Comment: What an absolutely fantastic package! I am so lucky and so spoilt, thankyou! I loved EVERYTHING, all of it. I have wanted some cat washi tape for a long time and will think of you when I use it and the other goodies you sent. The stitched card is gorgeous, too! A well deserved heart. Thankyou for making my day. All the best and a very merry early Christmas to you, too! Tracy
Response: You're VERY welcome. I hope you have a Merry Christmas too! ^^
Comment: Omg I am so happy and lucky I was your partner. My son extremely loved seeing your box and unwrapping everything. Am trying to save as much as I can but sure I will love everything. True the chokis do look like chips ahoy and kinda taste like them. Thank you for joining my swap.
Comment: What a wonderful surprise in my mailbox! That is the good thing when you forget about a swap! Thank you so much for all that you send, and for the time and effort of a resend. I am so glad you did!
Comment: Thank you SO much for the beautiful packages and card! I loved everything you sent and appreciate that you read my profile so closely and included all of my favorite things! So kind of you. I am very, very happy! Merry Christmas♥️♥️
Comment: THANK YOU! I just found a package in my mailbox filled with yummy things. I don't know what to say...
My furry little babies says thank you for thinking of them too. They love "temptations", so you're definitely popular among them too by now :)
Thank you so much once again for all the things you sent. And thanks for swapping with me.
All the best! <3
Comment: Oh these are really really fun!!! Thank you for sharing so many with me! I love the birds! Chocolate, dots, everything. And Snoopy labels!!! OMG! I loooooove them! You rock! US Customs opened this! I really wonder what they thought they’d find - and must’ve wondered about these envelopes, ha ha! Thanks so much for such a generous swap. I appreciate it all a lot! xoxo
Comment: I LOVE EVERYTHING. My son Arin can also enjoy the treats since there easy to eat. He loved the bon bon and the frog. Arin can have the atomic wheat for breakfast. It was like Christmas. I love how you wrap everything up. This has been the best swap I got this year and last year. You are truly wonderful. True stuff seem to change so much from our childhood to this day and age sadly. I feel it’s better in our childhood more. Even McDonald’s chicken dougets sauces changed so much :(. My favourite from what you sent is Chaplin the cookies are super good. I find South America chocolate is less sweet then in North America. It’s a like/dislike thing but helps for not gulping it all down lol. I also like sublime, milo, lentejas, kiwi/ocos, princess. Your right it would be better with the peanut butter cream. I always wanted to try milo and now I can. Thank you for everything.
Response: <3 You're very welcome. I love it when I make my partner happy. :)
Comment: Thank you for this wonderful washi-mini-pocket-letter! I love the idea to create a background with different tapes that fit together. And I thought "Aaaawwww..... Washi with glitter looks so amazing! Wish I had something like that, too..." Before I realized that you made the glitter details yourself! This is awesome! Sorry, but I have to steal this idea... It is just too good! :D
And thank you so much for the goodies and extras! I love the papers and all the washi! My favourits are those with the french dachshund and with the polar bears... :) Thank you so, so much!!!!
Response: I'm so glad you liked them! I had lots of fun with the swap - and that washi tape theme did push me to think outside the box. I'm super happy you loved everything. :D
Comment: I can't believe I was lucky enough to get you as my partner in this local goodies swap again! I absolutely LOVE how you tell me more about traditional crafts in your country, where you bought your gifts and what these local shops sell! Your packages are always like a little travel trip in a box. The soap made of oats smells incredible! It is almost too nice to actually use. ;) The two keychains are adorable (I could rescue the llama from my cat Cooper who tought this is the best cat toy ever! LOL) All the sweets and the teas you sent look absolutely delicious. I can't decide what to try first! ;) Last but not least the little painting you sent me is sooooooo beautiful!!! I love the colours. I will frame it and hang it on my wall next to my screen so I can look at it all the time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this incredible package (and also for taking time to wrap everything so beautifully!)! I really really appreciate it!!! <3
Response: You're very welcome :3. My own little tabby loves the llama keychains. I think they believe they're little rodents they can hunt at their heart's content
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely pocket letter and the chocolate! What a wonderful surprise. I love the colors you chose and the extras you included also. Your stamps are adorable (the envelope was so cute!!). Happy new year!! :)
Comment: Oh I love the card and all the surprises you sent!!! Really made me smile on a day I needed it most! Thank you very much! I hope you enjoyed a lovely Christmas and I wish you a Happy New Year. XOXO
Comment: Thank you so much for the lovely box. You have wrapped everything so nice and I can't wait to try all the yummy food. It is my first swap ever from Peru and I am so excited about it.
