Foodie Pen Pal Reveal!

As I mentioned at the beginning of the month, I signed up for a fun thing called the Foodie Pen Pal. The Foodie Pen Pal is a little program I guess you would call it, where bloggers and blog readers can swap their favorite foods across the country! What ends up happening is you shoot your information over to Lindsay at the Lean Green Bean Blog, should definitely check it out, and she matches you up with someone else across the country, You then have ten days to go to your local farmers markets, little shops and anywhere else unique to your area and ship it to your foodie pen pal! FUN! In return, you were assigned to someone else, and they send you a package from their area.

This actually stuck out to me as a great and fun idea because I LOVE to try new things and who knows what will get sent to you, and from where?!

I received a SNACK ATTACK from North Carolina!


I received:

Chocolate Chip Cliff Bar

Barbara’s High Fiber Chews

Cherrie Pie Larabar

Buddy Fruit Chews

Dark Chocolate Dreams

Buddy Fruits Juice

Nature Box Granola

Perfectly Simple ZONE Bar

Planter’s Nuts

Orville’s Popcorn

It really was a snack attack! I actually hadn’t tried any of these snacks and was really excited to give them a go! The Buddy Fruits were some of my favorites. You can really taste all of the fruit in there without all the crazy added sugar.

Just to give you an idea, here are a few things that I threw into my Foodie Pen Pal box that went off to MN!

If you want to give it a go, just go to the Lean Green Bean and sign up! There’s no cost or commitment, just fun! If you want to check out what other people got, you can look at the links to their blogs here.

AND, if you are a food blogger, there is a holiday cookie swap going on as well! I am signed up for this guy so we will see how that one goes! πŸ™‚

Last little update, as I have mentioned in a few other posts lately, I have a fun little game for everyone to play starting tomorrow. Let’s just go ahead and call it SIZZLE WARS! Get your competitive juices flowing because it’s going to get spicy in here!

Do you participate in any fun food swaps?? Cookie Swaps?? Or anything else?!

      DO it! The cookie swap is 4 dollars to sign up for, but it all goes to charity. You just need to sign up before the 4th I believe! I know people that have done it last year and they are going back for more so it’s got to be good.

      You will kill it with your cookie recipes anyways!

    Buddy Fruits are my go to! I am so glad you loved them πŸ™‚ I have grown to love the texture and taste of the new Zone bar- AND the fact it is more like a Lara bar with protein added in.

      LOVED THEM! They have much more of an authentic fruit taste in comparison to others! I am a big fan of the nut basedor granola based bars. They don’t tend to sit in my stomach so heavy but anything with some added protein in I’m game for!
