Try the World :: Rio de Janeiro

And it's one of my favorite times of the month! For the past few months, Robert and I have been getting a Try the World box - a subscription box full of goodies from around the world. We've already visited Paris and Tokyo, and this time we're traveling to Brazil
In this box :: Predilecta, goiabada (guava dessert) // Madrugada, cha de erva-doce (anise tea) // Santa Helena, mendorato (Japanese style peanuts) // Santa Helena, pacoquita (peanuts sweet) // Reservas de Minas, geleia de morango (strawberry jam) // Bananinha Cremosa, banana bar // Ducoco, coco ralado (shredded coconut)

I have to say, getting this fun little box in the mail is always a treat. I haven't had the opportunity (yet) to travel much in my life, so it's nice to have a bit of the world come to me sometimes. I really loved this box, especially the jam (I love strawberry jam, probably more than I should), and those Japanese style peanuts are always delicious. It's interesting - we've gotten tea in every box so far, which I'm definitely NOT complaining about. It's just always so fascinating to see how the same concept is interpreted in different parts of the world, without ever having to leave my little apartment!

This box was sent to my home in exchange for a review and write up, though my opinions are completely my own. You can read more about my blog's policies here. As a small business owner and self-employed blogger, I always appreciate your support and consideration!

What a fun little box! Living in Brazil myself, I have to say...they sent you some very 'trademark' brazilian stuff! Just a little side not, the tea is actually 'Maracuja' which is passion fruit tea - and its known to help you sleep, so make sure to only drink it before bed (or a nap) :)

This would totally be one of my favorite boxes, I love food and travel! And it's a great coincidence., I have a giveaway on the blog for a box full of Russian goodies, if you're interested: http://lublyou.com/2014/05/30/russian-treats-giveaway-plus-recent-snaps/

It's one of the best boxes I've ever gotten, for sure! I haven't traveled to most of these places, but I do believe that food is one of the best ways to experience a new place :)

It's definitely my favorite box! I haven't seen anything like it, and they put so much thought into each and every one. I'm obsessed!
