Let’s see what’s in September’s “Spain” Try the World box!
As always, the box was presented beautifully and was filled to the brim.
The 2-sided info card listed all of the contents, as well as brief descriptions for each item.
Every box comes with a full-color “culture guide” that includes a little background on the featured region, as well as recipes, traditions, music playlists, etc. The Spain guide featured tips for hosting your own Spanish tapas party — including recipes, a music playlist, and party games. It also included a look at some of the top spots to visit when in Spain.
El Avión Smoked Hot Paprika – I love the vintage-inspired look of this tin! I’ll definitely be putting it on display in my kitchen, even after the paprika has run out (which won’t be for a long while, since I rarely use paprika 😉 ). Many of Spain’s best-known dishes — including paella and patatas bravas — use paprika as a main ingredient.
El Almendro Turrón – Turrón is a popular holiday candy in Spain. It comes in a variety of different flavors, with this one being crunchy almond. The ingredients consist primarily of almonds, honey, sugar, and egg whites.
Oleum Hispania Extra Virgin Olive Oil – We use a ton of olive oil in this house so I was happy to receive more. The olives used for this oil are grown in high-altitude orchards and are ground at low temperatures shortly after harvest.
Espinaler Light Tuna – Espinaler is a family company who takes pride in offering the best quality tuna they can catch. This will be passed along to my mom, who loves tuna fish sandwiches.
P. Listo Jasmine Petals Jam – I’ve honestly never heard of floral jams before, so I was a little surprised to see this jasmine variety. I’m also a little nervous to try it… You can clearly see all of the jasmine “parts” floating around in the jam… Do you actually eat those? Anyone know?
Ines Rosales Citrus Crumble Cake – Now these look good. They’re little cakes that consist of cinnamon & lemon flavored pastry filled with a cider cream. The recipe is over 100 years old!
El Navarrico Tumaca Fresh Tomato Spread – This simple tomato spread can be enjoyed on toast or served as a dip. It’s made with tomatoes, olive oil, fresh garlic, and salt.
Try the World did a great job curating a nice collection of traditional Spanish fare. My favorite items are the paprika (yeah, mainly for the tin!), the olive oil, and the unique floral jam. As usual, I didn’t do a cost breakdown for each item, but since these items would likely be hard to find at your neighborhood grocery store, I’d say it’s definitely a good value.

Even though I can’t try many of the products myself, I always enjoy discovering all of the products Try the World includes in their boxes. You never know what you’re going to discover… like jasmine jam! 😉
