There are so many product subscription boxes out there, but this one is truly unique, so I am so excited to share it! It’s called Try The World and it is a gourmet food subscription box that allows you to try different yummy food items from around the world every 2 months.
I’m definitely one of those people who rarely strays from my comfort zone when it comes to food. I’m not very adventurous and frankly have no idea what to even look for when browsing international products. Boring? Definitely. With this box though, I am able to get some hand selected items sent to me to try so I can see if I like them and to open up my narrow knowledge of food.
When I received my first box, I was totally blown away by the packaging. It spoke to my little designer heart so well! Seriously, I raved about this packaging to everyone who saw the box and gave them demonstrations of me opening it, haha. The inside of the cardboard shipping box is covered in these cute little hot air balloons and opens up like a flower to reveal another bright turquoise box inside.
Once you open the lid, there is a great assortment of goodies waiting for you to explore. Each box comes with this awesome little booklet that tells you all about your monthly country’s culture and cuisine. My box was the Paris box, and this booklet covered everything from the food to suggestions of music I should listen to and movies I should watch if I want to get into the Parisian mood. Once again, excellently designed!
The items inside are sourced by country specific local chefs who are experts on the local cuisine. They range from items you can cook with to little sweet treats that you might not otherwise have an opportunity to try. I received some black cherry jam, dijon mustard, almond spread, tea, caramels, sea salt, and a cookie-like treat!
This box was truly a delight to receive and opening it felt special! It’s been so fun trying all of the different items with Dustin (who, by the way, nearly tore into those caramels before I had a chance to photograph everything)! It would make such an awesome gift for someone you know or simply as a way to introduce yourself to international foods.
