CandyClub-May-2016-Bears

Albanese All Natural Flavored & Colored Gummi Bears

Albanese gummies are regularly included in Candy Club boxes, and I’m a big fan. Their flavors are excellent, and I think the soft consistency is perfect.

CandyClub-May-2016-Bears2

I couldn’t find this variety available on the Albanese site, but they remind me of the Sunny Bears I sometimes buy in bulk at Whole Foods.

CandyClub-May-2016-Belts

Dorval Sour Power Strawberry Banana Belts

Sour Belts are my husband’s all-time favorite candy, and he was very excited to receive a flavor he’s never tried before.

CandyClub-May-2016-Belts2

The banana flavor is pretty subtle (the belts mostly taste like berries).

CandyClub-May-2016-Eggs

Yum Junkie Petite Pufflettes

Okay, first of all, how cute is the name “Petite Pufflettes”?

CandyClub-May-2016-Eggs2

These soft and fluffy candies are kind of like a cross between gummies and marshmallows. The flavors are great- I would definitely buy these again!

CandyClub-May-2016-Balls

Atkinson’s Cinnamon Balls

Cinnamon candies were never my favorite growing up, but I like them a little bit more now that I’m older. Still, I don’t know that I’ll go through all of these. I might have to find a better home for them.

Verdict: I always look forward to my monthly box from Candy Club. There’s something so fun about receiving a giant box of candy! I enjoyed all of the candy in this month’s box, but I especially enjoyed the Albanese bears and Petite Pufflettes. In terms of value, Candy Club says that each box will have a retail value of $60. You can certainly pay that much for candy at high-end candy stores (like Sugarfina and Dylan’s Candy Bar), but I think it’s important to point out that nearly all of the candy in this month’s box is available for much less if you buy it in bulk online. Still, even though this subscription doesn’t offer superb value for money, I think it’s a lot of fun.

Do you have a sweet tooth? Do you subscribe to Candy Club?

  1. I’ve some months enjoyed this club, but I’m really tired of receiving gummy candies… They just send so many like these. Last month I hated that everything I received was cherry flavored in the sour box, did not like it at all. I’ll probably cancel this after my six months are up.

  2. They changed the little containers, i wanted to join just for the jars. Guess i saved some money!

  3. The club names are different now and they said on Facebook that they start customization next month.
