Have you heard of Foodie Penpals? It’s the brainchild of Lindsay over at the Lean Green Bean. Each month, hundreds of bloggers and readers come together to do a massive food gift exchange. Lindsay sends us our matches at the beginning of the month, we head out and spend $15 getting some awesome foodie loot and then send it off to our match. In the mean time, your match is doing the same for you and by the middle of the month, you get an awesome food-filled package in the mail. It’s a pretty sweet deal.
This month, I got an awesome package in the mail from Abby at The Closet Files. She was amazing and worked with me to make sure I got my box before we left on vacation. And she tossed in some great road trip snacks and drinks. Which we definitely used while driving down the interstate.
In my box of goodies was some trail mix, banana chips, a delicious blackberry Izze, a green tea, a single serving Nutella (!) and some incredible coffee!
I was so excited about the coffee that I whipped up a “pot” of French press with it while I packaged up my own Foodie Penpal gift pack. It was some of the best coffee I’ve ever had. Yum!
Thank you so much, Abby! You knocked it out of the park with your selections.

Wondering what I sent out? Head on over to Anna’s blog to check out what goodies I picked up for her.
Did you ever have a penpal?
I had a few growing up, but nothing long term. I joined a lot of those international pen pal networks and it was fun to get postcards from all over the world as a kid.
