Candy Jar Review
I am a sucker for late-night, in-bed, payment-info-saved-on-my-phone, online impulse purchases. Seriously. So, I’m laying in bed one night, flipping through my Facebook feed and an ad for Candy Jar shows up. I had never heard of it.
What really got me to click was not their ad. I have been so pissed off lately that apparently you can’t find real nonpareils or Irish potatoes candy in Georgia. Pfft. I grew up in PA and you could buy them anywhere! So, imagine how stoked I was when I saw Candy Jar had milk chocolate nonpareils!
Back to my late night splurge: Candy Jar. This company sounded pretty amazing. Basically, you pick a ‘jar’ size; small, medium or large. I picked small which said it held eight ‘scoops’ of different kinds of candy.
Now, when you think of a candy scoop, do you imagine those big metal ones in candy stores from back in the day? Yep, me too!
That is not what this company meant. Candy Jar considers a ‘scoop’ to be about 4oz which is about a small handful. Looks like about a third of a cup in a little plastic bag.
I was also pretty disappointed that the ‘jar’ was flimsy plastic! I
hoard collect glass containers and I thought this would be a fantastic container for something. Wrong.
There are some pluses though; the candy is actually great quality and they have a fantastic selection. I got my chocolate nonpareils.
Verdict: I paid $27 dollars for my candy jar and, although the confectionaries were delectable, it just isn’t worth it. Skip it!
What was your last late night splurge?
