Foodie Penpals # 2

The Lean Green Bean

September was my second month at Foodie Penpals I’m really enjoying it so far and think it’s an excellent idea for trying out new foods plus making online friends etc.
I sent a box of treats to Catherine in York and yet again I forgot to take a photo prior to sending (oh well maybe next time).
My box came all the way from Lithuania so yet again I knew it would be completely new things that I had never tried. The box was sent from Ausra, who does not have a blog but will be reading mine (hopefully) so a big thank you. I absolutely love my September box.

Well as you can see: there are so many wonderful treats inside that I did not know where to begin. The labels aren’t in English but luckily Ausra sent a card explaining everything and here’s what I got.

  • Linas bites- these are like pieces of fudge with flax seeds and just delicious
  • Riduto- flat breads with poppy and sesame seeds
  • Smaliziams – cinammon snack bites, great for snacks or breakfast
  • Drazee – sugar coated almonds
  • Poesia – lovely little cakes with cherry and ginger
  • Pergale – Dark Chocolate with mango bar
  • Sarlote – lovely chocolate bar with caramel
  • finally last but by no means least a box of AJ chocolates which was like a box in a box containing a selection of handmade chocolates from a local chocolate producer in Lithuanua. These were delicious and each with their own flavour

    My box was well packaged and everything survived the long trip from Lithuania. We are all enjoying our Lithuanian snacks. There was so much in my box and my children are happily helping me to enjoy it too.

      Great box – I love the variety of European boxes, it’s like travelling without the hassle of plane delays. What was your favourite?

        Oh it’s hard to decide as they all good. Probably the little box of chocolates.
