While the Full Experience Box focuses on a different country each month, the Sampler Box has a monthly World Theme that is described as featuring products from 2-3 different countries each month — some months include more destinations.
This review covers the Sampler Box for June 2016 – only $9.95 per month!
The info card details the products. The origin of each item is provided — This month covered a lot of real estate, visiting Spain, Japan, Korea, and Turkey!
Everything in the box.
Jose Andres Potato Chips With Himalayan Pink Salt (Spain): This all-natural potato chip has a very nice crunch and retains quite a bit of the extra virgin olive oil in which it was cooked. They are lightly salted with lovely Himalayan pink salt. These were a nice, straightforward version of a chip.
Koska Sesame Krokan Bar (Turkey): This version of sesame crocan is not very sweet, but it is crunchy with a bit of tenderness and has a nice sesame flavor that is not particularly toasted or dark. A very enjoyable textural treat.
Basak Ezogelin Tomato Lentil With Mint Soup (Turkey): This mix is a very elegant version of tomato soup, incorporating hearty lentils and Turkish spices. The bulgur, red lentil, and mint soup is very popular in Turkey and is served as a wedding soup.
Vitrely Wave Roasted Seaweed in Spicy Gochujang Sauce (Korea): These crunchy loafs of laver (seaweed) have a liberal sprinkling of sesame seeds inside for added flavor and texture. The real dose of flavor comes from the addition of gochujang, a fermented hot sauce that packs a kick.
Maruesu Soft Dried Squid Shreds (Japan): These dried squid are typically served as a drinking snack, or otsumami, in Japan. These dried tentacles are prepared as to remain tender and easy to chew.
Orion Soft Custard Cup Cake (Korea): This delicious little cake is made with eggs and tapioca. Filled with custard, it’s like a traditional Korean version of a Hostess cake.
The inside contains a very rich and thick vanilla custard. Mmmm…
The Mini Box is a fun way to try some delicious snacks from all over the place. It doesn’t have the uniform theming of the Full Experience, but it is a good way to get your international food fix and a really good deal at less than $10 per month!
