Foodie Pen Pals! Sweet Treats Once a Month!

Embarking on the blogging path has led me to discover a Foodie Pen Pal Club.   I'm a newbie to the club & was happily connected to 2 lovely people; the person who I get to shop for & the person who is shopping for me.  I received a thoughtful letter and an amazing box of goodies from Cindi Wilding of California, a Certified Life Cycle Celebrant.  Please visit her at  http://cindiewilding.typepad.com/

Here's the tasty box of treats that arrived just for me (ok I reluctantly shared the last few bites of the toffee with my daughter & we were both yearning for more).

  • Stacy's Cocoa Pita Chips
  • Sahale Almonds (Love these!)
  • Crostini Rosemary Toasts
  • Lula's California Toffee (must have more!) 
  • Sun Drops Caramel Cups. 

   A big thanks to Cindi for spoiling me this month!  All the goodies were delicious .

Are you interested in joining?  Our amazing hostess is Lindsey and she can be found at http://www.theleangreenbean.com/

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. *US Residents only please at this time- hopefully we can expand soon!*
