June Foodie Penpals

I received my June foodie penpals box from Amy who blogs at Sweet Star Cakes!

The Lean Green Bean

I know I have said this before, but this has been the best box yet. Amy really catered to my baking sweet tooth and picked out some great summer items.


I haven’t made these…yet, but lemonade is one of my favorite summer indulgences. I can’t wait to whip up these cookies. I have been staring at the box since it arrived, I just haven’t had a reason to make them yet.


I love twizzlers! I will say I am more of a plain twirler gal, but these were a nice surprise. A little tart and sweet.


Yum, peanut butter. Peanut Butter & Co is my favorite peanut butter brand, and Justin’s is a close second. You can bet that the PB&Co is already opened and the Justin’s is ready for my next trip to Connecticut.


Amy’s sweet letter, an awesome tumbler and some homemade kale chips. Unfortunately they did get crushed in the shipment, but Amy was one step ahead and suggested that I put them on top of a salad. They were delicious!

I also have a problem when it comes to buying tumblers, just ask Nick, so thank you Amy for enabling my habit haha!

Check out what I sent to Jennifer at Peanut Butter and Peppers!


And now its time for some details about Foodie Penpals. In case you’re a new reader, here’s a reminder of what the program is all about:

-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 Penpals 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 July, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.

You must submit your information by July 4th as pairings will be emailed on July 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. Twizzlers are probably my favorite summer food- yes, I consider them a food, a LOW FAT food! But, I'm with you on being an original kind of girl, I'm not sure how I feel about them being filled.
