Here’s a photo of everything unpacked from the box. It really is a lot of candy!
Candy Club often includes at least one sour candy, and I’m always pleased to see sour belts or straws in the box. These sour straws are quite puckering, and I’m a fan of the pink lemonade flavor.
Sour Watermelon Slices are one of my favorite candies, so I’m very pleased to see them included in this month’s shipment. Allan’s version is mildly sour and has a subtle watermelon flavor. They’re soft, sweet, and a little chewy.
I usually have great luck with the sweets that Candy Club sends, but these raspberry chews aren’t my favorite. The raspberry flavor is muted, and I don’t think I’d be able to pick out that they’re raspberry flavored if I didn’t already know.
These Primrose Honey Candies are something of a mystery. According to the Candy Club information card, each candy should have a liquid honey center, but every candy I’ve tried so far has been solid. I thought that perhaps Candy Club made an error or confused these with a different candy, but they’re described similarly elsewhere online. Perhaps this batch just didn’t get filled? I’m not sure. Regardless, the candy is tasty. The yellow candies, in particular, have a nice honey flavor. The wrapping is also adorable:
(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.)
These French fruit bon bons are so cute!
They’re tiny, and the fruit flavors are each distinct and delicious.
Verdict: This month’s box from Candy Club definitely had some highs and lows. The raspberry chews weren’t my favorite, and I’m a little mystified by the missing honey centers in the Primrose Honey Filled Candies. On the other hand, I’m a fan of the sour straws, bon bons, and sour watermelon. 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.
