Home/ Fun Catering Carts/ Candy Floss Cart
The number one most popular treat, candy floss, fairy floss, cotton candy, papas beard, or ghosts beard. Every nation seems to have its own name for it but it all refers to the magical spun sugar dessert.
Made using an electric machine that heats and melts sugar. Then spinning it through tiny holes to create that fluffy spider web confection that everyone loves.
Candy floss is great for weddings, parties, college balls and corporate events.
Pink is a firm favourite, but we offer various flavours including;
Fluffy magic floss is often booked for the children, but ends up being enjoyed by guests of all ages. Watching the candy floss being made is almost as much fun as eating it and never fails to amaze the younger guests.
For those who are worried about the health concerns with candy floss, although it is basically just flavoured sugar, it is more air than sugar. Indeed a standard serving has far less sugar than a soft drink.
Add Popcorn Machine Hire To Double The Fun.
One of our most popular fun foods options is to add popcorn. Which can be supplied together on the same cart. Although ice cream seems to be a bit of a rising star when it comes to additional options.
One operator can operate and serve both items, reducing the price for you, but giving your guests twice the treat. Popcorn can be supplied, sweet, salted or in various gourmet flavours.
We offer a range of carts that the candy floss can be supplied on, they include;
We can also design and build a completely one off custom structure for sales promotions or exhibition use. It also possible to supply floss in branded tubs as part of a sales promotion or exhibition.
We can also theme carts up for holiday events such as Halloween, Christmas, Valentine etc.
The Real Secret Behind Candy Floss.
Most people will talk about melting points of sugar, centripetal force etc. But thats just a cover story.
In the bottom of each c machine ( cotton candy machine if your are American), lives a band of happy goblins, merrily taking the sugar and knitting it into the fluffy sweet confectionary we all know and love. Our operator then twizzles a stick to collect the floss.
But shhhhh! Don't tell everyone, its meant to be a secret.
