Congratulations on your purchase of a Carousel Gumball Machine! One of the first questions you might have with your new machine is what type of gumball or candy should you put in your gumball machine? All our home use gumball machines are pretty versatile and are able to dispense .62 inch gumballs, candy like Skittles, Peanut M&M's, Mike & Ikes or Hot Tamales or other small candy items..
Whether you have the King Carousel Gumball Machine, Old Columbia Carousel Gumball Machine, Junior Carousel or Petite Carousel Gumball Machine, all Carousel Gumball Machines are designed to vend the same sized gumball or candy.
If you would like to vend gumballs, choose a gumball that is ⅝” in diameter or smaller. Or, make it easy and purchase Carousel Gumballs, which will vend perfectly from your new Carousel Gumball Machine. Other smaller candies or gum will also vend well, including chiclet gum, or candies like Skittles, M&Ms (both plain and peanut), Mike & Ike’s, Hot Tamales or smaller pressed sugar candies.
Please note: 1” gumballs, like the ones you might find in commercial machines at the mall or grocery store will NOT vend through a carousel gumball machine.
