Foodie Pen Pals: Trader Joe's 100%

Ooh I am loving my foodie pen pal packages. Once a month me and fellow food bloggers exchange boxes of treats (both homemade and store bought) and then write about them. Who doesn't love getting something in the mail? Even better when it's food related right?!

Ooh, I highly recommend this goodness on your next Trader Joe's visit
After my marathon weekend trip in Ohio I needed to do some grocery shopping. I of course popped around the corner to pick up a few staples at my local Trader Joe's, though I was wanting to get more groceries I told myself there might be some special treats in my Food Pen Pal box! Low and behold I see I have a package from my Foodie Pen Pal, Carrie at Family Fitness Food, and guess what? It is FILLED with delicious foods from Trader Joe's! What more could a girl ask for?!

I always think I've tried everything there is at TJ's, but Carrie proved me wrong by picking up a few of her favorites for my box o' TJ's fun:

Trader Joe's Foodie Pen Pal Goodies from Carrie at Family Fitness Food

Carrie packed my box full of dark chocolate, everything crackers (love), a chocolate bar with peanut butter, creamy TJ's PB, pumpkin seed snacks, two types of seaweed snacks and olive tapenade. She'd also made some peanut butter granola, but sadly it didn't survive the trip from Cali to Chicago.

I sent a box of local (Chicago) chocolate based goodies over to The Little Spoon Blog - check it out here.

  1. I'm so glad you liked everything. And I'm still so sad that the granola didn't survive. I was hurrying to get it all in the box and I don't think I let it cool down enough.

    Glad I could share my love of Trader Joe's with you.
