Jaime's Local Love: Spun Paradise

Spun Paradise Cotton Candy Company is a family owned business created from two of their favorite things-- Hawaii and cotton candy!  They started serving up their organic cotton candy and quickly realized how much their clients loved cotton candy spun with flavors from the Islands.  With the demand growing, they moved their business from Hawaii to Arizona in 2015 and the local response in the Valley has been overwhelmingly positive! They continue to take pride in offering the tastiest, fluffiest, freshest cotton candy made with only natural and organic ingredients.
