September's Foodie Pen Pal


This month's foodie pen pal package came from Karen, the delightful host of Living Low Carb...One Day at a Time. It was filled with local goodies from the Charleston, SC area. I was so excited to receive this package! I lived in Charleston for a few years and miss it dearly, so this was really a treat!


Kennerty Farms Honey

The honey from Kennerty Farms was my favorite honey while living in Charleston. I frequently purchased this delicious nectar from the amazing farmers markets. Charleston is one of the most fantastic places to enjoy local goods and produce. 


Low Country Seafood Seasoning
Tiverton Farms

I have not yet had the pleasure of trying Tiverton Farms seasoning but it looks and smells delicious!  A low country seafood boil is very popular in Charleston and the Low Country areas of Georgia and South Carolina. A Low Country Boil is usually made up of shrimp, crab, sausage, potatoes, corn cooked up in a one-pot feast! If you haven't ever had one, you should definitely check it out!



Charleston Tea Plantation

This was another item I used to enjoy while living in Charleston. The Charleston Tea Plantation has some super tasty teas!! I love, love, love peach tea. I think it is delish hot or iced.

Thanks so much Karen for the great package, I really enjoyed it!

Some information if you are interested in joining Foodie Pen Pals...

And now it's time for some details about Foodie Penpals.  In case you’re a new reader, here’s a reminder of what the program is all about:
-On the 5th of every month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal! 
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)
-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you are to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month. 
-Foodie Penplas is open to US & Canadian residents.  Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We've determined things might get too slow and backed up if we're trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa. 
If you’re interested in participating for October, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions. 
You must submit your information by October 4th as pairings will be emailed on October 5th!

*If you're from somewhere besides the US, Canada or Europe and want to participate, send me an email and I'll see if we get enough interest this month!
