So I decided to sign up for Lindsay’s (The Lean Green Bean) ‘Foodie Pen Pal!” project. and I am so glad I did. A few of my fellow food bloggers had posted their May reveals and peeked my curiosity.
My Pen Pal was Melissa of Melissa’s Cuisine a foodie from Western Michigan. She sent me a few local treats ( I have to say the Apple Crisp Good Life Granola went quickly) and a homemade snack called “Peanut Butter Dippers”.At her local farmers market she also picked up Grand Daddy’s Caramel Corn (so good), Bearboy Gourmet Dixie Rustic Rub and a few flavored honey sticks.
Thanks so much to Lindsay for creating this. I can’t wait to find out who my next pen pal will be!
Details about the Foodie Pen Pal exchange-
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.
& Canadian 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.
