If there’s one thing we love about German discount superstore Aldi — aside from the budget-friendly groceries and stellar seasonal home decor gems, of course — it’s their dedication to reusable packaging. From desserts in shooter glasses to frozen meals in ceramic bowls, all over the store you can always find a tasty bite in a dish you can reuse for years to come. And just in time for the holiday season is a sweet treat in a stunning glass jar.

Crazy Candy Co., an Aldi-exclusive private-label, just dropped the fan-favorite Holiday Berries (blueberry-, raspberry-, and blackberry-flavored hard candies) and Christmas Mix (apple- and cherry-flavored hard candies) in stores. And the real cherry on top? The 34-ounce glass jars with lids they come in.

For only $6.49, you can get over two pounds of mouth-watering candies that’ll last you through the busy holiday season (and beyond, if you’re lucky) so you can reuse the heavy-duty, old-fashioned sealed glass candy jar. It’s perfect for filling with treats (for you or your pets!), loading up with cookies or candies to give away as a gift, or utilizing as a stylish storage container. At 8 inches by 5 inches, you can fill it with flowers, grains, toiletries, nuts, sea shells, or even with sugar to create your very own holiday village in a jar for some festive Christmas kitchen decor. You might grab a few so you have enough for all of the toppings you’ll need for a DIY hot chocolate bar!

If you’re not near an Aldi (or they’re sold out at your local store), don’t worry — you can get the Holiday Berries or the Christmas Mix on Amazon for a few dollars more. You can also snag this similar candy jar for less, and if you’re looking for another shape, these similar candies from Amazon come in a smaller adorable glass jar. It doesn’t get any sweeter than that.
