New Candy Subscription Box: Mexican Candy Box

I just found out about a new candy subscription box that specializes in Mexican candy!

The Box: Mexican Candy Box

The Cost: $12-$20 a month depending on the size you want.

The Products: Each month you’ll receive a surprise selection of 8 to 10 different kinds of candy and snacks from Mexico. Remember, it’s a surprise – you won’t be able to choose specific items.  Typically half of the items will be sweet, while the other will by spicy, and a few may be sour.

Ships to: US only.

What do you think of Mexican Candy Box? I’ve never tried spicy candy before, but I’m intrigued!

  1. Yummy, Mexican candy! Thankfully, living in LA, you can get lots of choices for not only Mexican, but Central American and South American candies. Cute idea!

  2. Make sure it is safe. There is lead in some Mexican candy. yucko! Google it, it is true.

  3. I love Mexican candy! I grew up in El Paso, right on the border, so it’s easy to get here. I would never pay that price for a subscription box, though, since the candies are so cheap here I can get a lot for that price, instead of only 8 to 10. I’m used to paying only 5 to 75 cents for individual candies…so $12 to $20 could get me many bags full.

  4. Be careful – Mexican candy is often loaded with lead. I would not touch the stuff or ever let my kids near it.

    • I’m sorry that you think that Dawn. Surely if there was as much lead as you say then I’d be dead! My husband is from Mexico, we always bring back tons of candy from mexico, Squinkles, Lucas, Pulparindo, Pico Pepino. TONS of it and neither of us have ever gotten sick from it.
      May I ask where you’ve heard there is lead in Mexican candies? Because I’ve never heard that before

      • Leesha, southern California a few years ago found some food items from Mexico, India, and other countries to have unacceptable levels of lead. The California Department of Health offers alerts for recalls, bans, and shows testing results from their Lead in Candy Interagency Collaborative and closely monitors the issue. Thankfully, there are still lots of safe candies left to choose from, and the manufactures involved have improved their production practices since then.

        That alerts list is something we are following to make sure we only provide the safest and approved snacks for you. I have added this question to our FAQs page on our site.

  5. I grew up in south Texas (Rio Grande Valley) right near the Mexican border and I can tell you Mexican candy is amazing! Some might be an acquired taste like stuff made out of Lucas. A lot of the candy has chili powder over sweet hard candy, as well. Obleas con Cajeta are my favorite, though. I’m going to have to look into this subscription. 😉

  6. I will definitely be trying this out! My family grew up on Mexican Candy I think I’ll be trying out the biggest box so I can send some to my Aunt who moved to Florida and isn’t able to get Mexican Candy as easily as I am since I still live in Southern CA.

    • Michelle, that’s one of the reasons we started Mexican Candy Box. While people who live in Texas may have access to lots of hispanic/latino stores, there are many in other parts of the country that don’t. This will be a great way to share!

      Dawn, I’m sorry you think the candy may have lead. All of our candies are sourced from vendors in the US.

      Diana G, the Obleas de Cajeta are really good! Lucas brand candy can be intense – you’ll just have to try ’em out.

      Kimberly K., we send out 8 to 10 different kinds of candy, and more than one of each of certain kinds. You’ll always have more than ten in the Solo (individual) size, and more than that in the other sizes.
