Here’s a photo of everything unpacked from the box. It really is a lot of candy!
Sour Peach Slices are one of my favorite candies, so I was happy to see them in the box. I love how the sour coating complements the sweet, peachy inside.
I’m a big fan of Albanese gummies. I think their recipes are great (their gummies are really soft), and they make candy in a variety of interesting and unusual flavors. These White Strawberry-Banana gummies are a great example of that. I’m not sure I could pick out the flavor of strawberry or banana, but I liked them, nonetheless.
I love hard candy with a soft center, so these Filled Red Raspberry Candies were right up my alley! The hard candy shell was sweet and a little tart, and the soft center made it impossible not to crunch into them. My candy weakness is usually reserved for gummy candy, but I might have to lock these in a cabinet because I can’t stop eating them!
The shape and packaging of these toffees reminds me of flavored Tootsie Rolls; however, these are softer and have a caramel-flavored toffee base. I haven’t tried all of the flavors yet, but, so far, the Butter Rum is my favorite.
Candy Club usually features one item in each box from a smaller dessert producer. Eleni Gianopulos is a New York City-based “dessertrepreneur” who specializes in cookies. These ginger snaps are all natural and made with a variety of spices. Candy Club also included a coupon code for 20% off your first order from Eleni’s.
Verdict: I really enjoy receiving boxes from Candy Club. They candy they send is always very fresh (never dried out), and I like that there’s usually at least one candy in the box that’s new to me. I think their packaging is well designed, and I love their signature plastic and tin containers. On their website, Candy Club mentions that each box will have a $60 retail value. While this seems a little steep, it’s in line with the pricing at Dylan’s Candy Bar. There’s no denying that this is a pricey box of candy, but I think the packaging and curation make this a great choice for gifting. I also really love opening it every month. Even though I know I could buy the same amount of candy for a lot less, opening this box always brings out my giddy, sweet-toothed inner child.
