This month’s theme is Canada! The monthly fold-out booklet is so detailed with a map that shows you exactly where each product is coming from. There is a short ‘Welcome to Canada’ and ‘Meet the Chef’ section that goes into a bit more about this month’s location. You will also find a very detailed product section with a photo of each piece of food featured in your box. This was super helpful to use while navigating through each item. Finally, the back has a few recipes that you can create with some of the products you will find in your box. This booklet really sets the mood for the whole box and I loved it!
Maison Orphee Turmeric Mustard, 8.5 oz. – Retail Value $3.49
This organic mustard is not the yellow mustard that you get at the grocery store. Instead, you get that rich color from one unique ingredient, turmeric! The overall flavors are very mild with not a ton of spice so this is a great mustard to introduce to kids. My son loves dips and really enjoy trying the unique flavors in each bite. As luck would have it, I was planning on cooking hot dogs this week so this will be the perfect topper!
Peppertree Spice: Hyde Park Steak Spice, 2.2 oz. – Retail Value $5.50
I love a little history and when the monthly booklet provides a unique look at this blend. At the turn of the 20th century, European immigrants arrived in Canada and developed this flavorful blend for meats and vegetables. Peppertree Spice now hand-crafts each blend and does a kitchen test to ensure the top quality and flavors. As you can see in the photo, there are so many spices packed into this bottle including coriander, garlic, chilies, paprika, among other spices. I grill a lot because it is a quick and easy way to a delicious dinner, and I am always looking for ways to add some bunch to what would normally be a basic piece of chicken. I used this as a dry rub to burgers and it was packed full of so many flavors!
Ferme Vifranc Grade A Very Dark Organic Maple Syrup, 4.23 fl. oz. – Retail Value $3.00?
I don’t think I have ever had fresh maple syrup like this before so I was very excited to try! This organic maple syrup comes from Ferme Vifranc Inc. which is a family owned business that makes certified organic maple products from Quebec. This very dark blend is rich in antioxidants and smells amazing! You really get an almost dark coffee, caramel, or toffee-like scent when you open the bottle. The syrup itself isn’t like the store bought stuff I am used to, much thinner that allows a little pour to go a long way! The flavor is so bold with just a light sweetness, nothing too overpowering.
Vancouver Island Salt Company: Roasted Garlic Sea Salt, 45 g. – Retail Value $3.92 USD
This salt is hand-harvested from the cold waters between the Shellfish Coast and Vancouver Island. The Vancouver Island Salt Company develops this all-natural salt that is infused with roasted garlic. Salt is one ingredient that I really shy away from when I cook but I know that I shouldn’t (my husband is always adding salt when I’m not looking). This roasted garlic salt was absolutely delicious and packed so much flavor in just a small taste that I knew this would be what got me excited to season with salt. They note that you can add this to vegetables, to season a burger, or even to add some flavor to soup. As luck would have it again, I am cooking soup this week and giving this garlic salt a test drive!
Natural Skinny Foods Yogurt Covered Cranberries, 3 oz. – Retail Value $2.00?
Fun fact from the monthly booklet, cranberries outrank nearly every other fruit and veggie in antioxidant capacity. I did not know that but am going to eat all of the cranberries now! I wasn’t able to find these to purchase online, but I wish I could because I loved them and need another bag! Yes, I had the whole bag already they were that good. Each little cranberry is covered in yogurt that could pass as white chocolate. Each bite is so rich and creamy they just melt in your mouth.
Tease Maple Sugar Shack Tea, 35 g. – Retail Value $9.50
The monthly booklet notes that Tease Tea was created by Sheena Brady to celebrate modern feminism by investing in the power of women. The company raises awareness each month and financial support for a local women’s group. I love when I can support products that then support others in their community! This tea, in particular, is a limited edition blend with ingredients of maple, safflower, and rose. When you open this bag you are hit with the most beautiful smell of sweet roses. If you can believe, I don’t have a tea infuser, but borrowed one from my Mom so that I could enjoy a warm cup of this delicious and flavorful tea!
Cookie It Up Shortbread Chocolate Chip, 2 pieces, 1 oz. – Retail Value $3.00?
These cookies are made in Aurora, Ontario using all-natural ingredients that they source from local suppliers. Cookie It Up makes each cookie flavor in small batches to ensure the highest quality and the most flavor. These shortbread cookies are a buttery delight and are both soft and crumble at each bite. The chocolate chips are so big that you get a ton of that bitter sweetness in each bite. Just one of these cookies isn’t enough so it was an added bonus that I received two this month!
Verdict: This was my first experience with Try The World and I absolutely loved it! The quality of the box really shined through right from the start with the beautifully developed information fold-out. The products featured this month were all so unique and gave me a real taste for the fresh products produced in Canada. The curation and quality of each item were so wonderful that I could see Try The World making a wonderful gift for a fellow foodie like myself!

Value Breakdown: The monthly cost of this box is $39, including shipping. I received a total of eight products in this month’s box (counting the cookies as two items) which averages out to a value of $4.87 per item. While I loved the box, the overall value is a bit lower than the cost of the box. I would love to see maybe one or two higher price item to bring the total monthly value up slightly.
