I don’t have a Friday Favorites post for you this week, mainly because I didn’t have any time during my work travel week to do any blog reading or web surfing.  However, I am here to share with you my foodie penpal reveal for June.


This month, Jo Anne had me.  She was a newbie to the foodie penpal program, and she did a fabulous job picking out some fun treats for me to enjoy.


So fun!  That almond crunch was gone in about 2.5 seconds.  I enjoyed the KIND bar on the car ride down to Jill’s baby shower this Sunday.  And I’ve really been enjoying the Love Crunch granola in my vanilla Greek yogurts with berries.  The rest I haven’t tried yet, but they include a bag of mixed nuts, two organic lollipops, some raspberry balsamic vinegar (can’t wait to make a homemade salad dressing with that), and a garden dip mix.

I think this bucket is so cute!  I can’t wait to try it.  Also, to see what goodies I sent to Linda, my foodie penpal, read her recap here!

For those interested in what foodie penpals is all about, read on and sign up!

Foodie Penpal

–> On the 5th of the month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email from Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean.  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.

If this sounds fun to you, just CLICK HERE and fill out the form to participate!  Remember anyone can participate whether you are a blogger or not, which is one of my favorite parts of this program. 

Thank you, Jo Anne!  I love my goodies, and I really appreciated the nice balance between healthy and treats.  🙂
