Are you subscribed to any of the oh-so-many subscription boxes that are currently available? Personally, I am subscribed to 3: Birchbox, ipsy, and Graze (Birchbox and ipsy are $10 monthly, Graze is $6 every other week, for reference). I want to be subscribed to many, many more, but alas, I could easily spend all my money on subscription boxes, and there are other things I have to buy and pay for! You know, like heat and my mortgage. Not nearly as exciting, but necessary.
If you aren’t familiar with subscriptions, here’s a quick rundown on how they usually work: For a set price each month (or even weekly, in some cases), you are sent an assortment of items in line with the type of subscription at hand. Birchbox and ipsy are makeup subscriptions, so each month I am sent a package with 4 or 5 makeup samples (some full size!) that they think I will enjoy, based on my input from a quiz I completed when signing up. I have received a few duds here and there, but for just $10 each per month, I have discovered some great new makeup I might not have otherwise known about, and enjoyed the excitement of knowing I’d get a fun package in the mail every month. When you reach a certain age, it seems like it’s all bills, so getting lipgloss instead is A-OK!
Graze is a snack box, and I’ve actually just signed up. I haven’t received my first box yet, but I’m excited. Makeup and snacks are two of my favorite things. But, we all know what my most favorite thing is, right? (Puppies excluded, as they’re the best thing ever.) My favorite thing is likely the same as your favorite thing, and that thing is CANDY!
So where am I going with all this? Trust me – the lead-up was not without reason. I just now discovered something amazing and had to share it with all of you instantly. Ladies and gentlemen, there is a candy subscription box. Yes – you can get surprise candy in the mail every month. BEST. BOX. EVER!
I read about this subscription box, Candy Pack , at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom. She is currently hosting a giveaway, so I hope you’ll all go check out her review and enter! Want to sign up immediately whether you win or not? Hey – I can’t blame you. You can find out more about Candy Pack at CandyPack.com, but here are the main takeaways…
Choose Your Package: There are currently packages available in 4 sizes – 1 lb., 3 lb., 5 lb., and 8 lb. These packages start at $24.95 and go up to $199.60 per month. While I would love that King Size package, when I do make room in my budget to sign up, I’m going to have to get by on a Small! (Hey, 1 lb. of candy is still a good lot of candy.)
Is This Candy I’ve Already Tried: Probably not! Candy Pack sends unique candies from other countries, offering an opportunity to treat your taste buds to something they might not otherwise experience.
When Will I Get My Candy: While I haven’t seen a subscription box yet that makes any specific guarantees, Candy Pack does state that they most often ship out the first week of the month.
Good Luck in the giveaway noted above, and let me know in the comments what you think about Candy Pack. I’m certainly sweet on the idea!
