I know some of you are scratching your head wondering what is this Foodie Penpal thing? It is simple, it’s just like a regular penpal, but instead of writing letters back in forth, you send a care package type box of your favorite food for your foodie pal to enjoy and try. It is an awesome program that I came across over at The Lean Green Bean. I filled out the form and anxiously awaited the day when I got my email containing the name of my foodie pal.
This month, I was blessed with being able to share my foodie package with Amanda Garrett. From the first email I received, I could tell she was a caring, sweet, awesome person. We exchanged several emails throughout the month updating each other on how things were going and letting each other know that we were very excited to send out our packages to each other.
Now for the Reveal:
Here’s what she sent me:
1. Skinny Cow divine filled Chocolates
2. Zone Perfect Greek Yogurt Raspberry Bar
3. Land O Lakes Cocoa- Arctic White & Caramel flavors
4. Justin’s All Natural Almond Butter
5. Fiber One 90 calorie Cinnamon Coffee Cake & Lemon Bar
6. Gnu Foods Fiber Love Soft Baked Fiber Bar
7. Yogi Green Tea & Vanilla Spice Perfect Energy Teas
8. Twinings Chai Tea
9. Traditional Medicinals Nighty Night Caffeine Free Herbal Tea
Thank You so much Amanda Garrett. I can’t wait to try each and every thing that you sent me!
