Yummy Bazaar World Sampler May 2018 Review

Hello from Yummy Bazaar

Every World Sampler Box also comes with this “Hello, World!” info sheet that gives you the rundown on where the products have come from, their ingredients (if not listed in English on the package), and pricing info for the full-size versions. This month includes sweet treats and savory snacks from France and Turkey!

Items in the May 2018 Box

I like to read ingredient lists, so having everything listed in English is a must-have for me when it comes to international snacks.

Susam Sesame Brittle

Koska Sesame Crocan, 1.4oz – Retail Value $1.95

It’s been awhile since I’ve reviewed a Yummy Bazaar box, but I immediately remembered this crunchy treat from a box I received over a year ago!

Susam Sesame Brittle

I love sesame and I usually eat snacks pretty quickly if I’m being honest, but this one is so crunchy and filling that it lasts quite a long time.

Susam Sesame Brittle

I’m actually surprised there aren’t more snacks like this on the US market– no artificial colors or flavors and only three ingredients. I’m a fan, although it’s not an everyday treat.

Ulker Deluxe Strawberry Wafers

Ulker Deluxe Strawberry Wafers – Full size, Listed Value $1.45

These wafer cookies always remind me of childhood! It’s kind of fun to see that they exist in other parts of the world, isn’t it?

As expected, these were crunchy and light and excellent with some coffee. I kind of wish the flavor profile was something more unique (since strawberry wafer cookies are something I can pick up at virtually any grocery store), but this was a solid snack to share with my son.

Tavuk Harci Seasoning

Mangal Tavuk Harci –60g Full Size, Retail Value $3.95

The World Sampler always includes one “pantry” type item. That adds variety and a chance to get out of “snack” mode a bit and try something new!

Tavuk Harci Seasoning

This seasoning packet is perfect for grilling season. Simply marinate chicken in this mix for 1-2 hours with some olive oil, and you’re ready to go!

The ingredient mix is pretty unusual so I’m curious about this. It starts off with salt, onion, and paprika… but also includes oregano, curry, and mint. Hm!

Ulker Krispi Turkish Crackers

Krispi Spiced Crackers by Ulker, Full Size – Listed Value $1.99

I was convinced these were ruffled potato chips until I opened the bag… they are actually tiny little ridged crackers!

Ulker Krispi Turkish Crackers

These have a very strong flavor profile that reminded me of eating a gyro. I couldn’t figure out exactly which part of the seasoning made me feel that way, but I couldn’t think of anything else!

Ulker Krispi Turkish Crackers

Definitely made me look up if Lay’s has done a gyro flavor and yep, of course, they have. I wonder how these compare!

Salted Caramel Lolli

Salted Caramel Lollipop by Bonbons Barnier, Sample Size (Single Lollipop)

I’m not a big lolli person, but I’ve also received this treat before and they’re pretty good. Especially with a cup of coffee. 😉

Salted Caramel Lolli

The long oval shape is perfect, and the caramel flavor isn’t overly sweet. (Which is always a big deal for me!)

Salted Caramel Lolli

This treat comes from France, just like our last snack:

Chocolate Crepe

Chocolate Crepe by Jacquet, Sample Size (Individual Serving) – Buy 6 for $3.70 here

This single-serve chocolate french crepe kind of rocked my world. I had no idea something like this existed!

Chocolate Crepe

As a fan of chocolate croissants, this delivered a lot of the same experience without the crumbly, buttery mess. I loved the fine layers of chocolate and crepe, which gave this snack a great texture.

Chocolate Crepe

While I felt a little guilty enjoying this as much as I did when fresh crepes are sooooo delicious, these are made with cage-free eggs, pure butter, and non-GMO ingredients… so it’s still something I can feel good about, right? 🙂

Verdict: Yummy Bazaar World Sampler Box sent items from only two countries this month, but they were all pretty great to try and share. I love having a mix of sweet and savory snacks, plus the pantry item for variety! My favorite was the crepe for sure, but those gyro-flavored crackers were really interesting too– as with all international snack boxes, this is a lot about just trying and experiencing new things and new cultures.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, but subscribe today to receive the June box which ships between the 15-18th.
