This was my second time participating in the Foodie Penpals swap. This time I was paired with someone from Michigan. I asked for local items and things I could take to work with me. She put together a great package for me with awesome items!
My haul included:
-Michigan Cherries (covered in chocolate)
-Michigan honeycrisp apples (these are very expensive in WA right now so I was so very excited to see them in my box!)
-Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds
-Buddy Fruits Pure Fruit Bites
-Daily's Cocktails Hard Cider (is there anything better than receiving alcohol in the mail?)
I'm excited to heat up the cider tonight to have after dinner. Thanks to Stephanie for such an amazing box! Interested in finding out more about how you can become a foodie penpal? Click the banner at the top of the post!
The neat thing about Foodie Penpals is that the person you send to, and the person you receive from, are two different people. So I received a box from Michigan but got to send one to Texas! My partner this time did not have a blog, so I decided to chronicle what I sent here. He requested "spicy" and "non-organic". Here is what I came up with:
1 bottle Tapatio
1 jar of chili paste
1 hot and spicy ramen bowl
1 tube of wasabi
1 pack of hot tamales
1 pack of crushed chili
I must say the sending and receiving part are both equally fun. Can't wait for November!
