Cotton Candy ? Tue, 10/10/06 5:02 PM (permalink)
Where can I buy pre-packaged cotton candy in or near the Dallas, TX area? Would like to find some in the 3-4 oz. size.

Thanks,
Dave

      Oh, just saw you have a hot dog cart in Terrell at the Tanger Mall, just down the road from me. I'll stop by and say hi, and have a dog and a brat.

        Have you thought about getting a machine and making some? There's a True Value in Mexia where you can rent a machine. http://www.truevalue.com/content/storefinder/results.asp?client=truevalue&address=&city=Dallas&state=TX&postalcode=&radius=100&product=JA Sorry about the long URL.

          Good idea Mitch! I bet Dave wants to sell it at his stand? He may need already made stuff though? But, maybe not? I think it would sell at your stand Dave, good idea!.

              My grocery store carries it. If you have a super Walmart near you, you might check there.

                  The Wal Marts in the Midwest have it in clear plastic pails. My autistic son LOVES his cotton candy!

                    The BEST cotton candy can be purchased through Fluffpop Gourmet Cotton Candy and Catering (www.fluffpop.com)

                    They offer gourmet cotton candy spun live for your event or they will package it for you. They offer a variety of flavors!!! Organic cotton candy, sugar free cotton candy, and exotic fruit flavors! They even have guava cotton candy!

                    It's absolutely the best cotton candy you will ever eat!

                      Since cotton candy is 100% sugar, I cannot imagine what sugar free cotton candy could be!

                        Organic cotton candy, sugar free cotton candy....

                        What? Like Chris says, cotton candy is spun sugar. And organic cotton candy? Why? Is the stuff being marketed to the brain dead? If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

                          organic = raw sugar
                          coton candy sugar is usually the processed white sugar
                           
                          sugar free could be made with stevia or one of the other newer "natural" sugar substitues.

                            I think I've noticed bags of cotton candy just about everywhere I shop.
                            I would try Walmart, Fiesta, Kroger and even possibly, Central Market.

                              Yes, but just because it can be done does not mean it should be done. After all, you just can't improve on spun sugar with artificial colouring and flavouring added.

                                  Hepcat - i couldnt agree more about the if it aint broke dont fix it thing, but like me there are many people in the world who love the stuff but can't eat it due to Diabetes, the stevia cotton candy looks the same and tastes the same, but doesnt spike my bloodsugar like "real" cotton candy does.
                                   
                                  Also the growing trend of ORGANIC is the new Hot Button item and you can promote the "Healthiness" of "organic" cotton and charge more

                                    Well said. That's precisely it in a nutshell.
                                     

                                     
                                    And it's also why I immediately turn away from any product with "organic" on the label.
