Scoff Box Review and Giveaway



My Sweet tooth has been very happy this week because my Scoff Box that I had been sent to review turned up. 

The boxes are a monthly subscription retro sweet box that is sent to you from the company scoff club. They send a different box filled with different tasting sweets each month. They are great for kids and adults as the sweets will be a blast from the past of what you used to eat. 

I do love my sweets and chocolate and I'm a big kid when it comes to them. My parents used to always give me 20p to spend after school and I would head to the shop and fill my bag with penny sweets. When I started to open the box I was very excited and wondered which sweets I would be getting. 
The sweets were nicely wrapped in a lovely bright yellow tissue paper with a sticker closing it up saying. Enjoy your scoff. 



I peeled the sticker off and opened it to reveal a rainbow of colourful sweets. They looked and smelt so delicious and within seconds I was having a good route through to see what there was. There was such a good selection. Watermelon Rockets, Tutti Fruiti Fizzy Cubes, Chocolate Honeycomb, Jelly Babies, Clotted Cream Toffee Bonbons, Eye Poppers Bubblegum and Reeses Pieces. I have to say that they did really well with choice of sweets to send as I love most of those sweets. Only ones I dislike are Reeses Pieces which is okay as my partner loves them, and I wasn't to keen on the sound of Clotted Cream Bonbons.



I opened up some of the bags and put some of the sweets into a bowl to try. First I was dying to try the Watermelon Rockets. They sounded the nicest, and they were! Sour but really sweet and they had a lovely flavour. Then I scoffed down lots of Jelly Babies, and then popped a Fizzy Cube into my mouth. Oh Wow the Fizzy Cubes are definetly what they describe on the packet, super sour and super fizzy.. just the way I like them. My Tastebuds were happy with them!
I gave the Bonbons a try but as expected I wasn't to keen, never been a big toffee fan but thats just my personal preference.


I was also super happy to see Honeycomb in there. Its one of my favourites and always reminds me of the craft fair that happened once a year at my local church. I would always go and always come away with some honeycomb. Delicious.

I think the scoff boxes are a brilliant idea although for me I don't actually scoff my sweets to fast and not all of it would be gone by a months end. Though I would be very happy to have a monthly supply of my favourites such as honeycomb. One thing I think that could be added if you had a subscription is something on the website where you can tick which things in the box you enjoyed or didn't. So if you didn't like bonbons you wouldn't get sent them again. 


You can subscribe to the Scoff Club for £12.99 a month or take up a 3 months subscription or 6 months subscription for £34.99 or £69.99.
