Universal Yums October Box: Belgium

In October Mr O and I tasted snacks from… Belgium! Normally what makes the Universal Yums boxes really exciting is that we get to taste stuff that we have never tasted before or possible even heard of. Even with the South Korean box that we didn’t really like there was a weirdness factor that made it cool.

Unfortunately this is kind of where the Belgian box fell down. it wasn’t that the snacks weren’t nice. It was more that Belgium is maybe a little bit close to home.

Universal Yums August Box: Colombia

This month Mr O and I tasted snacks from Colombia in our Universal Yums box. Neither of us were particularly keen on the South Korea box so the Colombia box was a really welcome surprise. There wasn’t a single thing in it that we didn’t like, in fact there were several things we absolutely loved. I think we need to go on a food tour of Colombia! As always, pictures and videos are from my Instagram stories, so the quality might not be perfect. Also unfortunately no videos for two of the crisp flavours because WordPress refuses to upload them.

Universal Yums July box: South Korea

I received our latest Universal Yums box before we went on holiday but with all the moving we didn’t have a chance to taste anything in it. This time we were treated to snacks from South Korea and the flavours were quite strange. While the Mexican box was bursting with really powerful flavours everything in this box seemed muted and a bit synthetic, which was kind of disappointing. Read more…

Universal Yums June box: Mexico

These days it seems there is a subscription box for almost everything. It all started with beauty samples (and I will admit I briefly got in on that) and then expanded out further and further to products for pets, fitness, children and everything in between. Mr O even gets vinyl from unsigned bands and razor blades. He actually contemplated getting a sock one but seriously, who needs that many socks.
