Foodie Penpals, Part 2

First of all I have to apologize to my foodie penpal, Kristen for not having posted this sooner.  I’m so sorry Kristen!!  I tend to become the laziest person on the planet during school breaks.  I’ve literally done nothing but watch trashy TV shows the past couple of weeks and hang out on the sofa.  The lack of a proper routine makes me so lazy and I apologize!!

Anyway on to my foodie penpal!

Kristen lives in Japan and she sent me some Japanese goodies!  Because of the shipping distance I didn’t get the package until the day that foodie penpal posts were due to go up.  It was totally worth the wait though because Kristen sent me some awesome goodies!!

Here’s what I got…

A postcard from Okinawa, Japan- it’s where she lives.  It’s absolutely gorgeous!


The spicy…

I told Kristen how much I loved spicy stuff and she totally hooked me up!

Hot sauce!!  Kristen was also kind enough to label everything for me since it was all in Japanese.  This stuff is hottttt!!



A spicy seasoning.  This stuff is absolutely amazing!  I am almost out of it already so I need to figure out how to get more!  I’ve sprinkled it on kale chips, oven fries, and beans so far.  Love this stuff!!!


The sweet…



These little guys looked a lot like goldfish crackers, but they were filled with CHOCOLATE!!  Can’t go wrong there- they were so delicious!!!


Pocky!  I’ve had pocky before but never the strawberry flavor- delish!


That dark chocolate with Chili was amazing too- the perfect amount of spicyness with the dark chocolate.  mmmmm!

The savory…


Veggie chipssss!

Such a cute package!



Sweet potato chips!


My absolute favorite thing in the package (actually it’s a tie between this and the spicy seasoning).  Habanero chips!!  These things were so amazing!!  I’m not going to lie I devoured this entire bag in one sitting.  Spicy, crunchy, salty.  All of my favorite things!  I wouldn’t mind too much if you wanted to send me more of these!



I absolutely can’t say how much I loved my foodie penpal package this month- thank you so so much Kristen!!!!!  Sorry again that I was such an awful slacker about posting!

Check out what I sent my penpal here.

  1. omg how fun!!!! i took japanese in college so i’m a sucker for fun japanese snacks!

  2. Hey Sarah! I’m sooooo glad you liked everything! That is so funny that you are almost out of the spicy seasoning 🙂 I’m excited you liked the Habanero chips too because I was nervous they wouldn’t be good. Maybe I’ll have to send you a follow up package 🙂

  3. Healthy snacks all the way from Japan…too cool!!!

  4. What an awesome package!

    Japan is on my “must-visit” list. I just went to Southeast Asia and flew through the Tokyo airport, and I have to say that even the airport food there looked so much better than most of the food I saw on land in the rest of my travels.

    Those Habenero chips sound AWESOME! I love the evil looking pepper on the packaging 🙂


  1. […] out what I sent my Foodie Pen Pal, Sarah, last month by stopping by her blog, Sarah Snacks. Since the package came from Japan, it took a while to get to her, but luckily she loved everything […]
