Since we spent yesterday stuffing ourselves with delicious Thanksgiving food, let’s talk more food today, yeah? Itz almost the end of November which means itz Foodie Pen Pal Reveal Day over at The Lean Green Bean!
My pen pal this month lives in Japan. Usually you are paired with someone from your country, but because Monica is stationed on an air base outside of Tokyo, she has a US address which made mailing her package easy as pie. She, too, is a teacher, and she teaches kids of our military families. I liked her immediately. Monica sent an absolutely awesome package and confirmed why exactly I participate in Foodie Pen Pals. I love the program because it introduces me to new foods, and that’s what Monica accomplished with her loaded box. Luckily she sent a note telling me what everything is since I can’t read Japanese!
- Curry Cup Soup
- Corn Pottage Soup
- Chocolate Covered Chips
- Veggie Straws
- Green Tea Chocolate
- Japanese Gummies
destroyed eaten the chocolate covered chips (oddly good!) and the Japanese gummies which taste much more like real fruit than American fruit snacks. I also liked how different most of the flavors were, especially the pineapple, apple, and peach!
- Pineapple Jelly
- Veggie Chips
- A bakery item
- Maple Waffle
- Chocolate Covered Almonds
Haven’t tasted any of these yet, but I’m most curious about the maple waffle…. that’s in a package haha.
- Caramel Cinnamon Sugar
- Dessert Honey Sunflower
- Peanut Butter & Co Dark Chocolate Dreams
- Beautiful napkin
Can’t wait to try the caramel cinnamon sugar – that’s a new one to me! I know cinnamon sugar is a common combination in the US, but caramel is going to be a great addition! Monica said this peanut butter is her favorite and she has it shipped to her; I know why – itz amazing! Thanks, Monica, for this thoughtful, delicious package! Itz by far the very best I’ve ever received, and we’re talking about hooking our classes up as real pen pals at school. How cool would that be?!
Have you ever been to Japan? Which of these goodies look best to you?
