March came with some great surprises from my pen pal Brianne Kilkpatrick and she did an amazing job! As you may guess, these last few months haven’t been easy so the timing of this package was perfect, before the day we even had to ship it! OMG! Thank you Brianne!
I have to tell you that when that Priority Mail package comes in, I am the happiest girl in the world! I love that box. It is my Christmas, with all the exciting goodies that might come in the box and this month was no different. Brianne did a great job!
She satisfied mine and Brittany’s sweet tooth, Zachary too! This was a yummy package that I have thoroughly enjoyed!
As you can see, we LOVED these! I have to get some more of them and I think that as far as Weight Watchers points, they were only like 1 or 2PP per serving. The only problem with it was that each serving was one piece. That’s okay. I ate them and truly enjoyed them. They looked like they were going to be a little crispier than they were but they were soft and chewy and oh so yummy! Brittany and I ate them up by the handful! Oh my!
I love anything bars, chocolate, granola, anything and these didn’t disappoint either. The chocolate truffle candy bar was yummy! I love truffle. Quest Bars are so good and this one was chewy and chocolaty and super tasty. The Cinnamon Pecan Protein Simply Bar smelled amazing but wasn’t as tasty as I thought it was going to be. The smell promised more taste than there actually was.
Plaintain chips are a great little snack and was happy to have these.
The last two things in the package were my favorite thing and something that I did try though with much trepidation. I am not a big spicy person so the Wasabi Peas were not one of my favorites. I do have a friend that I believe will love them and am sending them off to her.
Lastly, my favorite thing in the package. I have been looking at this myself for months to send to a foodie pen pal at Trader Joe’s and now I am going to have to get some and send it to someone. Oh my! This on a piece of toast with some butter, it just drips off the side and on to the plate. Brittany and I have enjoyed this so much. Strangely, Zachary isn’t as much of a fan of it as I thought he would but apparantly he’s a bit nuts because this stuff is so good! With a little bit of Fluff too. Again, I must just say Oh My!!
Thank you Brianne! This was perfect!
