It’s that time again – reveal day for Foodie Pen Pals! This was my third month participating, I’m really enjoying it! As a reminder, Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean runs this fabulous program and does a great job of it. You don’t have to have a blog to participate. If you do have a blog, you get to write a post about all the wonderful goodies you receive.

My package came from Stacy at Wanderlust Hearts. It is so exciting receiving a package in the mail that is full of goodies that you’ve probably never had before. And even more exciting, I love receiving mail that doesn’t have a due date!

I am not sure where the shadows came from on these pictures….

Isn’t this a fabulous card? I loved it when I saw it, then loved it even more when I saw Stacy’s note that it was a photo she had taken herself. Love it!

Now on to the goodies!! This box had a “sweet” theme to it. I love sweets. And I love trying new sweets that I have not tried!

First on the list is Love Crunch Carrot Cake Granola. Admittedly, I am not a fan of carrot cake but it is really yummy! For some reason, the flavors remind me of hot roasted cinnamon almonds that you would buy at a theme park. This will definitely make a great snack.

Next up was Stacy’s homemade chocolate olive oil biscotti. I love receiving homemade treats and there were definitely a treat. Just the right amount of sweet and nice and crunchy.

Do you follow a gluten-free or dairy-free diet? These cookies are just that and they are YUMMY. Oatmeal cookies are one of my favorite and I really enjoy these.

Last in my sweet box, is a Double Dark Chocolate cupcake mix. Chocolate is definitely a weakness of mine so I am super excited to try this. I have not yet had a chance to make these with all the sweets we’ve had around here since Thanksgiving, but this cute little container will sit on my counter as a reminder to make sooner than later.

Thank you, Stacy, for my sweets package. I love it!

If you’d like to join in the fun, be sure to go HERE to sign-up for the next round, which will be in January. Lindsay is asking everyone to donate the money you would have spent on a FPP box to the victims of Hurricane Sandy. She will have more details on her blog, so please be sure to read all about it if you are interested in helping. I think it is a fantastic idea and I will definitely participate.
