Can you say easiest Halloween ever?

Halloween is one of our favorite holidays of the year. And one of the most beloved Halloween traditions is, of course, trick-or-treating. But before we don our foodie costumes or carve a pumpkin, we need to check one very important to-do off of our list: stock up on candy. And while this may sound simple, it can actually be a bit of a headache. How many bags should I buy? Fun-size or full-size bars? And does anyone actually like candy corn? (They will after trying these recipes.)

This year, let Universal Yums take care of your candy conundrum. You can skip driving around to three different stores looking for a bag of those coveted Reese’s pumpkins and let the candy come straight to you.

Introducing the Universal Yums Halloween Box

Universal Yums is a subscription service that sends you a monthly box of snacks from a different country for just $39 a pop—way cheaper than a trip. For Halloween, they’ve hand-selected six unique candies from around the world. Trick-or-treaters can pick a sweet from Colombia, Italy, Ukraine, Thailand, Spain or Greece. Think chocolate truffles filled with strawberry pop rocks and salty pineapple hard candies (which one of our editors just can’t stop eating).

What’s all included?

Each box includes 300 pieces of candy, a booklet with fun facts, bowls and a cardboard display. You’ll also find each candy’s allergen information printed right on the box—so go ahead and display that teal pumpkin with pride.

Is it just for trick-or-treaters?

In addition to traditional trick-or-treating, we love this box for other gatherings, too. It’s the perfect conversation starter at an adult costume party, a great learning experience for classroom celebrations and a super-fun theme for trunk-or-treat events. Just be sure to order yours by Friday, October 25, to make sure it arrives in time for Halloween.

Now, all that’s left is choosing which country’s treat you want to try!
