Each Candy Club Box comes with a card detailing the month’s featured candies.
On the reverse, nutritional details are listed along with any relevant allergy information.
Here’s a photo of everything unpacked from the box. It really is a lot of candy!
I’ve never had Tangy Wild Strawberries before, but I’m a fan of similar sour fruit gummies (watermelon slices, sour cherries, peaches, etc). Unsurprisingly, I’m a fan of these, too! They’re a perfect balance of sweet and tart, and I think the strawberry flavor is distinct without being overpowering. (FYI- Candy Club usually includes at least one sour candy in each box, which is a good thing to consider if you’re thinking about subscribing.)
Primrose Watermelon Drops
Primrose Watermelon Drops are hard candies sanded with a sugar coating. The watermelon flavor is sweet with a substantial tang, and, while I usually prefer gummy candy, this might be my favorite candy in this month’s box! (Note: I couldn’t find the Primrose Watermelon Drops for sale online, but I believe they’re similar to these.)
Sweet’s Fruit Sours come in the following flavors: cherry, lemon, grape, tangerine, and sour apple. They have soft, gummy centers and are coated in a soft candy shell. There’s something nostalgic for me about this candy’s appearance, and I really like the assortment of flavors.
Sweet’s State Fair Salt Water Taffy is a mix of buttered popcorn, cotton candy, red licorice, and bubble gum flavored taffy. While I’m not usually a fan of buttered popcorn candy (I’m looking at you Jelly Belly Jelly Beans.), I think it might be my favorite flavor in this mix! The “butter” flavor is fairly subtle, and I like the added saltiness with the sweet corn flavor.
(This item isn’t listed on the information card, so I’m assuming it’s a bonus item that was added after the cards were printed.) Jones Candy is made by Jones Soda, so it’s no big surprise to me that the flavor tastes a lot like actual cherry cola. The “carbonation” is pretty light (there’s just a hint of effervescence), and the flavor and fizz remind me quite a bit of Bottlecaps.
Verdict: I really like Candy Club, and this box was a home run for me. I discovered five new candies and liked them all! I think the Candy Club packaging is top notch, and I appreciate the care with which they ship their products. In terms of value, Candy Club claims that each box will have a retail value of $60. I struggle a little bit with that because, while similar pricing is typical at high-end candy stores like Dylan’s Candy Bar, you can definitely purchase the same candy for a lot less if you buy it in bulk online. Still, I think Candy Club’s packaging and candy selection add a lot of value, and I think this subscription is a fun indulgence. It would also make a great gift.
