I love getting packages. I love giving gifts. I love food. I wonder why it took me so long to join the Foodie PenPal program hosted by the lovely Lindsay!
It’s ok bc it’s never too late to join! What an awesome way to end the month of July by revealing what my first PenPal, Katy, sent me and also by checking out other people’s goodies ;).
I should’ve taken a picture of the box, but I was too eager to open and fish out the surprise that awaited me.
Katy is from New Orleans so she sent me some of her favorites from her hometown. Of course, I’ve had Tony’s Creole seasoning before, but everything else was new to me.
It’s no secret that Zapp’s makes some mean potato chips. However, I’ve never had their Voodoo flavor. It was perfectly crunchy and the flavor was out of this world. It was vinegary, tomatoey, and definitely on the sweeter side. Very unique, that’s for sure! When I was young, whenever I opened up a bag of Lay’s, I always separated the curly chips from the flat ones. I gladly ate the curly ones, which in my opinion are far superior, and graciously
got rid of shared the flat ones with my friends. Apparently, old habits die hard. I’ll be packing the hubby all the flat ones ;).
The hubby was especially ecstatic to see the root beer since he’s quite the aficionado. Made me happy seeing him enjoy it so much!!
The first and last time I went to Louisiana was during my junior year in high school for an orchestra trip. I don’t remember everything, but those beignets I tasted were unforgettable! I haven’t had a decent beignet since then, so I am very eager to try Cafe Du Monde’s Beignet Mix. However, I know that my nursing sister, with her healthy appetite, would surely like to sink her teeth into the doughy pillows. So out of the goodness of my heart, I’m going to save it for the next time I go see her. I’m such a great sister, aren’t I? Or is it because I need something from her? Muhahahhha 😉
Thank you, Katy, once again for sharing a piece of Louisiana with me and my family. Yes, Kona will get to enjoy some too, whether we mean for him to or not ;).
