Foodie Penpals: January 2013
I saw this foodie penpal thing last year but I felt so overwhelmed with life in general I never signed up. This year I decided to give it a go and I'm so glad I did! It's amazing how just a package in the mail can make my day.
This month I received goodies from Bethany.
My box included:
2 boxes of Nips
1 Bag of Pop Chips
1 box of Tea
1 energy drink
1 box of Nature Made Granola Bars
1 3pk of portable Jiff Peanut Butter
The nips are pretty much gone. My hubby helped me gobble those up! The Pop Chips were fantastic. I'll be buying me some more soon. For some reason I'd never tried them before. Maybe because I knew if I did I'd be addicted to them? The rest is in my snack drawer for emergency, I'm starving feed me now moments. Which happens a lot. Unfortunately. At least peanut butter and crunchy granola bars are better than the crap in vending machine at work!
Thank you so much Bethany! I really enjoyed your package=)
Interested in becoming a Foodie Pen-pal? Then check out this info from Lindsey from The Lean Green Bean:
-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 & European residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. Same with Europeans. 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 from the US or Canada and are in participating for November, please CLICK HERE (www.theleangreenbean.com/foodie-penpals/) to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.
You must submit your information by February 4th as pairings will be emailed on February 5th!
