My June Foodie Penpal was one of my favorites. I was lucky enough go get paired up with my first friends I have made in the “Blogging” world. All by chance!! My package came all the way from California from the lovely blogger Julie. Julie blogs over at A Better Life with Burgers. Her blog is so inspiring and uplifting! Check it out!! Remember when she made a guest appearance with her yummy recipe…
Julie, I can’t thank you enough for the AWESOME package you sent me. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU!!! You ROCK!!
Julie sent me some really fabulous goodies. In my package was 4 larabars (which are my favorite guilt free treat and on the go breakfast), a dark chocolate bar (always a solid choice and way to my heart), and the best surprise was a package of homemade peanut butter granola bars. I wasted NO TIME eating those. I had them as a snack…for breakfast…and just because! Mmmmm! There is just something so special about a homemade treat!
Check it out!
There you have it folks…My June Foodie Penpal reveal…I am sorry I was a little late in posting! Better late than never! Summer has been crazy busy.
Thanks again Julie!!!
And now it’s time for some details about Food Penpals, In case you’re a new reader, here is a reminder of what the program is all about.
Here’s a detailed explanation of the program:
-On the 5th of the 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 can choose 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 Penpals is open to US, Canadian residents & UK 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. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!

- Your full name
- Your email address
- Your blog name/address

- WHETHER YOU ARE A US RESIDENT OR CANADIAN RESIDENT. – this is SUPER important so you get on the right list!
