Global Desserts: Holiday Box from Try the World

Christmas is just around the corner and I am excited although I am a little bit homesick.  Some of you might be done with shopping for gifts already  but am sure there are some who still  have some shopping to do.  If you have love ones who have sweet tooth, here is a great gift idea that you can consider giving, the holiday box from  Try the World.   I was excited to receive  the holiday box because I have  sweet tooth here in the family who love these kinds of snacks.
I wasn't sure what to expect but  completely blown away with everything in it.  Inside the box is the best selection of holiday foods from around the world..
The holiday box includes  chocolate truffles, pistachio cream, , yerba mate tea, extra virgin olive oil, panettone, cookies, acai dessert sauce, This box is a bigger size compared to their regular size.  
I love pistachio nuts so I was excited to try this pistachio cream.  This delicious spread is great for  bread or you can mix it with your  pastries.  I even tried this with waffles and it tasted awesome.  I am planning to  use the rest of the cream into making  our holiday cookies.
This ginger snaps is  a great win for my kids.  We don't get ginger snaps  often but they love this kind.  This is a favorite treat on  one of the Sweden's holiday celebration, the St. Lucia day, which also happen to be my son's calls saint.  St. Lucy is the  girl who brought food to those Christians who were persecuted in Rome.  
The french truffles reminds me of the dessert that I eat during Christmas  season  from the country where I came from.  These truffles is  from Canada, a great accompaniment to for   ice cream.  I ate a bowl of coffee-flavored ice cream the other day and incorporated this  into it and man, it was delicious!
I have never tried an olive oil  from Israel so I am super happy that they included this in the holiday box.  I don't cook with olive oil  upon reading  an article that the  health component of an olive oil disappears when you use it to cook in a high heat so I only use olive oil in salad or when making a vinaigrette. This extra virginim olive oil is grown, harvested, and cold pressed  by a cooperative of Jewish women in NOrthern Israel. 
This yearba mate tea is my new pick me up in the morning.  I  mix this with  lemon juice and honey and my morning starts awesome while waiting for my kids to wake up in the morning.  A great  susbtitute for coffee which I recently gave up drinking.  This teatonic  has siuth american suoer yerba mate, blended with citrus and mint for morning vitality and focus.  A great drink to start my day!
I just recently been incorporating an acai powder to my  smoothies so I was super stiked to see this acai sauce in the box.  You can use this to glaze the  turkey you are baking for the holiday.  I love this with my waffles. IT is also great with  pancakes.  
I have never been to Italy yet so  tasting one of their  desserts is awesome.  This is a sweet bread which I really liked.  IT reminds me of the one kind of a bread that I used ti eat back home.  My husband always say that the bread   from my country is sweet, it turns oiout, where not the only one.
This cookies  will bring you to the taste of Morroco.  This is another   one that both of my kids liked especially my daughter.  It's great to  eat when  drinking your cup of tea and having a great conversaion with the family.  
I love the shape of these cookies, so pretty and really tasty!  
Aside from these yummy goodies, I also love the fact that they included some recipes  on the  guide  booklet.  I might try  to bake one of the recipes and make  some cookies.  I baked this almond cookies with acai sauce today, it's delicious.  I will post the recipe  on a separate  post later.
