Let’s see what’s in the May/June 2016 “Sweden” Try the World box!
The box! (I’m not sure why my photos of the actual box always look so crummy, but… they do. 🙁 )
A peek inside! I’m always impressed at how tight they pack these boxes. You couldn’t fit another item in there if you tried.
Inside the fold-out Culture Guide were recipes, a playlist, and photos/descriptions of each item in the box.
Hafi Lingonberry Jam – You can’t have a Swedish-themed box without including a jar of lingonberry jam. I’ve actually never tried lingonberries, though they have always piqued my curiosity when I’d see all of the jams at Ikea. The berries used for this particular brand are sourced from wild, eco-certified forests.
Gille Double Chocolate Crisps – These cookies look delicious and I’m sad that they’re not vegan (not that I was expecting them to be). They consist of two oat crisps held together by a chocolate filling with some more drizzled on top. Perfect for dipping in tea or just enjoying as is.
Tillmans Organic Elderflower Syrup – Use this traditional Swedish syrup to flavor sparkling water, make a sorbet, or enjoy in a cocktail. It’s made with the juice of organically grown elderflowers and has a flavor all its own.
Morsjo Deli Swedish Gourmet Crisps – Crunchy flatbread crisps deep fried in canola oil and flavored with gourmet salt. Try them topped with lingonberry jam or crumbled into breading.
Lakritsfabriken Sweet Liquorice – A little box of authentic sweet Swedish licorice. I’ve never been much of a licorice fan, but I might give this a try. Chances are, the majority of the box will go to my licorice-loving mom.
Liss Ellas Sweet & Hot Honey Mustard – This mustard was a gold medal winner at the World Wide Mustard Competition, so it must be good. 😉 It contains domestically-grown mustard seeds, local honey, and high quality spices.
Lofbergs Ground Coffee – I’ve never had Swedish coffee (as far as I know), so I’m looking forward to trying this. It’s described as having a dark and intense flavor with a nutty aroma and hints of fruit.
Nordic Fudge Rosehip Fudge – A traditional confection made by hand, this Swedish fudge features the unique flavors of wildberries and rosehips. Made with pure, organic ingredients.
Another collection of unique treats from Try the World! Remember, if you’d like to subscribe, you can save 15% off your first box with coupon code “littlerosebuds15“! Or you can try a FREE trial box (just pay $5 shipping) when you click here.
