Foodie penpal reveal!


This month’s foodie penpal reveal comes courtesy of Carmen, just the other side of my lovely province of BC. I sent treats to Tiffany in Ontario. I confided in Carmen that I’ve been really trying hard to reduce cheese and find a plant-based coffee creamer that works in coffee, and Carmen really helped me out. This is a super-sized foodie penpal package filled with good intentions for me, and I really appreciate the care Carmen put into the package.

First to be eaten were the vegetarian gummy bears. I haven’t had those in years. When I went to try the jelly beans a few days later, I found that my son had snuck most of the package, but I got to try a few and both the gummy bears and the beans tasted fruity, sweet, and were very good. The next morning I tried the mimiccreme. It’s not the perfect creamer, but I would try it again if I could find it locally (or just bring some back next time I’m in Vancouver).

I love tasty bars, so I enjoyed the Taste of Nature and Kind bars as snacks in my bentos. I plan on using the Quinoa puffs in a Rice Krispie square kind of dish. I loved the Sea Snax, and they were a wonderful distraction during my study time! I used the coconut chips in a Lara bar recipe to rave reviews from both me and the hubs. I haven’t tried the almonds or the kelp noodles yet.

Thank you to Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean for hosting the program, and thank you to Carmen for an amazing package!
