September Foodie Pen Pal Reveal!

This was a fun month for Foodie Pen Pals! I sent Ashley in VA of Your Girl for All Seasonings a box and I received a WONDERFUL package from Emma in PA!

The package was decorated beautifully and I loved every bit of it. She sent a muffin from the camp/resort she works at. It was delicious, and perfect timing as I had an early drive the next morning, so I could take it with me on the road! She also sent along some delicious granola and the recipe, which I have been enjoying with my yogurt and some fresh raspberries in the morning, SO GOOD! My favorite though has to be these wonderful chocolate mints made especially for Skytop by Callie's Candy Kitchen. Oh my goodness, these are SO delectable! I have kind of been hoarding them as I can imagine putting a couple out for friends after a dinner party, they are SO delicious! These are the kinds of mints my sister absolutely love, I might have to share a couple of them with her when I see her next. Thank you so much Emma, I loved everything!

Are you interested in becoming a Foodie Pen Pal? More info below!

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