Every month Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean Blog hosts Foodie Pen Pals, an exchange that pairs you up with another US participant. You exchange e-mails with your pen pal finding out if they have any allergies and their likes and dislikes, then by the 15th of the month you send them a box of goodies and they send you one!
It’s a fun way to discover new local foods from a different part of the US and to share some of your favorites with them!
This month I was paired up with Clara Houin who sent me some goodies from Tennessee.
She sent me a variety of teas: Tea forte kiwi lime ginger and tangerine rosemary, and Harney and Sons Pomegranate Oolong tea.
Eden Organic spicy pumpkin seeds, a local Grab the Gold Vegan chocolate Peanut butter bar, Bobo’s Oat bar Maple Pecan, and Go Raw Banana Bread flax bar, and Santosha cayenne maca raw chocolate! Plus a local magazine to read!
I haven’t got around to trying everything yet, but I’m looking forward to it! I had fun flipping through the native magazine too and getting a little peek into Tennessee life.
