This month, I was assigned a non-blogger (probably because I am very much like a non-blogger since I haven't really been blogging ... I digress ... I really hope to get on this!). Since Melissa is not a blogger, she was kind enough to write up a post for my blog about the box she received. I was excited to see that she really did enjoy the treats I sent her. After I received my awesome box, I began to think I had shortchanged her! I found it funny that she felt the same way after receiving my box. I suppose that we will all become better at as we learn from each other. :) At any rate, I apologize for the late post (I found it hard to plug back in this weekend after unplugging on Friday) and really want to share Melissa's post with you. I am working on my post; my box was too fun!
Hi fans of Revved Runner!
This month I participated in a fantastic Foodie Penpal program and I was lucky enough to be paired with the author of this blog... Revved Runner! In the Foodie PenPal program, you are paired with one person to whom you send a package of food ($15 or less) and another person sends you a package of food. The sender picks the food that you will receive but asks you first whether you have allergies, aversions, etc.
Revved Runner sent me a phenomenal package of food. When I opened it, it contained so many wonderful things that I actually felt a little guilty because I think I may have shortchanged the person that to whom I sent a package this month! There was chocolate (Dove chocolate!), which my 16 year old daughter promptly stole and I never saw again... nuts, protein powders, trail mixes, mixes to flavor water, gluten-free cookies, and more! It was the perfect package for me! I am a health nut (nut being the operative word... I LOVE nuts!!). My favorite things in the package were the GoRaw flax snacks (I ate virtually the entire bag by myself yesterday) and the GoneNuts bags of nuts. These came in Curry and Pesto flavor. I have never seen them before but they were fantastic! My husband couldn't keep his hands off the curry ones. I was also very excited about the vegan brown rice protein powder that she sent. I am always looking for a good vegan, raw, non-soy protein powder and this one was great!!
Revved Runner said in her note that the things she put in the box were some of her favorite things, and since I loved them all so much and think she and I should eat together sometime! :) Thanks Revved Runner for a fantastic, well thought-out box of goodies!
