During the month of June, I participated in Lean Green Bean's Foodie Pen Pal program. I've been seeing this all over Twitter for a while now, so I finally decided to sign up. Foodie Pen Pal is a monthly program. You sign up by the 1st of each month. On the 5th of the month, you get your Foodie Pen Pal partner. The person you send a package to is not the same person you recieve a package from. I sent my package to Wanda in Alabama, but I recieved a package from Brittany in New Jersey. You are required to send your package by the 15th of the month. On the last day of the month you can publically share with everyone what you received. You don't have to be on any social media site or have a blog. You just need an e-mail address and a physical address to recieve you package at. You have to send your package by the 15th of the month and it has to include some written item like a recipe or a note. So, let me tell you what I got!
Brittany got me so many yummy goodies:
1. milk chocolate peanut butter pretzels from Trader Joe's
2. cookie butter from Trader Joe's
3. Luna Bars
4. fruit snacks
5. cookies from a local NJ bakery
The pretzels are so delicious and addicting! I love the salty/sweet combination. I haven't tried the cookie butter yet, but I am so glad I recieved it! I actually read about it on someone else's blog when they posted about their Foodie Pen Pal last month. I doubt there was any way Brittany could have seen my comment on that post, so I'm pretty sure she is a mind reader or just an awesome Foodie Pen Pal! I ate the local baked goods immediately, but packed the other goods for my flight to Colorado this month. They were the perfect plane snacks!
If you are interested in joining Foodie Pen Pals for July be sure to sign up today! It is so much fun! I want to continue to participate for as long as possible. I've even started a map - I hope to get a different Foodie Pen Pal from as many different states as possible :o)
