My Foodie Penpal

Well, after a long hiatus on the blog front, I figured I still needed to post a big thank you to my Foodie Penpal of the month, Cori! The stuff she sent me was awesome!

The Lean Green Bean

I got some lovely homemade pumpkin muffins, some exquisite chocolates from what I gather is a famous store in Buffalo, Coconut water, hot sauce, and some Justin's Almond Butter! Plus, everything was wrapped up very beautifully with the prettiest little card!

And then when I looked at what the chocolates were (you know.... ala Forrest Gump... 'you never know what you're gonna get' and all that) I was delighted! Look at the little guys!

Buffalo from buffalo (and tasty dark chocolate ones at that!) The other candy you see in there were some sort of orange sponge cake coated in creamy milk chocolate. It was a bit of local flavor from Watson's!
I'd never tried Justin's Almond Butter before, but boy, was I in for a treat. The stuff was so authentically nutty, and I also LOVED the whole salt crystal parts that counteracted the sweet maple flavor with their saltiness. Over all.... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm is just about all I can say. A big thank you to Lindsay over at the Lean Green Bean for organizing this and of course, a shout out to my pen pal Cori. Thanks a bunch! I loved it!
