Scoff Club – Review

Scoff Club, the new kid on the subscription box block, launched around 4 weeks ago and offers a monthly subscription service sending out a box of retro and classic sweets to subscribers each month.

Dave actually proposed by hiding my engagement ring in pick n mix and we even themed our table plan around sweets so the idea of a regular deliver of retro sweets is really appealing to me – though perhaps a little badly timed with #OperationWeddingWeight being such a focus right now!

I was really excited when I opened my first Scoff Club box to discover, amongst other things, a Wham Bar!!  I flipping love Wham Bars!  We were so keen to try out all the things in the box that I’m afraid I failed to get a decent photo of the whole selection – sorry!  This is what I was greeted by as I opened the lid! Talk about “kid in a sweet shop”

The contents of my first Scoff Club box!

 

This month’s Scoff Club box contained:

*Drumstick lollies x 2  (As chomped by Ben and Finley)

Paper bag of flying saucers (Chlo dived head first into that bag!)

* Rainbow drops (Amy enjoyed those!)

* Fun gums (Erin took those)

* Fried eggs (would any retro sweet collection be complete without them?)

* Wham bar

* Refreshers bar

* Bag of cola cubes

* Bag of something else hard boiled which I haven’t actually tasted yet

* 2 x Vimto lollies

* 2 x other lollies

* Double dipper

Kola Kubes
Fried Eggs
“Other boiled sweets”
Spider Ben quickly laid claim to a Drumstick lolly!

 

What we love about it: 

* The little paper bags of sweets really do feel proper old school – they remind me of going to the shops as a kid and choosing from all the jars behind the counter!

* There isn’t masses of unnecessary packaging

* It’s all stuff I love and remember well from my own childhood so it’s a winner for nostalgia

* You can alter your preferences on the website to make sure you get more of what you like be it chewy, fizzy or hardboiled

* The box includes proper branded sweets not cheap, naff alternatives

What we’re not so keen on: 

* Having to share it!

* Being on a diet

*We were sent the Scoff Club box free of charge for the purposes of review however all thoughts and opinions remain our own*

      It's taken some effort I must admit.
