This is their first box, the December Box, which will start shipping in Dec.
Universal Yums shipping by priority mail and was delivered by USPS.
First Look: The first thing I noticed was the brightly colored tissue paper. They arranged the tissue paper to look like the German flag.
The information card had a phrase in German and it's translation. There were also faqs about Germany on the information card. Did you know the Germans invented the pregnancy test?
The back of the information card has all the snacks in the box with a picture and description. This really stood out to me, as it can be hard to identify some international snacks, without a picture.
Haribo Gold Gummy Bears: Oh my goodness this are good. Granted you can find these in the USA, but they come from Germany and I was glad to see them.
Hitschler Softi Kaubonbob: This is really soft, sweet, taffy. I tried the
Kinder Happy Hippo Hazelnut: I know Kinder, because they make that really cool Kinder Eggs with surprises in them. These hippos are made with real hazelnuts, milk and a crispy wafer. This little hippo is so cute, I hate to eat him.
Ritter Sport: This is a milk chocolate with praline. They were created by Alfred and Clara Ritter in 1912. This sounds really tasty and I can't wait to try it.
Schluckwerder Marzipan: This is chocolate covered Marzipan. I have tried something like this before, and it was really tasty!
Dr. Quendt's Dinkelchen: These contain your daily dose of fiber! These are chocolate covered crunchy bites. They didn't taste “healthy” at all, and they were really good.
Leibniz Choco Pick Up: These are described as tasting like an American s'more. I didn't tell my husband and had him taste it. C said it tasted like a s'more without the marshmallow. I agree and think they taste wonderful.
Manner Lemon Waffers: These snacks are from Austria, but Universal Yums wanted them included. These are lemon filled cream wafers. YUMMY!
Saltett's Classic: I have never been a big pretzel fan. I usually will eat a couple, if they are around, but that's about it. These pretzel sticks are a whole other story. These are very light, crispy and have just enough salt. My husband also loves these and keep snatching the bag. The bag is pretty big, so there is enough to share.
Curly Peanuts: These are like cheese curls, only made with real, salted peanuts. Because my oldest is allergic to peanuts, we don't keep peanuts in the house. i enjoyed a few and C is taking them to work to enjoy.
Naturals Paprika Chips: I agree with Universal Yums that these taste like BBQ chips with a mild after taste. I am eating these for lunch tomorrow.
Monster Munch: I saved the best for last. These are light, airy and cheesy. They taste similar to Munchos, but cheesy. I couldn't find a link to these, which makes me sad, because they will be gone tomorrow. These are cute little ghost with smiley faces. What more could you ask in a snack. I really loved these and I need to find a way to get more.
Final Thought: This was the first box for Universal Yums, and they nailed it! I didn't do a cost breakdown, as many of the products are from German websites. All the snacks I have tried so far, have been wonderful. I am not usually this impressed with food boxes, but Universal Yums has is all; cute packing, well thought out themes, and great tasting snacks.
