-On the 5th of every month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal!
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)
-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you are to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month.
-Foodie Penpals is open to US & Canadian residents. Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We've determined things might get too slow and backed up if we're trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa.

Christie did an AWESOME job with my package!!! I was so excited to open it when it came in the mail. Since I am not much of a picky eater she asked me what my favorite snacks were. She nailed everything and her note was so sweet! My package included a little of everything I told Christie that I liked; white chocolate, dried fruit, & granola treats. She included Clif Bars, Clif Mojo bars, Lindor white chocolate and granola. It was perfect and also made for good snacks on my road trip to Eugene for my marathon. The Lindor white chocolate is sooooo good. I will need to buy more of it soon! If you like the combination of sweet/salty you have got to check out Mojo bars. They are so good! :-)
