April Foodie Penpals

The Lean Green Bean

This is my second time participating in the Foodie Penpals program created by Lindsay from the Lean Green Bean. This month I received a box from a first timer, Liliana, who lives in Ohio. She is not a blogger, but I had a good time e-mailing her. She put together a fun box of her favorites for me, look at all the things she sent me!


 These mini buck-eyes were my favorite, who doesn't love chocolate and peanut butter? I am so addicted, I may have to get her to send them to me on a regular basis ;)


I had never thought about combining chocolate and oatmeal, but that was an oversight on my part, match made in heaven!


I've had Poppycock before, but hadn't tried the apple flavor, reminds me of eating caramel apples.

The chocolate theme continues with cranberry chocolate trail mix and chocolate almond cookies, you can tell this is a girl after my own heart, you can never have too much chocolate!

The funfetti and apple cinnamon pancake mixes are great for fun weekend brunches.


The guacamole mix will come in handy, I adore guacamole and have plenty of avocados thanks to my Avocado of the Month Club from SoCal Avocados.

I sent a box to Rhonda of the Rhoyal Report, check out what I sent her here!

If you are interested in joining the Foodie Penpal program, here is all of the information you need:

-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 May, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.
You must submit your information by May 4th as pairings will be emailed on May 5th!
