Foodie Pen Pals Reveal Day!

This month I (finally) participated in Foodie Pen Pals! What is it? Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean started it as a way to discover new foods and show your faves!

I was sent an awesome package from Jamie at That Mommy Blog.

Black chickpeas. She looked on my Pinterest and saw I had some recipes with them! How sweet! Haven’t used them yet, but looking forward to it!

Almond butter and a fruit bar! I was so excited to finally try almond butter. And guess what? I didn’t really like it. That’s probably a good thing because if I did I  would eat it nonstop! I haven’t eaten the bar yet, but I’m really impressed by it! The only ingredients are apples and cherries!

Chips and soup. The chips are right from St. Louis and gluten free! Actually, all the food Jamie sent me was gluten free! I’m not much for chips so my mom ate them. She said they were good! We’re waiting to make the soup. It looks super good! And fairly healthy!

Thank you so much Jamie for making my first Foodie Pen Pals experience a great one!


I sent my package to Sarah. She was super nice and wrote up a little post for me to share!

“In my package from Leigha I received a block of peanut butter fudge, saltwater taffy, a chocolate bar called a “yooper bar” shaped like a section of Michigan, and a homemade peanut butter egg. Everything was very delicious, especially the peanut butter fudge! I thought the chocolate bar was very cool. The fact that it was called a “yooper bar” intrigued me enough to look up why, so not only was it yummy but also educational! Thank you so much Leigha!! ”

Foodie Pen Pals will definitely be in the future! It’s such a great thing!

  1. I have never even heard of black chickpeas. I SO want to try them now, though!

    You should give almond butter another chance. You are likely very used to the taste of PB so AB just probably tastes too different or “weird.” I did not love it when I first tried it, but now I am hooked!!
