Comments about Product: This snack dispenser is perfect since it dispenses a handful of nuts or candies in a sanitary way. I have had an older version of this item and it had a thin glass globe that broke easily. (I replaced it twice!) The globe is made of a sturdy plastic now and will last much longer. The fact that the finial can be changed with the seasons is another plus. I already have a squirrel finial and I may purchase one for the holidays.
Globe doesn't "attach" to base
Comments about Product: I love this - it's cute, but the globe only sits atop the storage base and does not screw on. We have knocked it over and spilled peanuts everywhere; and this weekend the grandchildren knocked it off and broke it. Need replacement globe, if there are any, but not sure it's worth it, as it's likely to just keep happening.
Poor Quality Junk
Comments about Product: Sorry to say, this product's quality is zilch, although the store was good enough to ship me another free of charge. The chief complaint is its glass is light bulb-thin. A gentle shake was all it took in trying to free up the jammed dispenser to send a candy-coated almond through the glass globe, leaving a hole. Its replacement came from the box leaving the glued metal [or plastic] top free [apparently not a great hot-glue job, though I'll try gluing it back on myself] I'd say don't buy this for your kids, it is dangerous.

Comments about Product: EVERYONE THAT COMES UP TO MY DESK AT WORK LOVES TO HELP THEMSELVES TO THE TREATS I HAVE IN THERE. MOST POPULAR ARE PEANUT BUTTER M&M'S.
Comments about Product: I really like the snack globe for M&Ms
Wonderful snack dispenser!
Comments about Product: The dispenser sits on the front desk at my work and I get many, many compliments about how cute it is and how nice it looks there! It works great, is easy to refill and gives you just enough of a handful with each press of the handle. I have the Seasonal and Sports finials as well and that is always fun to change them out for different occasions! Wish there was a pumpkin for fall!
Family enjoys this for nuts
Comments about Product: Holds a lot of nuts and dispenses easily
Very Nice, but smaller than I'd hoped.
Comments about Product: Smaller than I'd like it to be, but very nice looking item. Too bad they don't offer the Woodland Finials any longer.
Great gift idea
Comments about Product: Bought it for the "man that has everything". He loves it. I filled it with healthy mixed nuts and we set it in the bar.. Healthy snack always available and fresh!!
By Robin bird
Comments about Product: Looks pretty on the countertop. We have the large Virginia peanuts and it dispenses a good amount, maybe 10 at a time, so the opening is not too small for that product in my opinion. I can see using it for other small candy at different seasons, but plan on using it all year round. Good product, Plow and Hearth!
By Sarah the Shopper
Great for Snacks
Comments about Product: I bought one of these several years ago and fill it with raw almonds, kept on counter for anytime snacking. Bought this one for my sister for Xmas, since she enjoys mine so much.
After much use my husband had to repair the spring. But it still works!
Comments about Product: We have used this item pretty consistently with peanuts since purchasing and I have cleaned between each package of peanuts and dried the dispenser thoroughly between uses. However, I am assuming the salt from the peanuts has begun to corrode the area where the peanuts come out do the container. I think this item would best be used with coated candies. I love the idea but am disappointed in how long it is going to last.
Nice size, Good Quality
Comments about Product: Purchased to go with the snack dispenser. Happy with the finial.
Wish the base were metal not plastic
Comments about Product: I purchased this to give to a friend that needed some cheering up. He is a football fan and I thought he would enjoy it.
Comments about Product: Very pretty dispenser, perfect size for candy or nuts. Easy to use and clean. Appears to be well made.
Looks like a novelty gift
Comments about Product: Can't give an accurate review as these were bought as holiday gifts in a few months, just good price and no shipping charges.
Comments about Product: This stays out on my counter with our favorite snack of almonds. We can get a handful whenever we want. Our family & friends love it too. Have used it with candy and other nuts too. They make a great gift for family &friends too!
"Given several as gifts...loved them!"
Comments about Product: I originally bought this item as a gift for some members of the family who are huge football fans (football finial purchased also). I received such rave reviews that I decided to purchase several more. The item works nicely with all sorts of snacks like choc. or yogurt covered raisins, trail mix, cinnamon heart candy, M & M's, etc. I have since given several more as gifts and everyone I give them to just loves them. I think the quality is fitting for the price...you must handle the globe carefully though...it could break easily if dropped or hit against something. These make fun gifts for adults but I am not sure they are sturdy enough for a child and they could break if not handled gently! I am very pleased with my purchase of this item.
Awesome Snack Dispenser!
Comments about Product: What I really like about this snack dispenser is that you can put very healthy options inside and that it dispenses just the right portion amount. Additionally, it makes an awesome gift (just remember to fill it before giving it)!
Comments about Product: Great size for a table top. Very attractive.
By Nutty Joyce
Very Pleased w/Product
Comments about Product: I use this product for nuts, candy, etc. It is good quality and attractive setting on my kitchen counter. Very pleased.
By zoner 210
Great! Just what we were looking for.
Comments about Product: Bought this item for my husband who loves to snack on peanuts while watching a movie. It is easy to use. It dispenses peanuts easily, which was a concern because peanuts are pretty large. It sits in the living room area and now all family members have easy access to the snack. He loves it! I just wish the dispenser was bigger.
Comments about Product: Christmas gift

