Try the World shipped in a plain brown box (someone I didn’t get a picture of it). I love the Try the World boxes, because they are very sturdy, and have a pretty teal color. The Holiday Box was wrapped with a red ribbon.
Try the World always includes an a culture guide. Usually the Culture Guides focus on one particular country. Since this is a special Holiday Box, Try the World includes information about signature treats from all around the world, and much more.
The first few pages in the book, showed information about signature holiday treats from around the world.
There was a recipe to make you own Brigadeiro Balls.
There was holiday playlist with a listing of holiday songs from around the world.
There was also a holiday movie list from around the world. I really liked the culture guides in Try the World boxes, as they really give you a deeper look into different cultures.
Try the World included an information card with all the items in the box. Try the World also gave a background about where each item came from.
HazerBaba Turkish Delight with Pistachio: This was the mystery treat in box. These were little jelly/gummy squares that had pistachio in them and covered in powdered sugar. My husband and 2 year old loved these.
Doce De Leite, milky spread: This is a set of three milky caramel spreads. These come in natural, coconut and plums. You can spread these on crepes or bread. We aren’t very fancy here, so we will use it on bread. This is from Brazil.
Favarger Milk Chocolate: This Swiss chocolate is really outstanding. I would have to say this is one of my favorite milk chocolate bars. My 2 year old and my husband loved this too, they are total foodies.
Palais Des Thes: This French tea came in three flavors: Saint James OP (a black tea from Sri Lanka), The des Amants (A black tea with apple and spices).
Rip Van Wafels: These waffles are filled with caramel and cocoa. You put one on a cup of coffee and let it get warm. The waffle get ooey gooey good.
Annas Pepparkakor These Scandinavian cookies taste like ginger snaps. These are super fresh and taste great. My whole family loved these.
Urbani Tartufi Truffle Products: The was a sample was white truffle oil This can be used in cooking. There were also two truffle candies in the box. There was one white chocolate and one dark chocolate candy. My two year old loved the white and I loved the dark.
Final Thought: I didn’t do a full cost breakdown on this box, but I thought it was a great box. I loved the wide variety of treats. The HazerBaba was a biggest hit of the box, and the chocolate bar was a close second. I can’t wait till the next snow fall, I will be drinking that hot chocolate.
