Remember Making Cotton Candy and Sno Cones at Home?
It seems like like yesterday, my brothers and I used to to have cotton candy and sno cone makers. Of course I am talking about 50 years ago, but fun times seem like they are more recent than they actually are. After eating all the real sugar, we would get our sleds out and go sledding for hours....

I was born in 1977. One of my favorite toys was a snoopy sno cone maker.

Oh, I remember them! Wonderful times, 60-odd years ago. We’d burn off that sugar in no time, playing outside every day ‘til dusk.

The originals are long gone, but over the last decade or so I’ve managed to pick up a sno-cone machine and a cotton candy machine at my local Goodwill store, almost new in the box, for a couple of dollars. Why someone would get rid of such things baffles me. Also scored a caramel corn maker that works beautifully.

I used to get them out when we’d have the neighbors over for cookouts during the summer, and the adults as well as the kids loved it - made it like a real party. Sadly, with the pandemic, seems get-togethers are now a thing of the past - I miss that greatly.

Oh, and a tip: if you add a little bit of Crystal Light strawberry-orange-banana powdered drink mix to the sugar in the sno-cone machine, it tastes exactly like what you get at the county fair!

Yes indeed, and candy apples, as well - those were a bit more involved, as you had to make a hard-crack-stage sugar syrup and dye it red, however, they took about as much time as it did taking all those little Kraft caramels out of their individual cellophane wrappers!

Re: Remember Making Cotton Candy and Sno Cones at Home?
I used to crave cotton candy sometimes (I think it was a mineral deficiency around that time of the month).

So I bought a cotton candy machine and it was great except I had to clean it after making 3 cottons. Which would have been OK but there were always people and/or kids around who wanted me to keep going. So the one time I did 4 in a row and the machine broke.

But it was fun using raw sugar, turbinado sugar & organic sugar.
