Pink stuff on a stick

Monday, 13 January 2014 11:00:00 Europe/London

Once upon a time a little girl by the name of Tia asked her mother could she go the fair. Her mother agreed and the very next weekend she took Tia to the fair and let her go on many of the rides.  She went on the Construction Zone, Monkey Jump, Fun Slide, Tea Cups and Bumper cars.


Tia was so excited and wore a very big smile all day long. Towards the end of the day Tia asked her mother could she taste the pink stuff on the stick. Her mother looked to see what Tia was pointing at and seen the Candy Floss Supplier offering candyfloss bags too.

Tia walked across with her mum to the Floss man as he moved the stick around the bowl covering the stick with sticky sweet candyfloss. Tia thought it was scrumptious and weeks later asked her mum could she buy her some candyfloss. “Where would I buy it from” replied her mum. Tia sighed and replied “online of course.”

Both Tia and her mother looked online and searched for candy floss supplies and found Empire Popcorn. All of her family now shop online and purchase candy floss and popcorn too.

Candy Floss

Cotton candy as it was also known was first recorded during the mid 1700's. During that period, spun sugar was an expensive, labour-intensive commodity hence not available to the public. Candy floss is the same thing as cotton candy.  Both names are adopted from the original name, fairy floss. 

Machine spun cotton candy was invented in 1897 by William Morrison and John C. Wharton. Its first public appearance was at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904 as ‘Fairy Floss’ with great success.

In the 1970s an automatic cotton candy machine was developed which made the product and packaged it. Since then the creations and innovations of this machine have vastly improved production and availability enabling it to be sold at carnivals, fairs, and stores during the 70s.

Candy Floss is mainly made up of air, but the sugar creates a large volume and physically large servings. A standard serving on a stick contains approx 115 dietary calories and is approximately 30 grams. It is often sold by Candy Floss Suppliers in bags, as well as sticks.

General machines which are used to make candy floss incorporate a bowl into which granulated, coloured sugar (or separate sugar and food colouring) is poured.  There are heaters next to the rim of the head that melt the sugar, which is squeezed ou  tiny holes by force.

The sugar solidifies in the air and then caught in a larger bowl which produces a cotton like product, which builds up on the inside walls of the larger bowl. At this point the candy floss machine operator twirls a stick, cone, or their hands around the rim of the large catching bowl, gathering the sugar strands into portions which are served on stick or cone, or in plastic bags.
