Try The World Brings Foreign Tastes to Your Doorstep

Try The World creates a true cultivated culinary experience at your doorstep

Hectic work schedules can make it challenging to venture the world and experience other cultures. Thanks to Try the World, you can become a seasoned traveler without ever leaving your home. This online subscription service will send a gift box to your doorstep bearing an assortment of gourmet goodies representing a specific country. It includes everything from food and wine to music and movie recommendations — all carefully chosen to give recipients a well-rounded experience of that country’s unique culture.

The Tokyo Box, for instance, captures the best of Japanese traditions with delicacies like red bean jelly, milk caramels and a variety of teas, along with authentic origami paper, bamboo chopsticks and an illustrated postcard featuring a haiku by famed 17th century poet Matsuo Basho.

Try the World falls right in line with this burgeoning “Of the Month” trend currently taking the world by storm. As part of this trend, Try the World’s gourmet gift boxes ($45/box) pleasantly surprise people at their doorsteps every two months.

For those unwilling to make the bimonthly commitment, the boxes are also offered as a “three country tour” ($140). For more information, visit trytheworld.com. —Mackenzie Leander
