What Size Gumballs Should I Buy?

We offer a variety of shapes and sizes for a wide range of vending machines and needs. The smallest sizes start from just over a half inch and go up to 2 inches in diameter.  With all these choices, how can you be sure which size is right for you?  

If you’re buying gum balls for an older or home use machine, you’ll most likely need .62 inch size. This product is typically sold in 3,650-4,800 count per box.  Most modern, professional grade machines dispense 1 inch gumballs.  The one-inch size is sold 850 pieces per box and weighs 14-17 lbs. 

In order to accurately determine what size you need, you can empty your machine and measure the opening of the dispensing wheel. If the opening is slightly larger than one inch, about the size of a quarter, then your machine will vend the 1” size. If the opening is closer to the size of a dime, then we recommend the .62” diameter..

The size chart below will help you determine which size your machine can vend.  Most of our ball gum is round but some come in unique shapes like our Colossal Fruit and Spinning Tops. Check the description on the individual product pages to determine if your machine is compatible
