Radpack Gumballs

OK, get ready for five completely radical gumballs in one pack: Flaming Hot, Foaming, Colorful, Extremely Cool, and Super Sour.

Each of the five flavors in SweetWorks’ new Radpack Bubble Gumballs mix is over-the-top, and that’s an understatement.

Meet Ball of Fire, a gumball that gives habañero a run for its money; Mouth Mess, which oozes color and will instantly turn your tongue into a Picasso; Super Sour, a gumball guaranteed to make you wince (and possibly cry); Extreme Cool with ridiculously icy mint flavor; and Foaming Flavor, which should be avoided at all costs when wearing white.

If that doesn’t pique your interest, these extreme gumballs are also gluten-free, kosher-certified … and perfect for ambushing unsuspecting friends who are fully expecting a classic, cherry-flavored gumball. So evil.

We double-dog dare you to try a Radpack and give it a review at Candy.com. C’mon … do it!

Benefits of Bulk Candy

Bulk CandyWhile Candy.com believes that candy is a necessity, we understand that for some it’s more of an indulgent treat.

For both personal enjoyment and retail scenarios alike, bulk candy is a great way to get sweet offerings at a price that’s easy on the wallet. More than simply bins, bags and barrels of unwrapped pieces, modern bulk candy simply gives buyers an option to procure their favorite brands and flavors in larger quantities and lower per-piece cost. Even popular names are available in bulk candy through our online candy store, ensuring that even the pickiest candy lovers can get exactly what they crave.

 

Bulk Candy for Stores

When enticing customers with candy, many of the common obstacles to making a sale come in the form of quantity. For reasons that range for diet-busting amounts of calories to packages that simply contain more than is desired, many potentially profitable items remain on the shelves when there’s interest present. Stocking candy in bulk enables buyers to select exactly the amount they want or need, frees up valuable shelf and counter “real estate” and offers you a better profit margin with bulk pricing. In fact, drawn in by the experience of selecting their own bulk product or mix, those formerly reluctant customers may just end up buying more!

 

Bulk Candy for Homes and Offices??

The candy jar has long been a symbol of welcome, and there’s never been a better time to fill it with delicious treats. Candy in bulk is an economical choice when it comes to stocking your candy jar, bowl or other container of delights; Candy.com offers everything from lollipops to hard candies in amounts that satisfy any sweet tooth. Stop wasting money paying store prices for small bags of marked-up treats – you’ll find much larger quantities at much lower prices in our bulk candy store, and we’ll ship your order right to your front door!

If you’ve been craving a pound of lollipops or 5 pounds of luscious gumdrops, you’ve come to the right place to buy candy online. Get the sweetest deals at Candy.com and enjoy bulk candy bliss.

Ford Gum LogoFord Gum and Machine Co., Inc. is the American manufacturer behind the beloved Big League Chew, as well as unique licensed products such as Mike & Ike Bubble Gum, Hot Tamales Sugar Free Gum, and Smarties Gumballs.

The story of Ford Gum began in 1913.

Back then, 20-year-old Ford Mason was a roofing contractor and supplemented his income during the winter months in Buffalo, NY, with gum vending. The first U.S. gum ball machine was invented in 1888, and just a handful of entrepreneurs had ventured into the business.

Ford borrowed money to lease 102 machines and placed them in stores and shops of communities in western New York State. As Ford gained more experience, he was convinced that the penny gum ball could support him. At his peak, Ford had more than 500,000 vending machines perched on store counters and pipe pedestals and a nationwide system of service operators.

Flash forward to 2012.

Ford’s legacy lives on at the Ford Gum & Machine Co., which still has a commercial vending business, but gum vending has shifted dramatically.

“At that time, everything vended for a penny. There are no more penny vending machines and the majority of items today are capsules and toys,” explains Steve Greene, senior VP of sales and marketing, Ford Gum and Machine Co., Inc. “If you look at an eight rack of vending machines today, you will see two or three that vend candy, one that vends gum, and the rest are toys and capsules.”

The majority of Ford Gum’s business today is in retail sales—either branded products that the company manufacturers and markets for itself, or private label products Ford Gum manufactures for other marketing concerns.

One of its biggest deals was the 2010 licensing agreement for the Big League Chew brand along with the manufacturing equipment from the Rob Nelson Company.

“This deal brought back the product manufacturing to the United States at the Ford Gum facility in Akron, N.Y., and added 40 new jobs,” says Steve.

Big League Chew actually came to market 32 years ago via minor league pitcher Rob Nelson and former New York Yankee All-Star, Jim Bouton. The two met while both pitching for the Portland Mavericks, and created the gum as an alternative to chewing tobacco. Brilliant!

The same pouch that Rob and Jim dreamed up in the Mavericks’ bullpen back in 1977, can now be personalized with photos and names at MyBigLeagueChew.com.


Steve says it’s a fairly new program for Ford Gum, but he’s seeing a lot of pouches customized as wedding and party favors, and used for birthday parties and team functions. ($48 for 12 pack.)

Thinking outside of the pouch, Ford Gum also launched individually wrapped Big League Gumballs and Big League Bubblegum Lollipops at the Sweets & Snacks EXPO in Chicago this past May.

Big League Chew Gumballs and Lollipops

Both products are available in the Big League Chew flavors: Outta Here Original, Grape, Sour Apple, and Watermelon. (This also happens to be the order of best-selling Big League Chew flavors.)

Ford Gum has come a long way since 1913, and we’re looking forward to the next chapter in innovative gum products. Bring it on Ford!
