Candy Dish Club Subscription Box Review - Nov 2014 Box

Candy Dish Club is a monthly candy subscription box. Specifically, they aim to make sure everyone has some sweet treats with them at work, both for themselves and to share with others. Every month, you will be sent three different bags of candy which you select from their site. You choose three kinds of candy when you sign up and will continue to get those candies every month unless you manually login and chance your selection. (You can browse their candy selection here)

With your first month’s delivery, you also receive a special candy dish and scoop to keep your candy in!

Every month’s delivery includes a card providing you with a link to get $10 when people sign up through you, reminding you how to change your candy, and letting you know that they skip any kind of fancy packaging in order to keep costs down for everyone – including you.

The three candies I chose were Milk Chocolate Peanut Clusters (8.5 oz), Dark Chocolate Buckeyes (7.25 oz), and Dark Chocolate Mini Pretzels (8.5 oz) (can you tell I’m a chocolate lover?).

I have to say that I was seriously impressed with the quality of the candy! I tend to prefer more gourmet chocolates (as opposed to, say, Hershey chocolates or something) and these all taste great and have an awesome texture. I often pass bags of candy from subscription boxes along to friends or family, but my husband and I will definitely work our way through all of these!

This is the divided candy dish and scoop they send with your first box. It’s cute, reusable, and I think it’s a great idea that they include this for you to keep on a desk or counter! The only thing I wish were different would be to have some kind of compartment on the side to have a clean place to keep the scoop, but you can also just set it on top of the lid, too.

The Verdict: I was impressed by Candy Dish Club. Their concept is really cute, I feel l like the portion sizes are nice, and I adore the idea of having a candy dish like this for displaying treats! Also, like I said earlier, their candies (or at least these chocolatey ones I tried) are really delicious and make me want to try out more items from their selection. (FYI – in their FAQ they also say that they include a cooler pack to prevent melting if the weather is supposed to be over 80 degrees in your area when they ship.)

  1. Yeah, cute concept but for $30 a month I will stick to treatsie.

  2. This is a really cute concept…but I don’t know if I’d spend $30 on it.

  3. Hmm I love the concept of this. I do think the price is too high. These are candies you could get at your local market. I think if the price was lower or they had specialty candy it would be worth it.

  4. I wonder if it’s a typo because other areas of their site say it’s $19.95 a month.

  5. Maybe, it’s just because I’m from Ohio and we love our Buckeyes… but they look really small. They look delicious (as well as the Peanut Clusters, and pretzels for that matter). $30 seems like a lot though, even with the nice dish and scoop. I could justify that price with those items, but not without it.

  6. I just checked out the site, and they do not have a very wide selection. There is no way this is worth $30. Most of the candies are available at your local drugstore or gas station even. I think you get a much better value from Treatsie which costs $20 a month and you get amazing full size, handmade, gourmet treats that you can’t just run to the store for.

    • I agree. I just looked through everything under candy. They actually have ‘bit-o-honey’ and flavored tootsie rolls, which you can def get in the shops.. scanning through, I noticed, like you mention, most items can be purchased in shops. A lot of them look like you can get them in those $1.00 grab bags (each bag was about 3-4 oz of candy).

  7. Interested but yea uh $30? Ouch

  8. Mmmmmm buckeyes…

  9. Is it really $30 ($10 a bag) worth of candy?

  10. $20 a pound seems kind of steep for these commonly available candies. I think I’d rather have individually wrapped candies, which they have, and then you don’t need a scoop, or a divided dish.
