I love receiving fun mail (aka not bills) in my mailbox, so this month I signed up for Foodie Pen Pals.
I got paired up with the delightful Liam fom The Little Locavore. He sent me a list of questions asking all about what types of foods that I enjoy and he filled it out too. I was a little intimated by an intrepid 11 year old who has cooked with Food Network stars and I really took some time to consider what to send him!
When I got this tweet I knew I had picked the right items and I couldn’t wait to see what he sent me.
After a trip to the post office, I was excited to open my box. Here’s what was inside:
Liam wrote me a charming note. He said he got all the items in my box from _Irate Joe’s. (Pirate Joe’s is an unaffiliated unauthorized re-seller of Trader Joe’s products in Canada). I was so excited! I’m a huge Trader Joe fan (despite being Canadian) and on my last trip to California, I actually made a point out of going there with reusable shopping bags in hand.
I admired the purple tissue paper and sent it a’ flyin’.
Here’s what was included:
- Trader Joe’s Sea Salt Potato Chips
- Trader Joe’s Popcorn with Olive Oil
- Trader Joe’s Brownie Mix (wheat, gluten & egg-free)
- Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate

Yum! I love Trader Joe’s and that note is so cute! Also kudos to you on making homemade salsa. Super impressive!
A bountiful year with tomatoes in my garden yielded much sauce & salsa! Yum.

Love this – he’s such a cutie too! What was your favourite item in the box?
The potato chips were delicious. I haven’t dove into any of the rest of it yet.
