Foodie PenPals – July 2012

I’m so excited to share what I received in my Foodie PenPals package for July, 2012. I was matched with Rebecca who unfortunately, doesn’t have a blog. Rebecca is from Bath, England.

Links:

UK and European Foodie PenPals can sign up here,
US and Canada Foodie PenPals can sign up here.

If you’re interested in joining, the basics are that you get automatically matched to a person that you will be sending your package to. You need to contact that person asking some ‘probing’ questions. Wait until they get back to you with their answers and address. Then you get to go shopping for them (yay!) And spend items you think they’d like up to the value of £10/$15 excluding postage/shipping. Then send that to them to reach by the 25th of the month. During that time, you should receive an email from the person who will be sending your package and answer them and receive yours by the 25th too.

Enough of that, here’s my package *squeee!*

In total, I received the following:

  • Pretty/colourful cupcake cases
  • Valencian orange extract
  • Goji berry mix: A mix of natural raisins, fruit juice infused cranberries, green raisins and dried goji berries
  • Vanilla bean, white Belgian chocolate and toasted coconut marshmallows – received 3 in a bag and 1 on a lollipop stick
  • An orange extract with lemon thyme inside, lollipop
  • Lucky 7 chunks of what appears to be fudge
  • Caramel, pecan and vanilla bean marshmallows.

Thank you so much, Rebecca. I loved my package. In fact, I loved it that much that all of the edibles (all marshmallows, fudge, and the lollipop) have been devoured! I started on the last night then the giant man-baby returned home and helped me finish them off.

They were uber delicious and I so can’t wait to get my hands on the recipes so I can replicate them. Hopefully I’ll get these recipes up on the blog soon. I know *I* want to make them but do you?

Pssst, want to see what I received last month? Check out this post.

    So glad you liked them Lisa!
    I really enjoyed putting all the bits n bobs together for you :)
    Not sure about the lollipop – it was a first attempt but will definitely have another go at them soon.
    Enjoy making the marshmallows, look forward to seeing your creations!

      I loved them all so much, Rebecca, thank you so very much. The lollipop was yummy and tasted orangey enough for me.

      I’ve falled in love with both the mallow flavours you sent. In fact, ever since, I’ve been craving them like mad to a point of frustration. So thanks so much for providing the basic mallow recipe so I can attempt to re-create. I’m super excited now!