In Germany Halloween is not a big holiday but it became more popular in the last years. Not many houses are decorated and we do not have many Halloween related sweets. But some kids do trick or treating and therr are some Halloween partys for adults in some clubs/bars.
Comment: Wow!! Your parcel arrived yesterday, just before Ella's birthday. Everything was wrapped so colourfully - it was such a treat to see her eyes so wide with excitement. We've been allowed to try your favourite toffees so far and the white pecan sweets - love how they're wrapped. Can't wait to try the rest. Thank you so much for making it such an extra special swap.
Comment: Thank you so much for this wonderful package! I can see you put alot of effort and thought into it! I love the beautiful bracelets you sent me! They are totally my style! Unfortunately the keychain did not make it. I'm not sure what happened. The package was checked at customs in Germany. Maybe it fell out there or the type of wood that was used has some import restrictions. Anyhow your snacks made it and they are absolutely delicous! I'm very excited I received such amazing gifts! Thank you so much! :)
Comment: Thank you so much for this awesome swap Victoria! It is so rare to get mail from Peru, yet this wonderful mail! I can't wait to try the drinks and candies you included. I have never seen such. ðŸ˜ŠðŸŒ¼ Thanks! â¤ï¸
Comment: So many yummy-looking things! We tried the dona pepa cookies - so crunchy with all the candy dots on there. And the Inka Corn was a lot like Corn Nuts we have here, but with much bigger kernals. The herb one was super tasty. I'll let you know more when we eat more. Thanks so much!
Comment: I actually forgot that I didn't receive the swap, but Victoria was very nice to send a message to check on it. Alas, the package went missing and she had to redeliver. The second package went missing AGAIN, but she was still sweet enough to resend a third time. Really appreciate all her effort and money that went into this. I loved everything in the package and I'm so happy :) Swapbot needs more swappers like you!
Comment: Thank you SO much for all the goodies I found today when I came back from a long summer break. It totally sweetened my day :) Loved to read about those special Peruvian treats, it's so special.
Comment: Thank you for the VERY generous berry package! I love how you always wrap things up so they feel like such a gift. :-) The strawberry napkins are so cute, and there are many fun fruity foods to try. The bars are very interesting--so different from available flavors here. Thank you!
Comment: Thank you SO much for this swap, Alex! You were way beyond generous, and everything was so nicely wrapped!!! My daughter especially was fascinated with the things you sent and wanted to taste everything, of course! I appreciate your thoughtfulness!
Comment: Oh my gosh, Alex, that chocolate was AMAZING! It was so rich and chocolatey - yum!! The cookies were also very good. I love chocolate and coffee flavors together (even though I don't drink coffee). The Peruvian ornament is delightful! Thank you so much for sharing some of your favorite things with me - you have excellent taste! =)
Response: I'm glad you liked everything - chocolate and coffee are my secret addiction, so I was very eager to share them with you. ^^
Comment: Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness! I love my package so much, Alex! The handmade felt kitties are super adorable. I made the mistake of opening them with my cats near and Poe has already ran off with one and hidden it, but I'm sure it will turn up. The other two I have put away safely. Thank you for such a wonderful swap. I especially love the felt Mini with her bird. I wish I could give you even more hearts! <3 <3 <3
Response: lol. Glad you and Poe enjoyed the kitties. ;)
Comment: So sorry for the delayed rating! So much good stuff in this I'm actually gonna come back to write more. Everything individually wrapped and I even loved the retro flowery notecard. Viva Senor Maiz!
