Try the World is one of the most unusual subscription boxes on the market. Try the World gives the small taste of the world’s unique cuisines. It’s a food experience abroad from the comfort of your own kitchen. Even the Huffington Post traveled the globe by opening a Try the World Box.
We received the Paris Box, the first box in the Try the World subscription.
Unpacking this box was an experience that brought Paris to our home.
We toured Paris with the Cultural Guide. It introduced us to the city of lights. The Cultural Guide has:
- Parisian Playlist link you can listen to the Classics or Contemporary French Music
- It spotlights French movies
- French Poetry
- Highlights Paris landmarks (The Louvre, Saut Du Loup, La Sorbonne, Barque In Boulogne, Le Palais Garnier
- Explores Paris Food & Drinks
- Recipe for Crepes
The next layer in the box is introduces you to the products that are waiting in the Try the World Paris Box. It highlights each product and gives a brief history of the product.
Before I introduce you to “what’s inside”, I’d like to share with you the authenticity of this box. It’s not a hodgepodge collection. There is a culinary expert behind the Paris Box, Chef Christophe Schmitt. He’s an executive chef at Le Diane, one of the top restaurants in Paris.
It’s a stunning collection for the foodie wanting to enjoy Paris.
It’s much different than that time we ate our way through four countries under the Eiffel Tower.
It’s gourmet Paris!
There are items we have eaten already, like Salted Butter Caramels–though the ones in Try the World’s Paris Box are from Brittany. They are made with Breton butter and Brittany’s favorite Fleur de sel (that’s salt). They were by far the best salted caramels I have ever tasted. Sort of the difference between a Hershey’s candy bar and true Belgium chocolate.
One of the most interesting items in the collection was something called Clément Faugier. Miss M thought it was toothpaste, but instead, this tube, named after its founder, Clément Faugier, is world-renowned for making the finest chestnut spreads and creams. Faugier developed his first chestnut based product in the south of France in 1882.
Made without the use of any artificial additives, the company’s centuries-old production procedures make sure the respect of the flavor and nutritive quality of the chestnuts.
Miss M has found Bonne Maman fig preserves to be her necessity for after school snacking. Bonne Maman is a storied French brand. The fig preserves are all natural, contain no artificial coloring, corn syrup or preservatives. It is some delicious stuff perfect on bread, crepes, scones or cheese!
Try the World has also launched a Tokyo and Rio box for those wanting to travel beyond Paris!
Try the World is truly an experience. With Valentine’s Day nearing, it would make the perfect gift for those wanting to experience France, without the airfare costs!
