The exterior of the box features cute doodles.
The sticker seal also gave us a hint about this month’s featured country.
The snacks are well-packed, as always.
The featured country in this box is FRANCE!
The box is full to brim!
There’s a sheet for The Official Yum Awards, where you can rate the snacks!
Aside from the sheet, we also got an awesome booklet!
They even provided a sneak peek for next month’s box!
It contains details of featured countries like the local languages, relevant dates, upcoming events, etc.
Another feature on the booklet is a trivia quiz.
Each snack comes with a photo and a long description in the booklet!
They even included some trivia or history about the snack and how it might taste! I’m getting more and more excited!
We loved reading this before taking a bite on this month’s yums!
In this booklet, we get to learn more about French fashion and some amazing books made by the French!
This box is really great! They included some recipes for Croque Madame. The booklet also holds the answer key for when you want to check how well you did on the trivia quiz.
Everything in my box!
Yum Bag. This Yum Bag contains France’s most popular flavors!
You know the phrase “good things come in small packages”? The Yum bag is that phrase embodied
As we’re searching the world each month for the best Yums to bring you, we often stumble on smaller finds that are big on crazy flavor, but small in size. This bag is loaded with those discoveries. Inside this bag, there will be some Yums that you’ll wish there were more of, and others that you’ll wish we never found! But that’s all a part of the fun!
Dig in and have a good time!
Here are the candies from our Yum Bag, Têtes Brûlées Gout Cola, Têtes Brûlées, and Caramels con Fleur de Sel.
Têtes Brûlées Gout Cola. These candy bars taste like cola but with a tangy twist that will make your lips pucker. They’re soft, chewy, and definitely flavorful. I love cola-flavored candies and this one didn’t disappoint.
Têtes Brûlées. This is from the same brand that made the previous candy. The sweet peach tea flavor is so good but a few seconds in and I can already feel the sour filling seeping through. There are other flavors too, like the tropical one, but both of them have that sour filling! It’s great if you’re into sour candies, it will make your mouth water like crazy, in a good way!
Caramels con Fleur de Sel. Probably my favorite candy from this bunch! This has a great balance of creamy caramel and salted buttery goodness! Sweet and delectable, I can definitely see why salted caramels are all the rage these days. This one is so good that I didn’t even notice I finished everything already! Now here I am, wishing there was just more!
Bret’s Au Fromage du Jura. Made with premium French potatoes, this one is really light and crunchy. The Jura cheese flavor is unique compared to the cheese flavors I was used to but it’s really good. Jura Cheese comes from mountain cows. It has a unique savory flavor. I love that the chips have ridges so the flavor sticks more to it. It’s the perfect balance of salty with just a tiny hint of sweetness.
Sibell Chips Saveur Vinaigre. I can smell the vinegar as soon as I opened the pack! It’s nicely salted which gives a great balance of the salty and sour flavors. Each bite gives you a crunchy satisfaction because the blend of flavors is just amazing! This one goes in my favorites for the month!
Sibell Tube a Grignoter Fromage. Who’d have thought these cute little tubes will be packed with flavor? They’re quite savory and a bit cheesy which even my kids couldn’t resist! Each bite is crunchy and satisfying. It’s a perfect snack for a movie night!
Fraisoo’ Bool. These strawberry-flavored gummy candies and they are super good! It’s a sure hit for the kids as they gobbled all this up in just a few minutes! Apparently, French royals were the first to farm strawberries and they continue to excel in growing strawberries and making strawberry-flavored treats today!
Les Sables de La Mére Poulard. These biscuits are called “sables,” the French word for sand, because they are made with flour and sugar that resemble sand!
These cookies were made with carefully selected ingredients using the same recipes since 1888!
The biscuits come sealed in this plastic pouch to maintain the highest quality. They were light and buttery, and they go well with a warm drink like tea or hot chocolate!
Raspberry Mini Roll. We got to thank France for making such delicious desserts like this one! It’s a sweet raspberry jam enrobed in a soft, fluffy cake!
This is actually really good! The combination of the smooth and soft sponge cake with the tartness of the raspberry filling is just beyond yummy!
Truffles Bar by Mathez. This one of our favorites from this box! The flavor was so rich and decadent, I wanted more when I finished them!
Lightly dusted with bitter dark chocolate powder, it highlights the flavor of the milk chocolate ganache inside! Such a great balance between two different chocolates. I love this because of how it satisfies my cravings without being overly sweet!
Cemoi Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt Crystals. Who would have thought you could put sea salt in dark chocolate too? Of course, French!
And oh boy were they good!
Each bite is just filled with that deep cocoa flavor that’s rich and bittersweet…
But then the sea salt breaks the flavor apart, giving you a refreshingly new taste of the dark chocolate. Truly a pairing you could easily get addicted to. This may be my new guilty pleasure so I’m saving some up for another time!
Jacquot Almond Truffles. We got more truffles here, and they came in fancy packaging!
It has a brief introduction of the company which made it.
A sticker says that the company is committed to quality and sustainable cocoa farming.
Almonds are everywhere in France! No wonder they have almond-flavored truffles, which are just so good. The ganache inside was smooth and creamy. I liked how it’s not too sweet because the cocoa powder balances it out.
It’s another amazing Universal Yums box! This is truly a great way to try out new snacks! And not just regular snacks, they’re snacks from all over the world! My whole family always looks forward to this box. This month, my favorite has got to be the truffles bar. Each bite is just pure rich chocolatey goodness! The gummies were a hit with the kids, no doubt! Overall, we’re happy with this batch of goodies! It felt like having a walk through in France while tasting amazing snacks! Can’t wait for the next box! From the clue, I think it’s Brazil! I wonder what snacks we’ll be getting then. We’re definitely looking forward to it!