Comment: Omg.. I loved your package! Thanks for all the snacks and especially for the extra blind bag (the bouncy zombies are too cute!).. lol. I loved everything-- especially the chocolate covered dried fruits! And I didn't know they have milo in Peru too! Hahahah.. I guess the only difference is that we have a ready made version too where you just need to add water.. Oh and I can't wait to try the other drink sachets!! They look fun & yummy :D :D
Response: lol. I didn't know there was a MIlo that only required water. I used to eat the stuff right out of the can when I was a kid. Actually, I didn't like the drink itself. I'm glad you liked it so much. :3
Comment: Thank you for the beautifully packaged swap! I can't eat all of the snacks because I have a gluten intolerance (not as bad as being a celiac, I can still have a bite of each :P my fault for not writing it down in the comments!) but I will taste all and pass the cookies to my husband :)
Comment: I love the tasty treats, and I can't wait to make the flan! These all are wonderful with a 4pm cup of tea- thank you so much and the new post office sent your cute yellow package much better than the old post office ;- }
Response: I'm glad this one arrived safe and sound. I love eating the flan with chocolate sauce. xD Everything's better with chocolate.
Comment: I always enjoy your thoughtful swaps! I had missed the Sacha inchi nuts and am excited to try the new treats you included. You are so generous to have included the perfectly-packaged, sunny yellow items too. Thank you!!!
Comment: I received your box from Miami just now- thank you very much! The first thing I tasted was the "Bon O Bon", in the yellow wrapper. Surprisingly crispy! I love everything, you are very kind to go to so much effort.
Response: You're very welcome. I'm SO glad it finally made it there. Whew! And I am changing to another post office!
Comment: Wow! You had me nibbling on my bed last night when I opened my package!!! LOL!! I have tried the corn chips....OMG!! Best ever. Ate them slowly for I wanted to savor every flavor!!! LOL!! Never seen them here so that was a joy. Also thanks for all the chocs...saving them for a special night on my bed! Thanks for sending a superb package!!! Am I glad I got you as a partner!!! Hugs!!
Comment: Hi, thank you so much for your wonderful package! I enjoyed some snacks already and they are very good! Thank you also for the information about Turron de Dona Pepa. I might bake it someday at home. :)
Comment: Oh wow! This is amazing!!! Such a lovely package and everything is wrapped beautifully. Thank you so much for including something for my husband and daughter and SO much stuff for me to enjoy. One the best packages I've received so far xxxxxx
Comment: Thank you so, so much for the excellent package! I can't believe you wrapped **everything!** I'm very curious about the lime- and corn-flavored mixes; are they for... drinking? Puddings? Neat.
Response: You're welcome. The mixes are for drinking - you can add sugar if you wish, but they already have sugar added. ;)
Comment: Thank you for another awesome Peruvian swap. You always package and label everything so wonderfully! The kids are excited to see the sweet stuff you sent. I'll share everything...except the castaÃ±a and coco caramels. ;-)
Comment: I adore the keychain. I love the way you thought outside the box on the letters. I enjoyed reading your note. We haven't had much snow, but lots of cold weather lately. Thank you so much for the wonderful swap.
Comment: Thank you so much for such a thoughtful package!!! I love all the bookmarks, and the envies and cards too! and the tasty treats were amazing... I got soooo spoiled, LOL! Thank you, thank you, thank you! :-D
Comment: Alex, thank you so much for these lovely treats! My family and I each had one of the caramel filled bars and loved them! We are saving the rest for special treats here and there. Thanks again!!
Comment: OH, YUM!!! Thank you so much, Alex! The box arrived today and I've already inhaled a package of chili and lemon corn nuts - so delicious. I thought about sharing the treats with my co-workers but then decided, "Nope! It's all mine!" =)
Comment: Thank you so much for the wonderful envelope of goodies. I really like the notecards you made as well as the magnetic bookmark and the 2 bags. I am sure the eeyore stickers will be happily used to brighten my mailings and the larger notecards are great. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness. Happy Swapping.
