I spent hours writing letters about my Boston fab five were. My penpals and I exchanged tokens like pins, questionnaires and copies of radio recordings. For instance I would tap an interview off a New York City station in exchange for a Los Angeles interview.
Now in my late-thirties and far from my fab five days (though I can't wait to see them again this summer in Brooklyn!!) I find myself with new and more mature penpals - Foodie Penpals!!!
In 2011, Lindsay, a dietitian and blog writer (http://www.theleangreenbean.com/), decided to start a food exchange and it's now grown to over 1,000 participants in the US, Canada and UK. Anyone can be part, blogger or not. The idea was so fantastic, I just had to sign up!
This is technically the second time I've signed up for the exchange. This month, my foodie penpal, Cassidi, sent to me a wonderful box of goodies.
- Boulder Canyon Red Wine Vinegar Potato Chips
- Yummy Earth Organic Lollipops
- Willamette Valley Vanilla Bean Granola Crisps
- Ritter Sport Milk Chocolate with Cornflakes
- A lovely note!
