All the way from Californ-i-a

I know, cheesy rhyming, but my October Foodie PenPal package was not cheesey, it was delicious. My package came all the way from California courtesy of  Heather at

 Cinnamon Honey Almonds, unexpectedly delicious.Apple Butter from the farmers market (funny because I sent my foodie penpal apple butter this month)

 Also included; honey, beet chips (they barely made it out for the package before I ate them), Smart Food Garlic Tomato Basil Hummus Popped Chips ( I need more, pronto!), and Jingos crackers (which I have never had). 

I really want thank Heather for my package. It will be my last Foodie PenPal package for the year, but I will be back in January!

If you want to join in on the fun, here are the details; 

 -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 to get involved!
