Price $25

IMG_20150415_104758While there are plenty of subscription boxes that feature international foods, Universal Yums is snacks from a different country or region every month. They offer two different sizes, the $13 Yum Box with 6+ snacks and the $25 Yum Yum box with 13+ snacks. Both of which include free shipping.

This month’s theme is Scandinavia which covers Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland & Iceland. The medium-sized box is flat but wide and has multiple logo stickers.

Thin rye crackers with a hint of garlic. A bit plain tasting, they would be best served with a dip rather than eaten on their own.

Close to the usual gingersnap taste, these cookies have an extra smokey flavor that makes them stand out.

IMG_20150415_105407Salmakki (Salty Licorice)

I don’t even know where to begin with this. From the awkward packaging (once you see it, you can’t unsee it) and the extremely salty taste. It’s pretty much black licorice soaked in salt. Do not like.

IMG_20150415_105209Daim Toffee

One of my favorites from this box are these small toffee bars. The filling is similar to Heath but the chocolate surrounding them has a slight yogurt taste.

IMG_20150415_110027It’s pretty great that Universal Yums can put together a box with such variety while sticking to such a specific theme like Scandanavia. Almost everything besides the salty licorice tasted good and the majority of snacks were full-sized. The in-depth description card is great and the flag-packing material was a nice touch.
