Spicing up the blog today with a new box I wanted to try. I wanted to stray away from the make-up and beauty products that I’ve been receiving in the mail (for now) and try this box called “Try the World”.
- I love food
- I doubt I’ll ever fly around the world to witness the different cultures first hand
So thank you to whomever invented this RAD little box! “Try the World” is based every other month and allows you to try different goodies from different countries. The very first box I received is all about Spain culture. Unfortunately, the only thing I have ever learned about Spain was the ‘Running of the Bulls festival’, but a complete booklet of the culture guide comes with your box. You will read all about the chefs behind your box, how to use your box with enlisted recipes for hosting your “Spain party”, top party music playlist, (which sucks by the way, can’t understand what they are saying but the beat is good) top card games to play and number one sites in Spain to add to your bucket list.
I never realized how beautiful looking at these pictures in this booklet of Spain are. I kind of actually feel sorry for people, who never get to see the world or experience the beauty God placed on this Earth for us to enjoy. Stupid Kardashains – just kidding, but seriously though the architecture buildings are AAH-AZAMING – at least I can dream about it from home and think about what it would be like to explore such a beautiful city. I didn’t realize the Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba was once divided into a shared space for Catholics, Muslims and Christians. – Wow, wouldn’t it be great for everyone to be able to pray together again someday?!
Ok – back to the box! What can you find in your Spain Box?
- P. Listo floral jam
- El Avion paprika
- Oleum Hispania, extra-virgin olive oil
- Ines Rosales, cortadillo citrus crumble cakes
- Espinaler, canned white tuna
- El Navarrico, salsa tumaca con ajo
- El Almendro, turron
Each item contains if the product is a family business, a traditional recipe, supports local community or if the product is all-natural or organic and sustainably grown, with a full in detail description of items.
AND LASTLY – I was super excited that “Try the World” also included the best of Spain experience for the wine-o’s! This booklet enlist best white wines and red wines and regional cuisines around Spain, so if you ever hop on a plane and try the Spain life, please send me a post card or let me know what else you like about Spain! Until then, I’m going to keep trying the world from my mailbox! This may also be a good idea for Christmas gifts.
Stay tuned for part 2 of cooking with “Try the World” and how everything taste, what I like and what got tossed in the dog bowl.
