Candy Club Subscription Box Review + Coupon – September 2017
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.)

Oppenheimer Atomic Extra Sour Chewy Filled Candy – Buy a large bag for $14.49
The first candies you’ll notice are always a monthly mystery that they throw in as a bonus. This month they’ve included Atomic Extra Sour candies that hail from Brazil. I’ve never had these before, so I am excited to try. They are like a sour version of Laffy Taffy! Sweet, yet pucker-inducing.
Kervan Peachy Penguin Gummi – Buy a pound for $6.99
Well, it’s hockey (pre)season again, and that means Penguins (at least here in Pittsburgh). You’d never guess these black and white gummi penguins would be peach flavored, but they are! Quite a surprise. Black candy always makes me think of licorice. These tuxedoed flightless birds are super soft, but actually don’t pack as much of a peach punch as I’d like.
Dorval Sour Power Green Apple Belts – Buy a pound for $5.35
I got these once before in Candy Club and was overwhelmed by the sourness! It still holds true this time. Each one of these 10 inch long “belts” is coated in super sour sugar that makes my taste buds scream for mercy. It’s not until moments later that you can tell that they’re green apple flavored.
Albanese Gummi Strawberry Banana Rings – Get 4.5 lbs for $15.99
The fourth and final candy this month is in the form of fruity rings, though not my favorite peach flavor. I am NOT a fan of banana flavored candy at all, so these are not exciting for me. They are squishy soft half n half strawberry and banana flavored, coated in sugar, but I can taste that fake banana through it all. 🙁
Verdict: I let Candy Club randomly choose my candy this month and it didn’t pay off for me. The penguins were the only thing I got excited about but their flavor fell flat for me. Moving forward, I have to remember to choose what I want so that it will be totally worth it for me. I received about three pounds of candy which makes the cost $12.99 per pound since the box cost a total of $38.98 after shipping.
