August Foodie Pen Pal

Guess what?!

It's that time again. August's Foodie Pen Pal! 


This month's lovely and thoughtful box came from Katie of Wish and Whimsy. Isn't her blog super cute?! You should head over and read some of her posts - they are very thoughtful, well-written, and well put together. Love. 

Anyways, Katie took a lot of time in planning my box, I could tell - she sent me a package filled with easy grab-n-go snacks since I was returning to school and would be on the go most of the time! Here's what was inside: 

Sea Snax
Sweet & Salty MoJo Bar
Odwalla Bar
Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut Butter
Homemade Pot Holder
Cupcake Plunger/Corer/Filler
Squeezeable Apple Sauce
Instant Oatmeal
Philadelphia Cream Cheese Cookbook

Isn't it great? I cannot tell you how long I have been wanting one of those little cupcake coring and filling gadgets, so I got really excited when I saw that. The cookbook will be fun to mess around with, as well. Both of the snack bars and the Sea Snax are already gone, and I'm sure the Justin's nut butter will be gone soon - I love Justin's! I already used the potholder as well. Too cute. 

Thanks so much Katie! I loved everything!



Wanna join the foodie pen pal fun? Here's the details - just email Lindsay to sign up!

-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!
***If you’re in the UK, please contact Carol Anne from This Is Rock Salt at rocksalt@thisisrocksalt.com to get involved! 


Much love,
