Foodie Penpal Reveal Day
It is the last day of the month and time for another Foodie Penpal reveal; or, as I like to say, what I got from Santa this month. It always feels like Christmas when my package comes, and I am just like a kid and can’t wait to open it.
Foodie Penpals is hosted by Leslie over at The Lean Green Bean.
This month my package came from Wendy Nielsen. I don’t know if she has a blog, there was not one listed. You do not have to be a blogger to participate in Foodie Penpals.
Wendy sent me some great goodies:
These didn’t last very long. I had to share them with hubby. He insisted.
This tea is very good and will be really great to sip once the weather cools down.
This says Grill Mates, but I like it sprinkled on veggies and eggs. I like to use different herb/spice blends but had not tried this one.
HOMEMADE blueberry jam. It is always wonderful to get something homemade. I am not much of a blueberry person, but this was good. Hubby really appreciates it. He is a blueberry person.
And then there were these! Oh My, I did not even know that there were coconut Oreos. The ones I ate were so good I decided I wanted to use the rest in a dessert, so tune in tomorrow for that post.
Thanks again, Wendy, for a great package. My package went to Sheree Weaks. I am not sure that she has a blog either.
If you would like to join in the fun and get your own Foodie Penpal package each month, here are the details straight from Leslie’s blog. Go here to sign up by the 4th of September.
-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 the 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 in the UK, please contact Carol Anne from This Is Rock Salt at email@example.com to get involved!
