We are major fans of international snack subscription boxes and exotic snacks in my household. So when we found out about the Universal Yums Snack Box, we just had to give it a try. 

Today, I will be sharing our experience in my honest Universal Yums review and answering some of the most frequently asked questions about this monthly snack subscription box. 

So let’s get to it!

What is Universal Yums?

Universal Yums is an international snack subscription box that explores different countries each month and includes a variety of tasty treats and an interactive guidebook. 

Special Note: You can purchase individual snacks through the Universal Yums website as well. A subscription isn’t your only option.

How it Works

The process of getting started with a subscription is extremely simple. 

Step 1: Sign up for the subscription through their website

You will have the opportunity to select the country for your first box when you start your subscription. However, it is important to note that subsequent boxes will be for whatever country Universal Yums has pre-selected. 

When signing up, you will have to select your box size (which we’ll explore more below). You will also have the option to choose from the following lengths of time for your subscription:

  • Monthly Subscription
  • Annual Subscription

Step 2: Universal Yums will ship your box

It will be communicated during sign-up when your first box will ship out. Your next box in your subscription will ship by the 15th of every month. 

Step 3: Enjoy!

Your global snack box will be delivered straight to your doorstep ready for you to enjoy!

These Stroopwafels were definitely one of our favorite snacks in the Netherlands box.

What Size Snack Boxes are Available?

There are 3 sizes available for Universal Yums boxes.

Yum Box

  • 5-7 Snacks
  • 12-page booklet with trivia questions and interactive games

Yum Yum Box

  • 10-12 Snacks (everything in the Yum Box + 5 additional snacks)
  • 16-page booklet with trivia and games

Super Yum Box

  • 15-18 Snacks (everything in the Yum Yum Box + unique drink + 5 additional full-size snacks)
  • Recipes, activities, and more!

What’s in Each Universal Yums Box

As you can see in the previous section, each of the boxes contains a variety of snacks from a specific country and an interactive booklet. 

The largest box also contains a drink and bonus content such as recipes and activities. 

Universal Yums Gift Subscription

I would like to mention that there is an option to Give a Gift and you can select the size, amount of time, and country you would like for the first box. This is a great idea for children who are homeschooled as it does provide a really unique learning experience. It is also a great gift idea for anyone who likes to try new foods.

My Personal Experience

Our first box was focused on the Netherlandsand we had a pretty nice variety of snacks. Here are a few of the new snacks we got to try in our box.

  • Chocolate Coated Cookie with Coconut
  • Roka Cheese Biscuits
  • Gouda Cheese Crispies
  • Speculoos Cookies
  • ….and more! 

I love that the box shipped so quickly and surprisingly, the kids enjoyed almost everything in it! By the way, Universal Yums does offer free shipping for subscription boxes in the United States. Yum Shop purchases over $59 also have free standard shipping. 

My husband and I really enjoyed the variety of snacks as well. There were only 2 that I didn’t care for, but the others I would definitely purchase in the future.

Now let’s break down the pros and cons of this international snack subscription. 


  • Can purchase individual products 
  • FDA-compliant
  • Great variety of exotic snacks 
  • Try snacks from a new country every month
  • Easy to start and cancel a subscription 
  • Option to skip a month 
  • Comes with a cool booklet with fun facts and activities to help you further explore the different cultures


  • Can’t customize boxes 
  • Not allergen-friendly since you can’t customize 
  • They don’t offer past boxes for sale 
  • After the first box, you’re not allowed to select a country you just get whatever country that was pre-selected for that month. 

How to Get (or Send) Your First Box 

All you need to do is sign up here to get started! 


How long does Universal Yums take to ship?

We ordered our first box on the 14th of the month, and it was delivered to our doorstep on the 22nd.

How much does a Universal Yums subscription cost?

The subscription starts at $16/box and you have the option to prepay for the year.

Is a Universal Yums Box Worth the Money?

We love our Universal Yums snack boxes! It is a great way for our family to explore different cultures and believe the value received from the boxes is totally worth it.

How Many Countries Does Universal Yums Cover?

I am not sure how many countries they cover, but we have seen dozens of different countries featured in past boxes.

Does Universal Yums Repeat Countries?

They do not repeat boxes in a single year (outside of the box you select as your first when getting started), but they may repeat boxes at certain points. I am not 100% sure though.
