March Foodie Penpal Reveal

I found out about Foodie Penpal from Lori’s blog, Fit n’ Healthy Mama, last month and I had to join up! The concept is simple – you get randomly matched up to one person to send a box to and another person sends you a box. Talk about fun! My FPP who I sent to this month was Mom’s Gotta Run. I sent her a box full of West Coast treats as she lives on the East Coast. I was matched up with We Aren’t Scared Of Sugar for getting a box from. I opened up my goodie box to find:

You know…in all the energy bars I have tried over the years (and I have tried a TON of them) I have seen the Think Thin ones many times and never picked up one. Not sure why either, they are sold in many places!

Homemade Hot Pepper Jelly that her Sister In Law had made:

A jar of Peanut Butter & Co’s The Bees Knees peanut butter. I love their peanut butter but I hadn’t tried the honey one – delicious as the rest!

A recipe for homemade Loaded Oatmeal Cookies – along with a tin of them:

The funny thing was the box of Girl Scout cookies. I rarely buy the cookies and lord knows when I do it is Thin Mints, not Berry Munch – I had never tried that flavor. And? They were about the best tasting Girl Scout cookies I have had! Shocking really. Those disappeared fast…..Thank you for the goodies!

  1. This is such a cool idea. I’m going to poll my vegan foodie friends to see if there’s enough interest to start a ring for us as well. 🙂

    1. Cat, count me in! I might not be 100% vegan by any means but I sure love to buy vegan friendly food and make it (and eat it!).
