Jan 2013 Foodie PenPals

Foodie Pen Pal Reveal for January
I LOVE Foodie PenPals -- I had the honor of getting all this awesome stuff from Darlynn at The Little Blog Dress. In all honesty, I've only been able to try the Pineapple chips and gummy bears (totally Paleo right?).

Top left was my Pineapple chips - they were very good and looking forward to getting more. Top Middle was FunkyChunky Popcorn - should be interesting. I'm hit or miss with popcorn, looks REALLY good so I'm crossing my fingers...nice little cheat snack. Top Right were Olives. I don't eat them, but I have a friend who is super pumped to try them.

Middle left - Coco Exposed Passion Fruit + Pineapple. - SUPER stoked to try this! Middle Middle (haha) - some balsamic & olive oil plus a roasted raspberry chipotle sauce(sounds fabulous doesn't it?).  Middle right - Somersaults - I'm interested to see the flavor and texture here.

Bottom left - Wild Garden Hummus to go (can't WAIT to try this!) Bottom Middle - Nutella and candy -- YUM! Bottom Right -Lemmon Mints.

And now it's time for some details about Foodie Penpals.

-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 & European residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. Same with Europeans. 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 from the US or Canada and are in participating for November, please CLICK HERE ( to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.

You must submit your information by February 4th as pairings will be emailed on February 5th!
