There’s no denying the rise in popularity of using jars in non-traditional ways, but this summer we were introduced to a product in a jar we’d never seen before – Cloud Nine Cotton Candy. This cotton candy is made locally in Vancouver, B.C. and is the perfect example of a classic sweet treat with a modern makeover. From the packaging to the ingredients, it holds a sense of nostalgia while perfectly fitting with the trends of today.
Cloud Nine uses all organic sugar and ingredients in their cotton candy. The candy is also naturally coloured and flavoured, meaning a range of beautiful pastels with real flavours you can identify. Speaking of flavours, they’ve got 20+ to choose from and are always innovating to add to their list. When we first brought Cloud Nine into our retail shop, we chose watermelon, mango, strawberry, coconut, and London fog to put on our shelves. After a post on Instagram, we were convinced to bring in root beer and lychee as well (and we’re so glad we did)!
Cloud Nine’s unique business also has a food truck where they attend private events, farmers markets, and special occasions serving up freshly spun candy and other treats such as donuts and shave ice. The cotton candy in a jar is by far the easiest for gifting. We’ve included it in our gift baskets this year and had it purchased for children’s party favours, bridal shower gifts, birthday presents, and more! We’ve also heard a lot of suggestions and uses for this candy from delighted customers. Some people eat it straight out of the jar (we don’t blame them) while others add it to desserts and even cocktails!
This cotton candy (along with a few other Canadian treats) even made it into Taylor Swift’s dressing room.
And when you’ve finished polishing off your delicious cotton candy, head over to Pinterest and get to re-using that mason jar!
