I am in love with this box for it had so many good items! As you can see it had some known items like the Honey Bunches of Oats and Marie Cookies by Goya but the item I thought I would like the least I tried the other day and saved half of the bottle for today! That Pulp Free Aloe Vera water with Mangosteen and Mango Juice drink by ALO is EVERYTHING! It tastes exactly like Lychee though…..I know because I recieved a pack of Lychee flavored HI CHEW in my July 2016 Universal Yums box that featured Taiwanese snacks! And IRONICALLY this drink is also made in Taiwan….hmmmm 👀 well thats all I can say about that lol. It taste more like Lychee with a hint of mango unless mangosteen tastes similar to lychee which I have never had. In any case this drink excited my taste buds and refreshed me so I immediately logged onto Amazon.com to find it. Well, sadly they only have the version with pulp so I have to check some supermarkets now. The other item that surprised me in this Degusta Box was the Loacker Chocolates called Loacker Rose of the Dolomite! I had only enjoyed the lemons wafers by Loacker that I was able to find in select stores in my area but now I will be searching for these delicious hazelnut and creamy chocolate bites by Loacker! I did try the Chipotle Mayonnaise by Sir Kensington and liked it! I plan on making some tuna sandwiches and using it tommorow. I have had this box for about a week or more now and got to fry some fish two days ago using the grapeseed flour by White Lily that was also included and it did the job! The cow tails by Goetze are not my cup of tea but the little ones love it so thats great for them as a treat. I still have to try the Chai tea by Oregon Chai ones of these days and will be back witb my two cents on that! The meat sticks by Vermont were satisfactory as well as the Popchips Ridges and I will look for them online to buy later. If you are interested in this subscription box it is $19.99 a month and your first box cab be sent to you at $9.99 if you check out my previous blog post entitiled “Patiently awaiting…..” for the link and coupon code! Enjoy 😘
This months Universal Yum Yums Box did not disappoint! The snacks this month came from Taiwan and that is a place I hope to visit some day. There were strawberry flavored corn puffs, pea and sushi flavored chips. Some very DELICIOUSLY seasoned dry noodles called Prince that were meant to eat like chips vs adding water and microwaving. Snacks made with beans and other’s with chocolate that arrived semi melted but after a few mins in the freezer were good to go! This box totally made up for the USA themed box and I look forward to next month when we will recieve snacks from Brazil! I have actually tried my hand at making a couple of popular Brazilian desserts so Im very excited! I’ll be back to share the link to my youtube unboxing and apologize in advance for the viewing image as my phone was dying but I knew I had to record then or half the goodies would be gone by the time my phone was charged. The box lasted only 3 days! If you want to you can check my youtube out its Tiegroovething! *Youtube link for video July 2016 Universal Yums Taiwan Box * Im expecting my first ever Degustaboxus so look out for that video unboxing and blog post. Until next time ✌

Hello everyone! Im just going to start out by saying that I was utterly disappointed by the USA snack themed box this month. Compared to the Greece box last month this one was lacking point blank. I dont even want to type about it. I will just leave the link to one of my youtube videos about it below. I made two because at first I didn’t use the flash due to having a low battery and then I re-recorded with flash aka switched phones lol. So heres the link to the second video with the flash for better viewing June 2016 Universal Yums USA Box
Ah man….thats all I will share for now. Kind of busy so I will be back with another post when my Ipsy Bag and/or Eggdrop box for my little one finally arrives! Whichever one comes first. Write you later
I did receive my May 2016 Universal Yums Box! But want to give a more detailed review after I have tried and hopefully enjoyed all the treats. But here is a pic of the Greece themed box I recieved 😄 I will be back here in this post to review a little later.

*Update* Okay, so today is Thursday June 16, 2016 8:32PM and after receiving the USA box for June I can say I love this box even more now that it is gone…..well all except for the tea that I shall try tomorrow morning! I forgot to take individual pictures of the items but I did upload a video to youtube and will leave the link below. I have to say that my favorite items were the Bread sticks and the Orange Chocolate bar that had a very very small hint of orange if any! My least favorite items were the Nougat with wafer sides and some sort of nut and those Rose flavored gummies 😵 lol. Just horrible really in my opinion who wants rose scented breath? Well, apparently someone does so I’ll shut up! Write you later! Youtube video for May 2016 Universal Yums Greece Box!
