Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the Nostalgic Candy Club Box
Everything that we received in our box. There are a total of 10 different pieces with a combined total of 17 pieces of candy in this package.
So what is all this stuff?
Our box insert
The reverse details each of the featured candies for the month and also has some fun candy facts
Are Smarties THE most iconic candy? Quite possibly! We received three small packets full of this sugary treat. Definitely a candy from our younger years (that has somehow withstood the test of time)!
YES. When we think of childhood candy.. we mentally see a big glass case with assorted penny candies and on the counter a big cup full of Chick-O-Sticks for 10 cents! Because we are really nice we split these up amongst the kids so they could try them and they were taken aback…. they’re apparently still every bit as crunchy, sweet and peanutty as they used to be!
Another candy that has stuck around. We still find these creamy caramels in our kids Halloween bags. This packet contained 10 of the classic Goetzs Caramels… and we were surprised because we don’t ever remember these being sold in a bulk pack like this… just individually wrapped.
We are so disappointed in this blurry picture. But this is the package for the Twin Bing candies. By the time we realized our picture turned out like this … we had already tried these out!
There were 2 chocolate rounds included in this package… in the center there’s a cherry flavored cream. This used to be available in a variety of different fruit flavors but.. the people spoke and they said they liked cherry.
These root beer flavored hard candies have been around for over 100 years. We aren’t huge fans of root beer so we shared these with the kids (who loved them)!
We think this gummi cupcake wasn’t included so much for it’s retro value as much as it was for it’s fun surprise factor. It’s quite cute and tasted so yummy!
So maybe the root beer candies weren’t our wheelhouse … these were. We love creamy butterscotch and these were a dream. They’re currently in our car for something sweet on the road!
While we aren’t sure what these are called we do know that they’re from Brach’s (the same company that makes candy corn) and have a creamy, fruit flavor. We do remember these from our childhood but receiving one was always a rare and slightly random occurrence.
One of our absolute favorite candies of all time are the fruit flavored tootsie rolls. We received two in this box in the lemon and lime flavor. Our personal favorites are cherry, vanilla and lemon … so we are 1 for 3!
Are these retro? Not sure. This is another candy that we find in our kids Halloween bags… and that they won’t eat (they say it’s too spicy). For all we know these may still be the ones from our own childhoods that we could never bring ourselves to eat because they were so fiery!
This candy bar has NO POTATO… which is kind of confusing. But still delicious. A coating of coconut on the outside, dark chocolate beneath and a center of cocoa flavored mallow comprises this bar that’s been around since 1918
And just so you guys know how much we liked it.. it’s our box favorite!
So in summary
We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation and presentation. The Nostalgic Candy Club Box is a fun way to relive the past with tasty treats sent straight to your door! The quality is awesome. A lot of the companies that were included have been around well over 100 years. The presentation is great. Everything arrives perfectly. And the curation is amazing. We are really loving finding some (new?) old brands and falling in love, while also being taken back to a time when life was simpler and candy was… cheaper! If you are looking for a great candy subscription Nostalgic Candy Club has what you are looking for!
