I was really excited to see the contents of this months foodie penpals package. My package was sent to me from the Domesticated Academic. In it there was some fig bars, papaya, energy bars, and two things of Justins nut butter. I love everything, but am still trying to figure out the papaya. I spend so much time trying to tear it with my teeth that I forget to taste it. I might have to cut it up before i eat it next.
Some how she must have known that I LOVE Justins nut butters. I love them so much that I like to just squezze the packets straight into my mouth. I grew up hating peanut butter, but I have now found a new love for it. There is some sort of disconnect somewhere and my pictures are not staying in the correct orientation, hence this one being upside down and the next one being sideways. I almost think this is pretty standard in my life though.
These energy bars are amazing. I really wish I could find something like this around here. You would think that in one of the healthiest places in the country it wouldn’t be hard. I have noticed that people are taking the healthy to a whole new level and what I think is healthy no longer is.
Interested in participating with us? Here are some of the dirty details!
-On the 5th of every 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 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. -Foodie Penplas is open to US & 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.
