Universal Yums returns to South America with a visit to Columbia.
The Bridge Arequipa Wafers were good wafer type cookies and Akex and I both rated them a 7.
The Maxcoco were more wafer cookies this time with coconut cream filling.
The Bianchi Bar with Carmelo and Mani was a chocolate bar with nuts and caramel.
The Gullets Maduritas were plantain cookies. The cookies were good at first bite but had a strange aftertaste.
The Piazza Barquillos Con Crema de Chocolate were wafer cookies with a chocolate cream filling, we both thought these were very good and would eat them regularly if available.
The Trululu Chocolates were chocolate coated gummies, OK but not a combination I would want again.
Trululu Gomitas Fresitas or Strawberry and Cream Gummies. Absolutely delicious.
Oka Loka Ovnis Frutos Rojos were fruit flavored candies.
Tocineta Limon – Bacon and lime flavored chips. Again with meat flavored snacks, yuck!
Maduritos – Plantain snack
Rizadas Mayonesas were mayonnaise flavored potato chips. They did not sound appetizing but weren’t bad at all.
Caramelo Snacky were caramel flavored corn puffs. Alex loved them, I thought they were OK.
La Nina Pipits Limon were lime flavored potato chips. Pretty good and I was happy to see so many potato chip type snacks.
Rizadas Picanticas – spicy potato chips
Tosti Arepa – Cheese and butter flavored corn tortilla chips
Turbana Garlic Plantain Chips

Columbia is known for the quality of their chocolate but I found their caramel to be superior to any I have had before. Surprisedly not being a big fan of sweets I found myself totally enjoying most of the confections in this box. I was also glad to see so many potato chip snacks.
