May Foodie Pen Pals

Another month of the fun & exciting box of foodie goodies.  This time I was happily surprised with service via UPS direct to my door! Love that!

May's delicious Foodie Pen Pals package arrived from Jen. Her blog is

  • Quaker Banana Nut Bars
  • Pretzel Crips
  • Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce
  • Multi Grain Cheerios
  • Tropical Trail Mix
  • Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • Ground Coffee

We are regular purchasers of the BBQ sauce and Montreal seasoning.  They are both super tasty! The other tasty treats are new to us.  I look forward to trying them this week!

Thank you Jen for the wonderful variety of delicious food & the pretty card! I appreciate it

And now it's time for some details about Foodie Penpals.  In case you’re a new reader, here’s a reminder of what the program is all about:
-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. So, I'm going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!
If you’re interested in participating for April, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions. 
You must submit your information by June 4th as pairings will be emailed on June 5th.
