Cake pops have stretched peoples creativity to the max, the fact that you can make a bubble gum dispenser cake pop blows my mind. The fact that we put quarters into a machine and get candy out, also blows my mind. These gum dispensing machines were invented in the early 1900’s by, you guessed it, those sugar loving Americans. And I devoured them any chance I could get. I was always partial to the white gum balls, I don’t know why, I guess I thought they tasted the best.
But one of the best things about gum ball machines (and all candy dispensers for that matter) is that they are like a box of chocolates, you never know what (color or flavor) you’re gonna get! Which reminds me of a certain crazy street, where you really never know what you are going to see when you step out the door… A beautiful old school gumball machine or a guy with no pants on walking down Haight street. Luck of the draw I guess.
