Another foodie pen pal reveal already? Crazy. Thanks, of course, to Lindsay from Lean Green Bean for starting the program! This month, I sent a package to Emily from The Last Corral. I hope you liked everything Emily!
I received a package from Kattreena, who doesn’t have a blog of her own but loves to read them. She was so kind & sent me a wonderful box filled with lots of snack items, which was a request of mine. Yum! I got some Kashi cookies, sea salt cracker chips, two luna bars, Kashi banana nut & chocolate snack bars, and some nut & trail mix.
I shared with Kattreena that I’m always looking for new snack ideas; she did a wonderful job of sparking my imagination! The nut & trail mix was gone so very quickly. The Kashi cookies have ALWAYS been a favorite of mine and I’ve been loving that box after dinner every night. I have yet to try the luna bars, but I can’t wait to do so because they are two new flavors that I haven’t tried yet!
The sea salt crackers were also delicious. They went great with my sandwiches at lunch! And don’t even get me started on the banana & chocolate bars….what could be better? Those were gone in the blink of an eye.
I absolutely loved everything Kattreena! Thank you so much for your generosity!
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.
If you’re interested in participating for May, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.
You must submit your information by May 4th as pairings will be emailed on May 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!
