I used to love Try The World, but things have changed quite a bit.
At one point I had a double subscription and ordered from their online store on top of that. These days boxes are no longer curated or feature a specific country. If you receive a box at all, which it seems many do not judging by what social media comments Try The World hasn't managed to delete, they feature Chinese sauces that can be found in nearly any grocery store, expired items, items not intended for single sale, etc. You can truthfully find better "international" food at Ross, TJ Max, etc.
The packaging has been downgraded from the beautiful collectors items they used to have to just regular ol' mailers. They no longer partner with chefs or really do much of anything.
For about six months they've claimed the issues were from a warehouse move, which granted I see they are no longer shipping from Tennessee like they used to, but six months? As well, that does nothing to explain the huge drop in quality.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
We're very sorry for any trouble we've caused. We were undergoing a warehouse transition over the past few months, which unfortunately has caused significant delays and issues. We are now settled, however, do not expect any more delays in the future. We are also listening to all of our customers' concerns and are constantly working hard to perfect each months box. Again, apologies for any frustration and inconvenience.

I personally wouldn’t consider deleting comments and blocking people from your social media pages as “listening to all of your customers’ concerns”, but maybe that’s just me.
