Why Plastic Sweet Jars are a better alternative to Glass Sweet Jars

When you picture sweet jars, you probably think of rows of them lined up filled with delicious treats in the old sweet shop on the corner from your childhood. However, nowadays, not only are plastic sweet jars perfect for storing all your favourite goodies and satisfying a sweet tooth, but they are also the perfect gift, storage solution and stylish addition to your home!

Sweet Jars are the perfect gift for any sweet-toothed pal or family member and is a unique way to show somebody your appreciation. However, if that person is anything like us, the sweets won’t stay in the jar for too long! That’s why sweet jars also make the perfect stylish storage solution to store everything from dry kitchen goods to all the odd bits and bobs that never seem to find a home. Our Glass Jars, as beautiful as they are, may not be the safest if you have small kiddies (or clumsy adults) running around so Plastic Sweet Jars are the perfect alternative. (They’re also cheaper too - meaning even more pennies to spend on sweets!)

As well as empty plastic sweet jars, we also have a range of themed jars that would make the perfect coffee table addition or a fun gift for any occasion. For example, our Girls Sweetie Jar, which is available in 3 different sizes, is the perfect gift to treat a special lady to and is filled to the brim with love-themed sweets, old classics and a whole host of pink treats! Tuck into a tangy Love Heart Dip, get your tongue tingling with Giant Fizzers or accessorize with a fashionable (and tasty) Candy Necklace. Yum! We also have a range of other themes, including everything from Football Jars to Love Themed Jars, all filled with scrumptious delights for everyone to enjoy.

Plastic Sweet Jars are also a fun way to add a sweet touch to your wedding. Spread the love amongst your guests and give them that sugar kick to keep them on the dance floor with sweet jars as table decorations. Not only will it provide the perfect after-dinner treat, but they also look beautiful and can be adapted to suit any colour scheme or theme. For example, if you have a pink theme going on, why not fill jars with old-school favourites such as Strawberry Bon Bons and Foam Shrimps?

Speaking of love-themed sweets and weddings - Plastic Sweet Jars are also perfect to give to your guests as sweet wedding favours. For example, our 380ml Love Jar is filled with all sorts of love-themed sweets including Milk Chocolate Hearts, Strawberry Refreshers and Fizzers. Complete with a ribbon around the bobble topped lid, this small jar is the perfect way to show your appreciation to your guests and spread the love!

Bon Bons are one of the most iconic retro sweets of all time and are loved by all ages. Having made a comeback in recent years, these old-time favourites are the perfect sweet treats for the whole family and look great displayed in a plastic sweet jar. One of our favourite flavours is Rhubarb and Custard Bon Bons. This fun twist on a classic favourite sure knows the way to our hearts! However, if this is not taking your fancy, there is also plenty of other flavours, including everything from apple to chocolate, to choose from.

Another great use of plastic sweet jars is as a gift. Why not fill one a jar with somebody’s favourite retro sweets and complete with their favourite coloured lid and some ribbon for a unique and personal gift that is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. Or if you are stuck for ideas or feeling spoiled for choice, why not take a look at our range of ready filled, themed Sweet Jars. With everything from Christmas Jars to Spooky Jars to choose from, there is sure to be a plastic sweet jar for every occasion, or simply take a look for some inspiration.

Along with Plastic Sweet Jars, we also stock a range of tongs, scoops and paper bags in various colours. Why not create your very own traditional sweet shop for a party, event or even a mini one at home to treat the kids (and adults!). Simply choose the jars you want - from small 250ml jars or larger 3-litre jars to cater for larger numbers and then get to the fun part…choosing the sweets! Creating your very own sweet jar is not only a fun and exciting twist to add to any party or wedding, but is also perfect for sticking to a theme or colour scheme. For example, Mini Love Hearts are the perfect sweets to celebrate the big wedding day with!
