Fluffy clouds of spun sugar may bring up memories of county fairs and Disneyland trips. But these days, cotton candy is popping up in some unexpected places. From specialty shops to weddings, fresh cotton candy is all the rage.
For Lucia Rios, owner and creator of Twisted For Sugar, cotton candy is more than a trend. It was her life saver.
“After my second child, I was dealing with post-partum depression,” Rios shared with us, “and I decided to stay home and heal instead of going back to work.”
Her family had often brainstormed ideas for a “side-hustle,” and cotton candy kept coming to the surface. During her time at home with her babies, Rios decided to bring that dream to life.
