Disclaimer: I purchased this free trial box (I paid $5 shipping) on my own and have no affiliation with Try The World. This review is based on my opinion of my recent experience with this company.
If you haven’t heard, Try the World is a subscription service that sends you monthly packages that allows you to experience foods and cultural items from cities all across the globe without leaving your house. Their team of travelers and local experts curates a collection of products that best represent each country / city.
Each box includes 7-8 authentic international gourmet items (i.e. cooking ingredients, snacks, and drinks), along with a unique Culture Guide featuring stories behind each product and easy-to-follow recipes. Subscriptions are $39 every month.
Try the World sends out detailed card with product information, including how to use the products along with a history behind them. Here is what was included in the Paris box:
Charles Antona Fruit Jam: These were delicious! I love jam but have never tried one that combines Mediterranean herbs and local French Fruit. Put this on anything because it really adds a great dimension to an otherwise savory meal.
Le Saunier de Camargue Finishing Salt: I grilled a salmon recipe the other night and the Le Saunier made a wonderful addition. It has no chemical treatment and is considered one of France’s most exclusive finishing salts.
La Mere Poulard Sables Cookies: These are amazing! Spread on some Charles Antona Fruit Jam and call it a day! The short bread cookies are made with only five ingredients including salted butter from Brittany. My only compliant was that the cookies expired the day I received my box.
Le Palais des Thes Green Tea with Sweet Berries: The du Hammam is a green tea with hints of roses, berries, and orange blossoms. These are clearly not your everyday teas!
Domaine des Vines Whole Grain Mustard: I made a Quinoa Salad with the Domaine des Vines and it came out great!
Maison d’Armoriée Salted Butter Caramel: The caramel were very decadent, very mild and addictive.
Un Brin Sauvage Herb Blend: I have yet to try this but I can’t wait to give my meals a touch of France!
What I really enjoy about Try the World is how they introduce you to the culture and customs. Like what you see? Use this link and get a box for free: Try The World