ENJOYING THE NUT DISPENSERS
Comments about Product: WE ARE ENJOYING OUR NUT DISPENSERS, THEY ARE DECORATIVE AND KEEP A HEALTHY SNACK CLOSE BY.
Off the Wish List...finally!
Comments about Product: I had been looking for the candy dispenser for over a year. It was a gift and now stands right out where all can see it while the former one was always slightly hidden. We'll have to do a better job at keeping this one filled.
Great snack jar
Comments about Product: I keep my snack dispenser out on the counter with almonds or seasonal candies for daily use.
I use the seasonal finials to change the look.
I've given these as Christmas gifts and they are a big hit.
candy and snack dispenser
Comments about Product: I use the candy and snack dispenser for healthy unsalted whole almonds
Comments about Product: With the added finials and ease of filling allows it to be used all year.
Comments about Product: It sits on our bar and and our guests think it's alot of fun. Like that people don't have to put their hands into the peanuts to get the peanuts. The dispenser is somewhat difficult to fill - would be nice to have a funnel shipped with the dispenser.
Cute but not great quality
Comments about Product: Love the look of the dispenser, it is just not very high quality. Some of the unit is painted plastic and the glass on the globe is thin. But, it is cute and is functional.
Great idea, but needs work on quality
Comments about Product: I loved the idea of this candy dispenser! I like the size of it. It looks like it wouldn't hold much but it actually holds a very good amount. You have to be careful with it though, because it is lightweight and some of it is actually plastic, not metal. The glass globe is very thin. The first one I ordered had several bubbles in it so I got another which was better. Overall, I like the way it looks and am happy I bought it, I just need to be careful with it.
cute as a button
Comments about Product: I purchased it to use a party, but am using it, now on my kitchen counter as an everyday item. Itis very durable, attractive and fun! I am completely happy with it.
By D the digger
Comments about Product: Cute item but the plastic dispenser broke off.
Looked better in the picture
Comments about Product: Bought this for a gift and was disappointed in how it looked in person. The parts that looked like metal were plastic.
By Baja Bunny
Cute Adult Dispenser
Comments about Product: We bought this item as a gift to the couple that has everything and likes the unusual. The design is attractive, the base is heavy and made well. The drawback is that when I shipped the item, the glass globe broke. The glass is very, very, very thin. I am hoping I can find a replacement globe since I ended up re-ordering for our friends and have the broken item at my house. I would not recommend this item to be used by children because of how delicate the glass is. The globe holds a nice amount of candy or nuts. The opening is small so gourmet nuts don't work. Peanuts and M&M's are the best items to fill the globe with.
Perfect Dog Training Treat dispenser!!!
Comments about Product: I bought this for my husband for Christmas thinking he would put candy in it but then I decided it was the perfect give from the Newfs. We put oyster crackers in it and use them for training treats. It looks great out all the time on the dining room tablel. Dispenses a handfull of crackers at a time. We all love it!!!
By Have none
I would not buy this product
Comments about Product: After a short time of use the handle broke off rendering it useless. In addtion the storage globe does not stay secure to the base.
Beautiful way to serve snacks
Comments about Product: Mine sits on living room coffee table for easy access to small treats.
Candy and Snack Dispenser
Comments about Product: Have it sitting on the kitchen bar, the kids love to retrieve the pitachio nuts I have in it. Gives them just enough at one time
By Aussie Mom
Comments about Product: I have given this product as a gift to my husband and to my father in law. They use them to dispense nuts, and the mechanism works perfectly every time. Instead of having an uncovered bowl of pistachios on the kitchen counter, we have an attractive container. It is large enough so that it doesn't have to refilled all the time. My father in law liked his so well, that he ordered another for a friend.
By gladys the shopper
attractive candy & nut depencer
Comments about Product: everyday use,attractive,love the tops to have for each whim of change and price is reasonable. Great for gifts,
By Anne of MD
Good but not great
Comments about Product: I got this as a gift and it was well received. It obviously looks better with something in it, such as nuts or m&ms. It's nice to have in an everyday place where people have easy access to it. Nicer than a bowl of goodies as it helps portion control the amount of food people eat (in a bowl its too easy to keep just putting your hand in). Only complaint is that it is hard to fill. It would make sense if the metal on top unscrewed so that it could be filled from there, however, you have to unscrew the glass bowl from the bottom based. Also, it's not made of great materials. The glass is cheap and flawed, something that you probably won't notice if its filled. Metal is cheap as well. If you just plan to use it as an everyday item, it works.
Perfect Valentine Gift
Comments about Product: I filled this dispencer with Almonds and sent it to my Husband along with a long stem Red Rose for Valentine's Day gift.
Comments about Product: Large pieces (some nuts) will not fit through the opening. The dispenser is inconvenient and it is easy to overfill your hand. Don't think young children could use this.
This broke quickly!
Comments about Product: This broke on Christmas Day (which is when my kids gave it to their grandfather).
By Y in georgia
Makes a good gift for the hard to buy
Comments about Product: Overall a nice conversation piece; however, I thought it would be bigger.
This product is great!
Comments about Product: We love this products and we use it for almonds and it dispense a handful every time without them getting caught. Wonderful product and I also purchased the football topper wonderful!
Love it. Perfect for peanut M&M's.
Comments about Product: I had searched for some time to find just what I wanted to place beside my husband's easy chair. This one is perfect.
It's great, love it!!!!!!
Comments about Product: At first glance the dispenser seems small, but when you fill it up you find that it holds quite alot. I keep it on my countertop in the kitchen. I change the candy to match the holiday or special occasion. The grandkids just love it. It's the first thing they go to when they come to visit. It's fun to hear them giggle with delight when they are using it. Love it!!!!!!

