This month, my package arrived from the incredible Maddie, the Mad Health Chick. Check out her blog and her story! She is quite an inspirational young woman.
I was so excited to try out the Bob's Red Mill gluten free pizza crust mix for my Food Revolution Day pizza party! It was a resounding success and I will definitely use it in future parties.
The sesame roasted seaweed looks really cool, and I can't wait to try it. I like things that are different and I'll try anything once! I 've already devoured the ReBar fruit & veggie bar and it was really, really good. I will look for these on my future shopping trips, because they are a great way to get your 5 - 10 in a day, plus they have loads of fibre! I have not yet tried the Go Raw bars but I am intrigued, especially by the spriulina.
Awww, Maddie made such an effort to accomodate my numerous dietary restrictions, and she also obliged my request for dark chocolate. I have the perfect recipe for this bar with blueberries, and can't wait to blog about it! All in all, I loved everything in the package and it really inspired me to try new things. Thanks so much! :)
-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. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!
If you’re interested in participating for June, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions. You will also find contact information on that page for the UK branch of Foodie Penpals if you’re a blogger across the pond!
You must submit your information by June 4th as pairings will be emailed on June 5th!
