When you think of candy bowls, visions of visiting older relatives may pop up as they certainly had a bowl of wrapped candy lying around, waiting to be sampled. While filling your own ornamental bowl to the brim with candy won’t transport you back to those happier times, it’s worth keeping one around for the younger generation.
Below we have found a few great and unique looking candy bowls that are either made to or can function as a place to put your favorite candy.
Our first choice is a contemporary glass bowl shaped like an unzipped disposable plastic bag, including the realistically “crinkled” edges and sides. This fun and cool piece will look nice anywhere and can be filled or left empty while still looking unique. We also picked the classic Penny Candy Jars that just look great in any kitchen, bar area or living room and ensure everything is accessible, neat and secure.
Lastly is the stainless-steel bowl which can be used for candy, nuts or even an ice cream dish. This elegantly hammered bowl complements any home or office setting and also works as a standalone piece due to its sculptural shape.
