June Foodie Penpal: Thanks Paige!


Hello My Lovelies!  Okay, I have to admit, in my head that sounded very funny.  Hope it sounded somewhat funny to you…  Probably not….  I’m probably rambling…  I feel like I’m rambling….  Okay, I’m done.

If you’ve been around, you should know that I’ve been participating with Foodie Pen Pals the last few months.  I’ve really been enjoying it.  It’s always fun getting a surprise in the mail, especially one that the whole family can use (after I’ve stashed my ‘Mommy stuff”.  In other words, the stuff I really want to try but know if I don’t put it away they’ll get it and it will be gone!  LOL.  It’s crazy the things that go on around here sometimes.  For Chief Zoo Keeper, having been the baby of the family, having the last of something is very important.  Monkey is generally pretty good about asking if it’s something we don’t normally have, unless it’s chocolate or there is more than one of it.  LOL.  So, I prefer to err on the side of caution and put it away if I want to be sure and get to try it!

Anyway, on to my box!

My penpal this month was the lovely Lady Paige from Georgia.  She has taken to the Paleo lifestyle, so she sent me a Paleo friendly box!  Here is what she sent:

  • Almond Butter
  • Hazelnut Butter
  • Peanut Butter Larabar
  • Apple Pie Larabar
  • Kind Fruit & Nut Delight Bar
  • Pure Almond Chocolate Silk
  • Mi0 Energy Liquid Water Enhancer
  • Rhythm Super Foods Kale Chips

Let me say, the butters are amazing!!!  I had the privilege of trying them out in another box before and fell in love with them!  Unfortunately, I have yet to find somewhere to get them here so I hoarde my butters.  LOL.  Larabars and Kind Bars always make great snacks!  I am saving them, along with the Mi0 Energy Liquid for our upcoming road trip to Virginia!  They will surely be hits on that trip!  Cheif Zoo Keeper busted into the Kale Chips and seemed to enjoy them, I’ve yet to try them.  I was waiting to open them, then when he did I was too full to eat.  Will be trying them out soon!

As for the Chocolate Silk.  Let me say: I am a chocolate milk junkie.  I’ve loved it since I was a little girl and actually have to be careful about allowing myself to keep it around the house because I have this compulsion to drink it!  LOL.  Chief drinks Silk, as he is allergic to lactose and I’m just not a fan.  However, being chocolate I decided to give it a shot.  The result: it’s actually as great as real chocolate milk, only it doesn’t have near as many calories!!!  I’m super pleased and will totally be buying this again!  *Companies should totally sponsor these boxes!*  Only 120 calories in an 8 oz serving!  Um, yes please!  LOL.

So, as always, great box this month!

Thanks so much Paige!!!

As a side note, you can check out the box I sent at Her Split Ends.

I will confess that I go over the spending limit, I can’t seem to make myself send a box that isn’t full!  😀

It just seems so wrong!
