It’s that time of the month, foodie pen pal reveal day. I’m usually on top of things by writing my post early and then scheduling it. This month I was not as good. Actually I’m sitting down and writing it on our reveal day. Oh, well! It’s been a busy week and I’ve rarely been home long enough to write anything.
This month I sent to Ilona who lives in New Jersey. This is the second time I’ve sent to New Jersey. To see what Ohio goodies I sent to her, visit her blog Ilona’s Kitchen.
Charmaine sent me my box all of the way from California. Here are the goodies she sent to me:
-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 & European residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. Same with Europeans. 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.
You must submit your information by July 4th as pairings will be emailed on July 5th!
