Foodie Pen Pal Reveal: April Edition

It's that time of the month again (that's the first time I've ever said that when it doesn't relate to a particular cycle women get to enjoy lol)!

This month my Foodie Pen Pal package came from a wonderful lady name Jennifer over at Peanut Butter and Peppers!  She managed to pack all of the good inside of this cute Hawaiian bowl, which I loved!


Inside there was...


Seasoned almonds... I seem to get these a lot from Foodie Pen Pals, I wonder if they are all realizing that I love all flavored almonds!!  These two flavors were no different!


Next up was a travel size EVOO and Italian seasoning that she loves so much.  I tried a little on some pasta and like it a lot, I can't wait until we start using the grill a little more, it is going to be fantastic on veggies!


Finally, the package was topped off with desserts!  A chocolate sandwich cookie and biscotti! I absolutely love biscotti, almost as much as I love almonds and coffee :)


Thanks so much for the wonderful box Jennifer!  Be sure to stop over and check out April's blog, who I ironically sent a package to for April FPP!


If you're interested in joining the Foodie Pen Pal Program here’s a detailed explanation of the program:
-On the 5th of the 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 treatsThe spending limit is $15The 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. 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. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!
***If you’re in Europe, please contact Carol Anne from This Is Rock Salt at to get involved!
If you have any questions or want more information about joining get in contact with Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean! If you're ready to sign up, click here to fill out a participation form!
