What’s a foodie pen pal you ask? Well, every month bloggers can sign up to participate and will be paired with another blogger. Then bloggers send each other a box of yummy treats that cost about $15! The Foodie Pen Pal program was developed by Lindsay at the Lean Green Bean. Visit her blog for details and to sign up. It’s super fun!
What I got: a wonderful card from Krysty, Bobo’s cinnamon raisin oat bar, two Alter Ego miniature chocolate bars, an organic 365 very berry fruit strip, lemon thyme shortbread cookies, fig spread, and a bonus gift!
One of my favorite things from Krysty was this package of lemon thyme shortbread! Unlike most heavy shortbread, these were light and the lemon gave it a very refreshing taste! And to top it all off, these were a local item for Krysty being made in St. Paul, MN!
I also got a jar of Organic Adriatic Fig Spread. This stuff is amazing! It nice and firm and bursting with flavor. I spread it on Spanish Manchego cheese and it was to die for! I can’t wait to make my own fig newtons!
Krysty also sent me a super awesome sparkly purple headband! What I loved about this headband, apart from the color, was how tight it fit on my head. I went on a two hour hike and it didn’t budge! Thanks, Krysty!!
