Fun Fact about  the Foodie Pen Pal Program: OVER 1000 bloggers and reader participate in the exchange…

This month I received my box from: Meg at Meg Vs Chub. I also received my January box from Meghan. I don’t think that this happens very often, because there are so many participants in the Foodie Pen Pal Exchange, and since people are randomly paired together. I thought it was really cool and since I loved my January Foodie Pen Pal Box I looked at it as another opportunity to get to know Meghan that much more….If you read January’s post then you know that I love her tag line: Screw You Chub, Get Outta My Way. It’s just such a strong and bold tagline. She also makes the BEST card to send with the Foodie Box.

So this months card looks like this. This is the back of the card.


The front of the card.  So cute and is truly how I feel about food.


So on to the Revel. Check out my box of Awesomeness.  It has such a wonderful variety, and with new things I have never tried before, I really love that.


She also sent my babies a treat. Boy did they love that. These are homemade treats and my “kids” went nutz for them. Stuart was licking the bag! Ginger was patiently waiting her turn.

Meghan, my little “kids” LOVE you for thinking of them, and thank-you for the yummy treats. They felt really special getting a treat in the Foodie Box!

Now back to what I received.


I am really excited to try the PB&J bar from Trader Joe’s. Plus this fun Greek Yogurt Granola Bar.

I just cannot get over how excited I am about breaking into all my goodies.

Snapea Crisps, Yes Please….


Thanks Meghan! I really enjoyed spending the last two months with you as my Foodie Pen Pal. You’re a real sweetheart and I love your choices in food and snacks. I also wanted to Congratulate Meg on her weight loss success. On her blog she posted a Progress Picture and her weight loss to date. Amazing Progress Meg. You really accomplished so much and I find it so inspiring how you changed your health and your life.

I sent February’s Foodie Box to Tracie who is a reader of  Foodie Blogs. I had a good time getting to know her via email. She has 2 little kids ages 11 and 6. She also has 6 dogs and 3 cats. She loves fitness and good food. Sounds like she is getting ready to start her own blog sometime this year, and I for one cannot wait until she does! I’m also hoping she will Guest Post for me and share her love of travel, food and her family.

-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 can choose to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received.
