My teenage daughter works two jobs, mainly to pay for her car. She also buys extras and comes home with snacks for herself. I'm okay with her hoarding the snacks in her room. After all, if she doesn't, it's guaranteed that the other five kids will forage through it. However, I don't want the packages left open for the food to get stale or attract bugs. The Candy and Snack Dispenser from Plow & Hearth is a perfect solution.
The globe part of the Candy and Snack Dispenser unscrews so it can be filled with a favorite snack. Touching the finger dispenser releases the treats in a measured portion. So far Skittles, Reese's Pieces, and M&Ms have been filled to capacity with the Candy and Snack Dispenser. Shelby's even been sharing with her siblings because they can't just grab as much as they want. The Candy and Snack Dispenser is somewhat smaller than I expected it would be. It's more appropriate for an individual to set on their desk or dresser. I've warned Shelby that I will be borrowing the dispenser during holiday parties to fill with treats for guests. It will make a nice focus around a centerpiece and other snacks.
Optional accessories that can be purchased for the Candy and Snack Dispenser are finials. I don't know the proper definition for finials, but know they are toppers that give decoration to the dispenser. To give an added touch, you can purchase sports, woodland, or seasonal finials. Shelby has the woodland finials for her dispenser that consist of a cardinal, a squirrel, and bears. They customize the look of the dispenser and I've seen all three atop Shelby's.
You ever find a site that has so many things you like that you could spend forever browsing through it, finding things to buy? Plow & Hearth has that effect on me. They offer products for the home, yard, garden, and hearth. There are a number of retail stores, but for those who can't shop at any of them, Plow & Hearth has an online site that will take you in, leaving you wanting and wishing for most everything.
One person will win a Candy and Snack Dispenser with Woodland Finials.
