YumYum Candy is a new Canadian subscription box that sends a monthly assortment of candies from around the world. There's flavours to satisfy each of your taste buds. Items will be unique, nostalgic, hard-to-find, or ridiculously yummy. The I-Joy box contains 7-10 full size items and the We-Joy box, meant for sharing, contains 12-15 full size items.

Yum Yum Candy subscriptions are unique in that they only recur for as long as you want them to. You can choose a 1 month, 3 month, 6 month, or 12 month subscription. Pay for the box monthly. It only auto-renews for the length of your term. If you wish to cancel earlier, just e-mail Yum Yum before the 25th of the month. Boxes ship via Canada Post between the 20th and 25th of each month.

This is a review for the We-Joy box.  

Instead of a product card, the product info is printed on a sticker this month. It's affixed to the inside of the box lid. I have to admit, I prefer the card. The print is so small, I had to lift the box right up to my face to read the info! 

First look!

Tunnock's Milk Chocolate Coated Caramel Wafers from UK
These scrumptious and crunchy wafers with caramel are a classic since the 1890's! 
G didn't like this one. The wafers were too soft and chewy with the added caramel. It lacked the wafer-like crunch. 

Necco Chocolate Flavored Wafers from USA
Nostalgic treats with a great simple chocolate flavour.
These were hard little, chalky disks. I didn't get the chocolate taste much. One of my co-workers mentioned cloves, which I picked up a little. 

Tootsie Charleston Chew in Strawberry from USA
An old time favourite from the 1920's. It's a delicious strawberry nougat candy wrapped in right chocolate flavour. 
The strawberry flavour was not popular among my co-workers. We all agreed the original is better.

Pop Rocks Bubble Gum from USA
Enjoy this cool candy that explodes in your mouth and then turns into bubble gum.
I shared this with a few friends and we had a great time popping and rocking. The sound and feeling is elevated when you pour them on your tongue then keep your  mouth open. The bubble gum part was a disappointment. The pieces were tiny and didn't come together well.

Hershey 5th Ave Chocolate Bar from USA
Crunchy peanut butter and creamy milk chocolate delight that has been a favourite for almost 75 years.
I wasn't a fan of this one. The peanut butter centre was kind of strange.

Cadbury Fudge Bar from UK
Heavenly soft fudge bar covered in yummy Cadbury milk chocolate. This is another classic that has been around since 1948.
G and I both loved this one. It was small and simple, and only costs 25 pence in the UK!

Broadway Roll Strawberry Rolls from USA
Thin strips of licorice candy all rolled up. Each package has 4 rolls that are over a foot long. 
These smells good, but they were super disappointing. They felt really greasy, and they tasted like nothing. G though they tasted soapy. We didn't finish the package.

Cow Tales Caramel Apple from USA
Mouthwatering snack made of chewy caramel, filled with apple flavoured tart and creamy centre. 
I like original Cow Tales but the caramel apple centre ones are kind of strange.

Cadbury Easter Bunny from UK
Fun and delicious Easter bonus. Happy Easter :)
This was a simple hollow chocolate bunny. Can't go wrong there.

Mike & Ike Buttered Popcorn from USA
These were first introduced in 2004 and now are back by popular demand.
I don't know why these are popular. Buttered popcorn jelly beans are the worst, and these are just as bad! Only one coworker liked them.  

Chupa Chups Whistle Pop from UK
Lollipop that works just like a whistle. Simple and fun.
I remember these from when I was a kid.

E. Fruitti Chili Spicy Gummi Bear from USA
Tiny treat with some spicy heat.
I LOVED this. I wish there was more than one. I've already looked at buying more online.

Nestle Sweet Tarts Soft & Chewy Ropes from USA
These candies are bendable fun that's chewy with fruity filling.
These red licorice ropes have a soft sweet tart centre. 

Takenokono Sato Baked Wheat Crackers with Chocolate from Japan
Add some sweetness to your day with these cute little biscuits coated with milk chocolate to create a combination of creamy and crunchy textures.
These little things are shaped like trees or pine cones. They were tasty!

The April box from Yum Yum Candy included 14 items. Most items are from the USA, with a few from the UK, and one from Japan. There seems to be a bit of a theme, with most of the items being old-time, nostalgic favourites. I also like that there's lots of chocolate this month! While I didn't enjoy everything included, it's still a fun box, and it's a great way to sample things you wouldn't normally buy.
