The history of candyfloss dates back to the early 1900s when a dentist named William Morrison and a candy maker named John C. Wharton invented a machine that could spin sugar in 1897. They debuted their invention at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904, and it was an instant hit.
Initially, candyfloss was considered a luxury treat that only the wealthy could afford due to the high cost of the machine and the sugar used. However, as the machines became more affordable and the popularity of the treat grew, it became a staple at fairs and carnivals around the world.
The process of making candyfloss is relatively simple. Sugar is heated to a liquid and then spun at high speeds using a cotton candy machine.
As the sugar spins, it solidifies and is collected on the sides of the spinning bowl, forming thin strands of sugar that are then wound onto a cone or stick.
Candyfloss comes in a variety of colours and flavours, including traditional vanilla pink and blue raspberry, as well as more unique flavours like bubble gum and sour apple.
The colours and flavours are achieved by adding special powdered food colouring and flavour extracts to the sugar mixture before it is spun.
