Try the World recently started offering a monthly snack box in addition to their original destination-themed food boxes. I was offered July’s box for review and was eager to see what was inside!
Each Try the World Snack Box will contain 5 full-sized, artisan-made snacks — all sourced from different regions around the globe. You could receive ginger cookies from Sweden, dried jackfruit from Thailand, lychee candies from Japan… Anything goes! An assortment of both sweet and savory treats will be included, along with a product card that features the story behind each product.
Subscriptions are $19/month or less with multi-month commitments. Shipping is free within the US. — For a limited time, you can get your first box for just $4 with coupon code “SNACKNOW“!
Let’s see what’s in the July 2016 Try the World Snack Box!
Everything was shipped in a bright red box via UPS. (Happy to see that it passed inspection. 😉 )
A peek inside.
An info card listed all of the items in the box, along with photos and background information on each one.
Inka Corn Roasted Giant Corn Peru – These roasted kernels are made from corn grown exclusively in “The Sacred Valley of the Incas” near Cusco and Machu Picchu. The corn is an heirloom variety which was the same type enjoyed centuries ago by the Inca civilization. I always seem to get flavored corn snacks (usually salt & vinegar) in subscription boxes, so I was happy to see these plain ol’ “Original” ones for a change.
Sunshine Snacks Sun-dried Figs Turkey – These all natural treats are imported from Turkey, the world’s largest producer of figs. The label describes them as “little mouthfuls of Mediterranean sunshine”. 🙂 I’ve honestly never tried an actual fig (outside of fig bars), so I’m looking forward to seeing if I like ’em.
Flower Kiss Candy Japan – I’m not totally sure why these are called “Flower Kiss Candies”, when they’re actually plum-flavored. Weird. Though I gotta say, the flower-themed packaging is pretty dang adorable despite being a bit misleading.
Morsjo Deli Flatbread Crisps Sweden – I remember getting these in Try the World’s “Sweden” box not too long ago. They’re traditionally made flatbread crisps that are deep fried in canola oil and dusted with gourmet salt.
Mondo di Laura Chocolate Cookies Italy – I saved the best for last! — VEGAN chocolate cookies from Italy! I’ve gotten so used to getting delicious-looking treats in subscription boxes that I’m not able to eat, so when I receive something like this I get very excited. 😉 I tried them last night and it took great restraint not to eat the whole package in one sitting… They have a rich, chocolatey flavor with creamy chocolate chunks throughout and just a hint of Himalayan salt. SO good!
I was very happy with my first Try the World Snack Box experience. They did a great job of including both sweet & salty/savory snacks as promised, and I was thrilled to see that 3 out of the 5 were actually vegan-friendly. Those chocolate cookies alone were enough to earn this box five stars. 😉 Remember — for a limited time, you can get your first box for just $4 with coupon code “SNACKNOW“!
