FPP October!

For some reason this did not post when it was supposed to...Guess I goofed something up!

This month was another awesome FPP month! My package came from Melissa at redwhiteandblueberries.com and it was awesome! I'd also encourage you to check out her website, which is one that I'll be visiting often! I've already spotted a few recipes that I MUST try! That's one of the things I love about FPP... Getting to connect with people from all over the country and visiting new blogs! Fun, fun, and more fun! As usual, check out theleangreenbean.com for more info on FPP and to join in the fun! 

My favorite items were probably the two small bags of popcorn from Cornucopia Popcorn. Those were the first items to disappear from the box, fairly quickly I might add! 

Melissa also sent me some goodies from a candy company in Indiana... One I'm actually familiar with; Albanese. I have a few friends (and one ex) who live in that area. It was kind of cool to have that connection with Melissa (as well as the fact that she's also a runner!). In addtion to those goodies, she sent me some cupcake wrappers and sprinkles...Fall themed; I should probably bake some cupcakes soon!! 

I also tried a super yummy dark chocolate fig bar that she sent. It was the second fig bar I've tried, and it was just as yummy as the last one I received. I'm not a huge dark chocolate fan, but the combination was great together! I really need to stock up on some fig bars for snacks. 

She sent a box of tea, which is one of my favorite things - especially this time of year! I love a nice cup of hot, calming tea before bed. Sleepytime tea is perfect!

There are a couple things in the package I've yet to try, but will try soon! Melissa sent me seasnax which is a seaweed snack. Honestly I'm slightly afraid of this one. I mean, it's SEAWEED!!! I scream when that stuff touches my feet... And now I'm going to volunteer to eat it? Yes, that one will take a little effort to try.... Maybe. I recently tried kale chips, which I thought would disgust me and I really liked those. I suppose eating seaweed won't be so bad... It's dry, so it's not like it's straight out of the ocean, all fuzzy and ready to attack me! Humor aside, I'm intriqued and maybe even a bit excited to try the seasnax. 

The other item I haven't tried yet is the barley soup mix, simply because I haven't had time yet. I'll definitely be making that soon and can't wait to try it! It looks so pretty in the box that I almost don't want to open it, but no worries... I will.

I'm super happy (again!) with my package this month and cannot wait to join in the next FPP!! If you haven't checked it out yet, I'd strongly encourage you to do so!!
