Try the World: Thailand Box
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 a Venice box, Buenos Aires, and the Japan box. They have all been beyond my expectations!
The Culture Guide that is included contains great information that will heighten your Thai experience, such as a music playlist, recipes, and a little background on the culture.
Today I received the Thailand box. Here is what I received in my box:
Lumlum Tom Yum Soup Set
A perfect balance of sour and spicy, Tom Yum Soup is known for its medicinal properties. The spices included in this set are harvested from a small village in northern Thailand and make it easy to cook your own at home. You can use it to make a curry dinner or season a marinade.
Chiwadi Coconut Flower Syrup
A common sweetener, this hand-harvested syrup is made by collecting the nectar that flows from coconut blossoms when they are cut. The producer provides fair wages and funds projects in western Thailand.
Minemadame Taro Chips
A starchy root vegetable, taro tastes like a potato, but is richer and milky in flavor. In Thai markets, it’s generally sold fresh, cooked, or fried. True to tradition, these chips are both sweet and salty and deliciously snackworthy.
Nittaya Thai Curry Paste
Long ago, Thai cooks took inspiration from Indian curry to create a distinct variation with fresh herbs. Based on their traditional family recipe, Nittaya is known for its quality and as a staple ingredient in Thai home kitchens.
Virgin Coco Coconut Crispy Rolls
In Thai, these crumbly cookies are called thong muan. Thong means gold, so giving these cookies to someone as a gift is interpreted as a wish for wealth. They’re particularly delicious alongside traditional Thai tea.
This new strain of rice is packed with antioxidants and fiber, making it one of the most healthful varieties. It’s also fair trade: Jasberry employs only small-scale producers and shares profits with farmers and cooperatives.
Eros Soft Dried Jackfruit
Tha families generally buy fruit and vegetables from trucks in the street that announce their daily selection. This produce forms an important part of the diet. Locals eat the fresh or died variety as a snack during the day.
Wangderm Thai Iced Tea
The milky grassy flavors of Thai iced tea make it one of the Thailand’s best loved beverages. This kit is made by a company that was built on the site of Bangkok’s old royal palace and strives to preserve Thai culinary culture.
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.
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.
