I grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, and was pretty surprised to see the 47401 in my Food Penpal box’s return address. But it turns out Laura also grew up there & recently returned to pursue a degree in anthropology (coincidentally, that + sociology was my undergraduate major).
Laura put together a fun bunch of goodies from Trader Joe’s – Belgian cookies, a chocolate bar, trail mix and some salsa that was clearly tuned into the tomatillo-salsa kick I’ve been on lately.
She also packed some Hoosier eats straight out of Monroe County – cereal from Vigilant Eats, and toasted-oat granola from Muddy Fork Farm & Bakery. It’s been over a decade since I’ve been back to B-town, so I’m not familiar with either of these outfits, but I’m glad Laura has gotten me acquainted with them!
