I recently discovered a new subscription box called Try the World. The premise is really interesting- every two months you receive a box with at least seven food items. Each box is curated with a new city or country in mind, so you get to try new foods from around the world. It seems a little pricey at $39 per box (plus small discounts if you purchase 6 or 12 month subscriptions) but it sounded like so much fun that I wanted to try it. I was able to get my first box at a discount (and you can use my referral link here to get $15 off your first box) and I was so excited to get the Paris Box in the mail!
Each box comes in a beautiful Tiffany blue box and it includes a Culture Guide that tells you about the country and their food. The box also includes a handy card that tells you a little about the products you received. I was happy to see my box filled to the brim with tasty goodies. This box was nice and heavy and everything felt very luxe- exactly what I would expect for how much it costs.
My first product was Saunier de Camargue’s Fleur de Sel. I really like finishing salts but I don’t have any fleur de sel so I was really happy to see this in my box. It’s a good size that will last me quite a while. I was surprised by how fresh this salt smelled- it smells just like the ocean! I’m going to enjoy sprinkling this on everything I make from now on.
Next was La Maison d-Armorine’s Veritables Caramels Tendres au Berre Sale. These salted butter soft caramels have a very deep and rich flavor. These are a great little treat and I love that they were included.
I also received Peche-Abricot Jam from Charles Antonia. Growing up, I was never really a fan of jams or jellies but now I like them in moderation. I think this peach-apricot jam will be really good on a grilled brie sandwich.
My fourth product was another sweet treat- La Mere Poulard’s Palets Cookies. These were really good and we’ve already eaten them all. These shortbread cookies have a great butter flavor and a nice crunchy-but-not-hard texture.
I also received a large jar of French spices. This herb blend from Un Brin Sauvage is perfect for seasoning fish, meat, and vegetables, and it’s made with organically grown herbs. Plus, it smells really good. I can’t wait to try this out.
For the most part, I really like the products I received in my Try the World Paris Box. Besides the mustard, I will use everything and I love the items I’ve tried so far. Although this subscription box is a little pricey, I think it’s such a fun concept and I liked getting this in the mail. For now I’m going to keep my subscription and I can’t wait to see what country’s food I get to sample next!
