I tried this with my lunch and absolutely fell in love. Not something I would have bought on my own, but the flavor was SO GOOD! I love green tea.
I also munched on some of these veggie chips. They were better than I expected and the hubby actually ended up eating most of the bag. He’s already requested that we buy more.
And finally, I requested that she send me some homemade cookies and she did not disappoint!!! These were SO GOOD!
I love her
And now it’s time for some details about Foodie Penpals. In case you’re a new reader, here’s a reminder of what the program is all about:
-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 March, please send an email to me 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 you get on the right list!
You must submit your information by March 4th as pairings will be emailed on March 5th!
***PLEASE NOTE: if you send an email, you WILL GET A RESPONSE within 48 hours. If you don”t….please re-send your email or contact me via Twitter (@LeanGrnBeanBlog). Last month we had a few emails get lost as spam so we’re trying to avoid that!
