Foodie Pen Pals!

Ok so good ol' Instagram is my favorite social media EVER!

I've "met" more bloggers, companies, and people that are actually real on the other side of technology hahaha.

I no longer have a personal Facebook because it's just ridiculous...yes i realize they bought Instagram but it hasn't gone to the dark side...yet :-|

SO! FOODIE PEN PALS! This is by far one of the best things I've been exposed to through Instagram thanks to a fellow follower :-).

You get your match on the 5th of every month
You mail your goods on the 15th of every month which ensures your recipient receives their awesome goodies before the end of the month
You spend limit is $15
You include a little handwritten note and/or recipe
This is literally open, almost, worldwide. Canadians are paired with fellow Canadians and UK residents are paired with UK residents..makes things runs smoother, obviously.
You sign up every month so don't forget!!
This is open to blog readers and you don't have to have a blog to join...JOIN AWAY!!!
Store bought and/or homemade goodies!

This is one of the best exchanges i think. you send to a different than you receive from so networking/creating new friends is endless!!!

ok so...i was paired to send to Lexi in New York! We emailed each other to make sure we were real people hahaha and she sent me her likes, dislikes and if she had any dietary needs. So I tried to think of something local to send to New York...yeah i thought of NADA...ZILCH...BLANK...and then i re-read her likes...peanut butter and chocolate and dessert...DING DING DING DING!!!!

PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE FUDGE! in heart shapes for Valentine's Day!
oh by the way...i'm the moron who didn't take a photo of what i sent :(...blogger fail....I'm a doofus i know

SO ON TO THE NEXT BEST THING!...What i recieved! so here we go...

I LOVE SNAIL MAIL!! I think it's so much more special than an email or when the box came I was SUUUUPER excited!!!

Drum rooooooollllllllllll

HEALTHY PUMPKIN BARS!! SERIOUSLY! I opened the box and it was like smelling childhood christmas! (my mom never made "pumpkin" stuff but the smell was just AMAZING!!)

My partner, Annie from Maryland, sent a little note and included her recipe with the modifications she made to make the healthier I scarfed down about 4 of them while I read it hahaha

 This swap is so fun! I love food and I love snail mail...perfect for me hahaha

seriously get in on this if you think you have the time. you sign up every month so you can do it one month, take a month off, do it again the month after

Check it out here:

The Lean Green Bean

Lindsay does such a great job and seriously check out her blog...makes my tummy grumble every time because her food always looks AMAZING!

Alright back to mean homework ;-)



  1. Pumpkin bars sound delicious! I've got to Google a recipe :)

  2. Facebook bought Instagram? I am so behind. Glad you enjoyed your box this month!
