Today is the last day of August, which means Foodie Pen Pal reveal day!
What’s a Foodie Pen Pal? Well, it’s a program set up by Jen over at the Lean Green Bean and here’s how it works…
-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.
If you’re interested in participating for September, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.
You must submit your information by September 4th as pairings will be emailed on September 5th!
This month I received an awesome box from Veronique.
Wondering what’s inside?
– organic chocolate cookies
– roasted edamame
– apple peach chips
– Luna bar
– a citrus peeler
But, my most favourite goodie of all was the Homemade Cheddar, Cashew and Sea Salt Kale Chips…OMG, they were so friggen delicious!
Unfortunately Veronique did not send the recipe, but I’m definitely going to try my hand at them this weekend. I have a ton of kale in the fridge waiting to be cooked up!
