June Foodie Pen Pal!

Posted Jun 30 2012 12:00am
I feel VERY lucky, because I had another AWESOME Foodie Pen Pal this month. My Pen Pal was Susan you can check out her blog Susonia HERE . Susan said that she wasn't familiar with the gluten free isle at her local grocery store, but having me as her Foodie Pen Pal this month forced her to venture into unknown territory! Her quest to learn more about gluten free foods was successful because she did an excellent job picking out each item she sent me.

My treats!!
I really enjoyed everything in my package! Susan sent me the following items
- gluten free fruit & nut cookies (my friend Candis and I enjoyed these with a cup of tea!)
- organic gummy bears from Surf Sweets (these lasted all of 5 seconds of course! They tasted really different from regular gummy bears but were equally as delicious!)
- a package of Barney Butter: Almond Butter (my fav!)
- a package of roasted sunflower seeds (I haven't opened these yet but I am planning to sprinkle them on salads)
- a RE-BAR which I had been dying to try
- a Vega Bar (she has read on my blog that I like these, so sweet!)

Susan even took the time to hand write this little note!

I loved this little personal touch!
I loved getting a couple of different types of bars in my package because they are easy to throw in your purse, or take to work. I was running late for work one day last week and was so happy to have the RE-BAR to take with me to have for a quick breakfast. The cookies lasted me a while and I was able to enjoy them with several cups of tea over the past week. I am looking forward to trying the sunflower seeds as well as the almond butter. I love almond butter but have never tried this particular brand. Susan suggested I put it on some apple slices and this is exactly what I plan on doing!

Even though I was running late for work I still had time to take a pic for my blog!
