Foodie pen pals has become one of my favorite monthly topics (so if you are tired of them..well it’s once a month-stop that and come back tomorrow). With that being said, this package was def awesome and Amy even was able to take into account that I am eating a high protein diet and have a couple of medical problems (is she not the bomb?!).
Because I like to give rhetorical questions in my blogs, I’ll answer and say-no duh.
First she sent me sugar free chocolate covered nuts. I tried one of them and then decided I wanted to eat all of them. Literally within 30 minutes of opening the box they were all gone. They were really good!
After devouring the nuts, I decided to hold off on the cookies for some time later in the week. These were a perfect work snack for me. Work has been really busy and stressful and having cookies at work…well it makes it a little better.
Next up was the mustard. I have never been a mustard fan but decided to try it anyways. It was so weird-because I really enjoyed it. I added it to some chicken we were having that night and it didn’t disappoint. My parents were shocked that I eating it, and then my mom decided she wanted some too (to which she fully enjoyed it).
Hiding back there is the edamame, which is one of my favorite work snacks. I buy this on the regular so it was nice not having too LOL. I also ate it at work.
The steel cut oats I used to make pumpkin oatmeal. I haven’t had pumpkin oatmeal in ages and this was the perfect occasion. Quite delicious per usual.
Then last (but not least), I’ve been sipping on the herb tea all week. My mom is a big tea drinker and absolutely loves this stuff as well. Me personally, I like coffee but tea is good every once in a while. This tea is certainly at the top of my list though so I’ll be taking it back to college.
In general, another awesome box! If you want to go participate in foodie pen pals-go right over to the lovely Lindsay’s blog.
Question for you:
- 1. Tea or coffee? (iced/hot)?
- 2. Have you ever participated in Foodie Pen Pals?
