I have to say I about passed out when I saw what was in my foodie Penpal package this month. Erin outdid herself. I told her I eat like an 8-year-old boy. So she made it her mission to shop like one. The package was hilariously perfect and I was thrilled. Mini-me was in here claiming things before I even took pics. So I had to shove her out of the blog room long enough to snap some photos.
This is what came in my awesome, over the top, fabulously young at heart package:
1st Degree Burn Doritos in Blazin’ Jalapeno
2nd Degree Burn Doritos in Fiery Buffalo
3rd Degree Burn Doritos in Scorchin’ Habanero
Tin of Corn Crunch
Box of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
Bag of Natural Almonds
Bag of Kettle Cooked Peanuts
Bag of Crazy Cores Skittles
Nerds in Wildberry/Peach
Strawberry Power Poppers Exploding Candy
Grape Power Poppers Exploding Candy
2 Packages of Love Hearts
Fudge from The Okanagan Fudge & Sundae Company
Bag of Red Chocolate Covered Cherries
I would like to thank Erin Beasley from the bottom of my 8-year-old heart. She took what I told her and ran with it. It felt like Christmas here the day I got it. Erin said this reminded her of being a kid and saving up money, then riding her bike to the store to pick out her favourites. I am so thrilled I was able to make her feel that again. I think we all did that when we were little and just living in the moment. So if my antics made someone live in the moment I am beyond pleased. I think that’s really where the heart of my blog lies. Reminding people of food they loved as a kid. And having at it as an adult. So much fun.
Erin also shared some jokes in her card which reduced me to hysterically fits of laughter. She really went above and beyond with this package. So hopefully she doesn’t mind me sharing her jokes with you.
What do you get when you cross a vampire with a snowman? Frostbite!
Why don’t cats play poker in the jungle? Too many cheetahs!
What do you call a kangaroo in the North Pole? A lost kangaroo!
I love it! Erin you get me. That makes me beyond happy. So glad you got my name and hope I pull yours in the future so I can repay your kindness. You really outdid yourself. I am beyond thrilled with every single thing.
My package went out to the lovely Kelly who blogs at Relatively Gourmand. I was so happy to hear they loved everything. Kelly you were a joy to shop for.
If any of you folks out there want to join in the fun of Foodie Penpals you should contact Lindsay who blogs at The Lean Green Bean. She’ll hook you up. And try not to be too jealous when you stop by. She was in Kauai recently. So I’m not sure we’re friends any more. I am far too jealous to be friends with her right now. I’m sure I’ll get over it. But for now I’ll just cry myself to sleep dreaming of Hawaii. Unlike Lindsay who got to go. Blows good natured raspberries at Lindsay’s tan bod!
Toodles and smoochies! xx
