Try the World - Argentina
We were recently given the opportunity to check out Try the World's latest subscription international food box, which was curated in Argentina.
Our original full review can be seen on BeautyPopStop.com, but we wanted to give you guys a sneak peek here as we found it was a great opportunity for our entire family of travelers to sit together, learn about Argentina and taste some Argentinian foods!
Keep in mind, if you have food allergies in your family you may want to contact Try the World to see if they offer options for those with allergies. I have a wheat allergy and generally we avoid it as a family (our older guy has a couple other food allergies as well) , but for this box I just checked ingredients prior to trying things.

Try the World Argentina Box Contents
Here's a view of all the items that arrived in our Argentina box from Try the World! All 4 of us tried every products, including our food-sensitive youngest.
|The box included a large pamphlet with info on Argentina, recipes and more! Our kids (especially our oldest) really enjoyed learning more about Argentina.|
|Here's a recipe that incorporated one of the products we received in the box!|
|A postcard in the box listed out all the products included and how they were typically eaten in Argentina.|
|There was a key on the back of the postcard which shared different details about each product such as whether they were organic/natural or from a family-owned business.|
|While the box was huge, the volume and weight of goods included was shocking! When I picked up the box I was incredibly surprised by its weight and it almost felt like I was unloading a clown car while unpacking the goods inside.|
|These are all the foods included in our Try the World Argentina box. As you can see, everything except the tea sampler was full size.|
|This tea sampler was delicious--we're big tea drinkers. The purple packet was a a floral earl grey, the yellow packet was a honey/vanilla/cocoa and the green packet was a green earl grey.|
|Bake Love Koo!|
Butter Cookies with a coconut flavor. Super light and crispy--boys loved them.
Vinegary based sauce with moderate oregano flavor. Pretty fresh tasting and a good dipping sauce!
|Dulcor Deulce de Membrillo|
This is a sweetened quince paste (gluten-free too!).
If you like quince, you'll find this is delicious. The product was much larger than quince pastes we've purchased in the past.
|Memories of Patagonia Malbec Red Wine & Honey Marinade|
This was absolutely DELICIOUS! If you like sweet marinades, this is a must-try.
Overall, this box was both fun and delicious! It was a great learning opportunity for our little guys (talk about a fun home school activity!) and a great family activity overall. It also pushed our youngest to consider (with prodding from us) tasting some new foods. Granted he wasn't overly thrilled with some of them, because he knew he didn't have to eat large quantities of anything, he was more willing than usual to allow us to push him to taste things.
I definitely recommend this whether you're homeschooling and want a fun activity or you're adventurous travelers looking for a little cultural fun between trips! Given the volume of foods we received in this box, I think the price is very reasonable, especially because shipping is free and you're not paying tax or import fees. You also don't have to try to curate foods you know nothing about yourself!
