May Foodie Penpal
This month I participated for the first time in Foodie Penpals. Each month you get paired up with someone and you buy $15 worth of goodies and ship them to them and you get a similar package from someone else. It was a ton of fun to buy for someone else and I was so excited when my package came from Becky. I would highly recommend it and will definitely do it again next month!
Check out what I got in my package!
The Bee's Knees Honey Peanut Butter
M&M's Salty & Sweet Snack Mix
Rosa Mexicano Granadilla Sauce
Lindt A Touch of Sea Salt
It was so perfect! I haven't tried everything yet, but I'm excited to. I scarfed down the Sea Salt Chocolate because it mixes two of my favorite foods... chocolate and salt! Bill loved the Sweet & Salty mix... he ripped into it before I even took a picture of everything. I'm excited to try the peanut butter, nutmeg and Granadilla Sauce. On a recent trip to NY for work I checked out Rosa Mexicano and loved it, then the next week I got this sauce in my package from the same place, what a pleasant coincidence! I'm really looking forward to giving it a try!
Thanks Becky for the thoughtful and delicious package!
PS - If you want to see what I bought for Tiffany, you can check out her blog HERE.
Here are the details if you are interested in joining next month!
-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.
If you’re interested in participating for June, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.
You must submit your information by June 4th as pairings will be emailed on June 5th!
*If you're from somewhere besides the US, Canada or Europe and want to participate, send me an email and I'll see if we get enough interest this month!
