Happy Friday all! Thanks for putting up with my excessive excitement yesterday, as you're reading this I am city hopping on planes while traveling to Virginia Beach for the weekend.

Anyways, today's agenda here in my little corner of the world is Foodie Penpals! I have been reading people's reveal posts each month, and thinking....I need to try that! So this was my first month, and I was really excited to be getting a package from Nicole.

Nicole was sure to ask the things I liked, don't like and what I am looking for. I told her I have a busy schedule so quick and easy things are important to me. She did an awesome job sending me new things to try that are great for my "on the go" lifestyle.

These snacks were great, loved the mixture of crunchy with sweet! I already found a few places I can get these locally as well!
I love soup for lunch at work so this was perfect! Soup packets, all you have to do is add the water and it had lots of flavor compared to some other packet soups.
These were probably my favorite, which was good because she sent 2 packs. They are so simple, only a few ingredients but a great salty snack to munch on. They taste just like the crispy things you get at Asian restaurants... please tell me you know what I am talking about?

Nicole was also sweet enough to send me a recipe for a "Cherry Cake", I haven't had a chance to make it yet but I will let you all know how it goes when I get a chance!

You can also check out the items I sent to Lindsay over at Lean Green Bean.

I really liked this whole experience, I got to try some new things as well as get a chance to chat with some new people.  I highly recommend trying it out!

It's not too late to join for the next month! Head over to Lindsay's page and sign up, it's a fun new experience and definitely helps you stop outside the box with your food :) It's so easy too, you get paired with someone to send a box of goodies to and someone sends you one- wait for the package, enjoy, and then write a post about it at the end of the month!

What did you get from your Foodie Penpal this month?

Have you ever tried any of these items?


  1. I've never tried any of those items, or foodie pen pals, but I love reading people's recaps of it (I guess I should try it one day?). Those crunchy snacks look really good!

    Have fun in Va. Beach. I have quite a few friend who will be there for the half this weekend!

  2. I'm glad you loved your first foodie pen pal gift and it's awesome you got Lindsay as your first person lol!

  3. This is such a good idea! I've never even heard of any of these items. I'll have to check this out.
