Last month I wrote about my Try the World Paris Box. Try the World is a fun food subscription box that uses different cities or countries from around the world as themes for their bimonthly boxes. I really liked the box I got last time although I wasn’t sure it was worth the $39 price tag. I decided to try a few more boxes though because I think the concept is really nice and I love discovering new foods from around the world. My latest box was the Try the World Holiday Box, which was packed with 8 holiday foods that all look amazing.
I love holiday foods in general so I really liked the idea of a box of holiday foods from other countries. My box was full of interesting foods that all look so good, I can’t wait to try them out. I thought this was a really fun theme for this month’s box and I’m glad I continued my subscription. Try the World also included recipes for using the products and a holiday playlist with holiday songs from around the world.
The first item was a pouch of Biokia Kuivattu Marjmix (mixed dried berries) from Finland. I love dried berries in general and I am excited to try different ones like bilberries and lingonberries. I enjoy eating dried berries by themselves but these will also be pretty good in yogurt or mixed with granola.
Next was a box of Chocolate Truffles from Truffette de France. Although the company originally started in France, these truffles are from Quebec. I’ve already tried these and they are so good. The truffles are coated with cocoa powder and they are super rich and decadent. They literally melt in your mouth. I received a pretty big box of these but I know they won’t last for very long, they’re too good to resist.
The Ruby-Red Restorative Winter Calming Tea from Teatonics is imported from the UK. This tea is made with red and green rooibos, hibiscus, cocoa, vanilla, and licorice. It is a relaxing tea that you are supposed to drink before bed. I really like tea so I’m excited to try this.
Nyakers Ginger Snaps are from Sweden, where they are paired with mulled wine and eaten on St. Lucia’s Day in the middle of December. I’m not a huge fan of ginger-flavored foods but I am interested in trying these orange-flavored gingersnaps. This is another good-sized box so I will be able to share these with others.
Next is a small bottle of Sindyanna of Galilee Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Israel. I love olive oil so I’m always happy to have more, although I wasn’t really sure what this was doing in a holiday box until I saw Try the World’s recipe for Almond Olive Oil Cake, a perfect holiday treat.
I’m really excited to try G. Cova & C’s Panettone from Italy. This sweet bread loaf is usually made at home where the head of the house marks it with a cross as a good omen for the coming year. This cake feels really soft and it sounds amazing.
I also received a jar of Bazzar’s Acai Dessert Sauce from Brazil. I saw this in Try the World’s online shop and was eager to try it so I’m really happy it was in this box. This fruity sauce is packed with antioxidants and can be used as a glaze for poultry or poured over ice cream or pancakes.
I’m so happy with my Try the World Holiday Box. I love every item that I received and I can’t wait to try them all out! I think most of the items fit the holiday theme really well. Unlike my Paris box, which was exciting but didn’t “wow” me as much as I would have liked, I’m impressed with this box and feel that it was worth the money. I’m going to continue my subscription for now, I really like the concept of this box and it’s so nice to receive a box of fun treats in the mail!
