This month’s Universal Yums box came from Ukraine. My Ukrainian colleague assured me that Ukraine is well known for having many chocolate factories and there was indeed plenty of chocolate in the box. There were also a fair few onion flavoured things, which was interesting. Overall it was a mixed box with some very nice snacks and some very average ones. There weren’t many new flavours so it wasn’t the most exciting box.
Potato and Onion Potato Boom
Potato and onion flavoured corn chips is a bit random. I wasn’t in love with these. Onion isn’t my favourite flavour and it was kind of strange.
Roshen Creme Brulee Chocolate
This caramel filled chocolate was so sickly sweet that I found it hard to eat. I have a very sweet tooth so that says a lot.
Dill & Sour Cream Golden Chips
These were Pringle-esque but in flat sheets. They were very light and crisp and had a lovely flavour.
Slasti Curd Waffles
I wasn’t sure about these wafers. They were fairly bog standard filled wafers but the “curd” flavour wasn’t for me. It tasted a bit artificial.
Shoud’e Cinnamon Caramel Chocolate
I have not had chocolate filled with cinnamon caramel before but this was absolutely lovely. It was a gorgeous combo and I would eat loads of these if you could get them in the UK.
Veal and Adjika Potato Boom
These crisps were very, very meaty. Meaty crisps are not my fave so they were… okay.
These were toffees with a fruit filling. They were nice but again very artificial tasting and with a weird aftertaste. Also Mr O video bombed me while I was recording eating them.
Little O nicked this jelly sweet off me immediately, probably because of the bright packaging. He really liked it and I had to hide the other one to stop him from eating that too!
Next month’s box comes from Israel. You may remember I tasted snacks from Israel a while ago that my friend was kind enough to send me. I am wondering if there will be any overlap and if I will get to taste some of my favourites again!
