Universal Yums! is a food subscription service that brings you snacks from a different country each month. Their goal is to send subscribers boxes that allow them to "Snack Like A Local" on a range of yummy, new, and surprising finds. Choose between two sizes: the Yum box ($13/month) or the Yum Yum box ($20/month).

Scam! According to their website, their previous box was Scandinavia and their upcoming box is the Philippines. So I spent nearly $50 on the largest sized boxed as a gift, expecting one of the two. Instead I received the United Kingdom, with most of the snacks being potato chips. Not worth $20, let alone $50. I get that part of the appeal is the "surprise" of the country, but as a gift...you should have some say in what you're choosing. Would not recommend.

I've been a long standing customer since 2015. The service isn't perfect and there are consistency issues. For example, the Pakistan box from September 2017 was a huge disappointment. The quality of snacks was poor and the flavours bland. The contents of that box were very cheap. However, the Belgium box from the following month was chock full of incredibly tasty snacks and was well worth it. If you are new to subscription snack and food boxes universal yums isn't the best performer and you might not be that impressed with every box you receive. Try one of the asian boxes.

We started last month (July of 2018) with the Taiwan box and loved the experience. So many interesting new tastes and what a great way to encourage children to try new foods. Even my pickiest eaters joined the fun and tried everything. And, what an excellent way to get everyone involved in discourse about flavors, food, and culture. Looking forward to receiving our next box.
