Gumballs are a ball of gum coated with a hard candy. They are often dispensed from a Gumball Machine. The origin of gumballs can be traced back to the Mayans; they chewed a sap called “Chicle” as early as the 3rd century AD. Gumballs have come a long way since then. At Candymachines.com you can purchase many colors, many flavors and styles of Gumballs in all different sizes and amounts. My most favorite Gumball is the basic White Gumball, it is always soft, sweet and chewy. Gumballs seem to hit the spot when I’m looking for something to quench my sweet tooth after a nice lunch at my local Pizzeria.
