My Candy Express is a new subscription box packed full of CANDY.  It’s $24.99 per month on a month-to-month subscription but goes to $14.99 per month if you sign up for 6 months of sweet treats. Every box comes with up to 3 pounds of candy and includes a special treat (more candy!). I was pretty impressed with the presentation of this box, and I think it would make a great gift for a candy lover.

There wasn’t any information on the card about the candy inside. Most candy freaks could probably figure it out. Like I did.

Candy!

I thought the containers were super cute – it would be nice if they had the candy name on them! Maybe in future boxes! This is pretty much the first one! I liked that they provide a small deterrent to getting in – and prevent little hands from raiding the candy jar!

Licorice Wheels & Sour Patch

Sour Patch Green Rind Watermelon – These are delicious! And addictive.

Red Licorice Wheels – These are fun because you get to unroll them, then separate the two licorice strips! They have a great sweet strawberry flavor and are high quality.

Seattle Chocolates Candy Cane Crunch Dark Chocolate Truffle Bar – YUM!

Atomic Fireballs – Owie!

One thing I discovered while researching the retail values of the items in this box is that most candies are $5/lb in bulk retail and $22 for 5 pounds (and just over $3 per pound when you buy 30 pounds at a time!).  To make things simpler I just loaded all the candy up and weighed it – it was over 3.25 pounds not including the chocolate! We ate some before I weighed it, so I think it’s a wash on the containers. It’s an approximate retail value of $16.25 plus $3.50 for the chocolate. Let’s call it $20 in Candy! I have no idea how much it would cost at an actual candy store – very likely more.

MyCandyExpress ships via UPS 2 day air. Most online candy stores charge shipping by the weight of the candy or a flat rate of $10, so a significant part of the value is in the shipping. By getting it every month you can get less candy a little more frequently than maybe you would otherwise, and it will be fresher. This was a fun box (obviously, it’s candy!) and I would recommend it, especially on a 6 month subscription!

    I went to get this subscription. When I saw their price increase, I decided maybe not 😉

    They must have re-evaluated their prices as it’s now $35 for one month, or $25/month for 6 months, and $20/month for 12 month subscription. Have you left them comments on their website with the suggestion of labeling the candies?

    I don’t think I could justify spending that much money on candy every month. XD But I was tempted (just for a moment) when I saw that you got the sour patch watermelon because those are my absolute favorite.

      Lol! They are really good! I don’t think I had tried them before. I would send you mind but my husband would probably object!!!

    We got this one too but ours was a little different! Instead of the watermelon, we got sour cherries; however we didn’t get the candy bar (a little sad…) but I thought it was a TON of candy for the price and this just might be my favorite box!!!

      Did you get a different bonus candy? If not I would drop them a note about it!

        We got the licorice, sour cherries, and fireballs. The weight on the box said 5lbs so I’m ok with that…hopefully the boxes will match up next month though!
