August Foodie Penpals Reveal Day

Posted by CheapRunnerMichelle

Hi friends - it's the last (week)day of the we all know what that's time to reveal what I received in my mailbox this past month!

This month for us Canadians ended up being a little different...we were are paired up with 1 person - and we both sent to each other. It was a nice new little twist! It was actually nice to just have one person to co-ordinate  and communicate with...but total bummer - I guess the package I sent to my girl is on it's way back to me...she was away out of town and only got the delivery notice slip yesterday...and by then they were already re-routing it back to me :(   As soon as I get it back I'm going to re-ship it to's just a bummer she hasn't been able to enjoy the goodies I put together for her...


The box Anna sent me had a few of her favourites

- Cosmic Cookies

- Granola made from a local company

- Coconut Chips (a hippie snack)

- Chocolate from Denman Island

I've got a confession...I received the box last week - and have been crazy stupid busy...and have not tried any if the goodies yet...but don't you's all packed to try this weekend at the cottage
Thanks again Anna!!!!! and thanks as always to Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean for hosting.


Wanna know more about Foodie Penpals...check out the info below:

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.

Foodie Penplas is open to US, Canadian & European residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. Same with Europeans.

If you’re from the US or Canada and are interested in participating for September, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.

    what a great package! I haven't done foodie pen pal in a few months but love it! I like the idea of only being paired up with one person. Sounds much easier to coordinate etc. Maybe I'll join back in next month! Have a great weekend!