Fun Candy/Nut Dispenser for adults
Comments about Product: This is a great unusual gift for the person who has everything. The metal base is heavy and well made with an opening that will accomodate candy or nuts up to the size of peanut M&M's easily. Gourmet nuts might clog the spout. The GLASS globe is a very delicate, thin glass. The overall size was smaller and shorter than I anticipated for a candy dispenser, but the overall piece is attractive. Adding colored candy makes it attractive to use on the corner of a bar or table. I would not recommend for use iwth small children because of the thin glass globe.
A perfect gift for the whole family
Comments about Product: We love our Snack Dispencer. We have ordered three to give as gifts.THose who received them have let us know how much they have enjoyed them.
Not worth the money...
Comments about Product: I ordered this as a housewarming gift...however I returned it. The first one came broken and the second one too late. Upon looking over the second one I received, I discovered it is very cheaply made. The magazine said "silver plated", however it was actually silver paint over a plastic base. I was hoping it would have been heavier...like a gumball machine. And the lever to dispense the snack was flimsy. I don't think it would have taken too many times dispensing before the lever would have snapped. This is not worth the money.

Snazzy Candy Dispenser
Comments about Product: Snazzy, high-end piece that fits perfectly into any decor. Bought for a physician's office and it constantly gets compliments for its uniqueness and stand-out chrome look.
Comments about Product: I love this so much that I have one and have given it many times for gifts. Great size. Easy to display and store. Fun way to celebrate occasions throughout the year.
By handful a day
Where to get a replacement globe?
Comments about Product: A handful (or more) of almonds and cashews a day. The dispenser keeps little hands out of the container.
But the globe broke and I need a replacement.
By Virginia Moose
Fun and Unique, but fragile
Comments about Product: I bought this for my office and my co-workers loved it for all the treats it afforded them. I even gave it as a gift to a co-worker for her office area (it eliminated hands in the peanuts she puts out for visitors). The one and only complaint that I have is that it is extremely fragile. I have had 2 broken so far and want to buy another one, but it has gotten too costly. Wish you sold replacement globes! That's why only 2 stars.
Classy way to serve snacks
Comments about Product: I gave this to my dad for Father's Day because he likes to have snacks and nuts on his counter for visitors (and grandkids). It was smaller than expected but ended up fitting on his counter probably better than a larger piece. The Vriginia nuts were a little big and would get caught in the dispenser sometimes so it's better to have smaller candies, snack mix or consistently sized nuts. He thought it was great and it will be better for serving his treats rather than everyone's hand in the basket and the mix out in the open. Fun, nice looking piece and the quality was good.
functional and attractive
Comments about Product: I have mine set up in my office, and always get positive comments about it; easy to refill, and works well mechanically.
Best one yet. Well worth the money.
Comments about Product: We have gone through several candy/nut dispensers over the years. We keep a supply of salted peanuts in the dispenser for snacks and for when any of our 12 grandchildren are over. This is the best built one that we have come across. It is solid, the dispenser mechanism is solid and the appearance fits well in our family room.
