Try the World is a new subscription service that invites your taste buds to explore a new city every sixty days. Each box will include locally made/grown gourmet goodies and cultural finds, such as music playlists and poetry, native to the city being featured. The first month’s box takes you to Paris, France.
Try the World kindly sent me a mini version of the actual (fuller) Paris box that subscriber’s receive. It was a nice little taste of what they have to offer, and as luck would have it, everything was vegan. 🙂 Let’s have a look!
My mini Paris box came in, well, a mini box. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I’m a sucker for ribbon… This was pretty purple custom ribbon with the Try the World hot air balloon logo on it. Nice touch!
Alain Milliat Preserves – Two sample-sized jars of artisanal jam were included in my box: Wild Blueberry and Bergeron Apricot. They’re made with fruit that’s harvested when it’s fully matured and bursting with flavor. The next time Mike makes some homemade bread, we are SO going to slather this on. Mmm!
Les Confitures a l’Ancienne Hot Chocolate Powder – When I first saw this in the box, I almost didn’t bother reading the ingredients… I figured no way would it be vegan. But I decided to check, and it IS! Woo! It’s made with all natural ingredients and the finest cocoa beans in France. Just mix the powder with boiling(?) milk and enjoy the hot chocolatey goodness.
Le Palais des Thes Fine Teas – I received 3 different samples: The du Hammam (Hammam Tea), a traditional Turkish green tea. / The des Moines (Monks’ Tea), a flowery tea inspired by an ancient Tibetan monk recipe. / Fleur de Geisha (Geisha Flower tea), a Japanese green tea with hints of cherry blossoms. These are clearly not your everyday teas! So exotic. 🙂
The card on the left is just a welcome/intro card that gives you an overview of what’s in your box. The card on the right is a blank postcard, complete with postage already applied. Send your mom a little note! — Make her think you’re off galavanting in Paris and forgot to tell her. 😉
The photo above shows you what the actual Paris box looks like when you subscribe. Remember, mine was just a mini box for review purposes. If you sign up, you’ll get a LOT more.
Try the World is $45 every 2 months. Their next featured destination is Tokyo (shipping late November), and then Rio (shipping late January). I’m really interested in seeing what’s in the Tokyo box. Sounds fun! 😀
