    Best Flavor Combinations – Plus Which Candies WON’T Work, December 13, 2010
    By 
    Compay (New Orleans, LA) –

    This review is from: Nostalgia Electrics PCM805 Hard & Sugar-Free Candy Cotton Candy Maker (Kitchen)
    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.

    Absolutely SWEET!!!, August 16, 2010

    This review is from: Nostalgia Electrics PCM805 Hard & Sugar-Free Candy Cotton Candy Maker (Kitchen)
    My cotton candy maker arrived 6 days ago and I’ve used it every day since.

    I heated it up for about 8 minutes before adding the sugar/candy, and the floss appeared about a minute after that. Since there were a lot of kids lined up to test the results, the two plastic cones that come with it weren’t nearly enough to go around so we used thin 12″ long wooden dowel rods which you can get at a craft store for about 5 cents each.

    Before you make your first batch, you may want to watch some clips on making cotton candy on youtube. There is a certain technique to it but once you get the hang of it it’s very easy.

    We had it running, on and off, for about an hour as we tried different flavors and candies. The motor kept going strong the whole time. Make sure it’s on a stable surface because the kids will want to lean in as far as they can to watch it.

    It works with both hard candy and the sugar cotton candy mixes like Flossine. We found that it doesn’t work as well with the hard candy that’s typically pretty sticky, like Jolly Ranchers. The manufacturer also recommends not using round hard candy, like sour balls.

    Clean up is a cinch. The metal spinner part and the plastic bowl come off, then you just soak them in hot water for a few minutes and the sugar dissolves.

    Definitely the most fun appliance I’ve ever owned!

    Love this product!, December 7, 2011

    This review is from: Nostalgia Electrics PCM805 Hard & Sugar-Free Candy Cotton Candy Maker (Kitchen)

    I have a few things to say, both about this product and the things you can use to make cotton candy with it, about the hateful and (sorry) uninformed feedback from some buyers, and about expectations on planet earth.

    First, those expectations: you can go buy a chimpanzee. You can put him in little clothes and ask him to shake your hand, and you can giggle as he eats pieces of banana. And you can either admit to yourself that it’s a chimpanzee, or you can fool yourself into thinking it’s a live-in Certified Public Accountant.

    Go with the first option. Enjoy the handshakes and banana nibbling. Because if you hand him your W-2s and your bank statements and your box of receipts, you’ll be really unhappy when you come back on April 15th and he hasn’t prepared your Income Tax returns.

    He’s a chimp. He TOLD you in the ad that led you to buy him that he is a chimp. It never said “Chimp CPA who can also whip up a heckuva chocolate souffle.”

    That was YOU projecting YOUR desires on him. Not him making promises he didn’t and couldn’t keep.

    So please, people: before you buy this product and get on here and give it a One-Star review stating how disappointed your 75 party guests were that they had to wait a whole 5 minutes each for a ball of candy floss made of chewy caramels, THE PRODUCT DESCRIPTION CLEARLY TOLD YOU WHAT YOU WERE GETTING YOURSELF INTO.

    – This product is adorable, and so versatile in that it creates delicate cotton candy out of not only traditional commercial candy floss, but also common table sugar and an almost unlimited variety of hard candies.

    – “Almost” unlimited is stated very clearly in the description and the more helpful user reviews, as well as the enclosed direction manual. How many times do you have to read “soft candies and Jolly Ranchers and gummy candies do NOT work” before you stop screaming here “I used soft candies and jolly Ranchers and gummy candies and they did NOT work!” Seriously, how many times are you going to stick your hand in the chimp’s mouth while he’s eating his banana, each time screaming “Ow! Why did he BITE me?”

    – There are products on the market, many available here on amazon.com, that cost into the thousands. These are great machines for when you own a carnival concession, or rent out to party planners and catering managers. But this unit? It costs less than 40 bucks. Hello? I don’t think I REALLY need to educate you here. You’re lucid enough to use a computer to find and order such items, so there is an assumption that you can take certain crucial bits of info and interpret them knowledgeably (or at least rationally). IT’S FORTY BUCKS! Do you think Ringling Brothers execs sit there smacking themselves on the head, saying “Darn it all! We bought all these two-thousand dollar machines, when we could have just spent 35 bucks a pop — with free shipping!” Nosir. A $35 machine does a $35 machine’s work. And if you thought you’d stumbled upon the goose that laid the golden egg, I hate to report that the sad fact of life we learn here is “you get what you pay for.”

    That all being said, what you PAID for is a darned good unit!

    If you’re having the fly-away problems reported by some, you have to realize (a) it’s fibrous, sticky candy being made, not adobe blocks, so yeah… gravity doesn’t have much say in this; and (b) if you’re vigilant in properly catching it on your cones, this is minimal at worst. Just be careful to do it, if this troubles you, in an area where a few stray wisps of flying sugar floss won’t mess with your head. I was going to prop the unit up next to my grandmother’s antique lace wedding dress from 1932, but instead I decided to do it on my kitchen counter with the range hood exhaust fan on. But I’m funny that way, I guess.

    All the complaints of the candies used to make floss, I’m sorry but: I am dismissing these summarily for the reasons of not paying attention as stated earlier.

    I used two different brands of floss. Both worked flawlessly and BOTH — with just a tablespoon of product as measured by this machine’s enclosed measuring scoop — had me wondering if I’d have to start a second cone. Not because it became scary-huge, but because I thought it looked like WHAT I WOULD EXPECT A HOME COTTON CANDY CONE TO LOOK LIKE WHEN FILLED TO REASONABLE CAPACITY. I stuck it out bravely and made it all fit on one. I’m daring that way.

    I also used plain old, bottom-shelf, store-brand white sugar. Again: flawless floss, and more than the “two small bites” several reviewers complained of. But also bear in mind that “two bites” of cotton candy are not equal to two bites of meat loaf. Cotton candy is simply not as dense. That’s why it’s called “cotton candy” and not “candy loaf”. And I don’t think meat loaf would work well in this machine either, but I’m sure that somewhere out there someone is totally miffed that their…
