I really loved this subscription box! I received the France and Brazil boxes from February and March 2020. The variety and flavors of snacks were excellent, with plenty of chocolate, which was consistently my favorite. There were only a couple of disappointments per box since I tend to dislike hard candies in general. The packaging was a ton of fun too, with the informational pamphlet and voting card. Unfortunately, I unsubscribed since I decided to reset my snacking habits and stay away from processed foods. However, I would definitely recommend this and resubscribe occasionally when I want to treat myself and "explore the world" from my couch. :)

Hi Joshua, I am one of the founders of Universal Yums and I wanted to address your review. I'm terribly sorry that your box was lost in transit and that our team was not able to respond in our normal 24-48 hour timeline. I just checked with our customer support manager, and she assured me that we were sending you a replacement box this morning. We hope you enjoy your new box, and that arrives without any issues this time! Thank you, Monique Bernstein Co-founder, Universal Yums

Absolutely LOVE this box. It's an adventure for certain. Whether we like all the treats or not we still enjoy how nicely this box is put together (the card with all the treat/country facts is great). Awesome sub box!

Just got my first box (Japan), and I'm loving this subscription already. It's a great opportunity to sit down with the husband and kid and learn about other countries. Very much looking forward to the next one (Nigeria, if I'm guessing correctly).

I got my first box last month and LOVE it! It appears it was also their first month and they did a great job. The packing tissue even matched the country's colors and they added a card w/ fun facts about the feature country along w/ a hint to the next months visit. It a great way to try the world's snacks on a budget. Everything I tasted was great and it was cool how they added English food/nutrition labels to the products written in German. I loved it so much I ordered a gift sub for my dad, who it turns out correctly guessed the next months visit from the hints. This a great tasting box for wanna be world tasting foodies, on a budget. The price is great, the curation well done and the foods all were fun and tasty. I wish this sub all the best!

From May-December I did a monthly Super Yum Box to see if there would be enough snacks each month that I would enjoy. I am a picky eater and I fully own that it makes me a difficult person to please. I do not have any dietary restrictions (they can't accommodate dietary restrictions, by the way - I see that question a lot on their Facebook - they do list all their ingredients clearly though), I'm just picky. For those months, between my husband and I, we liked probably 95% of the snacks, so when they ran a Christmas promotion in December, we decided to go for it and get a yearly subscription. Overall we really enjoy it. Sure there's always at least 1 of the 20 that one or both of us is not willing to try, but we still find it a fun way to explore the snacks that are popular in other countries.

Universal Yum started out great. They've been slowly walking back how much you get in a box. Packaging is also flimsier.

I tried a couple of boxes but wasn't that impressed with curation. Most of it is just convenience store junk food. 7-11 munchies with a foreign wrapper but less appetizing. What tore it for me was that one of the products was beyond stale. Utterly inedible. It went in the trash. I contacted Universal Yums but they tried to spin it as the snack not suiting me. As if I don't know what stale food tastes like. Ridiculous. I messaged them back asking for a partial refund for that one product. So basically $2 toward my next box. They never responded. The combination of so-so products, lack of communication, and refusal to stand by the freshness of their products made me cancel the subscription.

Subscribed for two months. The first box that arrived was disappointing, but decided to give it another shot. The second box did not arrive. Customer service is slow to respond. Pass on this one.
