Here is the reveal of my October foodie pen pal package, which happens to be my first foodie pen pal package! If you never heard of a foodie pen pal before, refer to my previous post “What is a Foodie Pen Pal?

My pen pal, Taralyn, who sent my a package this month, lives in Utah and I bet she knows all about the how to stay warm, as she sent me a few things that will help me adjust the recent drop in temperature in Saint Louis!

My Foodie Package

Chicken Noodle Soup with Savory Crackers & Herbal Red Tea

Soup and tea are essentials to have in my kitchen cupboard! I can’t have enough during the fall and winter months!

Fiesta and Dill Dip Mixes (Grandma’s Signature Dips)

Dip mixes are great for Sunday night football! I know these dip mixes will taste delicious in nonfat plain greek yogurt!

Chocolate Caramel Covered Pretzel Rods (Abbie & Ellie Sweets)

As soon as I opened up my package I ate one of these pretzel rods. I just couldn’t resist….the chocolate, caramel, and pretzel combination represent a chocolate lover’s dream. They were gone in two days :/

Cornaby’s Raspberry Jalapeno Sauce

Raspberry Jalapeno Sauce is the perfect blend of sweet and spicy…I will be sure to post what I make with this sauce asap!

Dentyne Ice Gum

I can’t live with out gum…I am being honest! I have at least one piece of gum every day and some days I could go through a whole pack of gum depending on how stressful of a day I may have!

I would say my foodie pen pal did an amazing job finding foodie items I would love! I know I will eat and use all of these foodie items! Thank you Taralyn! You were a great first foodie pen pal!

My costume this year was a little bit of  80’s, disco, and FOXXY!

I will be enjoying a sweet treat and pumpkin beer to celebrate tonight after a much needed treadmill and stair-master workout! =)

My all time favorite Halloween treats are Pumpkin Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Pumpkin Candy Corn

What is your favorite Halloween Treat?!?!?!?!

My favorite pumpkin beer is Schlafly Pumpkin Ale
