Try the World has just released their special edition holiday box for 2015! This box is packed with decadent treats from all over the globe and would most definitely make a great gift for dessert-lovin’ friends, family members, coworkers… Just about anyone who likes to eat. 😉
If you haven’t heard, Try the World is a subscription box that invites your taste buds to explore a new city every sixty days. Each box will include 7-10 locally made/grown gourmet goodies as well as cultural finds — such as music playlists and movie recommendations — produced in the city being featured. Subscriptions are $39 every 2 months, or less with multi-month commitments. New customers can save 30% off your first box with coupon code “ROSEBUDTRAVELS“!
Let’s see what’s in the Holiday 2015 Special Edition Try the World box!
The box itself was beautifully presented with a big red ribbon. (Um, have I mentioned how gift-able this box is? 😉 )
A look inside!
Unlike their regular boxes where it sits atop the contents, the Culture Guide for the Holiday Box was tucked neatly into the specially designed lid.
Inside the fold-out Culture Guide were holiday recipes, a festive playlist, and photos/descriptions of each item in the box.
Truffette de France Chocolate Truffles (Canada) – Who doesn’t love truffles? These cocoa-dusted morsels began production in France, but their great popularity there led to an expansion to Quebec, Canada where they’re currently made. A classic holiday treat!
Biokia Kuivattu Marjamix Dried Berry Mix (Finland) – This berry blend contains a mix of Finnish lingonberries, blackcurrant, and bilberry, as well as cranberries from the US. Hopefully I’ll be able to figure out which berry is which, since I’m not familiar with any of the Finnish ones. (Google image search to the rescue!)
G. Cova & C. Panettone (Italy) – Panettone is a sweet bread that’s traditionally made using a time-consuming process of soaking, leavening, and baking. When baked in the home, it’s typically marked with a cross by the head of the household as a good omen for the coming year. The inclusion of candied orange peels gives it a nice citrus flavor.
Teatonics Ruby-Red Restorative Winter Calming Tea (UK) – Yay, tea! This restorative “calming” tea is made with organic ingredients consisting of red rooibos, hibiscus, green rooibos, cacao shells, vanilla pod, and licorice. Since rooibos is caffeine-free, it’s a great tea to enjoy later in the evening.
Nyakers Ginger Snaps (Sweden) – I love ginger snaps and was very happy to see that these ones were vegan-friendly. They contain the traditional blend of cinnamon, ginger, and cloves, as well as a dash of natural orange flavor. Mmm!
Sindyanna of Galilee Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (Israel) – This fair trade olive oil is grown, harvested, and cold pressed by an inspiring cooperative of Arab and Jewish women in northern Israel. It’s sustainable grown and its purchase helps support their local communities.
Orientines Palmiers Marocaine (Morocco) – A traditional Moroccan treat, these puff pastry cookies are made with 100% natural ingredients… Just four of them, actually: wheat flour, butter, sugar, and salt.
Bazzar Açaí Dessert Sauce (Brazil) – I’ve seen açaí berries in granola and other products, but never in a sauce. This sweet treat is made in Rio de Janeiro and contains both açaí and banana pulp, as well as other natural ingredients. It can be enjoyed on ice cream, yogurt, and even as a glaze over meat.
Try the World certainly knows how to put together a fun, nicely curated — very gift-able — holiday box! I was surprised to see so many vegan-friendly products included too, which is always a big plus in my book. 😉

Good write-up and nice pics.
Though, I got the same box and was extremely disappointed. I’m glad that you showed the way that tangled ball of hay is thrown into the package. I also was surprised at how itty bitty the items were; maybe they could have saved some room by leaving off the olive oil and tea – not exactly rare finds! In fact, I don’t think there was a single item that could not be found at my local grocer… still, glad you enjoyed it!
