I Heart Foodie Pen Pals!

The Lean Green Bean

I participated in Foodie Pen Pals again this month.  It's really fun waiting to see what surprises you'll get. :)  Before I show you the awesome goodies I got, let me tell you a bit about the Foodie Pen Pals 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!
Click on the button at the top of the post if you'd like to sign up!

My partner was Bec from Bec Gets Healthy. She was super cool and asked me some great questions about my preferences and food memories, etc. I LOVED everything that I received, so a HUGE thank you to Bec! :)

Here's my loot:

I'm so excited to try all of these great goodies, I do love anything maple-flavored. The cookie buttons are amazing! And I'm particularly intrigued to try the maple cotton candy, yum!! Thanks again, Bec!



  1. Maple = greatness! This is an awesome idea and definitely gets you to try items that aren't typically found in a certain area!

  2. Maple cotton candy definitely sounds interesting! I love this idea and just signed up for next month! Thanks for posting this.

  3. This is awesome! I LOVE your box? How do I find foodie pen pals so I can participate?


  4. I love when your Pen Pal puts a lot of thought into what they are sending you. :) Looks like you got some yummy goodies!
