July Foodie PenPal

This month I was super excited to have my first ever Foodie PenPal experience.

I’m sure you are probably wondering what the heck is a Foodie PenPal? Well, it’s a program created by Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean, in which bloggers (and non-bloggers) send a food package to someone and receive a food package from someone else. It’s a great way to meet other bloggers and discover new blogs.

This month I received a package from Tina.

Tina is from Newfoundland and sent me some delicious local treats including Bakeapple tea (which I am sipping at as I write this post), two kinds of homemade fudge, and a package of Jam Jams.

I also received a package of SunRype FunBites and a Vega Whole Food Vibrancy Bar. The Fruit Bites were a hit with my daughter and I was actually surprised at how good the Vega Bar was!

And my most favourite part of the who package was the Dark Chocolate Bar…straight from France! I was a little hesitant to try the chocolate bar because I’m not a huge fan of dark chocolate…but it was sooo good…and good for you!

Thanks so much Tina for making my first Foodie PenPal experience such a great one!

      I made a rookie mistake and forgot to take a picture…totally realized after it was all packaged up ready to be sent…oops! Next time for sure!

      I sent an individual package of nut butter, a fruit & veggie bar, a chickpea snack, some David’s tea and some granola ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. What a great idea – maybe someone will start it in Australia too! ๐Ÿ™‚ I can hope!