My boss LOVED it!
Comments about Product: It looks really good on a credenza. Very nice looking in silver. Holds quite a lot of gumballs.
functional and attractive
Comments about Product: I use a variety of goodies to fill the snack dispenser and it makes everything look good. The problem I have with it is that after a few times of refilling it,it no longer twists into place securely.It continuously turns past the lock-in point.The dispenser is still useable,but with a little caution.
Sent as gift but just recently saw it.
Comments about Product: I sent this as a gift to my sister and brother-in-law. I purchased the golf ball topper for it as they are avid golfers. I did not see it until recently and it looks really great. My brother-in-law must like it as he partook of the snacks almost every night I was there for a visit. (I liked it too!!)
By Julie the Fun Shopper
My daughter loved this product!
Comments about Product: My daughter keeps it in her room and her friends think that the dispensor is really fun! They fill it with a lot of fun stuff!
By mrs dun
nice design, not good quality
Comments about Product: sports theme was good, size could have been a little bigger, and quality was lacking
Great Nut Dispenser
Comments about Product: Product arrived on time. Very pleased with the nut dispenser. Much better than having "nut cans" sitting around the room.
No one can walk by it!
Comments about Product: We should buy stock in M&M's! There isn't a day that it doesn't get used
Love it. Candy and nuts come out so easy
Comments about Product: I have it at the office. People that come in love it also. Easy to fill and looks great.
By April at the office
Comments about Product: The base is short so it is hard to get your hand under the dispenser so you end up having some spillage. I would still buy it.
By Football Fan
Comments about Product: Very fun and handy to have for treats. Looked really nice - good quality mechanism. However, the glass broke very easily while refilling it. I was really bummed.
By As be
Comments about Product: This was a gift that was greatly appreciated and fun for the whole family!

Comments about Product: Fun addition to the candy dispenser; allows it to fit in with seasonal decorations.
By I'll try you again Lynn
Comments about Product: I bought 2 for Christmas gifts. They were surprisingly small. The glass globe didn't screw on securely. I would have loved them if the quality would have been better.
My co-workers love it.

It's TOO easy to dispense snacks! Yumm!
Comments about Product: Great gift for all ages! I gave one to an adult for Christmas and she used at a party the next night. It was a great conversation piece. People gathereed right by it to grab a snack.
My mother-in-law loved it!
Comments about Product: I purchased this for my mother-in-law. She has everything and very hard to buy for. But when I got the call that she received this, it was well worth it. She loved it! It's small but classy. She loved the toppers too. M&Ms, peanuts and spree candies are perfect to add color!
A MUST FOR EVERY GRANDPARENT!

For those who have "almost everything"
Comments about Product: Bought for friends who had almost everything for entertaining -- except a clever way to serve those salted peanuts. Now they've got it and I hear they use it every day. Keeps the dogs away, too.
Perfect gift for anniversary
Comments about Product: Very pleased with the product. Purchased the golfball top, as giftees are huge golfers. They were so pleased with the gift. Sadly, the glass had a crack so I re-ordered them a new one. We had the original dispenser filled with personalized M & M's for their anniversary, which added to the fun.

