The Try The World food subscription box is a delicious and fun way to discover unique and authentic, gourmet foods and flavors from a different country every 2 months. With today’s Try The World review, we’re taking a closer look at the July/August Try The World Box. The July/August Try The World theme is Japan!
Every Try The World box includes a culture guide that provides additional information about the country’s culture and with helpful tips and recipes for using that month’s box. The Japan Try The World box can be used to host a Tea Ceremony or a Make-Your-Own Okonomiyaki Dinner Date. A product card is also provided with descriptions for each of the gourmet food items in that month’s Try The World food box.
Here’s a first look inside our Japan Try The World box.

We can’t wait to create our own Japanese dishes using the authentic Japanese gourmet foods in the Try The World Japan Box. From the soba noodles to the lychee gummy candies, Try The World featured a variety of sweet and savory Japanese flavors in this month’s box.
