June Foodie Pen Pal Reveal

Sometimes I really hate blogger. Tonight is one of those times. You see I had this amazing post for Foodie Pen Pals. I mean it was epic. Yea well blogger disagreed. It decided it wasn't epic enough so it deleted it. Thanks blogger but I think I can decide if my own posts are good enough.

This month I received a package from Monica! I was so excited because she's a Michigander like me! 
I mean seriously how cute is she?! She also sent me some amazing goodies! 

There was so many goodies they all wouldn't fit in my artsy frame I tried to do...

 Skinny Chocolate Cupcake ingredients. I haven't made them yet but they include my favorite things and super easy to make!

Roasted Chick Peas! They had a mexican seasoning on them which was amazing. In fact I'm snacking on them now :)

Mug Cake! And a super cute mug! Super easy and satisfied my chocolate craving super fast!

Pretzel crisps and popcorn! I love these salty snacks and I got a huge bag of popcorn in addition to it!

There was also a jar of homemade peanut butter which was gone in minutes. Seriously, minutes. 

Thank you so much Mon for such an amazing box!! 

And now it’s time for some details about Foodie Penpals.  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 CLICK HERE to 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!