Comment: What a package! :) The teabag wrappers look great, and I'm eager to taste your favourite tea, it sounds very good, and also earl grey. :) Are the little packages some kind of nougat sweets? Thank you very much for your generous swap! :)
Comment: Alexandra, thank you so much for your wonderful package! I loved everything for sure :) I have Peruvians friends and coworkers here in Japan and I love home made alfajor, I tried to make them myself but I was not successful :( My friend went to Araquipa and she brought me some La Iberica chocolate toffees and I was so happy when I saw that you sent me candies from there too! Peru is definitely a country that I want to visit when I'll be back in Brazil ;) hugs and have a great and happy week
Comment: All I can say is nom, nom, nom, hearts, hearts, hearts! ;-) Thank you for another delicious, thoughtful, generous package! The kids and I really enjoyed sampling some of your local treats. I wouldn't have thought of crackers and other savory baked goods, but I SO enjoyed them too!
Comment: Oooh what a lovely, great swap! Perfect moment to recieve it and cheer me up. I loved the sweet card you wrote, thank you so much! And the baggies are just beautiful. And everything else, too. When Sergio got up we randomly picked a good thought and it really gave us strenghts :) Thank you for everything and for being a friend!
Comment: Wow! Chocolate, Johnny Depp and Alice in Wonderland are three of my favorite things too!! Thank you so much, Alex. The boxes you made are so adorable and the chocolate from Peru is amazing! Great swap, hon! xxxooo
Response: I'm so glad you liked everything. The Cheshire cat is one of my favorite characters of all time.
Comment: Wow! That's one yummie package! Thank you so much. Everything looks really delicious and interesting. My package is on it's way too, but I am not sure it will arrive as quickly as your package did. Thanks again!
Comment: This was another fabulous swap from one of my favorite swap partners. Thank you for sending all of the yummy treats. Mmmmm. The flowers were so cute; my daughter asked if she could keep them to display in her room. Thank you for this very thoughtful swap!
Comment: I absolutely LOVE these adorable little cat toys you made for Simone. As soon as I opened your package, I called her and she came right away and started playing with all of them. She's already carried them off and stashed them in different spots. Oh, and the chocolates were lovely, too. They helped me through doing my taxes. Thanks!
Comment: Yum yum! I already fell for the unhealthy snacks - the eggs are so good - but the cookies will be my breakfast for tomorrow. Thank you so much for another great swap - and a great packaging, too! :)
Comment: What an EXTREMELY wonderful package! I can't believe how much stuff you've sent me, thank you SO much! :) I thought we made nice cookies/candy in Holland, but you Peruvians make them extremely good!!!! wow..!!!!
Comment: Thank you so much for my fun package. The felt heart magnets are so very cute and are decorating our fridge. I didn't want to tear the paper hearts but mmmmmm chocolate! Lovely package. Thanks!
Comment: Thank you so much for the THREE great crackers. The kids and I each got to crack one open. We're sharing all the yummy goodies...except for the round coconut chocolate. I took care of that! ;-) Thank you & happy 2012!
Comment: Thanks you so much for such a wonderful collection of goodies! I love the decorated tins. And the chocolates and spices are wonderful. I'll be enjoying all of it immensely. I've been wanting to try chimichuri sauce for awhile so that one will be the very first one I use. Thank you!
Comment: This swap took my breath away, Alex! I really, really love the Peruvian things, especially the ornaments and blanket, which I'm using as a tablecloth in my entryway. The kids felt so special that you sent them gifts too! A thousand thanks!
Response: ;) Seems like you needed the pick-me-up. Merry Christmas. :)
Comment: Thank you for another sweet swap! It arrived in time for Halloween, and the spooky spider decoration is fun! The candies are yummy, and the kids thank you for sending such cute little baskets of candies for them. :-)
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful themed baggie! Everything was profile based and I especially loved the Kawaii pens and the Kawaii mini clipboard with the writing pad and stickers! The owl keychain was great as well! :-) â™¥â™¥â™¥
Comment: Your packages are always so special and even decorated to theme. Thank you! How exciting to get two different packages of ice cream toppings! The kids can't wait for an ice cream night. Yum, yum. THANKS!
