Spun paradise is an organic cotton candy produced here in Hawaii. I found it in a natural foods store specializing in local, vegan, and organic products. I found out later that Spun Paradise can be purchased online with the help of Amazon.com. Spun Paradise also has their own website available. This works out really nicely, because my friends are always envious when I post pictures of me and my pals enjoying cotton candy at the beach.
I picked up the pumpkin spice flavor, mostly to torment a friend of mine on the mainland who has a troubling affection for all things flavored pumpkin spice. I was surprised to find the cotton candy had a sturdy texture like spun sugar should, a sweet taste, but the spicy flavor of cinnamon really came through without being too strong or overbearing. One of my friends said it tasted, “like Christmas” and I have to agree, it did have a sweet, sentimental quality to it. Great on the cinnamon, but I didn't really pick up much of a pumpkin flavor.Next time I'll be sure to try some of the tropical flavors available, such as mango, coconut, lemon, green apple, and sea salt caramel.
