Hey fellow foodies! It’s March Foodie Penpals reveal day! Well technically it was yesterday and I’m a day late but still lol. I took a few months away from FPP and really missed it so I was so glad to be back participating again last month!
I was paired with Julie who sent me a lovely package full of delish treats!
*Lavender Vanilla Sugar – Knowing how much I love to bake, Julie sent me a bottle of Lavender Vanilla Sugar! This may be one of my most favorite things I’ve received in a FPP package so far! It smells like heaven! I haven’t used it yet but I’m in search of the perfect recipe to try it in. A recipe for homemade Lavender Vanilla Marshmallows I saw on Pinterest has been calling my name though! :)
*Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans – As a coffee lover, these could become addicting! So delish! Love them on their own but I’m kinda dying to put them in or on cupcakes!
*Trail Mix – A sweet and spicy blend she bought from a local grocery store. So flavorful and just the perfect amount of spiciness. This was gone way too fast, let me tell you! Was so sad when it was gone lol.
*Justin’s Maple Almond Butter & Chocolate Hazelnut Butter – You just can’t go wrong with these. Always love to have some on hand!
*Homemade Date Balls – Julie made these delish and healthy date balls and gave me the recipe for them! Always a fan of homemade goodies in my FPP packages!
I want to thank Julie for all these yummy goodies! I loved everything! Also a thanks to Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean for putting all this together! Oh and if you want to see the treats I sent to my FPP, Lisa, check out her blog: 3 girls and 1 boy.
If you would like to join in all the foodie fun check out the info below! :)
-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 Penpals is open to US, Canadian & European residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. Same with Europeans. 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.
If you’re from the US or Canada and are in participating, please CLICK HERE (www.theleangreenbean.com/foodie-penpals/) to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.
