Whether you can enjoy candies with sugar, or are diabetic, here are flavor combos and suggestions plus what you CAN'T use.
First off, here is what WON'T work with this machine:
Skittles, Lemonheads or Boston Baked Beans
Hot Tamales or Ike ; Mikes
Gummy Bears or Worms
Gumballs or Round Candy
Citrus Slices or Starburst
Anything chewy, gummy or with too much cream
For best results, use no more than two pieces of candy (so it spins faster), but you can also cut/break candy into halves. One piece of candy on one side of the spinner, and two halves opposite that for better flavor combinations.
Good candy choices include Lifesavers (fruit, Hawaiian Fruit, Fruiteria, butter rum) but not their Mints (won't fluff), Werther's Original ; Chocolate Hard Candies, Butterscotch, Cinnamon Discs, Peppermints, and Coffee (but not Nips). Brach's Soda Poppers (Root Beer, 7UP, Dr. Pepper, Orange Crush) work great, but only use one candy cut in half or it won't fluff right.
Here's what I've come up with so far:
Orange Muffin: 1 Butterscoth + 1/2 Cinnamon + 1/2 Orange LS
Turtle Frappe: 1 Hard Coffee + 1 Werther's Caramel Chocolate
Raspberry Mocha: 1 Coffee + 1/2 Raspberry + 1/2 Werthers Choc.
Chocolate Covered Strawberry: Strawberry LS + 1 Werthers Choc.
Cherry Garcia: 1 Cherry LS + 1/2 Werthers Choc + 1/2 Vanilla
Candy Apple: 1 Green Apple + 1 Cinnamon Disc
Your cotton candy will be fluffier with sugar-based candy, though sugar-free still works fine. Avoid candies that have too many non-sugar ingredients; heavy creams or actual peanut butter will cause it to not fluff.
For best results, DO NOT stir your cone in a circle around the spinner (like how you would stir a pot of soup). That only works on big machines, you'll be too close to your heat source and some of the candy will burn. Instead, do that for just a few seconds to get some fluff on your cone. Then wave the cone side to side a few inches above the spinner, while slowly spinning it in your hand (like the way you twist your fork with spaghetti on it). That twisting will pull fluff towards your cone; you can even raise the cone a few inches every so often to pull more fluffed candy up and out of the bowl. Mostly you want to keep it away from the hot spinner.
This is a really fun product, and you're given many ways to experiment with flavors. Definitely get your hands on one.
This is an AMAZING cotton candy machine and I'm very satisfied with it; however there are good and bad things about it, such as:
-You can also use floss or regular sugar (just use the measuring cup that comes with it, no more than that) and it makes alot more than the hard candy would
-If you use hard candy cotton candy it starts coming out immediately and fast, but if you use sugar you have to wait about a minute before it starts coming out. It makes a big ball in about 1-2 minutes
-It heats up quick and makes little to no noise and doesn't vibrate around like other cotton candy machines
-It takes only 3-5 minutes, at most, to set all of it up
-Sugar and floss doesn't fly out everywhere
-comes with two reusable cones
-Fairly easy to clean up
-the hard candy(I used jolly ranchers) doesn't work so well.The cotton candy isn't fluffy and I believe it tastes awful
-Instruction booklet was a bit vague
Side-note: You want to let it cool for a few minutes between batches, and this machine is definitely only for small groups. After you finish using it you want to wash the bowl and top portion quickly because the sugar sticks there and starts to harden, and keep the disk on for a while because it is hot then soak it in hot water before washing(wash this piece thoroughly!). I hope this was really helpful and I really think this machine is worth the money! However, does anyone know where I can buy floss sugar at a store because I couldn't find it at Walmart, Target, and Food Lion! Your help is appreciated. :)
