This month I received my box from:

Charmine. She is a Super Mom. She is a woman on the go who loves to stay active and healthy. She lives in California! Oh what I wouldn’t give for a bit of their sunshine and warmth.

Here’s what she sent me.


I love the Annie Chun’s food line, I am a huge fan of their soups and noodles, so I am really excited to try the Seaweed snacks and the ramen noodle packages that Charmine sent. Plus she sent me some fruit leather and I am a huge fan of all fruit leather.

Also included in the box was an assortment of coffee samples, organic nuts from Oregon and some barbecue sauce.  I don’t drink coffee, but I know I can pack these on a trip I have coming up and share with some of my coffee drinking friends.

Now to the Star of the Foodie Pen Pal Box…

Five cans of tuna. I love tuna, I mean I absolutely adore tuna,  and these were packaged from a deep-sea fishing trip Charmine and her family had in San Diego. I am beyond excited to break them open and make a huge pan of homemade tuna noodle casserole. The idea of this being fresh caught tuna that was processed and canned makes this Foodie Pen Pal, ONE Happy Girl.


Thank-you so much Charmine, I love me some tuna, and you sure did stock me up. 

I sent March’s Foodie Box to:

Sydney over at Alternative Vegan. I was so excited to send to Sydney. This is the 1st. Vegan I have been paired up, and I have been doing the Pen Pal exchange for over a year. I love her story on becoming a Vegan. I am not Vegan, but I strive to be more conscious everyday with my choices.

-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treatsThe spending limit is $15The 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 can choose to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received.
