Candy adds a colourful touch to a home or office. Keep the confections fresh in a decorative dispenser that showcases your selections. If you are selling candy, the way it is displayed and dispensed can make a big difference. Clear containers allow you to see if you are running low, while different varieties of candy dispensers also protect people from picking up germs by only providing one fresh piece of candy at a time.

Bubblegum Style Dispenser

Bubblegum style dispensers can be used for candy other than gum. As long as the candy is the right size for the dispenser, it will work. These dispensers can be set up to require money in exchange for a piece of candy, or they can be designed so that they work on a lever system or dial release. Some bubblegum style dispensers take the candy on a spiral path to the spout where it is released. They come in various sizes from large floor models, to desktop versions and miniature keychain styles.

Gravity Bins

Clear bins often are used in stores to hold and dispense candy. They are filled from the top. As candy is needed, a slot is opened on the bottom, which allows gravity to push candy out into waiting bags or hands. These bulk candy dispensers are often large, holding three to five or more gallons of candy at a time.

Pocket Sized Candy Dispensers

Individual candy dispensers work on an a spring system. They often have a plastic moulded head of a character while the straight bottom part holds the rectangular pieces of candy. Once the top is lifted open, one piece of candy is pushed out from the shaft of the dispenser. These pocket-sized dispensers can only be used with a particular variety of candy.

Lidded Bin with Scoop

Glass or acrylic bins with lids require scoops to dispense the candy. These come in all sizes. On some models, there is a slot built into the bin to hold the scoop when not in use. These are good for candy shops or grocery stores that work on a self-serve mode, allowing customers to choose their candy without using their hands. Smaller containers on a kitchen counter or office desk can also include small scoops inside the lidded dispenser to mimic the look of a sweetshop, while protecting the candy from airborne germs.
