Candy Club recently added several different club options that help tailor boxes to suit different candy preferences. Subscribers can now choose between three clubs: “Sours & More,” “Classics,” and “Favorites.”
To help determine which club is right for you, subscriptions now begin with a fun online quiz! (Though, if you don’t like your quiz results, you can always pick a different club.)
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.
I love sour candy and Astro Belts, so this candy is a big win for me! The fruity strips are very sour, and I like the small, poppable pieces.
“This nostalgic all sorts mix has been a British icon since the 1920’s.” It’s a fun mix of gumdrops, squares, and filled rolls. The squares and rolls remind me a bit of fondant. They’re sweet and a little chalky. This isn’t my favorite mix, but, with all the flavors and shapes, it’s certainly fun to eat.
I like chocolate, and I like gummy candy, but chocolate-flavored gummy candy? The chewy rounds have a cocoa flavor that my husband seems to like, but, unfortunately, I don’t think this treat is for me. In my book, chocolate should be chocolate.
According to Candy Club, Primrose Buttery Toffees are known for their old-fashioned flavor. I like the rich, caramel flavor of these hard candies. They remind me of Werther’s Originals.
I also received two packets of cocoa this month. With winter just around the bend, I’m sure it won’t be long until I’m scouring the cabinet for hot cocoa mix, so this is a welcome addition to the box!
Verdict: This isn’t my favorite box from Candy Club, but I really enjoyed the Quattro Sours and the cocoa mix. I’m pleased to see that they’ve modified their subscription plan to help make sure that subscribers receive the kinds of candy they prefer. 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 like getting a giant box of candy delivered to my doorstep every month.
