Candy Club Subscription Box Review + Coupon – July 2015
Candy Club is a candy subscription box that sends 2-3 pounds of premier, brand name candy directly to your door each month.
Now that the weather is warm, Candy Club has added insulated packaging to help protect their candy from the heat.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

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 love Jelly Belly jelly beans (pear and peach are my favorite flavors!), so I’m excited to discover they make a range of flavors inspired by classic sodas. The mix includes: 7UP, A&W Root Beer, A&W Cream Soda, Dr Pepper, Orange Crush, and Grape Crush. I’m a big fan of this mix, and I especially like the Dr Pepper, Root Beer, and Orange Crush flavors. The Orange Crush actually tastes like orange soda- I don’t know how they do it!
I’m pleased to see Candy Club include an all-natural, non-GMO candy! The rings come in traditional, raspberry, and pink lemonade, and all of the flavors are a little sour. They’re soft and stick to your teeth when you eat them (not a bad thing, in my book).
The Allan Candy Company has been making candy for over 80 years, and many of their products have a classic flavor “straight from grandma’s candy jar.” These cherry-flavored coins are soft and gummy, and the flavor does seem a little old-fashioned. (I mean that in the best possible way.) So many modern candies have a sour edge, whereas the cherry flavor of these coins is simple and sweet.
Primrose Assorted Lemonade Drops
According to the Candy Club info card, these Lemonade Drops are brand new to the market. I think it’s exciting that Candy Club has provided their subscribers with the opportunity to sample the peach, blue raspberry, strawberry, pink, and traditional lemonade-flavored candies before anyone else. They’re tasty, and I especially like the peach lemonade flavor.
Sugar Cookie from Eleni’s New York
(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.) I’ve received cookies from Eleni’s before (from Candy Club, I believe), and I’m fairly familiar with the brand. They specialize in decorated cookies, but also make a selection of other kinds including sugar, chocolate, and crisps.
Verdict: I really like Candy Club. This box isn’t my favorite, but I still enjoyed all of the candy I received. (I think I would have preferred a bit more variety- perhaps only one lemonade-flavored candy.) Still, I discovered some new sweets, and I really enjoyed the opportunity to try the Primrose Lemonade Drops before anyone else. 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.
