The sweet history of Candy Floss

The sweet history of Candy Floss

Ironically mechanically made Candy Floss was invented in 1897 by a DENTIST and his confectioner colleague. This theme continued with another American dentist patenting the name “cotton candy”.   By the 70’s an automatic cotton candy machine had been invented and the sweet treat became widely available at fairs, carnivals and shops!

Today Cotton Candy has become a food that goes hand in hand with circus and fairground days out, however further afield the making of this treat has become an art form as shown in this clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nchZC0imsGU


Widely available in different colours and flavours the team at Chocolate Fountain Hire spend long days perfecting the art of creating the perfect shape for our candy floss and of course taste testing new varieties
