A container-to-tape dispenser for drywall joint compound intended for use in a point-of-purchase container holding a supply of the compound. The dispenser includes a main body having a generally rectangular elongated base and an inverted generally U-shaped top portion. The main body is removably mounted in and extends between diametrically opposed tape entrance and exit slots formed in the container. A longitudinally extending channel is formed between the base and the top portion. An opening is formed in the top portion to permit a supply of the compound to flow into the channel. The top portion further has a pair of identical spaced side extensions, with a pair of spaced side grooves being formed between the base and said extensions. The grooves function as guides when pulling a length of tape through the dispenser and maintain the edges of the tape relatively dry and free from compound. A tape roll holder is suspended from the container adjacent the tape entrance slot and a length of tape is threaded into the dispenser using a tape threader. A supply of the compound is deposited on the tape as it is pulled through the dispenser, the thickness of compound being controlled by a vertically adjustable metering gate of the dispenser.
