Foodie Penpals 2: The Spicy Edition



Another month, another lovely Foodie Penpal package! This month’s package comes from the lovely Susie Nunn at

This month I was lucky enough to receive:

  1. Montezuma’s Sea Salt and Lime Chocolate – which disappeared at speed!
  2. Spicy Cajun Style Beans – I am addicted to Wasabi peas, so these were pretty much a perfect choice; slightly spicy and packed full of flavour. These have been forming my morning snacks so far this week 🙂
  3. Dried mango – wonderful stuff! Sweet, chewy and good for you 🙂
  4. Smoked Birds Eye Chillis – the package says these things pack at 8/10 on the heat scale, and they really weren’t kidding! I put half a chilli into an aubergine dish over the weekend both my OH and I (whimps that we are) were finding it really quite hot, but the smokey flavours from the chilli worked so well with the aubergine.

So, thanks Susie! Awesome selection 🙂

If you’re interested in signing up for the Foodie Penpal UK scheme organised by the fabulous Carol Ann Grady please see: (There will also be links for the USA/Canada group there too, I believe)

  1. Great parcel! Smoked chili and aubergine sounds like an amazing combo. I would ask for a wee correction, if I may? The US and Canada group is at The Lean Green Bean, but the UK and Euro group has its home at Rock Salt –

    This looks like such an imaginative and scrummy idea – I will definitely check it out!
