NETHERLANDS! UNIVERSAL YUMS BOX OCTOBER 2015

I just received this box yesterday, and once I saw the stroopwaffel packaging, I lost it. I LOVE stroopwaffels!

JAPAN! UNIVERSAL YUMS BOX JULY 2015

Boy, was I excited for this box. I may be biased but I always enjoy the Asian snacks more because I am more familiar with them and I am always excited to see if there are new snacks for me to try out. This box did not disappoint!

MEXICO! UNIVERSAL YUMS BOX JUNE 2015

June’s box was from Mexico, which I adored. Many of the snacks I’m already familiar with, my favorite being the Vero Mango and Pulparindo (funny it came with a warning label that snackers may not enjoy, I LOVE tamarind). I didn’t care for the Takis Fuego or the Sabritas Adobadas (Marinated flavored Lays), but I appreciate the play on spicy, salty, and tangy that Mexican snacks always provide. I took Yum Box’s recommendation to put Bubu Lubu in the freezer before snacking on it, and it was awesome – like a fluffy frozen treat!

ISRAEL! UNIVERSAL YUMS BOX MAY 2015

This month’s box came from Israel! I haven’t had the chance to try all the snacks just yet, but I’ve been impressed with the ones I’ve eaten so far. The kif kef chocolate bar tastes exactly like a Kit Kat, and the toffee fruit chews remind me of hi-chews. The box came with the Pinuki cola dragees unwrapped, so I wasn’t able to try them. I sent the company a picture and they actually sent another one to me sealed, with more fruit chews – win! The cola dragees taste like cola at first, and then you bit into the chewy center and it reminds me of skittles. The ending is a little bitter, which I’m not sure if I enjoy yet, but I’m still going to eat all these up! I can’t wait to try the Bamba and Bissli!

SCANDANAVIA! UNIVERSAL YUMS BOX APRIL 2015

Here’s my box from Scandanavia – The Daim Toffee were DELICIOUS, as well as the Marianne Chocolate Mints. My least favorite thing was the Salmiakki, which is a salty licorice. I’m not fond of licorice to begin with, so I didn’t have much hope for this…and I could only take one small bite. Not my cup of tea! All the other snacks were delicious, I love the Lar’s Swedish Gingersnaps with my morning cup of tea – it reminded me of biscoff cookies but with ginger in it. Yummy!

Germany! Universal Yums Box December 2014

I have a problem – I’m addicted to subscription boxes. There, I admitted it. I began shopping for Christmas presents and stumbled across the idea of gifting boxes, which I did for some friends. I then decided I would indulge in a few boxes myself. One of the two is Universal Yums, which I was able to subscribe to at a discounted price of $10/month (Regular is $13/month) for the small Yum box, which comes with at least 6 snacks. The larger option is the Yum Yum Box, which is $25/month and comes with 13 or more snacks. The idea is that every month, you get a box filled with snacks from a different country.
