Fundraiser Popcorn

When it comes to fundraising events, you need to choose one that appeals to as many people as possible. A fundraiser popcorn event can be just that, and even when you have decided on popcorn as a fundraiser you have choices.

First of all you could choose to promote ready to eat popcorn. This comes usually in tins, which can have logos printed on them, ready to eat in different flavours, like cheese or chocolate covered or caramel flavoured. Or you could purchase the corn kernels for kettle corn or microwave popcorn and let people pop their own when they want. Either way, popcorn is a good fundraiser because so many people eat it. What's better than renting a movie and munching on some popcorn? 

Well, if you have a sweet tooth, and a special event coming up, may be what you would prefer would be a cotton candy machine. Take a look below, to see if this seems better than a fundraiser popcorn event to you.

A Cotton Candy Machine Is The Most Popular Piece Of Concession Equipment!

 by Mike Yeager

A cotton candy machine is welcome at any festive occasion! Cotton candy is a favorite treat of young and old alike. If you are looking for concession equipment for a special event, you'll want to give the cotton candy maker top priority. A real crowd pleaser, there's always a line of people wanting cotton candy. Your guests will be delighted!

The cotton candy machine is a hot item for a fund-raiser. The raw materials are quite inexpensive, making for a wide profit margin. Cotton candy is so attractive, that once the first person has some, everybody notices and wants some too. A cotton candy machine usually pays for itself easily, making the rest of the sales pure profit for your fundraiser. Many people associate cotton candy with fairs, carnivals, and the circus. A cotton candy machine can bring that feeling to your event, however large or small it may be.

You know, cotton candy is a crowd pleaser, that's for sure, although it may not be too nutritious! It brings back memories for parents, and joy to young children too, and it is available in different flavours. You can rent the machine, and the paper cones used to put the cotton candy on are inexpensive as is the sugar. You could also use bags. This way you can have people take extra cotton candy home with them!

If you are looking for a less sweet option, then may be the fundraiser popcorn event is the way to go, or if you are really ambitious, do both! ~ Site Editor

Cotton candy has been around for nearly a hundred years. The interesting thing about a cotton candy machine is that it can take regular sugar and melt it into a liquid. The machine then spins the liquid sugar at a high speed and forces it through several tiny holes. As the liquid passes through the holes and cools it becomes a wispy, cotton like candy; a treat that is colorful, light and very tasty, all made from your cotton candy machine.
