You’ll get a new selection of up to 7 chocolate bars in various sizes (full-size and mini), bags of crisps, biscuits, cookies, candies and lollipops. The contents are the kind of snacks and candy you’d expect to find at any high street shop. These boxes are just a convenient way to get in a monthly supply of candy and snacks.

Super Loot

Best premium candy subscription

Super Loot candy subscription

For £19.99 a month, the Candy Subscription Mystery Box from Super Loot is a monthly surprise of premium British and international brand candy and other sweet treats that would cost you at least £35 if you bought them in the shops. The subscription boxes have a retro theme with nostalgic favourites from good old English and American candy stores. You’ll get to try out new candies each month as no two boxes are ever the same. The candy is well packed to ensure the boxes reach you in pristine condition.

Korea Treat Box

Best Korean candy subscription

Korea Treat candy subscription box

The Korean pop culture, K-Pop, is trending among young teenagers worldwide right now with popular Korean bands like BTS being massively influential among western and Asian tweens, who love anything with a Korean theme. Treat your favourite tween to a monthly Korea Treat Box subscription. Subscribe and save with a six-month subscription and get free worldwide shipping plus a Korean silk bag in every box along with a new selection of Korean snacks and candies every month.

Sakuraco Japanese Sweets & Snacks

Best authentic Japanese sweets and snack subscription box

Sukuraco Japanese candy subscription

We love the ornately oriental-themed subscription boxes from Sakuraco, which give you a really immersive experience that promises to introduce you to 20 new seasonal Japanese candies and savoury treats every month. Try traditional Japanese sweet treats such as Mochi, Manju & Yokan cakes from Castella to Taiyaki plus other oriental edibles like Senbei and Konpeito exclusively from the local makers in the Land of the Rising Sun. You’ll get Matcha, Hojicha and seasonal teas in the monthly boxes along with ceramics, chopsticks and patterned furoshiki cloth to really make a meal of it in true Japanese style.

Mr Big Tops Mystery Box

Best candy subscription box for road trips

Mr Big Tops candy subscription box

This candy subscription is a really smart idea for packing sweets when going on a road trip. The Mr Big Tops travelling sweet box has 4 compartments that pop open like a large advent calendar to reveal a surprise selection of candy in each section. Altogether you get six 60-gram bags of candies and sweets including handfuls of retro favourites. A handy option with this candy subscription is being able to pre order for a specific date. The monthly deliveries are via first-class Royal Mail and sent within 3 days of ordering. Allow 7 days for delivery. The postage cost is included in the price of the subscription.

Snack Surprise

Best candy subscription from different countries

Snack surprise international candy subscription box

Ever wondered what the Belgians or the Kiwis snack on? The Snack Surprise subscription box is the best way to experience different types of candy from around the world. The New Zealand-themed box we had delivered in June came with an information guide and was packed with Kiwi classics that we’d never heard of but were suspiciously like candy with other names here in the UK. We’re pretty sure the ‘Fabulicious Sherbert Fizz’ is the same as a UK’s Wham bar but the chewy Pixie Caramel Bar, Whittaker’s Peanut Slab and the Pascall Pineapple Lumps are unique New Zealand candies that were fun to try for the first time. Shipping is free for delivery in the United Kingdom.

Candy German

Best German candy subscription box

Candy German subscription box

German candy aficionados Mark and Natascha from Cologne put together a creative package of exclusively German candy for their subscribers each month. The pair are justly proud of their homeland’s confectionery; considered by some to be the finest in the world, and which you won’t find in shops beyond Germany’s borders.

The pair hand pick each month’s selection of between 6 and 8 candies made exclusively in Germany, including chocolates, wine gums and cookies as well as authentic candies. We have to say that there’s something distinctly different about real German Kinder Eggs from their country of origin. Give the Geman candy subscription a try for 1 month, 3 months or 6 months at a time.

Auntie Ammie’s Candy

Best American candy subscription box

Aunty Ammie's Candy subscription

Aunty Ammie’s Candy has historical roots going back hundreds of years as a quintessential British sweet shop and newsagent. Ammie grew up in the shop stocked with candies from around the world but since 2013, Ammie and her husband have been delivering subscription boxes of English and American candy all over the UK. Ammie and her husband boast a stockpile of more than 700 varieties of candies and snacks, including a huge variety of American candy. A cheap and simple option for a monthly supply of American retro 1980s favourites is their American Candy Variety Pack containing 6 different flavours from the Ferreira Range of Chewy Lemonhead Candy alongside Nestle Runts for just £7.50 per month. You’ll have to pay extra for delivery of small subscriptions but the cost of the candy is much cheaper than buying from stores. Shipping is free in the UK and the Republic of Ireland for orders over £60.

Monthly Chocolate Box

Best luxury chocolate candy

Monthly chocolate candy The Chocolatier

This monthly box of chocolate candy is featured in our article about the Best Chocolate Subscription boxes but worth mentioning here if your desire to explore new candy creations extends to chocolate treats. The 18 water ganache truffles and pralines from The Chocolatier, founded by the chef of a 1-Michelin star restaurant, are a healthy alternative to sugary candies. They are made with quality fresh ingredients and with no artificial additives and come in six fresh exotic flavours each month. They are gluten free too.

Conscious Candy

Best vegan-friendly candy subscription

Conscious Candy vegan subscription

Conscious Candy subscriptions go the extra mile to ensure your candy indulgence is a guilt-free experience. It’s ideal for vegans, who can get their candy fix with a monthly subscription of a 1kg pouch of Vegan Pick & Mix sweets from the UK-based supplier from £8.99 a month. You’ll be spoilt for choice with a box thrown together from a stock of more than 70 varieties of vegan candy, which is delivered in 100% plastic-free compostable packaging. The zero-tolerance policy on plastics means that lollipops and sweets pre-wrapped in plastic are not included in the pouches. The candies are also palm oil-free and stay fresh for up to 10 months.

Candy subscription boxes: The verdict

Candy subscriptions from sweet makers in the UK are generally quite cheap (under £10), and you don’t have to spend much more on boxes of candies from other countries. With the exception of the Super Loot subscription, most of the English candy boxes featured here are filled with selections of sweets that you can find in most high street shops. There might be the occasional treat that you’ve never tried but it’s not much different to popping down to the local newsagents. It’s just handy having someone else do the choosing and shopping for you. Trying American candies can be fun because you’ll get to try a few new flavours, and getting a subscription of American candy from Auntie Ammie’s Candy won’t cost you the earth. If you always want to be surprised and try candy from around the world, we highly recommend Snack Surprise subscription.
