The gum balls were as expected. Traditional sized, colorful gum balls. Fresh and packed in little milk cartons.

Love this YUMMY treat!!!
I just hosted my sons first birthday luau, and the theme were gumballs in gumball machines. The gumballs were so fresh and in outstanding condition, that I couldn't wait to share them with my guests. I love the quality and the price! I also love that it arrived in just 1 week. I always shop at Oriental Trading, they're the BEST!!!!!! Aloha from Maui.....

These are really good. Gets kinda tough the longer you chew but overall good.

Lost flavor quickly
They were tasty but the flavor doesn't last long at all.

USED THESE TO MAKE BUBBLE GUM MACHINES FOR VALENTINE DAY FOR PRESCHOOL

Great item... priced a little high
Bought these for my daughter's class valentine's with a little note that says "You blow me away" and was sad to see that I could have got them considerably cheaper from a candy shop in town. I wasn't expecting that! Next time I'll do my "homework!"

These are just fine
I bought these to fill several "gel capsule" type candy bowls, so I needed something round and uniform, in different colors. (The filled item would look like a gigantic time-release capsule, clear on one half, red on the other. It is freestanding and displays the candy or gumballs.) Anyway, these surely fit the bill. My only complaints are -- after I received the gumballs I could tell more -- that they were kinda stale, not superfresh like prior reviews -- and that once I saw how many you got for the price I was a little less happy with the purchase. All in all, I am pleased with them and would recommend it to other people. The irony in all this? Right after I bought the gumballs for my "capsule" containers I found adorable gumball machines (that you fill with gumballs) at the dollar store!!

It was exactly what I wanted.
These made my grandson VERY happy. We hadn't been able to find refills for his gumball machine and low and behold here they were at Oriental Trading Company. Should have come here first!

A regular box of gum balls, nothing special
Thought there would be more for the price. Daughter still loved them tho.

Perfect addition to my candy counter
My girlfriend and I like to keep candy jars at home for guests and ourselves and these gumballs were a great addition to our "counter". We haven't had much company lately but we've already dug into these.
Even though they're small gumballs I prefer them to the larger ones. The freshness and flavor stand out, too. Even though the carton it came it listed all the colors' flavors, we don't need them to tell which is what. I put them in a glass jar to keep the freshness even longer and they look very inviting that way. Every time I have one it's a bit of a trip down memory lane- traditional colors and flavors- which is always a nice pick-me-up. The "milk carton" it came in was pretty cute, too- I was tempted to keep it but I couldn't find another use. Too bad!
After a few minutes the flavor does fade, and it gets a little tiresome to chew- but they're so small, it doesn't matter much to me. I just toss it and pop in a new one.
