Hey Guys, guess what today is? Foodie Pen Pal reveal day! I haven’t posted one of these in a while because I have been traveling and finishing school and what not.
The FPP program is hosted by Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean. Here are the deets:
-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 & 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 for November, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.
You must submit your information by March 4th as pairings will be emailed on March 5th
*If you’re from Europe, please CLICK HERE to signup.
For February, Erin sent me an awesome package.
It was very Valentine’s Day themed (AWESOME) and she even had some goodies in there for Layla! The package included home “Love Clusters” which Erin said were made with sunflower seed butter, rolled oats, agave, brown sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin spices and maca root. There was also a Hummingbird Chocolate bar (made in Ottawa!), stir fry sauce (which I still haven’t tasted since we haven’t had stir fry for dinner yet) sour cherry candies (yum yum yum), individually wrapped chocolates, and dog treats.
The package was wonderfully themed for February and I could definitely tell that Erin put a lot of thought and effort into the entire package. Thank you Erin!!!!!!
