It’s my favourite time of the month – Foodie Pen Pal Reveal Day! I skipped out on last months Pen Pal match because I was really busy working on my masters thesis proposal, but I’m back this month and I had an awesome pen pal! What to know more about what I’m talking about? Head on over to The Lean Green Bean to check it out.
My foodie pen pal Tiffany contacted me right away and after finding out what each of us likes/dislikes we set off to create our boxes for each other! I was beyond excited when my box arrived and it conveniently on a day when I had come home from a long day – it was the best thing to come home too. But what was inside…?
Lindt Sea Salt and 70% Cacao Chocolate// Hello chocolate – two bars of amazing Lindt chocolate. I’ve never tried the sea salt kind but I’m 100% sure Mr. A and I will LOVE it.
Lime Saffron Pistachios//Don’t worry guys I already tried these and they’re perfect!
Davids Tea Pink Lemonade Rooibos// I looove tea and lemonade and I’m so excited to try this one.
Almond Rice Pops//Tiffany’s son picked this one out for me! I plan to take it for a snack at school this week
Garlic Lime Chicken Fajita Recipe Card – I was so excited when I saw this because I’ve always wanted to try them out. Tiffany was kind enough to also include a recipe that she uses when she cooks with these spices!
That’s everything! I’m super excited about everything my pen pal sent me, and I can’t wait to try out some of the things I haven’t gotten around to yet. My pen pal Tiffany doesn’t have a blog, but she wanted to write a bit about the items I sent her! Take it away Tiffany…
My name is Tiffany, I don’t have a blog but luckily Melissa was happy to have me do a guest post on hers about our Foodie Pen Pal exchange!
This is my second time participating in the program. I had so much fun putting together a little something for someone else to enjoy and getting a surprise package as well that I decided to sign up again. I’m so glad I did as Melissa sent me a great package!

I was most excited to try these in well, “anything and everything” as she suggested! I’ve never had them and was super happy to see them in the package since I’ve been wanting to try them out. I must say they are quite delish all on their own. They taste nutty but not overpoweringly so as I had thought they might be, which is great!
Lindt milk chocolate:
Lindt really does make thee best chocolate! Chocolate is such a perfect classic pick me up treat that I will surely be enjoying square by heavenly square!
Earl grey tea:
I must admit that I am not so fond of this type of tea. I’ve always found it to taste a bit odd almost like the flavour of fruit loops but yet still a black tea. However off putting to me I am always up to trying something new and I have not yet tried this brand so I will do my best to give it a go with an open mind. Especially because Melissa said it was her fav!
Sierra trail mix:
What’s not to love about trail mix? Such a simple yummy snack. My son and I enjoyed some while watching a movie together for a healthy night time snack!
Black and white kettlecorn:
Oh my goodness I have very little will power when it comes to popcorn as I just love it in all it’s many varieties! Which is why I am so glad that I put a bit into a bowl instead of eating out of the bag as I certainly would have devoured the entire bag! Every bite was a deliciously perfect indulgent treat!
As you can see Melissa did a great job picking items for me! Here’s hoping she enjoyed my picks for her as much as I did hers to me :D
If you haven’t had a chance to sign-up for Foodie Pen Pals I strongly encourage it! Have an awesome Wednesday and Happy October!
