    Costco Business Centers

    I don't recall. I didn't want the hassle of having to open the bags so I didn't pay too close attention. Here is a link and it shows the bags but this store did not have any. https://www.costcobusinessdelivery.com/CatalogSearch?keyword=skittles

    These might be new, or Denver finally got one. They feel more like a Sam's club. They definitely cater to businesses with bulk meats, furniture, rows of candy, larger sized soups etc. The Denver outlet carries Double Bubble gum balls at 20.99 for 850. They have skittles but not in the big bags I am going to try some Hot Tamales and they were $6.69 a bag. They have Mike and Ikes, They did not have Runts as that would have been my 2nd choice. They did have M&M's etc. We already had a Costco Membership so this works out well. I just wish they carried the big bags of Skittles, which seem to be getting harder to find.

    Does one 54 oz bag fill the head? I just noticed that staples of all places has them for 7.99 not sure about shipping as they are not carried in stores.

    The place has AC so that is not an issue but I agree that skittles might make more sense. I read that gumballs seem to out sell chicle gum most of the time. I assume with chicle gum I can use the same wheel as nuts or piece candy.

    Thanks! Since I have side by side machines, what would you recommend to vend in the other machine, if I put gumballs in the other one?
  7. I purchased an OAK double $.25 Vending machine at an auction. I had to replace the locks but found 20 bucks in the machine which was about what I paid for the unit. I have a couple of questions. They had been selling raw peanuts and plain M&M's. The peanut side had all the money. They unit was in a bar so that makes sense. I am going to put this unit in our booth at an Antiques store and probably will not resell the unit, but I wanted to try to sell candy out of it. How do you handle the peanut allergy issue? I am probably looking to vend runts, skittles or PMM since they seem to be popular. I was intrigued by someone that mentioned an old A&W candy that seemed to vend well in adult locations. I think I want to stay away from gum. It I wanted to sell gumballs, I believe I would have to change out the rotating wheel at the bottom of the hopper? I have no clue what portions they were selling and I need to research how to adjust it so I am not giving out too much or too little. Am I missing anything? Thanks for the help! Mike
