Foodie Penpals!!

So through the blog of one of my Team Tough Chick teammates, I learned about this fun food exchange called Foodie Penpals! In it, your name is paired with someone and you are given someone else’s name (most likely NOT the same person), and after exchanging important information like allergies, you put together a small box of some of your favorite things and send it to your penpal. And you get a box in return! 🙂

My sending-to-me match was Bethany! 🙂

And here is the fun food she sent me! 🙂

The Just Apples were fantastic! 🙂

The Cheese Bites put cheese nips to shame! Even though I don’t have to be gluten-free, I’ll definitely put those on my shopping list!

The jelly beans are pomegranate and very yummy! I might get some of those to carry on a race sometime!

The things in the little ziplock bag are Bethany’s own creation – olive oil and garlic roasted chick peas. So, so good!! (If you don’t want something homemade, you can let your match know that. But I didn’t mind.)

And the chocolate is to die for!! So yummy!! Another thing to definitely put on my shopping list for an occasional treat!

Your box also includes something handwritten – in my case it was a cute note explaining what the things were.

Thank you Bethany!! I loved all the food!!!

I had a lot of fun putting my box together – Andrea’s a reader, not a blogger, so she may do a guest post on my blog or not. But she got some yummy goodies for sure! 🙂

I’m already signed up for April! Are you interested and want to give it a try?

The Lean Green Bean

Yummy goodness awaits!!

  1. What a great haul! The Cheese Bites look really good, especially if you say they put Cheese Nips to shame. I’ll have to keep an eye out for those!
