Let me tell you about an amazing experience…
FOODIE PENPALS !!
-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 residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. 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.

The moment where I find which persons I’m matched too is always so great! This month again was two great ladies. I was sending a box in British Columbia and was receiving one from Toronto (and I’m from Quebec). I have so much fun to prepare the box I’m sending but when I receive mine, I’m so trilled! I look at the box.. I’m excited to open it but wanna keep a little surprise too.. but finally I open it to each time be very surprised! Awww what an amazing experience. You should all try it at least one time in your life!
Like I previously said, this experience is not only about food, but for me it was also about getting in touch with others and had the chance to meet interesting people.
Don’t be shy, try the experience at least one time!
