After receiving three boxes, I am finally ready to write my Universal Yums review! As you may have guessed from the title, I give it five stars. So far, we have received Ukraine, Germany, and most recently, Spain. Although I only liked one snack out of the six in my Spanish box, I’ve been super satisfied with the boxes. Plus, my husband Isaac is less picky than I am, and he loved everything I didn’t.
About Universal Yums
Before I get into the Universal Yums Review, I’d like to tell you a little more about the company. Since they opened in October 2014, Monique and Eli (with the help of their cat Hanner) have shipped over 3 million boxes! They met in early 2014 and started dating, dreaming of traveling the world together.
They both worked full-time corporate jobs and had about $4,000 in savings. Instead of using the money to go towards a world trip, they decided to use it to create a box that could take your taste buds around the world! They made so many people like me happy and have countless glowing Universal Yums reviews all over the internet.
“As we left our corporate jobs to pursue the world of business ownership full time and our lifelong dreams came true! Since then, we’ve moved across the country, built a team of people that share our dream, and of course tried so, so many delicious Yums!
It might not be in the way we imagined, but that $4,000 has taken us around the world, in the most fun and delicious way possible! We can’t wait to continue the adventure with you!”Universal Yums
Universal Yums Review
I’ve been getting the smallest box, the 5-7 snack Yum Box for $18 with tax. I’ve considered trading up to the Yum Yum Box with 10-12 snacks for $30 with tax countless times. Also, at some point, I will order JUST ONE Super Yum Box with 18-20 snacks for $40 with tax.
Although these photos say that they start with the Turkey box, I had a choice of Italy or Ukraine. Anyway, my point with all this is that it is incredibly affordable, and the smallest box is just perfect for couples who want to taste some snacks but don’t want to go overboard!
The Yum Box always came on time, was packaged safely but with no wasteful plastic materials. I love that there’s a way to get involved and vote for your favorites. You can see what people have said about the snacks in past boxes here.
Although I am an adventurous eater who will try anything, I am picky about spicy foods, caramels, and I hate anything too creamy. Luckily, we always find a way to split the snacks between Isaac and me. There is always something that we both absolutely love!
About Universal Yums Review
We’re about to have a crazy summer that includes spending a month in New York, so I just had to cancel the box temporarily. I want to end my Universal Yums review with feedback on how easy it is to cancel or skip this box! They do have a questionnaire, but they don’t try to force you to stay or give you a guilt trip, which I always find super frustrating.
I prefer to outright cancel subscriptions rather than postponing or skipping boxes, and I love that Universal Yums made it so hassle-free. I can’t wait to start a new subscription and hopefully upgrade to a larger box, not that the small one isn’t delicious enough! Follow The Travel Bug Bite for more great content and reviews!
