At the beginning of the month I got an email from a girl named Ashley from Vermont, letting me know she was going to be my Foodie Pen Pal for the month of September. Although Ashley doesn’t have a blog herself, she sent me an email sharing some information about her so I would know a little something about the girl who was sending me a package of food! She shared a couple of pictures with me and her mutual love of all things fall, pearls, and JCrew. I’m pretty sure we’d be great friends if she lived anywhere near me!
This was my first month participating in Foodie Pen Pals so I was probably overly excited when my package arrived from Ashley. Not only did she include some seriously sweet finds, she also included a super cute hand written note explaining each item.
The first thing I dug into was the coffee toffee. I’m not going to lie when I tell you that stuff only lasted a couple of days in my house. It was so good! It’s probably a good thing it’s not sold around here otherwise I might be a little heftier. This was also my first time trying real maple syrup. I haven’t actually topped it on any waffles yet, but I tasted a little on my finger and OMG – I’m seriously missing out! It’s amazing!
And the Monkey Chews? Total save for the morning I was almost late for breakfast! It was yummy and filling, and I was able to eat it on the go!
I’ll be honest when I say nothing from the box lasted more than a week except the syrup. Thank you Ashley for sending me such tasty items, and for the awesome note! You rock!
