Candy Club Subscription Box Review + Coupon – August 2018
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 (which you can choose or allow them to) and the fourth will be loose candy in the box that comes as a mystery.

Candy Club August 2018 Review
Since it’s getting hot out there now, Candy Club has added insulating material to prevent your candies from melting in transit.
You’ll get info cards that describe the candy as well as list the nutritional info on the back.
Atkinson’s Slo-Poke Bite Size, 1.63 ounces
I don’t know if it’s just me but it seems like the loose candy amount keeps shrinking in this sub as time goes by. Maybe it’s determined by the weight or cost of the candy, but I only received 9 Slo Pokes in this box. I rather like Slo Pokes because they are similar but chewier and easier to eat than a Sugar Daddy.
Fini 2 Faced Wheel Licorice, 9.13 ounces
These looked so colorful and fun that I had to try them. I think I’ve had other brands before that tasted like plastic, but these are quite fruity! They’re also really soft and taste fresh. Unlike some candies, the different colors here actually do taste different. They’re fun to eat since you can unroll them and even pull the two flavors apart. These are great in my opinion!
Zachary Dark Chocolate Blueberries, 11 ounces
I always choose at least one chocolate item in this sub to break up the fruity and gummy candies that I’m drawn to visually. These dark chocolate covered blueberries are amazing! I can’t recall the last time I had something like this since I normally go for chocolate covered nuts or peanut buttery items, but these really have a wonderful fresh flavor. I’ve been into dark chocolate more as I get older and I have a feeling that this is the best way to get in some antioxidants! 😉
Sweet’s Fruit Slices, 9.63 ounces
Fruity gummies are a favorite of mine, so these fruit slices are right up my alley. They happen to be non-GMO and colored with natural vegetable extracts, so I feel a bit better about eating these over some other artificially colored ones. There are three colors/flavors that include orange, lemon, and pink grapefruit. The pink grapefruit is the best since they have a bit of tartness to them, but I rather like all of these.
Verdict: Soooo, I just realized that Candy Club’s price went up by TEN DOLLARS a month. I’m not sure exactly when it happened, but I am just blown away. As I’ve mentioned in the last few reviews, traditional bulk candy shops charge you by weight, and Candy Club says they send *up to* 3 pounds of candy, but they are actually sending you candy by volume since they pack your choices into three 16 ounce containers. This seems a little tricky. The bonus loose candy weighed the least at just 1.63 ounces this month. Although I liked all of the candies I received, I got a total of 1.96 pounds (or 31.39 ounces) for what cost almost $50.00. Paying $24.99 per pound for this candy just seems outrageous to me personally.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You won’t get this exact box since you can either choose your candy or have it chosen at random for you and the selection changes all the time.
