Candy Review - October 2016 - Canadian Candy Subscription Box + PROMO CODE

Canadian Box Addict pays for this subscription.
What is it? Candy
How Much? $29.95/month, plus tax and $11.99 shipping. Save on 3 and 6 month terms. Prices in Canadian dollars.
What’s in it? 5-7 different varieties of candy, totalling 3+ pounds

Candy is a brand new Canadian subscription box that sends over 3 pounds of candy to your door each month. Candy is Canada's monthly candy experience, offering a curated selection of candy from Canada and beyond. Boxes will include sweet, sour, spicy, and everything in between. Every month will be a different assortment. Candy also offers gift subscriptions!

Billing is on the 6th of each month and boxes are shipped from Winnipeg on the 20th of each month. Order by the 5th of the month, and you will receive your first box that month. You can cancel any time by e-mailing customer service.

This box was HEAVY! The shipping label listed it as 1.7 kilograms, which is 3.75 pounds! The flat rate shipping charge of $11.99 seems high, but for reference, the regular rate for this box to get from Winnipeg to Vancouver would have been over $18, so Candy is actually subsidizing shipping for many areas.

The box included a sheet listing all the items included, plus some candy facts and trivia.

On the flip side, the sheet lists ingredients and nutrition info. This is a great addition since the packages, which you will see below, have no details on them. A few of my friends are gluten intolerant, so we had to consult the sheet to find out what was safe for them to eat.

This is what 3.75 pounds of candy looks like!

Sour Power Berry Blue Belts
Holy moly these are sour, but also so addictive. These were a fave.

Albanese Red Raspberry Gummi Bears
These jumbo bears were sweet and fresh. 

Hot Tamales
Spicy cinnamon flavoured candies are a huge fave of mine, so I put these aside so I wouldn't have to share.

Albanese Peach Rings
These gummy peach rings are bursting with peach flavour!

Jelly Belly Very Cherry
I find jelly beans so boring, but these cherry flavour ones were quite good.

Sour Pumpkins
These black and orange pumpkin shaped candies are coated in sour sugar. The black ones taste like grape and the orange taste like... orange.

Taffy Town Slat Water Taffy Mix
I spent some time in Cannon Beach on the Oregon Coast this summer and I stocked up on delicious salt water taffy. My stock is running low so this was a welcome surprise.

The inaugural box from Candy included seven varieties of sweets, totalling 3.75 pounds of candy! This is a huge amount of candy so it's great for a family or office. I took a few bags to work and shared with my co-workers. They were thrilled! Candy makes everyone a little happier.

Interested in trying Candy? Order before November 5th, and you will receive the November box. Candy is also currently running a promo so you can automatically save 10% off for the life of your subscription.
