Time again for another Food Pen Pal reveal!

My pal this month was the lovely Traci from Ohio.  She is a teacher also so we spent quite a bit of time chatting about school and “counting down the days.”  She did a fantastic job getting together the perfect box for me:)  She sent me a questionnaire about foods I liked and would be interested in trying.  She also sent me some local treats to try.

Included in the box was some apple cider tea, which I cannot wait to try:)  Two different types of rubs from a local farmer’s market.  I did not take a photo of the chickens we grilled for Easter, but I did use both on each of the chickens.  Yum yum!  Mexican spices and Mexican chillies were both not very spicy but added lots of flavor to our birds.  I also had some of the chili powder on some popcorn.  The 100 calorie packs of natural walnuts and almonds was a new to me find.  These are not available in my area. Justin’s maple almond butter is super yummy and I love all of his products.  These samples were poured over some protein pancakes and some Artic Zero Ice Cream.  The coconut oolong tea was so delicious!  I first tried it on Easter with some Paleo waffles.  It tastes just like candy!  Sweet but not too sweet, lots of coconut flavor.  I have been enjoying a cup after school as a pick me up:) Speaking of up pick-me-ups, the chocolate Traci sent was delicious.  A solid dark chocolate bar and an Easter bunny were the perfect treats to add to my box.  I shared the bunny with my dad who loves chocolate as much as I do:)  Traci also knew that I love Quest Bars and she happen to send me my absolute favorite kind, even though I really enjoy all the flavors.  Cookies and Cream is the best and I was happy she sent it:)

Traci also sent some info about two of the places she got her goodies from.  The tea and bunny came from this shop.

Thanks again, Traci!
