And man oh man, did Phyllis deliver. Check out this box of goodies:
Phyllis filled my foodie pen pal package with peanut butter malt balls (because I love PB more than Elvis), locally available pecan pralines, Texas-made WackyM's Cookies (which were a chocolate snicker doodle with a spicy aftertaste), Brazilian-made peanut butter, peach salsa made just up the street and Texas-shaped soap.
I loved trying all the different treats, and appreciate Phyllis's thoughtful contributions. It's touching to be able to connect with strangers through the common language of food.
If you're open to trying new foods and want to connect with people who are just as passionate about food as you are, I highly recommend joining the Foodie Pen Pal program hosted by The Lean Green Bean. Registration for the July exchange is available, and I'm super excited for another month of adventurous treats!
