Candy Club February 2019 Review
At some point, Candy Club did an overhaul of their whole look and subscription model. Looking at the site would suggest it was as long ago as July. Unbeknownst to us, it seems like we were still grandfathered into the old model which promised *up to 3 pounds of candy* which arrived in three 16 oz. (by volume) containers and some loose mystery candy. We ended up canceling that subscription and signing up again so we could get the new experience which contains six smaller 6 oz. (by volume) containers. The other big difference is that with the new model you aren’t able to choose your candies like before, but instead pick a “candy profile” (“mostly sweets” or “mostly sours”) which determines what you’ll receive each month. They also have a larger “Party Box” size that gives you six 13-ounce containers of candy. I chose the “mostly sweets” profile, FYI.
Wild Cherry Belts, 5 oz
I love sour things but these were almost too much! They are so tart and very very cherry. I had to pace myself with these because my face was getting all scrunched up, like when you bite into a lemon! If you love sour candies these will be a winner for you. I love the crunchy sugar coating.
Peach Hearts, 7 oz
I love peach anything, and these gummies were delicious. They were soft and tasted like summer peaches. No sour or tartness here, but very sweet and fruity. Again, I am loving the crunchy sugary coating.
Sweetheart Pretzels, 3 oz
These were ok. I don’t like white chocolate, but I do find a mix of sweet and salty pretty irresistible. I wish they had been milk chocolate, but for my blood sugar level, this might have been a good thing. I can really put away some chocolate pretzels! The heart shape of these combined with the red sprinkles made them really adorable.
Chocolate Raspberry Cremes, 7 oz
These were too sweet for me. The inside is a heavy raspberry chalky cream that has to be 100% sugar. The outside chocolate was good, but I couldn’t bring myself to eat more than three of these. I feel like they would be randomly good in yogurt as it would tone the sugar down a little bit.
Neopolitan Taffy, 3 oz
I do love a good taffy. These really cute tri-colored candies were mild and sweet but still had that unmistakable taffy texture and taste. The blend of the strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate flavors was really yummy.
Red Velvet Bites, 7 oz
These were a hard pas for me. Do you know how sometimes you can literally taste red? I can’t enjoy red velvet cake for the same reason. These were also so sweet that you can only have a few at a time. Admittedly, I tend to like fruity treats over creamy or chocolate ones, so if you like cake pops or cookie dough this might be a winner for you.
Verdict: This was a mixed bag for me this month. I really did love the peach hearts, the taffy, and even the super sour cherry belts. The red velvets were not my thing, and the pretzels and cremes were just ok. I feel like this box lends itself to an office setting, where different people with different candy preferences can each find something they enjoy. Candy Club sent us 32 ounces (or 2 pounds) of candy. This means that we paid around $19.99 per pound of candy. That is expensive in my opinion, but if you are a candy enthusiast or someone who just loves sweet surprises in the mail, you might really love this sub!
