Make Two, Top-Selling Items in One Machine - Click to read more

Cincinnati, Ohio

It’s never been easier to expand year-round sales and make two blockbuster, profit-packed products in one machine. Once warm, the #2182 Combo Kandy King will make 4 lbs. of frosted nuts in about 15 minutes and 5 gallons of caramel corn in about 20 minutes.

The mouth-watering smell of cooking caramel corn and the sugar and spice smell of the frosted nuts will draw the crowds, plus the warm nuts are especially popular in the cooler months.

It’s a cinch to switch back and forth between the two foods. The digital heat control let’s you clearly set and see the temperature so you don’t burn the products, making it easier to train staff and for anyone to run. Plus, the Combo Kandy King is available in right and left hand dump options.

Make profits pop and savor the sizzling sales of cheese corn.

To make sales really skyrocket, pair it with Gold Medal's delicious, creamy Cheddar Classic (Kosher Dairy), Platinum White Cheddar (Kosher Dairy), Cheddar Pure Gold (Zero Trans Fats), White Cheddar Easy or Deluxe Cheddar Easy. These or any of the other tasty flavors are a recipe for successful year-round sales and gift tins.

Now, it's even easier to attract new customers and meet the demands during busy times, while keeping costs low. Gold Medal continues to lead the industry and set trends with the latest innovations: the new energy efficient Super Pop Maxx kettle and EcoSelect popcorn bags.

The 16-oz. Super Pop Maxx kettle has a unified heating element, which uses the lowest possible energy with the maximum popping capacity. (Businesses can make 16 of the 32-oz size bags of popped corn every three minutes.) It also saves valuable counter space-it has the same footprint as the 12/14-oz. Pop Maxx-and can be run on a standard 15-amp plug.

Businesses can also "go green" with the new, eye-catching laminated popcorn bags. The bags, which are made with EcoSelect natural-fiber papers, tap into the red-hot trend that promotes the use of environmentally friendly products. They're also grease resistant to keep the butter topping from coming through the containers. The bags are FDA-compliant and are manufactured using a heat-sealed bottom to prevent leaks. They are available in 32, 46, 85, 130, 170 oz. sizes.
