For those of you that don’t know, Foodie Penpals is an incredibly fun swap that Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean set up and organizes for over 600 participants each month! Each person that signs up every month is matched up with another blogger or participant and is asked to send their penpal “fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written.” Penpals contact each other and find out if they have any dietary restrictions or preferences so the packages can be tailored to their needs and interests.
Buying presents for people is one of my favorite things. Couple that with receiving a fantastic box of goodies, and you’ve got yourself one hell of a good time!
After such a great experience last month with Foodie Penpals, I decided to do it again this month and was fortunate enough to receive a delicious and fun package from Kipp over at “If You Nibble It, Scribble It!“
Kipp did some research and when she learned that Trader Joe’s was moving to my city soon, she decided to send me her favorite goodies from there! I have to admit, I just moved back to this area and had really missed having a TJ’s nearby. I ALWAYS love surprises from this great little store.
She explained in her card that each item was one of her favorites from the store, and man does she have good taste!
Here are a few of the items!
