Last month I signed up for Foodie Pen Pals, a fun way to share and receive all kinds of interesting foods.
Foodie Pen Pals was started by Lindsay at the Lean Green Bean Blog over a year ago. Basically, thousands of people (not just bloggers) sign up to participate. When you sign up, you are assigned one person to send a package, but you will receive a package from a different person.
So she sent me a TON of packaged Japanese treats!
I was surprised by the shear amount of goodies she sent me. Although, I have to admit, since I don’t speak one bit of Japanese, I was a bit aprehensive about opening up all the unidentifiable packages…oh, for about two seconds….and then I jumped right in.
Here are a few of the things Rose sent me.
Shortbread cookies with a thin chocolate center
These are the Japanese version of Hot Fries. They taste and look exactly the same.
Cute little utensils with smiley faces on the handle
