I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of subscription boxes, and when I found out they made one for candy I knew I had to try it out. A lot of thing things I review I get for free in exchange for my honest review and feed back, well this is NOT one of those items. I paid for this Candy Club Box out of my own pocket for several reasons! One being that the pictures they have popping up on my Facebook feed look amazing! The color scheme is so bright and vibrant. It’s really what caught my eye, and made me contemplate purchasing a box.
I mean look how colorful this box is!
Each Candy Club subscription box comes with at least 3 lbs of candy. It comes neatly packaged in the box with 1 or two scattered candy choices on top. They pick premium candies from all across the US to feature in their box! Lets take a closer look at the candies that I received in my box!
The jelly beans above are Gimbals Sour Jelly Beans which is located in San Francisco, California. While they are very colorful and delicious, they weren’t at all what I’d call sour! Which happened to be a great thing because my son likes tangy candy, but not overly sour!
Up next you have Sour Power Wild Cherry Belts! Initially I thought these were awful, I’ve actually come around to think they were the best candy in the box!
Look how much sour powder is on those belts. Boy was my mouth-watering after eating those. You need to be careful how many you eat or they will start tearing up the insides of your cheeks! My husband needed no convincing, they were his favorite from the start.
The last container for candy were Haribo Techno Gummi Bears.
Again, they are beautifully colored, but I’d say these were my least favorite. They weren’t full of flavor like I’d expect a gummi bear to be. I found them to be overly hard as well. I don’t know if they were “old” or if they are supposed to have a hard chew on them. They were alright, nothing I’d say I NEED to have again in my candy club box!
The scattered candy was Sweet’s Salt Water Taffy and Butterfields Peach Buds. I was a huge fan of the Taffy, it I believe was a cotton candy flavor. It was really chewy, but had a smooth texture to it. The peach candy was alright, nothing to rave about, but it was nice to have a hard candy in the mixture of chewy candy.
You can purchase you box monthly for $24.99, 6 months for $22.99 or a year at $19.99. The only thing I’d recommend is the option of having a choice of TYPE of candy in the box. Say you don’t like chocolate, or you like you aren’t a fan of sour things. Over all I loved this box, and look forward to more opportunities to get them. I haven’t decided if I want to keep my subscription as it is a lot of candy. It may be cheaper to go and pick up this type of candy at your local grocer that has bulk candy. However you’re not getting the variety of premium candy from all over the US at your local grocery I don’t think. Plus the added little containers that could be used for a million different things is a very nice touch to the box!
