Try The World: Japan – Food Subscription Box Review
I received a free product to review. All opinions expressed herein are my own.
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 the Venice box and the Buenos Aires box. This month I got to try the Japan box.
Here is everything I received in my box:
Takaokaya Seaweed Snack
Ishiguro Yamaimo Soba Noodles
Kasugai Gummy Candies
Wadakan Umami Ponzu Sauce
Aoi Tea Blueberry Matcha Tea
Otafuku Foods Okonomiyaki Kit
Morinaga Milk Caramels
If you ever had any doubt the food was authentic, this box is proof that it is. I can’t even read the labels! 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 really 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.
The Culture Guide that is included contains great information that will heighten your Japanese experience, such as a music playlist, movies, recipes, and a little background on the culture. 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.
This is one of my favorite subscription boxes to open. All the items are new and exciting. Sign up now!
