I love foodie pen pals... it makes the third week of the month so exciting to check the mail. This month my foodie pen pal was Amanda Legare.
I was so lucky to have received an amazing package from her!! I opened the box to see this...
I can't believe it stayed that perfectly wrapped travelling through the mail.
After I opened it and read the card this is what was inside!
I love love love everything she sent me. I meant to get a few pictures of each item, but they disappeared way to quickly.
The first thing I tried were the seaweed snacks - these were wasabi flavoured toasted nori. Amanda warned that these were highly addictive - and she was right! Once I opened the package I could not stop eating them until sadly - none were left. I have thankfully found where to buy these - so I will be feeding my newly found craving.
The next thing I had was Justin's classic Almond butter and Chocolate Peanut butter. Amanda said she ordered these online and I can see or should I say taste why. I especially loved the chocolate peanut butter - but then that is my favourite flavour combination. These little packets would be perfect for interior camping trips or travelling.
The third item from Amanda was Chocolatey Mint tea. Chocolate and mint is my second fave flavour combo. This tea is the perfect substitute for a hot chocolate - with 0 calories. Yum!
The fourth treat sent by Amanda was a peanut butter Lara bar. Out of all of the combinations and flavours of Lara bars I've tried I hadn't tried the peanut butter one. It was great as well!
Amanda also sent 2 Clean Eating magazines. I have been having so much fun flipping through and looking at new recipes. I even experimented with a taco recipe that I'll be posting on in a week or so. These are great magazines!
And I am saving the absolute best for last.... she sent me the most amazing granola I have ever tried - Love Grown - simple oats. I am even going to say it is better than mine. The granola is toasted to perfection and it has the perfect balance of sweetness and cinnamon. Here is how I have been enjoying it.
So again thank you so much to Amanda this was a perfect package and definitely made my month happier!
