Can you believe it’s the end of March already? This week we’re trading Fitness Friday for our monthly reveal for Foodie Penpals!!
This month, I received my box from Halley @ Blunder Construction! Halley is one of my favorite blends. Her blog is amazing and hilarious, especially when she writes about her cat, the escape artist. I knew she’d hook me up with a good box!
Let’s take a look at what she sent!
Ok, first of all…wrapped in tissue paper?! She puts my boxes to shame. They’re not nearly this pretty!
That couscous is my all-time fav! How did she know?! I found it on clearance one time and now i’m hooked! I’ve never tried that PB but i’ve yet to make a PB I don’t like 🙂 And as for steel cut oats, never had those…but lucky for me, literally the day after my box showed up, Janeetha posted Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oats! Perfection!
See those peanut butter crackers? The girl is allergic to them but still sent them to be because she knew I would love them! And I do! Taste just like the pb sandwich girl scout cookies! The coffee candy is pretty cool. It REALLY tastes like coffe so if you like coffee, you’ll love these little gems. The coffee taste is a little strong for me by itself. But I’m thinking if I smashed them up and used them as a topping on some bars, with some toffee, it would be phenomenal! As for the seaweed snacks…I’m saving those for a day when I’m feeling my bravest 🙂
HUGE thanks to Halley for an amazing Foodie Penpals box! It was the highlight of my week for sure!
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 April, 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 April 4th as pairings will be emailed on April 5th!
**Sidenote: My birthday is April 15th so whoever gets me this month better send me a kick-ass package 😉 KIDDING!!!!!!!!
