Candy Box Subscription Box Review – October 2015
Candy Box is exactly what it sounds like: a monthly subscription of candy! There are two size options, the Big Box and the Mini Box. This is a review of the Mini Box.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. For more information on how we review boxes, please be sure to check out our review process post!
The box: Candy Box
The price: $20 for the Mini Box and $40 for the Big Box; shipping is free
The products: Candies from the US, UK, Canada, Mexico, and Asia
Candy Box says that they include a mixture of candy from the US, Canada, UK, Mexico, and Asia. Most of the candy in my box is candy pretty commonly accessible in the US.
The Oh Henry candy bar is the only chocolate in the box. I don’t see these very often in the store, so I think that this was a great inclusion in the box.
The other items are all candy that I ate as a kid, but as an adult probably wouldn’t ever buy for myself! They all definitely evoked nostalgia and reminded me of the times I stood in the grocery line with my mom hoping she would tell me I could grab a candy from the strategically placed shelf next to the checkout.
Pop Rocks are still a favorite of mine! I made an ice cream with them over the summer, and kind of failed, so these made me want to try again!
The gummies were a great inclusion for an October box, and I passed them along to some kids that I knew would enjoy them.
Rock Candy is another candy that brings back some nostalgia! It’s a little more hard to find now, so I appreciated the addition here.
The Nerds Rope, dip candy, and Air Heads Bites are all new (to me) versions of some classic candy. They should be interesting to try!
One thing I appreciate about this box is that there is a good mixture of candy textures and both sweet and sour candies were included.
These were both new to me as well. The sucker is a good size, so it will definitely last a long time. I don’t enjoy suckers for the most part, so this was passed along to a coworker that loves them.
eFrutti makes quite a few different versions of the gummy food! The little hamburgers and hotdogs would be adorable at BBQs.
The Verdict: This box has an approximate value of $19.16. I do think that this is a little low, as most of the prices I found were for bulk – purchasing one of each of these items would cost more than the stated price. In general, I think the value of this box is very good for the amount and mixture of candies you receive. I would love to see more variety from different countries (since they send Canadian candy, I would LOVE to see a Coffee Crisp in one of the boxes) and I wouldn’t oppose one or two more chocolate items being added! I can see this box being a dream come true for candy fiends.
