This month I received an package from Hilary that is best described as deeelishhh!  Seriously, I knew as soon as I saw that package that I was in for a treat!  I mean come on – look at this box!

am I right?!

Inside I found plenty of goodies.

Fully cooked brown rice, flattened Banana, fruit and veggie bar, gfree sesame bar with date syrup, tea, mints, sea salt potato chips, spicy pumpkin seeds, oatmeal and last but most defiantly not least dark chocolate with whole hazelnuts.

My absolute favorites were the pumpkin seeds, oatmeal, chips and the hazelnut chocolate… duh. You know me..

didn’t take me more then 30 seconds to break into the chocolate…

Seriously, it was so good.  I even shared some with my momma, I had to spread the wealth.

Thank you so much Hilary for such a great package.  I’m totally bummed I won’t be getting another one next month!  I’m jealous of who ever is the lucky pen pal to get her package!


Head over to Rachael’s blog to take a peek into the package I put together for her!


As always, 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.

If you’re interested in participating for July, please fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.

You must submit your information by July 4th as pairings will be emailed on July 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!
