October Foodie Penpals

The Lean Green Bean

It's that time again... Reveal day for Foodie Penpals. And I remembered to post with time for you to join for next month! Aren't you proud!? ; )

This month I received a wonderful package from Laurie, who is not a blogger. But I'd like to send a big Thank You to her in case she checks out this post! Laurie sent me a box full of goodies to please my sweet tooth, so I was very happy. : )  Here's what was included:

Isn't the Micky Halloween card adorable? : )  The first of my tasty treats are a bag of Raspberry Milano cookies and some Muddy Buddies Chex Mix. Drooling already...

Next we have a cute box of M&M's and a little pack of nutella with breadsticks. I've actually never had nutella, so I'm excited to try it. : )

Here we have a bag of Planters Snack Mix, some French Vanilla instant coffee mix, and a delicious-smelling Warm Apple Pie candle. It's currently sitting on my desk at work and making my office smell like Autumn.

Last, but certainly not least, we have a pack of Grandma's Peanut Butter cookies, a box of Cracker Jack's (classic!), and a yummy bag of Sour Patch Watermelons. So as you can see, I'm definitely good on the sweets for a while. : )  Thanks again, Laurie!

And here is the info if you'd like to join next month's Foodie Penpals Swap:

-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.

-Foodie Penplas is open to US & Canadian residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. 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.

If you’re interested in participating for November, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.
You must submit your information by November 4th as pairings will be emailed on November 5th!

*If you’re from somewhere besides the US, Canada or Europe and want to participate, send Lindsay an email at and she'll see if there is enough interest this month!