Comment: Thank you, thank you, and thank you some more. I really love the healthy snacks you sent - especially the dried fruit. Everything else looks good too though and since I love plain yogurt in the morning with fruit & some granola type cereal in it, I will have to try the granola cookie addition. I also loved your note (yes, sometimes chocolate desserts do seem to get in they way (or rather in my mouth) at times too. Your snack ideas sound good - definitely am going to try the sweet baked apple and the cup of fruit blended with milk for a milkshake. Great ideas!
Comment: Wow my green bag was wonderful! Thank you for putting so many fun things inside...everybody in the family had a good time looking and tasting. Madison really liked the green donkey tags and letter stickers!
Response: I'm glad so many people enjoyed the swap. :3 My pleasure.
Comment: thank you so much for the awesome package! i love the pepper towel and ovenmitt! the cookies are delicious! and i can't wait to make the masa mora and the soup! yumm! and thank you for the postcards too! i love it all!
Comment: Yippee! Now that's a lot of sacha inchi nuts; I couldn't be happier! The shopping bags are awesome. The sauces will be fun to try, and the caramels were such a nice treat. Thank you again for your generosity!
Comment: I got my package from the post office yesterday - thank you so much for the lovely letter and the fantastic art supplies. I am almost out of glitter glue and that will come in handy. I am a fan of Faber-Castell pencils and I'm thrilled it has a sharpener (they're never there when you need them, right?!) I am especially looking forward to using those neat pens - lots of fun coming my way! Thanks again!
Comment: Thank you, thank you, thank you for such a wonderful box of goodies! I can't wait to try everything. The chocolate is amazing and I really enjoyed the information you included too. It was all perfect, thanks again!

Comment: Thank you for another fabulous package! Everything in blue was so much fun to open. You are always so sweet to send things that the children will enjoy too. Thank you very much for your thoughtfulness!
Comment: Wonderful - thank you so much! I love Peruvian handcrafts. I have some woven things and pottery and beads that I have collected over the years. I wish I could find more but there isn't much in this area, everything imported is Asian. There is a Peruvian food booth at our farmers market, though, yummy!
Comment: Whoops; I missed rating the second swap in the package. Thank you SO much for this great swap! Packages from you are so very special! I will make the hibiscus tea very soon. I have never seen anything like the toothpick toppers. They are AWESOME! Thank you again for your thoughtfulness. :-)
Comment: Wow! One heart isn't nearly enough to thank you for this AMAZING package! The sacha inchi nuts are always such a treat, and the marzipan was such a surprise. It was soooo sweet of you to send packages for the kids. I'll treasure the handmade notebook, and it was all so thoughtfully assembled. THANK YOU!
Comment: Just got your swap! What wonderful looking treats you sent and the packaging was super clever. I can't wait to try it all. I'm excited to see so many treats specific to South America and Peru. Thanks so much. Hugs, Shayla
Comment: just got your package and i love everything inside ! the envelope looks really cute too :) it's a pity that i've already brushed my teeth before opening up the package, else i would be munching on the awesome treats that you have sent =p ~~~
once again, thank you ! and i'll be sure to put the ribbons to good use ^^
Comment: Thank you for all the Peruvian goodies! You are so generous! The key chain is adorable, the soap divine, love the llama pen, the origami papers are beautiful and the fruit bars are intensely interesting! The stamps on the envie are going to find their way onto something very soon...so colorful!
Comment: Eeeeeee! You send the best swaps! Thank you so much for the Easter treats. My kids took the Kinder eggs and loved them. My favorites are the coconut caramels and the beautiful pouch. Thank you for your thoughtfulness! :-)
Response: I'm so glad you all enjoyed the swap. I had a feeling they'd like the eggs- my nephews love them. :)
Comment: Wow, Tatsu, I love this package! It's nice to read the letter and know that you enjoyed this one when you were a child, and that one is traditional for October... I will enjoy these Peruvian treats one at a time with my evening tea. And, I have some lovely recipes from you that I plan to cook with my daughter at Christmastime, I'll let you know how they turn out!
