A few weeks ago I joined a vegan swap box group on FB and it has been AMAZING so far. If you aren’t familiar, basically you ask if anyone wants to do a swap (generally you mention what country you are in) and then if anyone take you up, a dollar amount is agreed upon, allergies or food preferences are discussed, and then you set about filling a box with goodies for the other person. I’ve sent packages to Scotland and England, and so far two boxes have made their way here (two more are in transit).
All 4 of us (Mike, the kids, and myself) sit down and taste all the things we’ve received and it’s been super fun. A great experience for the kids to try snacks from other counties, and a neat way to connect with other parts of the world. It’s like having a pen pal but with food involved!
It’s addictive as well! I’m currently putting together my 5th swap box, and then I think I need to take a brief break because the postage part gets costly. However, I look forward to doing many more swaps in the future 😀
