We are major fans of international snack boxes and exotic snacks in my household. So when we found out about the Universal Yums Snack Subscription 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 snack subscription box.

Universal Yums is an international snack subscription box that explores different countries each month and includes a variety of snacks 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.
The process of getting started with a subscription is extremely simple.
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:
- 1 month
- 3 months
- 6 months
- 12 months
It will be communicated during sign-up when your first box will ship out. Future boxes in your subscription will ship by the 15th of every month.
Your international snack box will be delivered straight to your doorstep ready for you to enjoy!

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.
My Personal Experience
I love that the box shipped so quickly and surprisingly, the kids enjoyed almost everything in it!
My husband and I really enjoyed the variety of snacks as well. There were only 2 that I personally 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
- Great variety of exotic snacks
- Easy to start and cancel subscription
- Option to skip a month
- Comes with a cool booklet 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!
We ordered our first box on the 14th of the month, and it was delivered to our doorstep on the 22nd.
The subscription starts at $15/box and you have the option to prepay for the year.
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.
I am not sure how many countries they cover, but we have seen dozens of different countries featured in past boxes.
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.
Universal Yums is available on Amazon currently.
