Universal Yums Halloween Box 2019 Review
As many of you know, Universal Yums is one of my all-time favorite subscriptions. When I found out they were releasing a one-time Halloween box- I was ecstatic! In this box, I received 6 different types of candy for a total of 300 pieces. This box was designed with trick-or-treating or parties in mind, as you can see by the box layout. While it is meant to be shared, my kids are BEGGING me to let them have it all to themselves… but maybe I want it just for me!
Check out this bright and fun pamphlet! It includes box assembly instructions, info and fun facts about all of the included items, a hint for next month’s box, and a sneak peek of the Holiday 2019 box!
Let us get to sampling!
Serenata Milk Chocolate Wafers – Buy a 6.35 oz bag for $13.49
What a delightful surprise! We actually received the full-size version of this candy bar in the “Greece” box just last month, and we loved it! Getting 2 large bags of these made my day! The collaboration of milk chocolate and wafers is always good in my book, and this snack doesn’t disappoint. Each mini bar even has an extra chocolate drizzle on top for a beautiful finish. Will I be able to share these? I did receive about 50 mini bars, but they are just so good that I’m still deciding…
Sorini Chocolate Truffles with Strawberry Pop Rocks
Oh my goodness. I am in love! These beautiful truffles from Italy have a smooth milk chocolate outside, with white chocolate and strawberry pop rocks inside for a “popping” surprise! Not only are they pretty to look at, but they taste amazing! These are definitely my favorite candy in the box, so it’s going to be hard to share these!
Roshen Milky Splash Toffee – Buy a 2.2 lb bag for $20.75
Next up we have these yummy milk flavored toffees from Ukraine. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect with these little morsels, but I was pleasantly surprised. They are soft and creamy with a light milky cream flavor in the middle – the perfect after-dinner treat! My entire family really enjoyed these – good thing they sent 2 bags!
Pineapple Salt Hard Candy
Aren’t these candies just happy rays of sunshine?! I am loving the yellow packaging and the sweet little heart shapes! I didn’t realize this, but if you buy fresh pineapple from any vendor in Thailand, you’ll receive a packet of salt to sprinkle on top! These candies are a spin-off of that tradition. The hard outer shell has a sweet pineapple flavoring with a hint of saltiness. While I prefer chocolate treats, I did find this candy to be pleasant and unique!
Orange Chocolate Toffers
How cute are these little black and orange wrappers! These are the perfect treats for Halloween! I am loving the chewy (almost Tootsie Roll taste) these little bites have, especially because they are orange flavored! Thank you, Spain!!
Sour Grape Chews
I have to admit I didn’t look very closely at the package before I ripped this bright purple package open to sample it, and boy was I in for a surprise! This grape flavored chew from Colombia started out chewy and sweet, but as it softened, it suddenly became insanely sour! It slightly reminded me of “War Heads” but a bit more palatable. My kids LOVED these, and couldn’t wait to trick my husband into eating one!
The Verdict: This box was AWESOME! Universal Yums is a wonderful box in general, but this specialty Halloween box just put them over the top! I love everything about how they put this box together; The 6 different candies from different countries, the candy display system, and the included “field guide” just shows how much thought and time this company puts into their products. This box is such a great idea to bring to Halloween parties or for trick-or-treaters, it really makes it simple, and is so unique! It also didn’t hurt that I liked all 6 varieties of candies! I can’t wait to see what they come up with next! My kids are now hoping to see a Thanksgiving box, Christmas box, Easter box, and 4th of July box!
To Wrap Up:
Can I still get this box if I sign up today? Yes. This box is a one-time purchase- but supplies are limited, so they suggest you order right away.
Value Breakdown: This box is $39.00. I received 300 pieces of candy which equals out to $0.13 a piece.
