Try the World: Italy Box
Try The World is not your typical subscription service. It allows you to try gourmet food from a different country that you can’t find in your local grocery store. It costs $39 per box, which you receive every 2 months. You can save up to 15% off by subscribing for 6 months or a year at a time. Your first box is the Paris, France box. I have also received a Venice box, Buenos Aires, Japan, and Thailand box. They have all been beyond my expectations!
The Culture Guide that is included contains great information that will heighten your Italian experience, such as a music playlist, recipes, and a little background on the culture.
Here is what I received in the Italy box:
La Pasta di Aldo Egg Pappardelle
Cascina San Cassiano Pesto Sauce
This egg pasta is handmade and dried using the traditional hanging method. This pasta is legit! I couldn’t wait to make it with the pesto sauce. When I opened the jar, the aroma of fresh basil greeted my nose. Delicious!
Terrigena Risotto Ai Funghi Porcini (with Porcini Mushrooms)
Sabatino Tartufi Truffle Zest
Societa Agricola Acetomodena Balsamic Vinegar
I love a good risotto and can’t wait to try this. The truffle zest comes in little packets that make it easy to sprinkle on pasta, salads, pizza…almost anything! My Italian grandmother used Balsamic Vinegar in all her salads and I can’t wait to recreate hers.
Marabissi Classic Amaretti
Giuliano Caffe Ground Coffee
Maison della Nocciola Hazelnut Cream
I am excited to try this coffee in my new Ninja Coffee Bar, but I need to talk about the cookies. These pinch cookies are soooo good!! I can’t even describe how tasty they are. They are airy and soft, yet something in them is just a little crunchy. They are sweet and have an almond flavor. I ate the whole bag!
Because these items are foreign, it is difficult to find prices online. But to me the actual retail value does not matter. I’ve said it before and I will say it again. This is the kind of box you buy for the experience. Since you can’t get these foods locally, it is a great way to experience a culture without having to travel! All of the items in my box were full size as well.
Try The World is perfect for anyone looking to immerse themselves in a different culture, or anyone looking for a great date night! This box would be the perfect tool in helping two people have a little adventure while staying at home.
