Dylan's Candy Bar

DYLAN'S CANDY BAR Visit Site

Cost:

Starting at $31.59 per month

Created by Dylan Lauren in 2001, Dylan's Candy Bar is well-known in New York as offering a Willy Wonka-like experience with more than 7,000 confections in its flagship retail location. Dylan's aims to deliver an equally delightful experience with their Candy Club.

Membership Overview:

  • Candy Club Selection: 2 options, mixed candies or just chocolates
  • Duration: 3, 6, or 12 months
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Shipping: Included in the cost

You have two options for your subscription: The Signature box that has items like lollipops, gummies, and chocolates, and the chocolates-only box with candy bars, bark, and other chocolatey treats. The first shipment of both boxes comes with a cute mini-bin that's meant to be refilled with some of the treats you'll get in every package.

Subscription options include 3, 6, and 12-month plans. The Signature selection starts at $109 for three months, and the Chocolate box is slightly higher at $119 for three months. You'll pay less for longer subscriptions; for example, the year-long membership to the Signature collection works out to be just under $32/month.

Keep an eye out for extra savings, too. When we visited the site, we got a pop-up offering a 20% discount and free shipping on orders of $75+ if we entered our email address. Also, on the customer service page, we got another pop-up offering a 15% discount on our first order.

If your Candy Club subscription is a gift, you'll be able to enter a gift message on the first page of the order process. You can also download a PDF if you'd like to let someone know right away.

We did notice in the lengthy Terms and Conditions that subscriptions cannot be modified or cancelled once processed and no refunds will be given. That surprised us, since we saw that they do offer refunds for purchases of other items. Dylan's does seem to leave the door open to asking for a refund or replacement if any of your candy comes in less-than-perfect condition, but be aware that you may be out of luck if you want to cancel your subscription for some reason.

We found several customers whose chocolates arrived melted, and they said that Dylan's was very good about sending replacements - unfortunately, those replacements weren't packaged any differently and usually wound up arriving melted as well.

Another complaint we heard is that the value of the candy received isn't great. For example, one box included a gourmet candy bar, a package of chocolate-covered Swedish fish, and four novelty-shaped truffles. That works out to be approximately $10 per item - which may be worth it for a particularly tasty treat, but it's still on the expensive side compared with other Candy Club retailers.

Overall, Dylan's Candy Club offers the bright colors and delicious sweets that people have come to know and love from their retail locations, making it a terrific idea for people who want the Dylan's experience without visiting an actual brick-and-mortar store. In the future, we'd like to see them include a little more in each box, to make their pricing more competitive with the other Candy Club subscriptions in our review.

Sunshine Candy

SUNSHINE CANDY Visit Site

Cost:

Starting at $25.95 per month

Sunshine Candy has been offering its subscription Candy Box for several years, with a 2-3 lb. selection of traditional favorites, gummies, and sours. Every shipment is beautifully packaged, with bright colors, tissue paper, and ribbons around each candy bag.

Membership Overview:

  • Candy Club Selection: 3 lbs. of something gummy, something sour, and something classic
  • Duration: 1, 3, or 6 months
  • Frequency: Monthly
  • Shipping: Included in the cost

Sunshine Candy Box has three subscription plans: month-to-month for $29.95, 3 months prepaid for $27.95 per month, and 6 months prepaid for $25.95 per month. Shipping is free on all orders - and Sunshine Candy is one of the only Candy Club retailers we found that includes Alaska and Hawaii in their free shipping offer.

Orders are shipped twice per month; depending on when you start your membership, your order will arrive either at the beginning or the middle of each month.

Unfortunately, the only gift option Sunshine Candy seems to offer is to enter different addresses for shipping vs. billing. We couldn't find anywhere to put in a gift message if we wanted to send the candy club to a friend or colleague.

Compared with other Candy Clubs, Sunshine Candy comes up short in several other areas. First, they have no satisfaction guarantee or refund policy listed. In other words, if you prepay for a 6-month subscription to save the extra money, you may have no way of getting your money back if there's a problem with a delivery. Given that they have very few reviews online, and their social media accounts were last updated 10 months prior to our review, we were left wondering how active Sunshine Candy really is.

The biggest drawback, however, is the value of the candy compared with the cost. From what we could see, an average box would contain candies that are easily gotten at a lower price locally: for example, a bag of gummy worms, Lemonheads, gumballs, and Tootsie Rolls. One customer calculated that the total cost for those items would probably be $10 or less - so you're really paying a lot for the pretty packaging and the convenience of having candy come to you.

While we love Sunshine Candy's colorful package, the candy content falls flat. We think you'll probably have a sweeter experience buying your Candy Club membership from one of the higher-ranked retailers in our review.

Continued from above

Gummies, hard candies, chocolates and international snacks are just a few of the candies that your gift recipient might see in a candy box, bringing them joy over the course of a few months or a year, depending on the length of the subscription you choose. That's a much “sweeter” gift than flowers that will die in a week or an engraved pen that will eventually get lost in a desk drawer.

Of course, not all candy clubs are created equal. You'll want to carefully consider the features of each club as you decide which one is right for you. A few of the most important aspects of candy club memberships include the following:

  • Reputation. Does the company have lots of reviews, with most or all of them being positive? Do they offer a satisfaction guarantee?
  • Selection. What does your candy box include? Does it have the variety of candies you prefer? Are there several options to choose from?
  • Price. How much will your subscription cost? Are there discounts for paying in advance or for subscribing for more months? Does shipping cost extra or is it included?
  • Flexibility. Are there different membership lengths? Can you put your shipments on hold if you or your recipient will be away from home?
