Perfectly Baked Aunt Doos Sweet Treats Review

It’s time to go local! Today we will be reviewing a local business that makes baked goods (cookies, cupcakes, cakes, etc). I am very excited as I have had a chance to try the sweets in the past but not this assortment.


Universal Yums – Netherlands Snack Box – Review

It’s nether here nor there or some sort of dad joke like that. It’s time to review the Netherlands snack box from Universal Yums. This month we went to the middle of the snack box offering to see what that box looks like. It’s time to dive in and see what we’ve got!

Universal Yums sends you a box of snacks and candies from a different country every month. The products we select are delicious, unique, and often extremely difficult (or even impossible) to find in the United States. But we send more than incredible Yums. Each box also comes with an interactive guidebook to steer your adventure – including trivia, games, recipes, culture, and more!

It depends on where we’re going! When we’re featuring a chocolate-loving country like the Netherlands, you’ll find creamy hazelnut truffles and chocolate-covered waffles in your box. However, a box from Thailand might be filled with zesty fried seaweed and spicy pineapple candy.

No matter what country we’re featuring, you’ll always find a variety of sweet and savory snacks, all with unique flavors and spices. Our dedicated product discovery team works directly with manufacturers in the featured country, and selects only the most delightful snacks and candies to put inside your box. We explain why we chose each snack in our informative guidebook, so you can learn more about every new taste sensation!

Yes! Universal Yums purchases our products directly from the companies who make them, so we have full transparency into the ingredients used to make each product and the way they are made. We employ a food safety and compliance team that collects extensive documentation from each supplier to ensure they comply with FDA regulations.

If you have specific food safety concerns, please email us at and we would be happy to provide you with more information about our food safety practices.

Unfortunately, we are not able to individually customize the boxes. The ingredients of each snack are listed on the booklet included in your box.

Please be aware that some products are manufactured in a facility that also handles common allergens such as wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, soybeans, eggs, milk, fish, and shellfish. If you have severe food allergies please do not purchase our product.

You can! Just browse to our shop to see if any of your past favorites are available for individual sale!
