Everybody loves gumballs! Unlike other sweet treats, they can be enjoyed for a long, long time—and with each perfect little sphere sporting a brilliant candy coating, they’re ideal for color-matching at special events. Whether you’re filling a gumball machine for the grandkids, celebrating school spirit, or planning a lovely wedding display, you’ll find our Gourmet Gumballs the perfect choice for pulling it all together. Technically, these are first-quality 850-count gumballs (the number represents uniform sizing in the candy industry), but here’s what really matters: there will be approximately 60 beautifully colored, delicious one-inch-diameter gumballs in each pound you order. We guarantee your guests will be delighted with the large size, glistening appearance and wonderful flavor of these premium gumballs.
Which color(s) would be best for your event? You have the advantage in that you can order these gumballs by the single color—we currently have 14 shiny hues to choose from—or in assorted colors (just the way you’d find them in that big, old-fashioned gumball machine that always stood just inside the doorway of your favorite drugstore or five-and-dime, waiting to take your hard-earned coins). Thus, you are in complete control of the look you want to achieve. Mixing single colors in a given ratio can work visual magic; we’d suggest a 1:1 ratio for team colors, and 3:1 or 4:1 to balance the bride’s color versus the groom’s.
Yes, we’ve found that candy buffets and decorations at weddings are the most popular uses for our colored Gourmet Gumballs. And our luscious Pink Gumballs are easily the most popular color we offer. Did we just nail that color or what? It’s hard to imagine anything prettier in a flower vase, a backlit frosted glass urn, or a punch bowl surrounded by mirrors. Our gumballs won’t melt in mild heat, and they make a wonderful base for cut flowers or handmade topiaries or stick figures or even signs and place cards. And best of all? You’ll love the price!
