The exterior of the box features cute doodles.
The sticker seal also gave us a hint about this month’s featured country.
The sticker shows an illustration of Christ the Redeemer and the country’s nickname, The Land of Palms!
The snacks are well-packed, as always.
The featured country in this box is BRAZIL!
The box is full to the brim!
This colorful map shows an illustration of Brazil. It tells us where to find iconic places such as Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer statue!
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 more details about Brazil like the local languages, relevant dates, upcoming events, etc.
Another feature on the booklet is a trivia quiz.
They also listed down the snacks in this box. 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!
This month’s YumBag features a caramel competition and I’m so excited to see which one is better!
We loved reading this before taking a bite on this month’s yums!
This box is really great! They included some recipes for Açaí Na Tigela. 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 Brazil’s most popular flavors!
Caramelos Premium Torta de Limao. These key lime pie flavored caramels are definitely something new to my tastebuds. A zesty version of caramel candy, this one has a little tartness to it. The taste is unique but it kind of grew on me!
Caramelos Premium Mousse de Maracuja. With a bit more tartness than the previous one, these caramel candies were bursting with flavor in each bite. You could really taste passion fruit and it was really good!
Mandioca Chips Cebola. Made with cassava, this snack is a level up from the regular potato chips. Each cassava chip is tough and crunchy, with a scrumptious blend of onion and parsley flavoring. It’s so good, anyone would love munching on these while watching TV or a movie!
Salsitos Pabor Pipoca. Here’s another delicious snack to munch on during binge-watching sessions. The corn puffs are light, but packed with a whole lot of flavor! The melt-in-your-mouth buttery goodness is all I needed!
Delicitos Pabor Pimenta. These wheat squares are hollow in the middle but definitely crunchy and tasty. I was bracing myself for scorching heat but there was actually none, just a salsa flavor that has a little kick of heat!
Pipoca Doce Bilu. They surely didn’t look like popcorn at all, more like dehydrated mushroom heads of some sort. The texture is soft, and they melt in your mouth a little bit. It has a sweet and salty flavor as well.
Fruit Full Sabor Abecaxi. I didn’t know pineapple flavored fruit chews are a thing in Brazil and I’m quite happy we got to try them out!
They look like Starbursts, only pineapple flavored! Each piece is individually packed so you can take them anywhere without having to worry if they’re going to be stuck altogether. I love how juicy these chews are and they’re packed with flavor!
Cory Pão Dimel. Finally, a chocolate treat! These are smooth cake bites that are covered with chocolate.
These are great dessert snacks or a picker-upper any time of the day!
They were packed in a plastic tray, and they weren’t messy to eat.
I’m a big fan of the honey bread inside, it’s really good. The chocolate covering and the sprinkles were also rich and tasty!
Pacoquita Original. These peanut candy bars were definitely a hit. We got two pieces of them in the box!
It’s a great balance between sweet and nutty. I just love how there are actual chopped nuts that you can taste!
Tropical Chocolate Branco. Another favorite from this box is this white chocolate concoction!
The back of the packaging lists down the nutrition facts including the calories you’ll get per serving.
A great blend of flavors! The creamy white chocolate enrobed with luscious caramel and smothered with banana bits, that’s how it feels with every bite! I could seriously eat this all day and not get tired of it. It’s that good!
Delicia Queijadinha Superiore. Another unique flavor combination, these cookies were flavored with cheese and coconut! The flavor profile might be new to us, but it works and I can see why. They’re simple, basic looking cookies that have a coconut taste along with a bit of saltiness from the cheese at the end. They make a great pair with a hot beverage!
Bib’s Flocos. It’s a Brazilian Crunch bar! This chocolate bar is a not on the dark side but I can for sure say that it almost tastes like a Crunch bar! I love the amount of rice crispies they put in it. It adds to the overall appeal of this chocolate bar! The kids love this as well!
Bib’s Morango Extreme. Strawberries and white chocolate have always been a great combination so I wasn’t at all surprised that I like this! The tartness of the strawberry is balanced by the sweetness of the white chocolate and, honestly, what more can I ask for?
Another amazing loot from Universal Yums! I was happy to be part of this Brazilian adventure! Getting a taste of their snacks really helped me learn more about their culture. I’m very happy with everything because I got to try out new flavors! My favorite for this month has got to be the cassava chips and the white chocolate bar! They were so good!
