Foodie Pen Pal: July
Another month gone! I cannot believe it’s almost August. I have so many exciting things coming up! I received a wonderful package from Angie. I was excited because the package was small so as soon as I pulled it out I was curious what was in it!
Man there were some fabulous things! I got pistachios (which are my favorite nut beside almond butter), Angie’s favorite tea, some always handy lara bars, a pretty cloth flower, and some lip balm. The pistachios were definitely a favorite of mine and Matthew’s. They had the most delicious smokey flavor to them. I miss them dearly! Angie did such a good job of giving me foods I was able to eat! Thank you again Angie.
Want to know exactly what Foodie Pen Pals is?
Here’s a detailed explanation of the program:
-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 & UK 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!
