More on our Vintage Candy Floss Machine:
Everybody just loves Candy Floss, whether old or young the sweet sugary taste has been a popular treat for over a century. It conjures up wonderful childhood memories of fun fairs, street carnivals, circus and seaside holidays as the special treat that you always looked forward to. “Candy Floss IS childhood, the best bright moments you wish could have lasted forever”.
Candy Floss or as the Americans call it “Cotton Candy” was first invented in 1897 by dentist William Morrison and confectioner John C Wharton and was first introduced to a paying public at the Worlds Fair and at the time they sold it as “Fairy Floss”.
Candy Floss is nothing but sugar however the magic comes from heating the sugar so that it liquefies, spinning it centrifugally through minute holes in which time the sugar rapidly cools down, solidifying into fine strands. These strands then build up around the edges of the drum and are caught on sticks which are spun by hand to build up fantastic tasting balls of candy floss.
