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.

This is a review of Candy Club’s Custom, $39.99, box.

Candy Club October 2018 Review

info cards nutritional info

You’ll get info cards that describe the candy as well as list the nutritional info on the back. They don’t always send all of them. This month I only got info for 2 of 4.

Sweet's Cotton Candy Salt Water Taffy

Sweet’s Cotton Candy Salt Water Taffy, 2.6 oz.

The loose candy this month is salt water taffy whiiiich is not my favorite but these are actually really tasty. I’m surprised how much I like these! They’re incredibly soft and chewy and are quite sweet but not overbearing with the cotton candy flavor. These taste a lot like the real thing.

GUSTAF'S® SOUR MINI GUMMY PIGLETS looking down at GUSTAF'S® SOUR MINI GUMMY PIGLETS

Gustaf’s Sour Mini Gummy Piglets, 12.1 oz.

I could not pass up these adorable piggies! Upon opening, I could immediately smell the sweetness which is a berry flavor. They are quite sour which I like and are rounding out to be pretty addictive.

ARWAY® CHOCOLATE TOFFEE PEANUTS looking down at ARWAY® CHOCOLATE TOFFEE PEANUTS

Arway Chocolate Toffee Peanuts, 10.2 oz.

Ohhh yea- I love toffee so these HIT THE SPOT. It all starts with a simple peanut. From there, these babies are dunked in toffee, then coated in milky chocolate, and dusted with some powdered sugar. Sweetness upon sweetness- could you imagine these in ice cream? I may need to crush them up and make it happen.

ZACHARY® MAPLE NUT CLUSTER CHOCOLATE COVERED looking down at ZACHARY® MAPLE NUT CLUSTER CHOCOLATE COVERED

Zachary Chocolate Covered Maple Nut Clusters, 9.5 oz. 

Maple candy isn’t normally my thing unless I’m at a maple syrup festival but these seemed like a nice fall treat and I’m a sucker for chocolate covered clusters. The maple isn’t super prominent and is in sort of a paste form. Just one of these satisfies my sweet tooth after a meal so they’ll last me a little longer than the other candies.

Verdict: Aside from Candy Club’s prices, I really do enjoy the candy they sell and usually like everything I get. This time I got a total of 34.4 ounces total or 2.15 pounds which seems too steep for over $48.00 a month.

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.

Coupon – Use this link to get $20 off your first order!

Value Breakdown: At $48.98 for this box on the month-to-month plan, you’re paying about $22.78 per pound of candy.

  1. You can get this from amazon now and get free shipping- though it’s still crazy expensive!

  2. So expensive….nuts…looks good but i truely miss the Amazon sweet surprise box…..don’t know why they stopped…so sad!

  3. i agree, ladies…this may be the most over-priced & useless sub i’m aware of…

  4. I can’t believe MSA is still paying for this WAY overpriced sub!

    • I thought the same thing! This can’t possibly be worth the cost to review it!

    • I bet the two posts that get the most clicks are the ones we all mock (this, Oreo, Oprah back in the day) and the ones with pets, though. The cost might balance out.

      • LOL that’s probably true. I shamelessly miss the Oreo reviews….

  5. I am surprised this is still being reviewed. At that price, I would like to spend that money on some gourmet chocolates.
