and get one of my life-long desires: a professional cotton-candy machine. You know, the kind they have at carnivals and fairs. I broke down and ordered it tonight. So here is my question: The cotton candy sugar comes in a zillion colors, one of which is orange...one might say a bright pumpkin color. So this gets me thinking.....in addition to using this thing for summer BBQ's and such....do you think this might work as a Halloween treat too? My husband volunteered to dress as the clown from "IT" and serve it up to the trick or treaters. I'm wondering though, if parents would let thier children accept a "home-made" treat like that? It would be a make to order type thing, with "IT" spinning the sugar as the kids watch. I would still give out the usual candy of course. The "Flossing-sugar" is surprisingly cheap anyway, so even if I got 100 kids (which I won't) it wouldn't cost me more than 5 bucks for the sugar supply. Also, I don't have a circus theme or anything,just a general haunted house..witches, ghosts, monsters, all the usual suspects. Would a clown look too out of place? I'd love some feedback from you guys. Thanks in advance!
