The history of cotton candy According to one version, the candy floss machine was invented in 1897 by William Morrison and John Wharton. They invented an electric machine where sugar was poured onto a spinning heated plate to melt and then pushed through a series of small holes. Although they obtained a patent for their machine in 1899, Morrison and Wharton first used the machine in 1904 at the St. Louis World’s Fair. They called the product fairy floss and sold it in cardboard boxes for 25 cents. This was very expensive for the time – half the entrance fee to the St. Louis World’s Fair, but they sold 68,655 boxes nonetheless. According to another version, cotton candy was invented in 1900 by Thomas Patton, who obtained a patent and introduced his machine that same year at the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus. Around the same time, a dentist in Louisiana introduced his own version of cotton candy, but he failed to get it patented. Cotton candy was extremely popular in 1904 and still is today. It is made up of 100% sugar or has a little food colouring added to make it more attractive. The sugar is melted, the liquid sugar is spun on a plate and then squeezed through small holes. When exposed to air, the sugar cools and solidifies, filling the centre of the candy floss machine with strands of sugar, and candy floss is formed. Typical cotton candy is a bit larger than an adult’s head, which makes it look huge to children. Also order a bubble machine for your child’s birthday!