Response: ooh. Do tell me how they turn out! I do hope you like all the treats.
Comment: This swap was absolutely breath taking! Thank you SO much for the care you took in assembling the package. My children were thrilled to have their own surprises to open. I loved every single thing you included. I can't tell you how appreciative I am of you sending such a fabulous package. THANK YOU!!!
Response: My pleasure. :) I'm still looking for Shakespear's the Tempesti n spanish. I really wanted to send you the book.
I think your package just got here, but it's stuff at the post office.
Comment: THANK YOU SO SO SO SO SO SO SO MUCH!!! What a fun package!! One of the best I've received, all the little envelopes, the care and thought you put into this swap were apparent. Hearts! Hearts! Hearts! :o)
Response: I'm glad you liked them. Origami does come in useful for swap-bot. :)
Comment: Your parcel is the best collection of stuff I have received since joining Swap-bot. Others have said the following to me but you are the first to whom I exclaim: I wish that I could reward you with more hearts. It was a fun and cool parcel (my first) from Peru. Thank you very much!!!
Response: lol. I hope you get more super cool parcels in the future. I'm glad you liked it. :)
Comment: Love the book corners, Victoria!! The bees are so cute and I love that gorgeous blue mother of pearl paper!! I've already put them to good use in what I'm currently reading...and will think of you! Thanks for sending them to me! Sue
Response: Aww. Thank you. I'm so glad you liked them
Comment: Wonderful package...loved the way it was presented and the goodies inside...wow! If I could give you more than one heart I would....thank-you so much! I can't wait to indulge in all the yummies you sent!
Response: If you like any in particular, IÂ´d be happy to do a private swap with you. IÂ´m happy you liked the presentation.
Comment: WOW....3 cupcake ATCs...I love them. They are great. The foam lion stayed on the outside of the envelope all the way here...amazing. I love the little charm too. Thanks so much for everything. Many hearts to you. This package definitely brightened up my day. Take Care. Happy Swapping. Angela
Response: Hehehe. Those ATCs were fun to do. Hope you have a sunny summer!
Comment: The box of little things you sent is wonderful! Thanks so much! The box itself is so clever... you made a fish bowl!! I'm going to hang it up in my window! And... ELEPHANT beads! *happy dance*
Comment: Thank you for your ATCs. They were fun and I really liked the little story about them you enclosed. Thank you for the chocolate, and please, don't think I'm trying to be rude or yell at you, but it was melted all over inside the envelope. I appreciate extras, and it was very nice of you, but it may be a good idea to put chocolate in a little baggy, as well as ATCs. Thanks again for the creative ATCs! :-)
Response: O.o oops. Sorry. Since it's starting to cool down over here, I forgot to put them in a bag. If the ATCs were ruined, please tell me and I'll be happy to send two ATCs from my stash.
Comment: Thank you **SO** much for the wonderful Easter package I received today. I love everything and if I could give you more hearts I would. I can tell you really put a lot of thought into this package and I truly appreciate it. Many hugs, my friend. :)
Response: You're welcome. I had quite a bit of fun decorating the box. The post office also had a blast with it too. XD Thanks.
Comment: Ohhhhhh I love all the unique purple items you sent!!! I have been drooling over everything that you sent all day long. I promptly showed hubby when he got home & he is already trying to steal the treats! And he asked if he could take them to work to show them off ~ he was a Geography major so they all get a kick out of stuff from other countries, lol! Anyway I can't thank you enough! <3
Response: Glad you liked them. The purple corn chips sound a bit odd, even for me. My aunt has tried them though and she said they were pretty good with any dip.
Comment: Wow!! The Batman ATCs are amazing!! I loved the Batman belt that you packaged the items in. That is so creative! You even put bats on the tap that sealed the package. I wish I could leave you many hearts. I used to have a crush on Robin from the 60s reruns when I was growing up. :)
Response: I am glad you liked them. I really liked Robin too, so I gave this swap a little extra effort.
