Over the past few months, Trang and I have been receiving the most amazing gifts in the mail. Universal Yums is a monthly subscription service that delivers another country’s tastiest treats straight to your door! One month you might be eating Austrian chocolates, and the next could be bacon chips from Colombia. We instantly fell in love with the idea. It’s honestly the best gift for travelers, and we’ve been hooked ever since.
What’s inside a Universal Yums Box?
Our first Universal Yums box was packed with snacks from Columbia. Having never been to the country, we were really excited to dig in and give each treat a try. It was great.
In addition to the tasty treats, Universal Yums comes with a booklet full of information about the selected snacks and country. You can also answer trivia and even listen to a Spotify playlist from that country!
If you have kids, I can’t stress enough how fun it is to read through the information with them. We get our daughter to bring over her globe every month so she can see how far the snacks came from.
Why we love it
We absolutely love trying new foods when we travel. Every country is known for something delicious, and we eventually find ourselves inside some random Market, asking a local what his or her favorite snack is. 9 out of 10 times, they’ll bring us directly to the snack aisle and happily show us which treats to try. Universal Yums is basically that helpful local. Except they’re online sending snacks straight to your home! It’s amazing!
Universal Yums is perfect for us
Having just had our second child, we can’t travel. If we’re being realistic, international travel is out for at least another 2 years. Thankfully, Universal Yums allows us to continue enjoying great snacks from all over the world as we grow our little munchkins into future travel-hungry wanderers.
Buy it for yourself or gift it to a friend
Ever since our first box, we’ve been counting down the days until the next one arrives. It’s so fun to open up a box from a new country every month and share it as a family. Each box has something for everyone. Our 3 year old always goes for the hard candies while I enjoy the chocolates, and Trang picks the chips. Regardless of who enjoys what, everyone can try a bite, and it’s a lot of fun to read about each snack.
We’ve even cooked the fried rice recipe inside the booklet of the Indonesian Yum Box. It was so good, and something we would have never tried to make if not for the fun sense of adventure each box infects you with.
We’ve loved the experience so much that we’ve gifted subscriptions to our travel friends as well.
