This month I received an package from Robyn that is best described as chocolate delight!
After our initial contact, Robyn emailed me ..”I definitely stuck to your requests for chocolate, peanut butter and sweet things and focused a bit more on the quality of the products than the quantity.” Boy was she right!
I dug right into a one chocolate covered gummy bear and sampled some toffee too. Spot on Robyn!. Thanks to my 50 day challenge (which is going great by the way) I’ve had to resist my cravings for sweets BIG time.
Overall, this was a great 3rd Foodie PenPals package and I look forward to next months! If you are at all interested in what I sent out, stop on over to Amy’s blog!!
And now it’s time for some details about the Foodie PenPals program. In case you’re a new reader, here’s a reminder of what the program is all about:
-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.
You must submit your information by June 4th as pairings will be emailed on June 5th!
*If you’re from somewhere besides the US, Canada or Europe and want to participate, send me an email and I’ll see if we get enough interest this month!
