It is that time again!!!! The time of the month (no, not that time of the month) where I receive a very exciting package in the mail!!! I get my foodie pen pal goodie box. This is now something that I get so excited about!! I love trying new things and seeing what people come up with to send me!! I received wonderful goodies this month…so without further ado…
It was a great balance of local yummy items and delicious chocolate to feed my 24/7 cravings!!! Of course, we opened it in the car after our speed run, which meant we had to taste test every little thing we saw!!! First I went right for the granola…a huge favorite of mine!
I loved the cranberry orange pecan…it was a nice mixture of flavors and I will be adding it to my yogurt for sure!!!! The Vanilla Almond will be making it’s way into my tofu pudding that I just made a huge batch of!!
I busted open the pretzels for Eric to try out first! They were a thumbs up and were also a yummy treat for Gavin as well. He loved them. I have to hold off on my chocolate indulgences, so I will be waiting until Sunday to try a few and make them into a nice little trail mixture with my new granola and some yummy yogurt! The Clif bars will be gladly used for my post long runs! I am not sure which to eat first…I think I will take half of each and then I get the best of both!!
This chocolate bar was totally different than anything I have ever tried!! It had a hint of lime to it, and it was actually a nice little blend!! It had some sort of kick to it while still being sweet!! The truffles are going to be the death of me!!
These received a huge squeal of delight!! Some local yummies for me to bake up and enjoy! It is a Double Chocolate Scone Mix, then a Chocolate Dessert Mix, plus a Chocolate Raspberry Spread!! I think I need to make sure all three of these go together! I plan to bake the scones for Easter morning and then add the sauce for a nice little dipping action!!! Oh, so many yummy snacks and treats to enjoy!!! A huge thank you to my foodie pen pal who sent me this wonderful package!!! Now, to sign up for April!! Hooray!
