Project Candy Box is a Canadian candy subscription service that sends a monthly box of sweets from around the world. Each month you will receive an assortment of different candies and treats, tied together with a theme. I first posted about Project Candy Box back in September 2014 when they launched on Kickstarter.  A year later, and they are going strong! Read my previous review here.

Every month will be a different experience and a fun, new way to sample new treats. From sweet to sour, gummy to chocolate, old to new and near to far, our candy combinations have been carefully crafted to wow your taste buds.  
 
There is no product card included. Instead the product details can be found online. Just scan the QR code on the enclosed card, or enter the link in your browser (or click here). Unfortunately it looks like the product info page hasn't been updated since July, so I'm going to wing it with my review. 

First look! I'm going to guess that it's a Back to School theme for September.

Strawberry Dream Bites ($1.17)
This is a full size box of bite size strawberry shortcake pieces in creamy coating. They are small round balls, not like the bars pictured on the box. They tasted kind of funny and artificial... and it's no wonder. The tiny print on the front of the box says "does not contain strawberries". 

Magic Colors Bubble Gum Crayons  ($1.25)
Juicy sticks of bubble gum clad in colourful crayon wrappers. There's even a sticker in the box! 

Asian Jawbreaker?
I'm not sure what these are. They're hard sugar, sugar coated and tasty. I tried the blue one and it kind of tasted like apple. The rwriting on the package looks Korean but I'm not certain.

Mini Grape Candy
This fun jar of candies is from Japan. The little round candies are flavoured like grapes, oranges, and apples. 

Dunkaroos with Chocolate Frosting ($0.48)
I remember this being so much better as a kid. The chocolate frosting was thick and artificial tasting and the cookies were hard and dry.

Skittles Desserts Flavors ($1)
Any Skittles are good Skittles. Except for those sour ones. I hate those. Dessert Skittles features key lime pie, raspberry sorbet, blueberry tart, strawberry milkshake, and orange creme. 

Applehead Apple Candy ($0.45)
These are made by the same company that created Lemonheads in the 1960's. They're sweet and sour at the same time.  

Despicable Me Minion Swirly Pop ($2)
This giant lolly pop is very cute. My niece will love it.  

e.frutti Gummi Candy Lunch Bag $1.50)
This bag contains six individually wrapped e.frutti gummy candies. There's pizza, hotdog, burger (2), fries, and cola. 

Millions ($1.95)
Millions are from the UK. They are "tiny tasty chewy sweets". 

Espeez Tie Dye Cube Pop ($0.30)
This is just a square lollipop with fun bright colours. 

The September Project Candy Box included 11 different products (14 pieces total). I couldn't find a few products online so I didn't do a proper valuation on this box. The wholesale pricing I found only totals about $10. Factoring in retail pricing, the value of this box is still quite low. The Back to School theme is great and may of the products fit theme very well. I enjoyed the Skittles and the e.frutti gummies the best!
