Foodie Pan Pal

This month I participated in The Food Penpal program - I had a lot of fun not only receiving my package, but also putting one together :) Here's the goods I received from Cheryl. Everything was delicious!

[The caramel corn was the first thing to go - what family doesn't love caramel corn
It was very tasty!]

 [I loved the card too!]

I had never tried Mojo bars before, but I really liked them! I love how easy it is to throw a bar in my purse when I'm heading out the door incase I get hungry. Snapea crisps have been a favorite of mine for awhile and definitely are great for a salty food craving. And everyone has enjoyed having some granola in the morning. It's so fun getting one of these in the mail!

If you're interested you can see what I sent my penpal - Lindsay too!

If you are interested in joining, heres a little information:

-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 treatsThe spending limit is $15The 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 US to Canada and vice versa. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!


  1. Those snap pea crisps look interesting! I'm going to have to find those at the store. ps: I love that your cat is checking out the goodies too!

  2. You got such cool stuff. Nice pic of your cat burglar too.
