Foodie Pen-Pals: October October 30, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — yep, i ate that @ 8:11 pm

This month for foodie pen-pals I was matched with Abby from Abz ‘n’ Oats


(I could not get a non-blurry photo of the group)


Pumpkin Spice Trail Mix.. The Pecans in this are Aaah-mazing. I might have eaten all of them I could find from the top of the bag before stopping to take a pic





Coffee.. Abby said she picked it out because of the label saying it has chocolate notes, maybe I put too much milk into my coffee but this really didn’t taste any different than what I normally buy (the Archer Farms Morning Blend)


M&Ms.. “Because everyone needs some chocolate”-Abby. Saving these for Taylor, she loves her some M&Ms


Lara Bars.. I’ve never tried the PBJ flavor, but Abby said it’s her favorite, I took these to work to have for emergency snackage but haven’t eaten them yet..



 ZICO chocolate flavored coconut water.. Abby wrote that this stuff tasted just like chocolate milk.. and it totally does! I had about half of the bottle after a run last week and the other half after the gym the next day.



Abby sent some excellent fall themed snacks!! To see what I sent this month, go check out Alicia’s blog at AliGirl Cooks.

And now it’s time for some details about Foodie Penpals.  In case you’re a new reader, here’s a reminder of what the program is all about:

-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. *US Residents only please at this time- hopefully we can expand soon!*

If you’re interested in participating for November, please send me an email at and include the following information:
-Your full name
-Your email address
-Your blog name/address
-Your twitter handle (if applicable)

I will need to hear from you by November 4th as pairings will be emailed on November 5th!

    That trail mix looks amazing! I’ve seen that chocolate coconut water- I may have to try it now that I know it’s good!

    I am super jealous of the trail mix, I have had it every year except this one! I remembered too late and they were sold out at my Target. Looking forward to reading more of your blog 🙂
