Will Run For June Foodie Pen Pals!

Hi, from British Columbia!
A box filled with delicious treats on the last week of school.  Life is good (even better now that I'm enjoying my first official day of vacation).  My foodie pen pal this month was Helen Mills from What Happened Next

I absolutely loved everything that Helen included in my box:  handmade card, chocolate hazelnut butter, locally grown and dried pears, nuts and chocolate, on the go snacks, chews for long distance running, kale chips and a spice blend for salsa.  I thought that I might save all of my treats for our upcoming road trip to New Brunswick or at the very least our trip to Oro Medonte for the Spartan run...that lasted about five minutes.  Who can resist dried pears dipped in chocolate hazelnut butter?

Does this come in bulk?  

Locally grown and dried pears

maple, nuts, AND chocolate...I'm in love!

on the go snacks and running 'candy'

some help for quick and easy dinners

kale chips minus the smell of baking kale = awesome

The Lean Green Bean

Here’s a detailed explanation of the program:
-On the 5th of the 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 treatsThe spending limit is $15The 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 can choose 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 Penpals is open to US, Canadian residents & UK 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. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!
