I sit here staring at the clock…11:12 pm. Its literally 48 minutes until midnight. 48 minutes until Friday. 48 minutes until May 30, 2014! 48 minutes until this post has to be published! Leave it to me to be late! My foodie pal was even early sending his box. Of course I was a little late.
This month I was paired with Kyle from PA. I received a nice arrangement of yummies. For a young buck he did quite well. I was super excited to try everything he had sent. And believe me it was perfect and delish.
I had to smile when I glanced over everything and saw the Speculoos Cookie stuff. First thought that came to my mind was Biscoff! Yes Biscoff, the pleasurable tasty treat I devoured a few months back. I sent some to Kyle 🙂 Speculoos just wasnt the same. I was expecting a completely different taste. When I put the cookie in my mouth I was thinking about Biscoff. I was like ugg.. But then once I got the thought out of my head I was good. It was good. It tasted similar to graham crackers.
English Toffee…I have never had the chocolate kind. just the regular kind. I liked this just as well.
I took a once over the coconut chips and was like ah blah. I’m not a chip person. But thought I have to try it right? These are amazing. They aren’t chip chips. They are roasted coconut shavings. Love these. Used them in my homemade granola.
The cinnamon sugar pita chips were my daughters fav. We shared them till the bag was gone! How easy would it be to make those babies?!?!? In bulk…hum..might be a good project!
Earl grey tea. A mood relaxer! Love tea at night before bed. Especially with those Speculoos cookies. Dipped them right in there.
Thanks Kyle for you wonderful box of goods.

If you are interested in the Foodie Penpal program check out the details below!
Here’s a detailed explanation of the program:
-On the 5th of the 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 can choose 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 Penpals is open to US, Canadian residents & European 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. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!
