The first item in the Try the World Argentina Box was a jar of Memories of Patagonia Malbec Wine Marinade. The information card says that this is great for use with pork, turkey, or lamb. This has a very strong wine flavor that will dim a bit with cooking. The Hubs really enjoyed this but it just wasn’t my cup of tea.
INGREDIENTS: Red Fruits (plums, strawberries, blue berries, raspberries, blackberries), Sugar, Malbec Red Wine, and Honey
Speaking of tea…the second item in the Try the World Argentina Box was a 3-pack of Chamana and Inti Zen Argentine Teas. The Chamana and Inti Zen Teas are made with authentic Latin American ingredients only and the flavors in this box were unique. From Patagonia there was “Amazonia Mango” which had mango, papaya, and peach; from The Andes Mountains there was “Don Juan” which had Dulce de Leche and red fruits; and from The Pampas there was “Abrazo” which had rooibos, cinnamon, and crunchy lemon.
AMAZONIA MANGO INGREDIENTS: Assam Black Tea, Mango, Papaya, and Peach
DON JUAN INGREDIENTS: Dulce de Leche and Red Fruits Tea
ABRAZO INGREDIENTS: Cinnamon, Lemon, and Rooibos Tea
To go along with the tea the third item in the Try the World Argentina Box was a bag of Bake Love Koo! Coco & Coco cookies (not pictured but in the video). These had a nice buttery coconut taste and were actually really good. They were even better if you put a bit of Dulce de Leche on them, unfortunately I was unable to try them with any of the teas before they were all gone!
INGREDIENTS: Enriched wheat flour, sugar, butter oil, coconut oil, vegetable oil, egg powder, skim milk powder, salt, coconut flavoring, chemical raising agent: baking soda. Contains derivatives of wheat, eggs and milk.
The fourth item in the Try the World Argentina Box was a jar of Doña Magdalena Dulce de Leche. I’m going to be completely honest and say that before this I had never really thought of trying Dulce de Leche, and that really is the beauty of this box because after trying this I only want Dulce de Leche for all my desserts and ice cream. To make it even better this specific one is made with natural ingredients and is jarred by a family owned company!
INGREDIENTS: Milk, Sugar, Baking Soda, Natural Vanilla Flavoring, Preservative Potassium Sorbate
The fifth item in the Try the World Argentina Box was a box of Dulcor Dulce de Membrillo. I was a bit confused when I opened this, I mean it’s essentially jelly in a box. I haven’t tried this one yet but the Hubs did and he thought it was fruity enough but didn’t have a lot of flavor. He thinks that is because it’s different than the preserves that we’re use to.
The sixth item in the Try the World Argentina Box was a jar of MQA Gourmet Green Olive Paste. Not only do I love the taste of this but I also love the fact that the green olives are ground/pitted freshly done.
INGREDIENTS: Green Olives, Salt, and Acidifying Lactic Acid
The last item in the Try the World Argentina Box was a jar of Arytza Chimichurri. This contains some herbs and olive oil that I KNEW that the Hubs would LOVE. I was right on the money. He tried a little of this on his finger from the bottle and couldn’t WAIT to get to try it on actual food. It’s not spicy at all just full of flavor.
INGREDIENTS: Water, White Vinegar, Salt, Red Pepper, Garlic, Parsley, Oregano, Basil, Thickener INS 415, Potassium Sorbate, Dye INS 150, Thickener INS 410, Acid INS 330, Natural Aroma of Barbecue Smoke and Smell.
