Cotton Candy – When Should I Buy?

Cotton Candy Bundle

We get asked all the time – When is the perfect time is to order Rainbow Cotton Candy?

Yes, there is a specific time frame in which it is best to order. We want the cotton candy to be fluffy and fresh for your event, making you 100% satisfied with your order.  If you follow our guidelines below, then your order will be as fresh as possible and arrive in a timely manner.

Make sure to place your order about 2 weeks prior to your event date. This gives us time here at Rainbow to process, manufacture and ship your order. Shipping may take up to 5 business days via Fed Ex Ground, depending on its destination.  Home Delivery runs Tuesday through Saturday and commercial delivery runs Monday through Friday, excluding Holidays.  Commercial delivery is always less expensive, so if possible have your order shipped to a business location.  We manufacture in Arizona, so if your location is close to Arizona it will arrive sooner than orders shipping to the East Coast.  If you need your cotton candy sooner or are concerned about the arrival date, please give us a call at 1-800-726-8918 and we will do everything we can to make sure you have Rainbow Cotton Candy for your event.

Cotton candy freshness

You do not need to worry about the freshness of the cotton candy. Our guarantee, when it arrives at your doorstep, is that it will still be as delicious as the day we made it.  If it arrives earlier than expected, the cotton candy should last until your desired date provided you store it in a cool area out of direct sunlight.  We have had bags of our 1 ounce Rainbow Cotton Candy sitting in our kitchen pantry for over 30 days and they are just as fluffy as the day we made them.  If for any reason you are not satisfied with our Cotton Candy when it arrives, please give us a call and we will do whatever we can to fix the problem.

Thank you for considering Rainbow Cotton Candy for your party or event!

Rainbow Cotton Candy Goes Vogue!

Its always cotton candy season! And on this sizzling summer day in sunny Arizona, Rainbow Cotton Candy had an outdoor photo shoot! That brought the meaning “hot” to a whole new level for our spokes model Lauren Norton. Sporting her freshly made Rainbow Cotton Candy, Norton is shot exploring the cities of Chandler and Tempe. We were inspired to do a shoot because even though cotton candy is fun and playful there is a glamorous side to it! Ideally, we know cotton candy isn’t the same as a Prada handbag, but if you think outside the box, there is a world of possibilities that cotton candy can be used for! It’s as simple as adding a cotton candy garnish for your champagne glass or for topping of a beautiful cake with a wave of fluffy color. So here we are, bringing out the inner chic of cotton candy and inspiring you to think outside the classic party favor and really show people how to bring out the inner cotton candy creativity!

“Even though the weather wasn’t great, it was still so much fun! Plus, when I needed a break in the shade I could enjoy munching on some of that yummy cotton candy,” said Norton.

So next time you’re out on the town exploring your city take some Rainbow Cotton Candy with you for that needed sugar rush when your legs are getting tired. Send us your “Vogue” cotton candy shots and you could be featured on our Instagram! Oh, and by the way, if you’re interested in spokes modeling, we pay in Starbucks 😉


The locations of this shoot are at Tempe Center of the Arts, Tempe Town Lake, and Railroad tracks on Hardy and Warner Rd.

Perfect Party Addition!

It’s always cotton candy season! So why shouldn’t you utilize this tasty treat at all events? This past weekend we were fortunate enough to have pictures sent to us from a birthday party where our 1 oz. personalized bags were a huge hit!

Kylie, the birthday girl, requested the grape flavored cotton candy for her and all of her friends. The fun flavored fluff was packaged in our 1 oz. bags with a customized sticker on the front! The sticker read “Kylie’s 4 years old! Have a Mer-aculous time!” The Mer-aculous was a play on words since the sticker also had a mermaid on it. Our customized cotton candy bags are a perfect sized party favor that is a fabulous addition to any goodie bag!

People were delighted when they saw the delectable cotton candy and grinned gladly as the sugary sweet treat melted in their mouth. Rainbow Cotton Candy’s personalized bags were a hit at this party and many others so order yours now to have the fluffy favor at your next event!

It’s always Cotton Candy season! Today marks the day of Rainbow Cotton Candy’s first blog! So what’s a better topic to start with than getting to know the people who created Rainbow? Founder and owner, Greg Wolf, started Rainbow Cotton Candy in 1990. In the year 2000 he partnered with Scott Arbuckle, which resulted in Rainbow Cotton Candy sales in over 5,000 video stores across the USA. Then in 2004 his new sidekick, Sheri Johnson, (aka: the general manager) joined the company to create the dream team.


Q&A: Greg


Q: Ok, so the question everyone is wondering about is, “How did you get into the cotton candy business?”


A: “Well, at first I owned a beverage route company and one of my clients was Rawhide, a western theme town. The company who Rawhide previously purchased cotton candy from went out of business, and Rawhide convinced me to start making cotton candy for them. From there I was able to innovate new ways to package and sell, which built my business to what it is now.”

Q: “Why do you think Rainbow Cotton Candy is one of the most successful businesses you have started?”

A: “We have a great team which consistently makes a quality product. When people buy a bag of Rainbow Cotton Candy, not only are they purchasing a great tasting candy, they are also creating memories.”

Q&A: Sheri

sheri 2Q: “What’s the best part of your job?”

A: “When I walk into the office every day, I get to smell the sweet cotton candy aromas that take me back to my childhood days and memories.”

Q: “What’s your favorite cotton candy flavor and why?”

A: “Lemon! A lot of people turn their nose up at it, but I think it has the best pop of flavor in your mouth!”

Well, you heard it here first! Now you know a little of the background behind Rainbow Cotton Candy!
