may foodie penpals: reveal day!

Can you believe it's the last day of May?  I'm sad that "birth-month" is almost over :(  But, I'm super happy to share with you my May foodie penpal goodies!  

If you haven't heard of foodie penpals {shame on you}, you should head over to Lindsay's blog, The Lean Green Bean and check out the foodie penpal program...and while you're there, you might as well check out all of her amazing recipes & other fun bloggy "things"!  

Let's get to the good stuff...shall we?!  This month I received treats from Lindsay who is a fellow blog reader :)  She sent me some amazing treats, so let's dig in:

0 (640×480)

  • TJ's Cinnamon Schoolbook Cookies:  Not only were these cinnamon-y & delicious, they were fun to play with {who doesn't love playing with their food every now & then?}!  My 17 month old loved these {educational} cookies, too - a total win-win in my book!
  • Justin's Almond Butter:  Seriously, this stuff is the best, especially for "on-the-go" snacks!
  • Dark Chocolate Speculoos Candy Bar:  Think dark chocolate meets cookie butter...um, total awesomeness! 
  • TJ's PB & J Milk Chocolate Bar:  Holy crap, a PB & J candy bar...does it get much better than this?!
  • Justin's Organic Peanut Butter Cups:  Probably one of my favorite treats ever...there is just something completely amazing about chocolate & peanut butter together :)
  • TJ's Spicy Lime nut mix:  OH.MY.GOSH. this was unbelievably tasty!  I love spicy foods and these did not disappoint!  
  • Smokey Spice Rub:  I haven't had time to try this yet, but it's on my list for this weekend!  Hopefully the weather is nice so I can do some grillin'!
  • TJ's Gluten Free Granola:  I was beyond excited to try this and to my surprise it was better than I had anticipated!  It's crunchy and slightly sweet and has been perfect as a mid-morning snack!  I will definitely be buying this again and again!
  • TJ's bag:  Lindsay was even sweet enough to send a Trader Joe's bag...we use these things all the time!!
A big, HUGE THANK YOU to Lindsay for sending me such a wonderful foodie package!  

Jealous and want to join??  Here's how:

What is the program 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 & get their mailing address & any other information you might need such as allergy 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; the possibilities are endless!

- You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size & 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 & 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 the month.

- Foodie Penpals is open to US & Canadian residents.  Please note, Canadian residents will be paired with other Canadian residents ONLY.  We've determined things might get too slow & backed up if we're trying to send foods through customs across the border from the US to Canada & vice versa. 

If you are interested in participatin
 ​for June
 , please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form & to read the terms & conditions.

You must submit your information by June 4th as pairings will be emailed on June 5th.
