My foodie penpals package for September is heeere!
I was excited to receive it this month (even more so than usual I mean) because the person sending to me is someone I know pretty well from blogging and even met once – the lovely Charlotte. This month’s parcel was a giant envelope, so on opening it I tipped it all out on the floor:
Check out those noms! Here’s a more detailed look at what my parcel contained:
A strawberry bear and a raspberry bear. I’m not 100% sure what these are but I can’t wait to find out!
This is really cool! Chocolate pieces, raisins, dried cranberries and cherries in a little pack. Immediately after I finished taking the photos I ripped this open and devoured it. It was delicious – and it counts as one of my five a day!
The savoury stuff. A sausage casserole mixture and some Jamie Oliver stuffing mix that sounds amazing!
“The dark side of Skittles”. I’m very intrigued by these.
Finally, some fruity green tea that says it’s good for my immune system. Charlotte said she included this so I wouldn’t catch another bad cold – how thoughtful is that?
She also sent me this cute pasta postcard (the rules say you must include something written with the food – it is supposed to be “penpals” after all!).
I’ve been totally spoiled with this months package. So many treats! Thank you Charlotte 🙂
As for me, I was again sending to somebody without a blog. Alice, from England, told me she’s gluten intolerant, which ruled out a lot of the traditional Swiss things I usually send. This is what I ended up putting together for her:
Amazingly, I managed to squidge all of that into one rather small box. Check it out:
