Candy-Club-March-2017-Box

Candy Club is a candy subscription that sends 2-3 pounds of premier, brand name candy to you each month. Each delivery contains 4 different types of candy which you can choose yourself or leave as a surprise.

Candy-Club-March-2017-Box-Open

I’m subscribed to the custom box, which allows me to select my three main candies every month. (FYI- I’m able to choose three out of the four candies I receive in every box. The loose, individually-wrapped candies are always a surprise.)

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

Candy-Club-March-2017-Booklet

Candy-Club-March-2017-Nutrition

Each candy has its own information card with a photo of the candy, its name and on the reverse side nutritional information and an ingredients list. This month the information card was missing for the sour apple belts.

Candy-Club-March-2017-Belts

Dorval Sour Power Green Apple Belts

Yum! These sour green apple belts had some major pucker punch to them which I thought was fabulous. They were just long enough to give you a real mouthful or can easily be torn into smaller bite size pieces. This was easily my favorite of the box this month.

Candy-Club-March-2017-Butterflies

Albanese Mini Gummi Butterflies

These adorable mini butterflies came in a variety of beautiful spring colors. I prefer gummies that are coated in sugar and tend to be on the sour side so this selection was intended for my kids. They enjoyed their very soft texture and mild fruity flavor.

Candy-Club-March-2017-Strawberries

Vidal Sour Strawberries

These sugar-coated gummy strawberries were not sour to me at all. I love the bright strawberry colors and thought they looked adorable. I found them a little denser than some of the other gummy candies I have sampled from Candy Club.

Candy-Club-March-2017-Rainbow-Twist

Atkinson’s Rainbow Twists

Rainbow Twists were the loose uncustomized candy this month. The brightly colored rainbow candies are fun to look at and they taste like cherry. They’re gluten free and vegan as well.

Verdict: I have to say what a treat it is having a box filled with brightly colored candy show up on the doorstep! I don’t know who was more excited to open the box, me or the kids. It’s hard to put a value on this subscription since gummy candy in bulk could be bought cheaper, but I found this comparable to what I would pay at the fancy loose candy shop at our local mall and much more convenient. We enjoyed most of the selections this month, and everything was very fresh. I’m excited to pick new candies to try next month!

  1. I’ve had two boxes so far, for a total of 11 different candies. They’ve been really hit or miss, but having to call them to cancel makes it rough for someone with phone anxiety, and they do hit hard with the sales pitch.

    But I’m very glad to have found the sour gummi piglets! And then I found them much cheaper at Amazon — if I bought a kilogram (2.2 pounds). So yes, now I have a little less than a kilo of gummi piglets, haha!

    Your description of the gummi butterflies gives me the exact info I want, and I know it’s not easy to describe tastes and textures of foods. I will be trying them this month, because sometimes I like those very soft smooth gummies.

    • They do hit hard with the sales pitch? I have to call and cancel as well. I, too, have subbed for two months for a total of 10 containers. Its way too much candy. I’ve taken to giving them away for school events. I wish they would just do bowls of mixed candy like different sour belts in one and maybe all blue candy in another or all strawberry but different varieties. Even if they let you get a box every 3 months that would be better.

      • Not mean hard, and they do offer you a deal that’s like $10 off the regular price. I wish they’d been more upfront about having only a limited selection every month. It would be really great if they could have mixes like you said. Maybe email them the suggestion and they’ll think about it. I’ve never tried belts but I’d be more likely to if I could get a variety of flavors in one container.

        After having to call them, I try to look at how you cancel with any new subscription box I sign up for, because emailing is so much easier. With the Messy Box and Happy Mail by A Beautiful Mess, you have to “start a conversation” with them, which I think means a chat thing. I wish it were easier to just say “I don’t want to spend my money on that anymore” instead of having to justify canceling. And with 15 subscriptions, I really do need to cancel some.

    • I’m glad my review was able to help you decide on a new candy to try! Thanks for reading!

  2. I selected the sour strawberries last month and they were not good. They hardly had any flavor at all.

    This month Candy Club screwed up one of my selections and dun, dun, dun…sent me the sour strawberries instead. The item I’d selected was then sold out so I had to pick from a scant selection of things I really didn’t want.

    I signed up for 6 months and can’t wait until this subscription is up. It’s extremely overpriced and I’ve had orders wrong for 2 out of the 4 months I’ve received. While I understand the candy is typically gourmet, I did happen to notice that several of the selections are available in the Cracker Barrel gift shop (and around the same price per oz).
