Oh my goodness if you haven't done foodie pen pal you need to jump on the bandwagon!! This was my 2nd month to do this food swap and I am loving it!! Cassie E. sent me a awesome box of goodness! She sent me Cinnamon oatmeal, cocoa almonds (my favorite) a clif bar (had never tried that brand before and it was yummy)! She sent mint hot chocolate and some couscous as well as other items. It was a fun big ole box to open and enjoy! Many thanks to her! If you haven't been to her blog you should run on over and say hi! She is located at.No more sweet treats. com
I sent to Amy over at Laughing with the Stahls. I sent a package of goodies made right here in Oklahoma.
Heres some info about Foodie pen pal
-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 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 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.
- Foodie Penpals is open to US, Canadian residents & UK 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!
