The first thing I would do is check places like Sam’s, Costco, WalMart etc. Often they sell candy in large plastic containers. I have seen some that look like cookie jars.

Here’s a site that sells plastic candy containers:

also check out Ikea- they always have lots of plastic items

Last but not least, never forget the dollar store.

You’re using bottles with the tops cut off? Have any pictures of something like it? I’ve never seen anything like that before.

These are pretty reasonably priced plastic containers for a buffett.


The one thing to think about is that some candies will not work the best in a plastic container. I tried a plastic one with sour patch kids and the little sour crystals clung to the sides and it didn’t look so good.

@Ronneykay: The dollar tree has some cute plastic bowls that are decorative and perfect for this! They have plastic vases too !
