Project Candy Box Review January 2018

Project Candy Box delivers to you a box of candy every month. Each box contains a variety of chocolate and candy that is sure to make your mouth water. They kindly sent us this box for review.

Who doesn’t love candy?!  My husband and I are big campers and we just can’t help ourselves when it comes to camping and candy.  I know it’s not camping season, but it’s honestly all I can think about right now!  Must get outside soon…… Whether you’re stocking your camping stash, padding out that boring lunch to take to work, or keeping that glove box nice and stocked for a road trip, commute or after school sugar rush, Project Candy Box has got you covered!  Seriously though, this box is like going to your own personal tuck shop every month!

Happy New Year to all the Canadian sweeties out there. We wish you a prosperous and healthy new year from our family to yours.

Our little business has grown in 2017 and that’s due to the incredible support of our Canadian customers. We’re excited to move forward in 2018 providing more exclusive candies from the far reaches of world. Since our business has grown, so has our plan to create partnerships with more brands. We will continue to honor our promise to bring the greatest brands and products to Canada through our monthly candy service.

We will start off our 2018 with a great selection of international candies, newly released products as well as sweet, European chocolate. You will find these in your January box. Enjoy!

International candy?  Wow!  I can already tell this box is going to be my favourite so far from Project Candy Box!  I like what I see already, chocolate and Nerds… This month is already a win!

Zozole – Poland

Poland is normally known for their decadent chocolate but this month we’ve included a little curveball with these sweet hard candies. The wildly crazy cartoon on the package says it all. He’s gotten his fill of Zozole and the surprise fizz within. Each individually wrapped candy is either cherry, apple or strawberry and they all have one thing in common, a blast of fizz erupts when you reach the center.

This is so rad!  I love receiving items that are popular in other countries and cultures.  Do you remember those sour blasters as a kid that would fizz?  I feel like these will be similar to those…… and if they are I might have to take a trip to Poland to load up.

Welch’s Soft Licorice – Strawberry

Welch’s has always been the staple for flavor. The smells, the taste and the texture of their awesome products like juices, jams and fruit snacks have always been top notch. In your January box you’ll find a bag full of juicy Welch’s licorice that is “bursting with fruit flavor”. You’ll smell these puppies when you open your box this month. Chomp into these giant pieces and enjoy the burst of flavor within.

No way, when did Welch’s start making candy?  Clearly I’m behind on this trend.  Liquorice happens to be one of my all time favourite candies!

Sour Candy Dough

This fun and sweet group of edible playdough has just been released across North America. The perfect desert that you can play with while you eat. Sour Candy Dough is soft and mildly sour with just enough kick to satisfy your palate. Some great flavors including lemon, blue raspberry, green apple and strawberry are waiting to be rolled up, squished and shaped into whatever your mind can come up with. Mix and match. Then when you’re done… eat it all up!

Edible play dough?!  This box is kicking it out of the park!  I’m not sure if I’m going to have more fun crafting out dinosaurs or eating them in my own version of revenge of Jurassic Park!

Rademaker Hopjes Koffie Candy – Holland

I hope you take your coffee with sugar! Straight from Holland in the Netherlands, these coffee hard candies are rich and sweet with real coffee flavor. This large sack of individually wrapped coffee candy is yours to enjoy. Even for the tea lover, the flavor is undeniable and satisfying to the sugar lover. Put these in a candy jar to impress your visitors. Or just pop one in the morning before work!

Unreal!  I loved having coffee candies when I was in Holland!  One of the restaurants we frequented would bring a candy tin to the table after your meal and you could select something, or many things, out of it.  I would take all the coffee candies every time….. no joke!

Milka Daim – Germany

The final product found in the January box is Milka Daim. A massive 100% alpine milk chocolate bar from Germany stuffed with chunks of Daim toffee bits. This melt in your mouth chocolate bar will be a tough item to share with your friends and family but if you’re generous enough, perhaps you can spare a piece or two.

Bring on the chocolate!  And German chocolate?!  Even better.  I can have a minor panic attack if my chocolate stash runs out.

Fini Shock Tongues – Spain

One of our favorite new brands out of Spain is Fini. From their branding and colors, to their diverse products and flavors. This month, we’re highlighiting Shock Tongues, one of Fini’s top sellers. Included in each pouch are 6 long sour belts drenched in even more sour crystals. Start with your choice of watermelon, green apple, grape, cherry, lemon and blue raspberry and then slowly make your way through the rest.

Love sour candies!  I actually prefer sour and bitter over sweet most of the time, so this one is going to be a big win for me!

Lucas Skwinkles – Mexico

Mexican candies and chocolates are made differently and often include spicy flavors. The funky named Skwinkles is no different. These chewy licorice strips are filled with spicy tamarind flavor and dusted with even more spices. These Skwinkles are pineapple flavored. On top of the spicy tamarind is a hit of pineapple in every bite.

This box just keeps getting better and better!  I feel like I’m going on mini trips reviewing this!

Nerd – Double Dipped – Cherry Lemonade and Watermelon Apple

Nothing is better than Nerds, they are the classic North American treat that you can eat one at a time or you can shovel into your mouth. These particular Nerds are just as advertised, double dipped. Enjoy lemonade with sweet cherry underneath on one side and watermelon with apple underneath on the other side. Open one side and save the other for later or just dive in all at once.

They are the classic North American treat!  I remember consuming way more than my share of Nerds as a kid.  I love that they still have the old school box with two flavours.  What a blast from the past!

Bubu Lubu – Mexico

Our final Mexican treat is Bubu Lubu, a chocolate covered marshmallow with strawberry filling. This snack has the perfect balance of rich chocolate, soft marshmallow and topped off with rich strawberry flavoring. There’s something for everyone in this rich little package.

Mmmmm… You had me at rich chocolate!

Cadbury Curlywurly – UK

A staple inside of Project Candy Box, our subscribers love to get this strong hit of UK caramel and milk chocolate. For years, England has worshipped the Curlywurly bar just like Canadians enjoy their Coffee Crisp. A simple braid of milk chocolate and caramel will satisfy all of your cravings.

Wow!  So awesome!  I love these candies!  I’ve been to the UK a couple times and their candy selection is second to none!

Project Candy Box January 2018 – Final Thoughts

I’m so impressed with this month’s box I don’t even know where to start!  I absolutely loved the travel theme, as trying new things from other cultures can be a bit of an obsession of mine.  I love that this box arrived in January, as it’s all the perfect camping candy and it’s chasing away my winter blues dreaming of the up and coming out-door camping season!  I’m not sure if these treats will make it all the way to May long weekend, but I’m tempted to save it and be surprised all over again when we pack up the tent and sleeping bags.  What a fun box!  The curation this month was out of the park and I was super excited about every single item!  What more could you ask for?
