FALSE ADVERTISING BY TRYNEWWORLD! BEWARE!!! So, the concept looked pretty awesome and they are advertising a free box. I thought, great, I'll try them out and continue the subscription if I like the service. Follow the free box prompts on their website, get a Subtotal of $0.00, and bait and switch at the payment page!! Total, $39! I thought, okay, honest mistake. I contact their customer service. Nope, no help there. Total bait and switch! Untrustworthy and, by the way, illegal marketing tactic! I can't trust these people and you shouldn't either!!

Do not Subscribe. I first singed up for this box about a year and a half ago. At that time they did country themed boxes with ingredients and recipes from that select company. Shipping wasn't perfect, you sometimes got the box a month late, but I loved that they sent the recipes out for you to try with the ingredients you got. I got engaged and paused the subscription for 9 months while we were getting married. I let my subscription resume and found out that the company had been bought. They no longer do specific months, you really just get a random box of food. I was also super annoyed because looking through the items some were made in American (I guess you could argue Canadians would want that), but a lot of the items were packed in america and extremely similar to the items you would find in the ethnic sections of your grocery store. I had paid for 3 months and decided to cancel before receiving my third box (maybe this is where my mistake was) but I never received the third box. I sent an email, there is no phone number, and really no other way to contact the company to get the third box I paid for. I do not recommend.

So angry. I never got the first box until I complained on a FB message. Already billed for the second box. Nothing in the box was authentic. I could have found it anywhere and it was just a mixed up box of nothing. Not the way I expected this box to be at all. Went in and tried to cancel my account. Went thru all their annoying questions. Kept saying I want to cancel. It is now a day later and my cancelation still shows as pending. I tried to go in and take out my CC information but now it is hidden where I cannot get to it. I wanted to delete it so they cannot bill me again. So sad and so horribly disappointed. I wish I had read the reviews before I ordered but I saw them in FB adds and on TV so I thought they were legit. Never again. They better not bill me again and I do not want the junk they send.
