Auto-Dispense Candy - a Fun Office Gift

Updated on January 25, 2014

Halloween Candies Fall Right Into The Little Goblins' Hands

If I'm going to eat M&Ms or sour balls or Red Hots I want to make it fun and easy, so I want to use an automatic candy dispenser, and for Halloween guests the kids want it that way too.

It makes the little guys feel like big kids when they can get their own treats at your house.

These are the right devices for your friends' kids who come inside with their parents for some fun Halloween, Birthday, Christmas, or other Holiday fun.

Most parents want their kids to receive wrapped treats so this automatic dispenser is reserved for the very kids who already visit at my home or yours - those children and parents with whom we already exchange meals and snacks.

For everyone else check out the wrapped candies at the bottom of the page.

Here's a Happy Orb That's Generous, to Boot! - and the Fillings at a Bargain Price

For practicality in a family with rambunctious kids this is the perfect auto-candy delivery machine.

It's a Slick Motion-Activated Unit that's made of plastic, so worry not about breaking glass. Let's the kids crank their own helping of candies or nuts into their goodies bags without any adult help.

I really respect a product line when they provide easy access to Ingredients, for those with Allergic Concerns: be sure to check out the list of ingredients and preparation for the Signature Jelly Belly Beans.

Young Adult Knocked on Halloween

Mom was surprised and exclaimed in delight:

"What are you doing Trick-or-Treating?"

He was back home after serving time

in the Armed Forces in the 1950s

and wanted to see if it still worked!

Mom gave him a big treat

while welcoming him home


wishing him well!

Sorbitol & Malitol Sweetened Balls

Sugar Alcohols provide a stronger safeguard against sugar-caused tooth decay, so if this is your concern in selecting gum balls, these may hit the spot.

Sugar Free Gumballs 16oz

When you want to participate in holiday candy-giving you might want to make it sugar-free.

Bright colored flavored chewie spheres look gorgeous and fun, and satisfy the kids' chewing urge.

All ingredients are listed on the Amazon page so you can be sure of what you're giving children.


I Buy the Candy for the Kids & the Dispenser for Me - this shiny dispenser is not automatic, just beautiful

When I think of handing out candy or healthy treats like nuts for a holiday like Halloween I think of having some fun in the process.

The very idea of Halloween recalls my childhood fun in humble homemade or assembled clothing that qualified as costumes. So when I see a candy machine like the Godlinger Silver Top Candy Dispenser I think I've won the door prize!

It satisfies my desire for good design in my home and for reminiscence to the days when children could roam the dark October 31st streets unchaperoned, in search of sweet treats.

This little number rates 4 Stars from 60-some Reviews. Most everyone likes the classy look.

They enjoy having it on their desktop filled with M&Ms, although some complain that peanut M&Ms clog the opening.

      My kids love these. My father in law has a gumball dispenser and an M&M dispenser in his home office. When we visit, that is the first place my kids go!

      There really are some gorgeous gumball machines out there. I guess the vintage ones are now quite collectable.
