November FPP reveal!

on November 30, 2012

It’s the last day of the month — so you know what that means – it’s Foodie PenPal Reveal day!! I’m so glad that I remembered to sign up this month– I missed the deadline in October and I was so bummed!! A GREAT BIG thanks to Lindsay @ the Lean Green Bean  for dreaming up this idea and taking the time to organize it! Phew! What a project 🙂

FPP post Foodie Penpals November Reveal Day

This month I sent goodies to my penpal Kathy – she doesn’t have a blog (yet!) – but I sent her all kinds of spicy foods (my favorite find was chocolate with chiles!), and some pumpkin flavored goodies as well 🙂

My penpal this month was Carissa from Lilies and Silks – she is a stay-at-home mom who blogs about shopping, fashion, and all her sewing projects 🙂 This was her first foodie penpal exchange, and I was quite impressed!! But, let’s get to the goods, shall we?


Yummy!!! I had a whole bunch of tasty snacks in my foodie box!! I told Carissa that I LOVE chocolate peanut butter, and that I try to eat healthy, but that I like my treats too! She did not disappoint! First up, Luna bars — my favorite!!!


Carissa sent my Lemon Zest (one of my favorites!!), Caramel Nut Brownie, White Chocolate Macademia, and Toasted Nuts & Cranberry (which is a flavor that I’ve never even seen!!) I love Luna bars and they are one of my go-to snacks!!  I haven’t yet tried the cranberry one — I’m holding out, because I don’t want it to be gone!!!)novfpp3

Next up — sweet treats — those Lindt peanut butter chocolate candy is SO yummy — they make a perfect choice for when I need something sweet — and the moster trail mix is too!!! I try NOT to pick out all the M&M’s! Carissa also sent me some Keebler Peanut Butter crackers – both P and I like to eat those for a snack too! Carissa definitely hit a home run with my peanut butter craving 🙂


And last but not least, some new granola to try! Doesn’t it sound delicious? I havent yet tried any, but as soon as my chocolate granola is gone – that one is next on my list. I’ m pretty sure that it would be good on just about anything — I may even have to try it over some ice cream 🙂  Thanks for all your hard work Carissa!!!! 🙂

Interested in being a foodie penpal? You should be !! You can find all the information on Lindsay’s blog – and next month is a GREAT month to start! That’s because Lindsay is always coming up with great ideas and she loves to help out others!! Next month, FPP is for charity, and all participants are donating to the victims of Hurricane Sandy!! The money that would normally be spent on making a foodie penpal box will be donated the the charity New York Cares — I can’t think of a better way to kick off this holiday season!! 🙂

      oh! You need to try them!!! My absolute favorite is the chocolate peppermint ones!! (at least thus far) – I’m not sure if they are GF or not though 😦 *~*Brittany*~*

  2. That is awsome and looks like a great box of goodies. Glad you had such a good month of FPP. 🙂
