I’m finally back in the game for Foodie Penpals! It’s been months since I was able to participate in the penpal program, but I’m excited to reveal this month’s package!
First a little info about this fun Penpal program:
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 & European 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!
This month I was paired up with Megan from The Lyons Share Wellness! I was really excited when I opened her package!
She sent me lots of goodies including:
–Justin’s Nut Butter…….I had never tried these, and now I need to find a way to get my hands on more! So good!
–Peeled Snacks dried apple slices
–Near East Whole Grain Couscous……Easy to make in the microwave after work!
-Veggie Wash Spray…….Very convenient!
Thank you, Megan, for another great month of Foodie Penpals! I loved everything in this month’s package!
