Candy Club Subscription Box Review + Coupon – August 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

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.

You’ll receive four different types of candy each month. Three will arrive in cups and the fourth will be loose candy in the box.

They no longer offer the option of selecting sweets, sours, or sweets + sours – instead, you’ll take a short quiz to decide what types of candies you’d like to receive each month.

The box changes each month and I really love the mint color they chose this time! I also think that Candy Club’s packaging is kind of unparalleled by others. It’s always fun, sturdy, and nothing gets melty or busted thanks to the silver insulated bubble wrap. The containers are also really cute.

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

Candy Club usually includes some info cards, but nothing came in this particular shipment except for the nutritional cards. Even then, I only received two of the four candies I received.

They always include some loose, individually wrapped surprise candy each month, and this month it’s Zots! I was pretty excited to see these! I ate them a lot as a kid. They’re fruity hard candies filled with a sour fizzy powder, so they are really fun to eat!

Sweetworks Lotsa Sours Candy – (Buy 2.5 lbs. for $11.99)

The first candy I chose this month are these colorful sours! They are sort of like Spree, which are almost like smarties with a smooth candy shell (except sour). Although the outer shell doesn’t offer much flavor, these are great on the inside and come in all the best fruity flavors like apple, orange, watermelon, strawberry, and raspberry. They aren’t *too* sour at all, either. They would look lovely in a candy dish on your desk! 😉

Arway Dark Chocolate Coffee Beans – (Buy 1 lb. of a similar for $10.99)

I knew I couldn’t possibly pass up some chocolate, so I decided to go with classic dark chocolate covered espresso beans! I love coffee, and these babies are a perfect afternoon pick-me-up snack that satiates my sweet tooth, along with perking me up in the mid-afternoon! I’m really sensitive to caffeine though, so I will have to restrain myself from snacking on these too late in the day! Tough!

Buttered Popcorn Flavored Jelly Belly Jelly Beans (Buy 1 lb for $12.54 on Amazon)

Yep- I’m one of those people who love buttered popcorn Jelly Bellies! True story, Emily (from here at MSA) got me a mason jar full of them as a little Christmas gift one year because she knows of (and is disgusted by) my obsession with these. They just taste SO MUCH like actual buttered popcorn that it astounds me! It makes no sense whatsoever, but that is the magic of Jelly Belly, I suppose. Very happy to see these offered by Candy Club!

Verdict: Candy Club is super fun to open and I like that I’m able to choose the candy I want (because I’m picky) or have them surprise me (if I’m feeling lucky). They send between 2-3 pounds each time, which ends up being a little over $11 per pound. That’s pretty on-par with other candy prices online but depends on what you choose. Also, you’d save yourself quite a bundle if you subscribe for a year since it’s $8 less per month that way! There’s no way I can eat three pounds of candy alone each month (I’d probably get sick of the ones I have), but working in an office, or splitting it with friends is a great way to put this subscription to use! 

Do you order buttered popcorn Jelly Bellies through Candy Club? Do you think I’m gross for loving them?
