Exclusive gifts

Be surprised and delighted by unexpected gifts in your mailbox. Three times a year, we will provide special items never to be sold in the store — our way of thanking you for your loyalty. Your first item (a Jasmine keychain charm) will be provided with your welcome letter.

The Bittersweet Club International card

Some have said a glimpse of its lustrous shine grants the cardholder access to the upper echelons of high society, sways business associates, and waives speeding fines. After signing up, you will be issued the Bittersweet Club International Card, your key to the private members’ section and a symbol of your personal prestige.

Ad-free

Club members are able to use their credentials to disable ads site-wide, providing a cleaner website and comic archive experience. You will also notice improvements to navigation features obscured by ads, unavailable without your membership credentials.

Bespoke artwork

As a current Bittersweet Club International member, you may enter all regular drawing lotteries during each Bittersweet Candy Bowl Patreon campaign stream and receive a chance at your own personalized drawing request. See some examples of what is possible:

Tess, Paulo and Lucy taking a selfie.

Preferential treatment

Bittersweet Club International bestows prestige on its select ranks. After signing up, you may reserve a name to use in comments on Candybooru. This reserved name will be designated as a valued supporter of the comic with a gold BCI symbol.

Patronage of the arts

Club membership does not come without its rewards, but one shouldn’t forget its core purpose: signing up for a membership directly supports Bittersweet Candy Bowl’s publication.

With a hectic update schedule and multiple offshoots, BCB is a full-time job for Veronica and Oliver. By making a generous contribution, Club members will receive more than the benefits listed above — they will ensure the continued publication of the series for everyone to enjoy.

Yes, I’d like to join Bittersweet Club International! I’m eager to receive instant access to over 360 pages of member-only comics, ad-free browsing, special recognition on the site and 3 member-exclusive gifts for a one-time payment of $45. I understand that worldwide shipping is free.

Sign me up for an annual membership and . . .

  • I will look forward to two further gifts within my membership year.
  • I would prefer an electronic subscription with all the digital benefits but no welcome letter or gifts.

Renewing your membership?

Hey, thanks! To renew, simply purchase a new annual subscription with the links above. We will automatically add another year to your subscription.
