April 2016 Try the World Snack Box Review + $15 Coupon
Try the World is a popular box for trying products from different cultures, and they recently launched a lower-cost subscription focused specifically on snacks. This snack subscription fell more into my price range, promising five full-size snacks from around the world for $15 - $19 (depending on subscription length), so I decided to give it a try.
The first item I got from the snack box was a bag of Bioka brand Kuivattu Marjamix - this is a mix of dried berries. I’m not big into dried fruits, but I liked the taste these of these berries. This product is native to Finland and sells for around $4.
The second item was a bag of Siammit Spicy Thai Rice Crackers. I’m not big into spicy foods, but I’m glad this was included in the box because it adds to the variety of flavors the box recipient gets to sample. I tried these and some of the crackers were okay, but some were too spicy for my tastes; I think people who enjoy spicy foods will like this, though. Per its namesake, this bag originates from Thailand and can be acquired for $5.
The third item was a bag of Orientines Marocaine cookies. I like sweets, so I was excited to try these. The taste is decent - not as sweet as I’m used to, but I know the USA oversweetens everything compared to other countries. These are still good to eat. This product comes from Morocco and sells for $5 per bag.
The fourth item was a package of Maison d'Armorine tender caramels. These were DELICIOUS. As a sweets lover, this was definitely my favorite item of the box. I’ll admit - I’ve already eaten them all! (In my defense, there were only 5 in the container.) This container sells for around $10.
The fifth and final item was a box of Nyaker Ginger Snaps. I’ve had ginger snaps from the USA before and these tasted exactly the same. Not a bad thing, ‘cause they were still good! This particular brand comes from Sweden and this package sells for $3 usually.
Overall, the April 2016 Try the World Snack Box contained food items from around the world valued around $28. Considering the subscription costs at most $19 per month, it appears that the box is a good deal. I also believe the company did a good job of curating the items. While I assume these are leftover snacks from their regular Try the World boxes, the selection was diverse enough to include products from different countries that provide different tastes.
