I have been a part of the Foodie Penpal for one year as of this month. It has been a great experience for me with only two broken items and many new favorite treats!
This month, my box was from Pennsylvania and filled with a wonderful selection.
NatureBox.com, a company that for a nominal fee you receive a box of goodies each month. I appreciate her sharing this goodie with me. Now I just have to find soft-baked granola somewhere before I run out!
I cannot begin to tell you how many new items I have been able to try and of those items, how many new favorites I have in my life. I plan to continue being a part of this progra.
you want to join the fun of the Foodie Penpal program, here are all the details.
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!
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.
