January Foodie Penpals

We took a month off from Foodie Penpals but we're back for a new year of fun and sharing!!














I get so excited about the package that I get to put together each month, and the package that I'm anticipating receiving.

This month I received, like, THE BEST package ever!!!! From Melissa. She really hit the nail on the head with her package she sent. It was soooo me. And it had a nice personal touch.



She sent some local items from Florida (so wish I was there), and she knew I liked caramel so she really delivered with this fancy caramel brittle. Yes that is caramel brittle with cashews and POTATO CHIPS sprinkled with sea salt. I am about some salted caramel. I ate 3/4 of the bag as soon as I got it.




















Another local product, this caramel corn. Can't go wrong with caramel corn. Most of that is gone as well.



 









 


She also sent some local honey. Adorbs. This will be put to good use.

 
























Besides the local items, she sent some of her homemade strawberry jam. She's got me wanting to try my hand at canning! That's also a lemon from her tree. Aww, so personal!


























In my emails with her, I had mentioned that I could use some K-Cups since I recently got a Keurig machine. Then one day at the store I realized that they come in packs of like 12 so I felt bad that I had told her that! But she managed to "borrow" a couple from her neighbor. Thanks, Melissa's neighbor :)

 


















And last but not least, another personal touch.... her product, a bag of Juice Plus chewables. So cool! They were like little fruit snacks. 


























I thoroughly enjoyed my package this month. You done good, Melissa, you done good :)

Peace, and bacon grease!

Lived in Florida until I was 32 and never heard of Palmetto honey. Palmetto BUGS, yes, all the time, but not honey. We got the orange blossom honey, good stuff.
