April Foodie Pen Pals

 April brought me another happy Food Pen Pals experience. I sent a package to Jessica and I had tons of fun shopping for her. Lindsey was my pen pal and she did a great job! I love getting things from different regions in Canada and Lindsey didn't disappoint. She sent me some Welsh Breakfast Tea and Midnight Lavender Tea and some grape seed oil from local shops. She also sent me Inca Fire Salt and Black Beluga Lentils. Plus, Tonka Beans! They're like vanilla beans and I can't wait to bake something with them!
I loved the package and I thought it was really sweet that Lindsey took the time to write about everything she sent on it's very own index card. She explained what they were, why she likes them and gave me some tips for using them. Thank you for a very thoughtful package Lindsey!

 FPP post March Foodie Penpals Reveal Day

  • 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 & European residents.  Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. Same with Europeans. 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.
