The mailman must think I'm crazy because I squeal with excitement when I see him deliver my monthly Universal Yums box.
We've been members for a few months now and it's quickly become one of our favorite subscription box. We use the box as a family activity and like to try something new after dinner each night. It's a fun way to try new foods and learn about different cultures (especially while we're still stuck at home)!
This month's box brought us to Germany. I wasn't really familiar with German food (except for these delicious chocolates my old manager would bring in for us around the holidays) so I was really excited to try some new things.

Universal Yums Germany Review
I loved this box and this might've been the fastest box we went through (whoops LOL). I thought it was the perfect mix of salty snacks and sweets, and everything was unique and super flavorful. As for favorites this month:
My Favorite - This was a tough one! I completely devoured the Sour Cherry Cookies as soon as I took pictures because they were SO GOOD. I also really liked the Spring Onion Rings and Cinnamon Almond Cream Wafers. The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the pulled pork chips, but my husband gladly ate them all
Little A's Favorite - Little A's become a ketchup enthusiast so not too surprising her favorite was the Ketchup Potato Sticks.
Overall the Germany box was a big hit in our house and there was something for everyone. I really liked the variety of this month's box as it contained the perfect amount of salty snacks and sweet desserts.
