One of the first things you notice when you open the box is this pamphlet on the inside of the lid of the box which includes a list of products in the box. On the back of the product list is some recipes that you can try out with some of the products in the box. This month’s theme is Greece!

Kourambies Biscuits, 4.4 oz. – Value $5.40

These biscuits are like shortbread cookies covered in powdered sugar and have an almond in the middle. They are a little savory tasting, but mostly sweet like a cookie.

These are all natural, vegetarian, vegan, and dairy-free.

Tzatziki Mix, 0.8 oz. – Value $5.90

This 0.08 oz package of tzatziki spice mix from Stories of Greek Origin is something you can use to season your food or make a dip like I did.

I mixed this spice with Greek yogurt and it was really good! It definitely has a distinct dill taste which I happen to like a lot. I dipped some carrots in this which was really nice, but you could also use cucumbers, crackers, or red peppers.

Soft Pasteli with Honey, 1.58 oz. – Value $4.90

This sesame honey bar is all natural and is made up of only local Greek honey and sesame seeds. It is all natural, vegetarian, vegan, and dairy-free.

This bar tasted very much like exactly what it is made of, but it also tasted like a granola bar. It did also have a savory flavor that I couldn’t quite pinpoint.

Breadsticks with Sunflower Seeds, 4.23 oz. – Value $5.40

“Baking Stories uses natural ingredients and stone-ground wheat flour to elevate the quality and flavor of their snacks. Crisp yet light, these breadsticks are perfect for your own mezze celebration.”

Try The World Food Subscription Box - Greece - June 2017

These breadsticks are vegetarian and dairy-free. These were really good, but a little dry, more like a cracker. You could dip these in something or just have them on the side of a salad.

Vine Leaves Stuffed with Rice, 7 oz. – Value $5.90

“Called ‘dolmas’ in Greek, these soft grape leaves are grown in the nutrient-rich soil of Evia and stuffed with rice, dill, mint, and onions.”

These happen to be one of my favorite snacks so I was super thrilled to see these babies in my box. I wasn’t sure about them because I had never had ones from a can, but these were really really good. Highly recommend!

Spicy Pepper Paste with Feta Cheese, 3.52 oz. – Value $5.90

“This paste features red peppers and feta, and the Greek word for this sauce, htipiti, means ‘beating’ usually with a mortar and pestle.”

Try The World Food Subscription Box - Greece - June 2017

Once again I dipped a carrot in this paste/dip. I am not sure if that’s what I should have done with it, but it was really tasty. It was definitely spicy, but not too spicy. I couldn’t really taste the feta either, but that’s okay. This would be good thrown onto a mezze platter for dipping anything into!

Sweet Trahana, 250g – Value $4.20 (buy 500g for $8.40)

“Hearty in nature, trahana is an ancient staple used by shepherds in porridges and soups. These sweet trahanas are made with sheep’s milk.”

Try The World Food Subscription Box - Greece - June 2017

I made this pasta the same way I would make regular pasta by boiling water and then letting it cook for 10 minutes. I just used water, but you could make this more flavorful by using chicken broth instead. It was fluffy and creamier than regular pasta but tasted the same.

Rosemary Infused Olive Oil, 3.38 oz. – Value $4.76 (buy 8.45 oz. for $11.90)

“This rich olive oil is fragrant with rosemary and is wonderful both as a cooking oil or a finishing oil.”

Try The World Food Subscription Box - Greece - June 2017

You can cook with this oil, but instead, I chose to drizzle it on this Mediterranean bowl. The rosemary flavor wasn’t too overpowering, but it was subtle and tasty.  

Verdict: This month’s Try The World value is $42.36 which is above the $39 cost of the box (including shipping). Overall this box is definitely worth the price. I love Greek food so I thought everything in this was not only delicious, but also unique. The variety was also really exciting!

Do you think you’ll Try The World? What country do you hope they feature next?

  1. The cookies were a wreck!

  2. Just wanted to note that the pasteli is not vegan since it contains honey.
