Candy Club

Now, candy lovers all over the country will be able to get their fix on a monthly basis.

Candy Club, a premium, monthly subscription service designed especially for candy lovers, is launching nationwide.  

Curated by the company’s in-house, sweet-toothed aficionados, Candy Club shipments offer members a diverse selection of delicious favorites and hard-to-find classic candies conveniently delivered to their doorsteps.

“There are a lot of subscription box delivery services available to consumers — but none that, quite literally, bring the candy store to your door,” says founder Keith Cohn, a veteran executive in the CPG and digital marketingfields who also serves as the company’s ceo.

The confectionery industry does more than $30 billion in sales a year, making it a great market for the monthly subscription box, he explains.

“With Candy Club, we marry quality and convenience in a way that will ultimately bring magic and joy to peoples’ doorsteps — and the better the candy, the bigger the smiles,” Cohn says.

The concept is simple. First, consumers visit Candy Club’s website and choose a one-, three-, six-, or 12-month plan option. And its priced competitively at $29.99/mo, $24.99/mo, $22.99/mo, and $19.99/mo, respectively (not including shipping).

Then, they receive a box of premium, hand-picked candy delivered to their home or business every month. Last — and most important — Cohn says, they simply enjoy.

Selections vary each month, offering members an assortment of three different types of candy stored in novelty Candy Club containers. For example, one month’s box may surprise recipients with Haribo Gummi Techno Bears, Sour Power Wild Cherry Belts, Gimbal’s Sour Gourmet Jelly Beans and, as an added bonus, Butterfields Peach Buds – all on a bed of Sweet’s Salt Water Taffy.

Whether consumers are craving a short-term fix or long-term satisfaction, Candy Club offers the perfect solution for their insatiable sweet tooth.

Consumers looking for the perfect back-to-school gift or are tired of the usual flower- and-chocolate combination now have an alternative. Of course, those simply wanting a convenient candy supply chain also have a new option.
