The 14 Best Candy Subscription Boxes of 2021
Who’s craving something sweet? That’s a silly question—isn’t everyone, always? If you’re like us and keep candy in your desk drawer, you’ll be particularly piqued by these candy subscription boxes! The sweet subscriptions you’ll find below check all the boxes: fruity, gummy, chocolate, baked goods, and even some that are paired with salty snacks so you can treat your taste buds.
Candy subscription boxes give you access to artisanal chocolates, international delicacies, and novel confections that aren’t otherwise accessible. There’s no better way to sample all of those strange Japanese Kit-Kat flavors you’ve heard so much about — and if you’re looking for something savory or salty to balance out the sweetness, you’ll find plenty of options to suit your taste.
These monthly candy boxes are just as perfect for sharing or gifting as they are for keeping all to yourself, so go ahead and explore our list, and we’ll leave the rest to you.
1. Universal Yums – Best Candy and Snack Subscription Box Overall
The Cost: Yum Boxes start at $14 per month for 5-7 snacks. Subscribe here!
What You Get: We order candy subscription boxes to experience products we’d never find on our own. That’s where Universal Yums comes in; each month, their boxes feature snacks from a different country, along with a detailed booklet with trivia, recipes, and more. You’re not just snacking, you’re learning — at least, that’s what we keep telling ourselves.
You’ll explore how other countries snack while sampling amazing new flavors. Subscribers can choose from three different subscription tiers, so you’ll find a satisfying option even if you’re a heavy snacker (and we certainly fall into that category).
Universal Yums also has a thriving community online. That’s part of the fun — you can rate each snack, then see how your opinion stacks up with other subscribers. If you’re looking for variety, Universal Yums provides an adventurous culinary experience with plenty of surprises.
Candy Subscription Boxes May Include: Universal Yum’s recent German snack box featured Marzipan bars, spring onion rings, and ketchup-flavored potato sticks.

Each box contains six cups; the Party Pack box features 13-ounce cups, while the Fun Pack features 6-ounce cups.
