Our first monthly box from Try the World arrived and we were anxious to dive into it. First thing we noticed and were disappointed in was the fact that there was no information booklet or flyer describing or giving information on the products. The second disappointing thing was that the products were from all over and not grouped thematically by country or region. I cannot complain about the quality of the products as they were top notch.
The first item was coffee with no identifying place of origin evident, I will have Rita try this later.
The chocolate bar from Switzerland was some of the best chocolate I have ever tasted and that is with the caveat that I usually do not like nuts in my chocolate. The upgrade in quality from Universal Yums or Snack Crate was very evident.
The Ghee Oil spray with truffle out of California was wonderful imparting a nice buttery taste to sautéed items.
The Greek olive oil was also exceptional.
The fruity chew candy from Poland had a nice pronounced fruit flavor, again very high quality for what it was.
The honey was out of Georgia and was a good tasting mild-flavored high quality honey.
The last item in the box were packets of herbal tea. There again was no evident country of origin but they were distributed out of New York, so I assume domestic. The tea was very aromatic and somewhat off-putting but when steeped and served was very pleasant. Alex especially like it.
To summarize the lack of information on the products was frustrating but the quality of the items more than made up for that deficit. It was nice to get non snack items in the box as opposed to what you get with Yums or Snack Crate. All in all a win and we will continue to look forward to our monthly shipments.