Great Coches Gift with the Sports Finial
Comments about Product: This was a Coaches gift purchase that were filled with candy in our team colors - they were well received!
Comments about Product: I was disappointed to see how small the globe was. It was too small to hold very much, so I returned it.
Fun and Unique Item
Comments about Product: fun gift, looks great and dispenses just the right amount of candy or nuts
Comments about Product: This is a nice well-made item. It's metal base is heavy and has a nice sheen. The glass globe is easy to fill. This item is nice enough to give as a gift or sit on a kitchen counter.
By Billy Boy
Best snack dispencer ever
Comments about Product: Love the product we keep it filled with M&M's and it works every time none of the candy gets stuck.
Real Old time charm!!
Comments about Product: I love the look of our dispenser (which, by the way, I purchased the extra finials and gave to my husband as a Valentine's Day gift...which he loved!!)on our bar. Have gotten a lot of comments about it, too. I think the only thing I'm always cautious about is filling the dispenser. If the globe is not attached properly, it will come off too easily, so I'm always careful. Also, I would LOVE to see more finials (maybe to purchase separately)like perhaps a four leaf clover for St. Patrick's Day, or a birthday cake with candles??
Comments about Product: The finials are very pretty and substantial in weight(not plastic at all). However, I do wish the finials could be purchased individually, as well as more styles to offer, such as a four leaf clover (we have an Irish Pub themed bar)or a birthday cake? The finials really add to the charm of the dispenser.
Comments about Product: I like the dispenser alot, although the glass stays cloudy/dirty looking when I have the nuts in it and it's not full. All in all I like it however
Fun little gift item - quality made!
Comments about Product: For someone who has all the necessities
A very unique item
Comments about Product: My guests love it as much a I do.
I have given item as a gift and keep an extra available to give to those that admire it.
Love this so much I bought three of them
Comments about Product: Fun for young and old.
Children should use with adult help. . . some adults with children's help!
Placement of dispenser is crucial for dispenser to work properly.
Comments about Product: It was very nice. I gave 3 of them as gifts and all 3 enjoyed the item.
Loved it while it lasted !
Comments about Product: I purchased this for my elderly Dad at Christmas. He loved it & so did the rest of the family. I was very careful to set it up but within a few months it had craked on the bottom where it screwed on to the base. What a shame.
It is very poorly contructed.
By Mary the online shopper
Comments about Product: My brother is hard to buy for so when I found this candy/nut dispenser, I knew it would be perfect for him. Not only is it the perfect size for table top, it is functional as well. Now he can enjoy his nuts daily.
Great Gift for Kids
Comments about Product: I filled this with M&M's for my granddaughter's dorm room. It is a huge hit with her and her suite mates. Good quality.
Kids Love It
Comments about Product: I work at a school. The Dispenser sits on my desk. The students are delighted and have fun using it. I might get another.
nice object to look at

Creatively fun all year long!
Comments about Product: Our dispenser sits on the counter all year long. Filled with Valentine's hearts, shamrock colored m&m's, pastel Easter candy corn, red,white,and blue gum balls, Halloween candy corn, red and green m&m's all kinds of nuts and anything else we can think of. At our house, if it's your birthday - the dispenser is filled with your favorite treat for the entire week. Guests love the fun of raiding the dispenser for a yummy tidbit. It's always a hit at our parties! One time we even put uncooked macaroni letters inside and each guest at a bridal shower filled a dixie cup with letters - whoever spelled the most creative wedding-related word won a prize! We have had ours for many years and have given many as gifts. Purchase one and see for yourself! Fun and happy guests are guaranteed!
What a delightful little gift!
Comments about Product: I gave this as a gift to friends who own a cabin. With the woodland finials on top it was really too cute. I filled it with red and green m and m's for Christmas.
By Cam's Gramma
Comments about Product: For grandkids' candy treats.
Nice gift for mom
Comments about Product: I purchased this as a Christmas present for my mother. It is attractive and the finials are very festive. I purchased additional finials so she could use as a regular decoration. The only thing that would improve it was a thicker glass.
Comments about Product: Very poor quality. Not up to Plow and Hearth standards. Ashamed to give as a gift--which was the purpose of the order. Returned item.
By TEAM MOM
CUTE BUT ON THE CHEAP SIDE
Comments about Product: I USED THESE AS COACHES GIFTS FOR BASKETBALL. THEY ALL LOVED THEM. WHEN I UNPACKED THEM FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE TOPS CAME UNGLUED. I DIDN'T HAVE TIME TO GET NEW ONES SO I JUST GLUED THEM BACK ON MYSELF. HOPEFULLY THEY'LL STAY GLUED.
Liked the first, bought another
Comments about Product: Bought the first one several years ago for Granny and she uses it for peanuts. Bought the second this past Christmas for my Father and he puts spice drops in it. The different finials that can be purchased are hard to choose from. They are all cute
By Grim Reaper
Comments about Product: I have this on my conference table at work. People drop by just for a handful of nuts (Virginia peanuts). I would have liked the globe larger as I seem to fill it often. Best way to serve nuts or M&Ms as people don't handle them as they would in a bowl.
