Foodie Pen Pals: April 2014

The Lean Green Bean

This month’s foodie pen pal was great. If you are unfamiliar with what the program a quick overview of the program entails signing up from a month to month basis, you get set up with someone else (can be another blogger or a reader), you exchange shipping information and any dietary restrictions and then you give and receive a nice box full of goodies! Click on the image above if you want more info. This month my foodie pen pal was Mandy from Minnesota. My main request for my foodie pen pals is to send me any of their favorite foods or something that is unique or local to where they live and that’s exactly what I got!

Wild Rice – having seen wild rice in grocery stores I’ve always been a little intimidated to get it so I’m glad Mandy included this in this month’s package and can’t wait to use it. And it’s 100% naturally grown from Minnesota Lakes and Rivers :)

Honey – this pure natural honey is also straight from Minnesota and having very little left from the generic brand I bought a few months back, I’m eve more excited to have received this.

My main request for my foodie pen pals is to send me any of their favorite foods or something that is unique or local to where they live… Yvette did not fail to deliver #punintended.MarchFoodiePenpalWhite Corn Tortilla Chips – tortilla chips are my favorite… with salsa, cheese, guacamole and with chili of course!

Clint’s Texas Salsa – what’s better than salsa with your tortilla chips and these are straight from Texas. Haven’t had them yet but I’m excited to try it.

Big Red – Yvette mentioned that you can’t get these outside of Texas so I felt extra special :)

Mexican Wedding Cookies – I seriously couldn’t get enough of these, they were so yummy. They reminded me of snicker doodle cookies, Dave said they reminded him of cinnamon toast crunch… either way they were delicious!

In her note she mentioned that these were some of her favorite products but a lot of this stuff are MY favorite products… nut mix? dark chocolate? almond butter? yes please!
