This month I decided to participate in Lindsay’s Foodie Pen Pals. Basicially, she assigned you a person to send some goodies to worth about $15.00.
Courtney was assigned to me and I was assigned to Victoria. When I received Courtney's email, she asked me what I liked, what I didn’t like. If I had any allergies, would I be Ok with homemade, real great questions because I had no idea what to expect. I told her I do not like nuts, am staying away from dairy, love chocolate and peanut butter. About a week later, a package came in the mail! I was so excited and it came just at the right time!
I opened the box and started going at it! Almost before I was able to snap a few pictures.
On top was a card letting me know all the items enclosed were made in her town. Wow, what a great idea! I just sent my Penpal some of my favorite holiday treats :)
Inside there was mustard, jam, coffee, peanut-butter chocolate bar, and an almond toffee dark chocolate wafer.
I looked at it unsure what to do because I hate coffee and mustard. I never thought to tell Victoria this! What I did was give it to my mom to try it and tell me how it was, she loved it! I then went into the toffee wafer and was a little hesitant because it said almond on it and dark chocolate ( I do not like dark chocolate). Once i opened it, I couldn't put it down! It was one of the most delicious things I have tasted and really want to email her and ask for more. Next was the peanut butter chocolate bar which was good as well.
I was very happy with her picks and believe she put a lot of effort into it! I loved her theme of items of where she is from.
I can’t wait to tackle next months Foodie Pen Pal!
Have you participated in an exchange like this? What do you think of it?
How do you decide what to send?
And I promise to add pictures once my computer wants to work!
