It’s time for another Foodie Pen Pals reveal.  This month I had the pleasure of being matched up with the lovely Jen of Pretty Little Grub.  Jen is a dietician who lives in Alberta.  We exchanged a few e-mails and found out what we each liked and disliked.  I found out Jen loves chocolate and coffee, so you can take a look at what I sent her by going to her blog.

In return, Jen sent me a box tailored to my favourite foods.  She was so thoughtful in her choices and really paid attention to my particular food preferences (mostly paleo/primal, no refined sugars).

Here’s what she sent me…

The box was wrapped with this pretty ribbon!

Not sure how she knew that these are one of my favourite snacks! Salty, crunchy and cheesy. What’s not to like!?

 

Dark chocolate with salt.  Need I say more?

I told Jen I love spicy food, so these were a great addition to the box.  Perfect to top salads!

Grain-free granola.  So delish. to sprinkle over a bowl of kefir in the morning.  This was new to me and is soooo good.

I had never seen these before. I love that Jen included it because she figured it would be difficult for me to find portable snacks due to my dietary restrictions. This was really, really good!

 

Krestan claimed these right away.  Two honey-filled sticks.  One is caramel and the other is chocolate.  Needless to say, they are both gone and were both very much enjoyed :)

Jen included a lovely, hand-written note explaining why she chose all the items.

So that concludes another month of Foodie Pen Pals.  Once again, I was thrilled with all of the items in my box.  Can’t wait to do this again.  I’ll be taking at least a month off for various reasons, but hope to sign up for October.
