What’s Inside a Try the World Pantry Subscription Box?

What is Inside a Try the World Pantry Subscription Box

Try the World is a company that offers three different ways to explore global sweets, treats, snacks and cooking ingredients. The first subscription that they created, Countries, contains a “curated selection of gourmet foods—including ingredients to cook with, drinks, and snacks.” The items come from a single country, which changes on a monthly basis. Another subscription option, Snacks, offers a variety snacks from around the world. Lastly, the Pantry subscription is what I ordered this month – it’s intended to add a little pizazz to your routine grocery shopping…and I was beyond impressed.

This is the first time that I have opened up a subscription box and everything has interested me.

There wasn’t one item in the box that I frowned at, or immediately said to myself that I was going to give it to someone else.

In fact, I barely wanted to share anything with anyone.

The Contents of a Try the World Pantry Box

The Try the World Pantry box I received included the following five items:

Try the World Pantry – Canadian Maple Shortbread Description

Canadian Maple Shortbread by Sprucewoods (Canada)

Made with pure Canadian maple syrup, there is this distinctly delicious brown surgery-taste accompanied by a firm, crunchy cookie base that I am in love with. I would definitely purchase these if I saw them at the grocery store, which I haven’t (and they are not on Amazon), so I might have to get a hold of some on eBay, which I did…for $4.44 plus free shipping.

Try the World Pantry – Dark Chocolate with Almonds Description

Dark Chocolate with Almonds by Dolfin (Belgium)

Packaged in its own ‘candy bar wallet,’ this dark chocolate bar has finely chopped pieces of almond, but not enough nutty substance in my opinion – I wish there was more of a crunchy texture to it. Overall, the chocolate is high quality…this you can tell…I’m just more of a milk chocolate lover.

Try the World Pantry – Mini-Madeleines Description

Mini Madeleines by St Michel (France)

Madeleines are small cakes made in France comprised of butter, sugar, and flour. The madeleines featured in the Pantry box aren’t entirely soft, but have this spongy, somewhat chewy texture that is somewhere between a corn muffin and a cupcake. I enjoyed the texture and taste of these lil’ cakes, which had a pleasant vanilla flavor. They pair well with coffee and tea.

Orange Cookie by Orientines (Morocco)

Described as a ‘crisp butter cookie,’ there were rock-hard pieces of orange peel that I felt really took away from the overall enjoyment of the cookie, which is also much firmer than the shortbread described above. There is a light citrus flavor in these bite-size cookies, but hard to truly enjoy them because of the incredibly hard, hidden bits. A big plus with this package is that it contained a lot of cookies with enough servings for three people.

Try the World Pantry – Salty Licorice Description

Salty Licorice by Lakritzfabriken (Sweden)

Identified as one of Sweden’s ‘most popular candies,’ these sweets are made from licorice root, and are one of the softest black licorice brands that I’ve ever tasted. I enjoyed its authentic flavor, and despite the Pantry box’s description of it being ‘salty,’ the licorice was enjoyably sweet.

    Subscription boxes are the best .. particularly when there is food involved. When I receive something similar .. I always challenge myself to make something new from the contents. If I was lucky enough to get this box .. the dark chocolate with almonds and also the maple shortbread would be high on my list. Yum!
