This past month I participated in a blogger pen pal program. You can read about it here. Pretty much it’s a fun little exchange of food gifts that helps bloggers connect with each other.
I got my package right before I left for Australia. I was so pumped!
My pen pal is Roberta and she’s awesome. She stalked me, found stuff she knew I’d like and got me all of it for under $15! Super impressive. I only bought three things for my penpal! I’ll have to try harder next time to find the deals. Tsk, tsk.
So I now have a great variety of healthy and ‘green’ products in my pantry: coffee, trail mix, 2 salsa mixes, chili mix (from the Woman’s Bean Project), local goat milk soap, bean seeds, and doggie treats!
Healthy, ‘green’, and something dog related. She knows me so well. 🙂
Once the girls got a whiff of the dog treats, they began dancing around and performing every trick they know (even though I didn’t ask) to try and get it. It was hilarious so you know I have to show you.
Roary went for the more advanced ‘roll over’…
while Olivia tried ‘shake’.
After a couple more excited moves I gave in. They scarfed those babies down in a second.
They thank you, Roberta and I do too! We already dug into the trail mix for our travels and I can’t wait to try everything else!
If you’re interested in any type of food or meeting people I would suggest signing up for Foodie Pen pals. You’re only required to do it for one month, you’ll meet a couple new friends and get tasty presents! It was a lot of fun and I look forward to joining in again soon.
I’m thinking these types of gifts would be good for birthdays! Instead of buying something for someone that you don’t know if they’ll like, why not expand their taste buds and buy varieties of foods that they love! Fun and functional.
Hmm, who’s birthday is coming up next?! 😉
