Foodie Pen Pals: September

It is that time of the month when it is time to reveal all the amazing things I received in the months Foodie Pen Pal box!  I have been so lucky to get such great FPP partners pretty much every month!  This month my FPP was Sarah.

We had some lovely email chats and then the box arrived!!
It is almost like Christmas morning when I get a FPP (or Naturebox) box in the mail!
I love everything about the box! From the food, to the sweet little notes, to the zebra tissue paper and the stickers she included for the twins I nanny!  So so sweet! (and they LOVED the stickers! )

Nice handwritten note.

Yummy popcorn!  Surprised it made it past the first day we opened it.
Fruit snacks, enough said!  A few of these made their way into my bag for the twins!
This is one of my fav brands of chocolate!

This little fruit sticks are great!!

Thank you again Sarah for your fabulous package!!! Loved every bit of it!!!

If you want to get involved with the Foodie Pen Pals 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 & European 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 rocksalt@thisisrocksalt.com to get involved!

If you would like to be a part of this amazing program you can sign up HERE by Saturday, October 4th.

Have a healthy day!
