June Foodie Pen Pals!

June was my first month participating in the Foodie Pen Pals program created by Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean, and boy was it fun! The way it works is this: sign up on Lindsay's blog and you'll be given the name of a person you'll put together a box of goodies (not to exceed $15) for. Another person will get your name and put together a box for you. Not only did I looooove getting my box of goodies from Dee, I had a complete blast putting a box together for my pen pal, Cassie. I definitely plan on participating next month. It's nice to get to know new people in a way that is so much fun and so unique!

Anyway, as for the goodie box, here's what was inside!

A delicious selection of chocolate flavored Justin's nut butters, which I totally love!

As well as a Justin's almond butter candy bar.

There was a bag of dark chocolate covered Goji berries, a jar of PB2, which I have been dying to try...I just kind of kept forgetting about it. I think I'm going to make a peanut noodle salad for dinner tonight using it in the sauce! Also, a grinder of pink sea salt!

Possibly my favorite items in the box are the two that are from local companies in her area: a bag of yummy looking raw granola and a sun dried tomato and asiago olive oil dip. I love shopping locally and I love trying local things when I travel, so it's a real treat to receive snacks from her area (although if I love them, I'm going to have to have her send me some more)!

I also adored her packing peanuts: a lululemon reusable bag! So cute and creative and environmentally friendly.

I love everything in my box! Thank you, Dee, for such an amazing selection of new goodies! And thank you, Lindsay, for all your work putting together and organizing the program!

If you are interested in participating in June's Foodie Pen Pals, sign up at The Lean Green Bean by the 5th of July and Lindsay will pair you with a pen pal! P.S. You don't have to be a blogger to participate, so if it looks like fun, don't hesitate to sign up!


  1. The Himalayan goji berries look so good. I've seen them but never had 'em before. Let me know what you think when you try it!

  2. I opened those first! They're so good! I recommend them for sure! :)

  3. Aw she sent you PB2 and Justin's packets?? A winner of a pen pal!
