Chewing gum veding machine/ Gum ball machine/ Bubble gum machine

Hi everyone

  • Is gum ball machine (AmE) the same as chewing gum vending machine, bubble gum machine or bubble gum vending machine. If so, which ones are used the most in British English?


They can all be correct–it depends on what you mean. A gum ball is a large round ball. Chewing gum is not the same thing as bubble gum because you cannot blow bubbles with it. And a bubble gum machine makes bubble gum or dispenses it free, while a bubble gum vending machine likely expects to have coins inserted. It depends on the intent.
