Candy Club Subscription Box Review + Coupon – July 2016

Candy Club is a candy subscription that sends 2-3 pounds of premier, brand name candy directly to your door each month.


Each box contains four different kinds of candy.


In warmer months, Candy Club uses insulated packaging to help protect shipments from the summer heat.

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Candy Club now offers subscribers the ability to customize their boxes! I think this is a fantastic new option, and I jumped at the chance to pick my candies this month!

I signed up for the “Custom Box” on the Candy Club website, which allowed me to select my three main candies for the month. (FYI- I was able to choose three out of the four candies I received in my box. The three candies I selected were sent in Candy Club’s signature plastic and tin containers. The loose, individually-wrapped candies were still a surprise.)


I was able to choose from 33 different kinds of candy.


For subscribers who prefer a surprise every month, Candy Club also offers a “Curated Box.” The “Curated Box” contains candies that are selected for you based on your personal taste. You can choose whether to receive sweet candy, sour candy, or a mix of both.


I received an envelope that contained an info card for each of the candies in my shipment.


The cards provide information about the month’s candies.


They also provide nutritional details.



Haribo Sour Gummy Grapefruit Slices

I’m a big fan of Haribo sweets, so I couldn’t resist selecting these Haribo Grapefruit Slices for my box this month. They’re juicy, tart, and a little sour. Best of all? They actually taste like grapefruit!



Dorval Strawberry Green Apple Sour Power Belts

Sour belts are my husband’s all-time favorite candy, and now that I’m able to customize our boxes I think we’re going to be ordering them pretty regularly! Candy Club offers a selection of different flavors (green apple, rainbow, sour cherry…), and I think these green apple & strawberry belts are one of our favorites so far.



Fini Sour Octopus

I really like sour gummy worms, so I couldn’t resist trying these sour octopuses! They’re fairly chewy and delightfully sour.


Primrose Double Honey Hard Candies

This is the second time I’ve received these honey flavored candies in one of my Candy Club boxes, and I like them. I typically prefer gummy candy over hard candy, but I like the honey flavor of these. My only complaint about them is that they’re described as having a liquid honey center, and mine are solid all the way through! (I noticed the same discrepancy the last time I received them, which is really weird.)

Verdict: I really enjoy my monthly shipment of candy from Candy Club, and I’m so excited that they now offer customization! I had a lot of fun picking out my candy this month! 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 never got the email like the box information card claimed to have 3 days to pick my own candy. Is that what you received?

    • Hi Catherine,

      I’m so sorry you weren’t able to pick your candies this month! Yes, I received an email notification that I had three days to go online and make my selection. Maybe try reaching out to customer service?

      • I couldn’t figure out how to sign up to be able to pick my candies so I emailed customer service and they had to switch my membership on their end which they did right away and then I did get the email to pick!

        I loved having the option to pick–so much fun.

  2. Those grapefruit slices sound delicious! (Plus I love anything made by Haribo!)
