Happy Friday! Happy Last Day of the Month! Happy Foodie Pen Pals Reveal!
Wait a minute.
Scratch that last one.
There will be no reveal today.
Unfortunately, my Foodie Pen Pal package did not arrive in time for me to post about it.
**But you can go here to check out what I sent Krysty!**
Ah, well, life goes on…
…and rather than let this post go completely to waste, I’ve decided to let you all (and my future Foodie Pen Pals) in on what my Dream Foodie Pen Pal Package would contain. Here goes…
First of all, there would most definitely be nut butters…
…I also LOVE me some trail mix….
…jerky of any kind is amazing…
…and any kind of crunchy, snacky, chippy thing is always a delight.
However, I hope to never receive chocolate…
…cause, call me crazy, but I don’t like those things.
Anywho, regardless of the fact that I did not receive my package on time, Foodie Pen Pals is still an awesome program. Here are the deets in case you’re interested…and you should be…cause it’s cool.
-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 Penpals 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.
