First Ever Foodie Pen Pal Box!

The Lean Green Bean
Last month I was reading Made by Mike and saw his post about Foodie Pen Pals and was immediately intrigued. Who doesn’t love getting mail right? And mail that is also edible and a surprise? I am definitely on board. So I signed up and got my package from Katie over at Katie Moves just the other day. Here’s what I got:
Fun right? She is totally on board with my love of fall and sent me yummy warm drinks and falltime flavors. I brought 2 of the treats to work with me for lunch yesterday and devoured the Ritter Sport Chocolate Covered Shortbread already – yum!
If you want to get in on the fun, here are the details:
-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 October, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.

You must submit your information by October 4th as pairings will be emailed on October 5th!

*If you’re from somewhere besides the US, Canada or Europe and want to participate, send me an email and I’ll see if we get enough interest this month!

  1. Isn’t Foodie Pen Pals so much fun? I’ve only done it once but can’t wait to do it again. Those Justin nut butter packets are amazing, aren’t they?
