Get A Cotton Candy Machine For Birthdays And Parties That Guests Won't Forget

Updated on April 27, 2011

Stopping by the cotton candy machine at carnivals is an important part of the carnival experience. Cotton candy can be purchased in stores but it is best when it is fresh and hasn't been sitting in a bag for days, weeks, or months on a store shelf.

For kids birthdays, summer parties, bar-b-que's and any gathering of friends and family at your home, how awesome is it that you can actually set up a cotton candy machine and provide a welcomed sugary, fluffy, cotton candy treat.

You can make it a little ahead of time, or make it on your own cotton candy machine while everyone is standing by watching excited to get some fresh, fluffy colored cotton candy.
