July Foodie Pen Pals Reveal Day

It’s finally reveal day!

The Lean Green Bean

After reading about Foodie Pen Pals on several blogs for a while, I decided it was time to join in on the fun myself.

I was selected to send a box of treats to Samantha from Losing My Weight, Gaining My Life, and I received a box from Amanda (no blog).

In the box was:

a picture of the Farmers Market logo where everything came from

peanut butter brownie from a local bakery (and directions to eat it soon. I did.)

pita chips

raspberry jam <—so good

rosemary and sea salt almonds that are so amazing I’ve been rationing them

and a lovely handwritten note!

I loved having someone else pick out some new goodies to try, and they were things or flavors that I wouldn’t normally pick for myself but were delicious. Thanks Amanda!

Go visit Sam to find out what I sent!

And now it’s time for some details about Foodie Pen pals. In case you’ve never heard of it, here’s what the program is all about:

-On the 5th of every month, you will receive your pen pal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your pen pal 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 penal!
-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 Pen pals 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 pen pal 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.
