Ame De Wataame Makes Cotton Candy From Jolly Ranchers
October 13th, 2008
This quirky little invention from Japan will turn most hard candies (i.e. Life Savers or Jolly Ranchers) into custom flavored (and colored) cotton candy.
No more boring pink cotton candy here. Nope, in minutes, you’ll be cranking out blue raspberry, root beer, and grape cotton candy creations with this gadget. Combine a couple of candies to make new flavors like candy apple and strawberry watermelon. Think Jelly Belly, but in cotton candy form.
Just drop your favorite hard candy into the heating bin of the Ame de Wataame cotton candy maker, and in seconds, you’ll have a delicious custom spun sugar treat. I’d personally like to try an Atomic Fireball or some cinnamon red hots for a sweet and spicy surprise. You can even use it to make cotton candy from sugar free candies, but what fun would that be?
Need to satisfy a serious sweet tooth, but don’t live in Tokyo? The guys over at Japan Trend Shop are exporting these around the world for $159 USD (plus $60 EMS shipping).
