This month, I joined a group of bloggers and readers who participate in a ‘Foodie Pen Pal’ group. Essentially, each month, Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean collects everyone’s name and matches us up. Rather than 2 people sending treats to each other, Lindsay has it set up so I receive a package from someone but am sending to a different blogger. It’s a fun way to meet new friends and who doesn’t love receiving a package?!
This month, my package came from Krystie at My Tracks and she hooked me UP!
This package rocked – she sent sweet treats (banana nut muffin mix and candy!), Gatorade mix and Vitamin Water, protein bars, oatmeal, dried prunes and green tea with mint. Yum!
I was extremely surprised to find out that I love these little dried prunes. I know, I know – go ahead and make your jokes and prunes but seriously, they are a sweet, gummy piece of goodness.
The other thing I’ve been loving a lot is the Bigelow Green Tea + Mint. I’m a big tea drinker (coffee? not so much) but not a big fan of mint. But I like to give everything in life a fair shot, including mint tea and I was floored. The mint is very subtle but really wakes me up. I think it just may be my new ‘go to’ tea bag.
The next thing I’m looking forward to trying – Banana Muffin Mix! I haven’t been ‘able’ to break into the muffin mix yet because I’ve been limiting my grain consumption (hi, paleo) but I think these will make a great treat for the Super Bowl this weekend.
If you want to join in the fun (blogger or not!) you just need to send Lindsay an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the following info:
- Your full name
- Blog name/address (if applicable)
- Twitter handle (if applicable)
- If you’re in Canada, it’s important that you note that too, so you get paired up with fellow Canadians.
Each month (or as long as you choose to participate), you’ll get matched and send a package, receive a package and then write a cute little post, like this one!
