Candy Box is a monthly subscription box that sends an assortment of sweet treats right to your door.
Each box will contain 7 to 12 full sized treats ranging from chocolate bars, to hard candy, retro treats, taffy, and everything in between. There’s also an option for a larger box that includes 15 to 20 items.
Subscriptions are $20/month for the Mini Box, and $40/month for the Big Box. Discounted rates are available for multi-month commitments and shipping is FREE to US & Canada.
Let’s see what’s in the October 2015 Candy Box!
The plain white box was shipped via priority mail.
A look inside. The Candy Box logo was stamped on the inner lid and the contents were all wrapped in tissue paper.
The candy!!! There wasn’t an info card, so I’ll just jump right to the treats…
SweeTarts Soft & Chewy Ropes in Cherry Punch – These are chewy cherry candy ropes with a fruit punch filling. I was surprised to see that they don’t contain any artificial flavors or colors!
Wild Berry Skittles – Skittles happen to be one of the few “chewy” candies that are actually vegan-friendly (gelatin-free!). Always happy to see these. (I just may have stole all of the Skittles from my kid’s Halloween haul this year… Shhh…)
Whoppers – The original crunchy malted milk balls with a creamy chocolate coating.
Jelly Belly Sours – Classic gourmet jelly beans with a sour twist. Flavors included Sour Apple, Sour Orange, Sour Cherry, Sour Grape, Sour Lemon.
Nerds – I LOVED these when I was little and thought the cartoon Nerd guys on the package were super cute (I was a weird kid). This box features both peach and wild berry flavors.
Nestle Butterfinger Bar – I could never really get into Butterfingers. The flavor was fine, but it used to drive me nuts when the toffee-ish candy got stuck in my teeth. Boo.
Hershey’s Cookies ‘n Creme Bar – I don’t think I’ve ever had one of these. A creamy white chocolate Hershey’s bar with crunchy cookie bits.
Tropical Dots – This tropical version of the classic Dots candy features 5 flavors: Island Nectar, Wild Mango, Grapefruit Cooler, Carambola Melon, and Paradise Punch.
Slo Poke Chewy Caramel Candy – A chewy caramel candy made in the USA for over 80 years. According to the package, it now has a “longer chew”. Yay? 😉
Candy Necklace – Ah, the candy necklace. This one is a lot more brightly colored than the ones I remember buying. Mine were always light pastel colors (like the Smarties above).
Giant Smarties – I know people like these, but I’ll forever remember them as the candy we got 63,949 of on Halloween and no one ate. 😉
Cotton Candy Bubble Yum – Ha! What’s up with the punk rock duck on the package?! Way to be edgy, Bubble Yum.
Chewy Tropical Lemonhead – A chewy, tropical version of the classic Lemonhead candies.
E.Frutti Fried Eggs Gummy Candy – Oddly enough, this “fried egg” gummy is actually peach flavored. Not that I’d think it would be egg flavored, but still… An odd combo.
Charms Blow Pop – A blue raspberry flavored lollipop with a bubble gum center.
E.Frutti Pizza Gummi Candy – More gummy candy. This one looks a bit more appetizing than the fried egg one. 😉
Candy Box is clearly a great subscription box for anyone with a serious sweet tooth! They included a wide variety of different candies and while I didn’t do a total cost breakdown, I’d say $20 shipped is a fair price for a full box of sweet treats.
