Foodie Pen Pals: June

Spread the love

The Lean Green Bean

Yay it’s my second time participating in the foodie pen pals created by the awesome Lindsay over at Lean Green Bean! I haven’t participated in last month but this month it’s back on! This month my foodie pen pal was Mary from Where’s The Zoom blog . I told Mary I wanted something healthier and that I try to watch my sugar intake and that I’m health and wellness obsessed individual. This was enough for Mary to get what to buy me, she was right on with all of her purchases and I freaking love the box!

No worries, you were right on point with all of the goodies and I have never tried any of the products you got me before so it was perfect! Such an awesome surprise, very pleasant 🙂 Here are the contents of the foodie package:

Berryblossom white tea! I have no white teas in my collection so this is PERFECT for my #teatime12. We all know how obsessed with tea I am, right? With every product I saw, all I could do was go “ooohhhh” and smile. Awesomeness.

The chocolate covered cacao nibs don’t look like much. They look kind of strange actually. I read the back and its claim says “so much more than super delicious” and yeah, I wasn’t necessarily skeptical (I trust health food) but when I bit into this… oh.. my.. GOD! This might have been the best thing I have tasted. Ever. OH wow! Seriously, it’s hard to not eat the whole thing. Good thing I saw the note on the package that says “eat consciously”. They already knew what was up. I needed that caution for sure! haha So good!

Harvest Grain Granola – gotta love granola that isn’t prepackaged 🙂 And yummy!

I’ve been in the mood to getting some crackers actually so these Sunflower basil crackers were perfect!

All in all, Mary did a wonderful job and I am very happy with my foodie pen pal experience this month! 🙂 So much fun! Now, if you’d like to check out what I got for the foodie I got matched with, Maggie from Picky and Healthy.

  1. What a great package! Those energy chews are awesome…I eat them on my long runs every weekend. I love tea also (chocolate + tea = chocolatea! 🙂 ) but haven’t tried that Tazo flavor!

    Have a wonderful weekend~

  2. What a great package you got from your penpal! I’m trying to wean myself off coffee but haven’t tried white tea yet. It looks interesting!

  3. Looks like you got a great match up last month! I’m laying out for this month because unfortunately I keep getting disappointed with my packages…I feel like I put so much thought and effort into the ones I send out and the ones I receive seem to be thrown together in a matter of minutes…only sometimes containing something I would remotely consider purchasing for myself. Those nibs look like…well, you know what they look like! Good thing they didn’t taste like what they look like! 😉 Hahaha!

    I want those crackers…with mozzarella cheese…and some cherry tomatoes…mmm, Caprese crackers! 🙂

    • Ahhh that sucks. :/ thankfully I’ve had good match ups so far, this and last time. Hopefully it will be good for this month too.

      And good thing you reminded me, I need to go buy some tomatoes! Haha
