I’ve found the key to happiness and it’s natural, organic cotton candy made with the Nostalgia Electrics Retro Series Cotton Candy Maker  and YumEarth Organic Candies!

My daughter loves cotton candy so we decided to get her this Nostalgia Electrics Retro Series Hard and Sugar Free Cotton Candy Maker for her birthday.  I thought it would be easier to use since you can use hard candy instead of flossing sugar but my expectations weren’t very high.  Man are we pleasantly surprised!

The Nostalgia Electrics Retro Series Hard and Sugar Free Cotton Candy Maker is easy to use (my 11 year old easily makes it herself) and the cotton candy is a good texture!  It works really well with hard candy.  We tried it with Jolly Ranchers and YumEarth candy drops.  The flavor is really true to the candy you use so if you like the candy, you will like the cotton candy.

The best part of this for me is that we can use YumEarth organic candy drops to make natural, organic cotton candy!  (If you want to know why we love Yum Earth candies so much, check out my post here.)  Cotton candy that has 100% of vitamin C? Yes please!  This is just the best thing ever!  My kids love it, I love it, and our guests love it!

Natural, organic cotton candy that taste great!

Each person can choose their own flavor and with so many flavors to choose from the choices are almost endless!  Of course we like cotton candy made from the YumEarth fruit drops, but we are having so much fun with root bear flavored cotton candy, sour lemon cotton candy, peppermint cotton candy and even hot chili pepper cotton candy!

It’s still candy, but it’s all natural and organic.  Eating organic cotton candy that’s made with real fruit juices, with no artificial colors, sweeteners, or flavors, makes me feel good letting my kids eat this yummy treat!

If you’re looking for a cotton candy maker that’s simple to use and low cost, we just love our Nostalgia Electrics Retro Series Hard and Sugar Free Cotton Candy Maker!  If you want to feel good about eating the cotton candy, we love using YumEarth organic candy drops!

We love all of the YumEarth candies in our organic cotton candy:

  1. I had no idea that they made cotton candy machines that use hard candy, and what a great idea to use organic candy! That is so brilliant. My kids would go nuts over it 🙂
