Dylan’s Candy Bar Box Signatures Review – June 2016
Dylan’s Candy Bar Box “provides monthly gift box packages filled with specially curated Dylans Candy Bar candy assortments, chocolates and lifestyle products.”
Subscribers can choose between the Chocolates Box, “which includes classic products like Bars, BarK and Good-to-Go bags as well surprise chocolate-y mini-bin fillables,” and the Signatures Box, which contains “whirly pops, chocolate bars, s’mores, mini-bin fillables and more… from gummies to chocolate and all sorts of sweetness in between.”
I love gummy candy, so I opted for the Signatures Box!
To help keep the candy protected from the summer heat, my box was shipped with a cold pack, and I’m happy to report that al of the chocolate I received was in great (unmelted) condition!
Unlike most subscription boxes, Dylan’s Candy Bar Box subscriptions do not auto renew. So, if you pay for a 3-month subscription you will receive only three boxes. If you’d like to receive additional boxes, you will need to place another order.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

My box contained a letter welcoming me to the Dylan’s Candy Bar Box club.
These salty and sweet caramel cups are made with Belgian dark chocolate. I love salted caramel, and these cups are really tasty.
Dylan’s Candy Bar Milk Chocolate Bar (2 oz.)- $3.25
Dylan’s Candy Bar uses Belgian chocolate for all of their bars.
I prefer dark chocolate over milk, but I’m sure my husband will make sure this bar doesn’t go uneaten!
Dylan’s Candy Bar Whirly Pop– $3.25
I don’t think I’ve eaten a lollipop like this since I was a kid! It’s so pretty, and it definitely has nostalgic appeal.
Dylan’s Candy Bar Mini Bin Filled with Gummy Bears- $16
I can’t find this exact item for sale on the Dylan’s Candy Bar site, so I’ve taken the price from the other filled mini bins available for sale.
The brand of these gummies isn’t specified, but they look and taste like Albanese 12 Flavor Gummi Bears— one of my favorites!
I love the design of this container. I think it’s perfect for setting on a desk or kitchen counter.
The little scoop is cute, too!
Verdict: I enjoyed the selection of candies that were included in my first Dylan’s Candy Bar Box. The balance of candy and chocolate was about 50/50, and everything I received tasted very fresh. I appreciate that the box was packed with care (and cool packs!), and I think Dylan’s packaging is lovely. It’s hard not to compare this box to Candy Club, since they both specialize in high-end candy. While both have great packaging and fresh treats, I think this box might be a better choice for chocolate lovers (as Candy Club focuses more on gummies and sweets). The per-box cost breakdown for this box (for a 3-month subscription) is $36, and the retail value of the items I received totals $26.50. The retail value falls short of the box cost, but I still think this box would be a fun indulgence for candy lovers. It would also make a great gift.
