November Foodie PenPals Revealed!

Hello all!  This is my last month participating in Foodie PenPals for the time being only because I found out 2 weeks ago I was accepted to medical school!!  That's right, I'm going to be a Doctor, a Naturopathic Doctor.  I start school in October 2013 and although that is a months away, I'd like to put the money I would be spending on #foodiepenpals away for college!  I will need the money for my own food!  Ha!  I hope to continue this program in the future because it really is fun and I have received so many delicious and exciting new treats!  So, onto this month's package.  It came from Natalie and it was full of sweetness!

Those truffles were awesome filled with amaretto.  Yum!  The candy corn assortment was a nice after Halloween treat since I wasn't able to pass out candy and the other chocolates, well, I'm saving those for a rainy day!!  

This Chocolate Cabernet Wine Sauce is so delicious!  I tried a little bit, but haven't had it on ice cream or whatever else you can put it on...but it's fantastic!  A nice addition to any dessert!  

So, it was a package full of sweetness and I'm not complaining!  Thank you Natalie!

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

Love, Erin

October Foodie PenPal

I am a few days late, but better late than never!  Thank you Rudie for the GREAT package!  It definitely was loaded with TONS of yummy things!  Some I haven't even tried yet...

Those "Good Good Eat" crackers are probably my favorite thing in the box.  I almost ate the whole bag in one sitting.  I even went to my local Asian market to find some more, but I didn't have any luck.  I think I'll be buying some via internet they were that good!!

Who gets chocolate and raspberry pasta?!  I did!!  This one is going to take some creativity to figure out how to make it but thankfully Rudie enclosed some recipes with it.  I'm so curious, I must try this soon...

I leave sweet, salty, spicy, nuts, popcorn and chocolate so these were a perfect combo!  I have tried popcorn with hot sauce on it, but popcorn popped spicy I'll be in heaven. I don't want to cook it because then it will be gone...haha.  The cashews are delicious and the Pocky sticks are so good in coffee!

And more pasta, yet colorful!  Never had it, can't wait to try it!!!  

Thank you Rudie for a great box.  I loved it all!  I can't wait to see what's in my box for November!!
