Required in the package is also a note, and in it Judy explained why she sent each of these items. I haven't tried the cheese spread yet, and I couldn't find a picture to include the chocolate peppermint pretzel in the collage.
My favorite item in the box would have been the voodoo chips. The flavor is really unique and is kind of a mix of sweet and sour. I wish I could come up with a better way to describe them. The flavor is a New Orleans kettle style, so it has a bit of a cajun flair.
The snapea crisps were good too, although they confused me. I couldn't decide if there were real peas in them. They were baked but super greasy, and I never did decide on the presence of a pea. I kept eating them, though, so I definitely did like them.
I like sriracha sauce already, and I'm actually glad Judy sent it because I left an open bottle on the counter and need to throw it out.
The whisk was such a fun addition, and he will go to good use. It actually matches a little omelette skilled I bought at BB&B on one of our many wedding jaunts.
The two sweet items, the caramel wafer and the chocolate peppermint pretzel, were both good. I didn't like the pretzel as much, because the chocolate was really dark and overpowering. The wafer was yummy, as it tasted like a waffle cone with caramel in the middle. Because it was high in calories I didn't eat both of them in the package.
The whole point of the swap is to meet new people and find new foods you wouldn't try yourself. Some people get local items, others get homemade (although you can tell your partner if you'd prefer not to have homemade), and I've seen so many varying packages. This was my first month to participate, but I'll definitely be doing it again. Lindsay doesn't have it for December, as she suggests the $15 you would spend on your box be sent to charity instead, but she'll have it back up and running if you want to jump in in January.
Have you done the FPP program? If you're jumping over from the linkup, what was your favorite item that you received? If you've never heard of it, is it something you would consider?
