Life is Sweet!

Sweet & Dandy Cotton Candy Co. was founded in 2018 by local Nanaimo entrepreneurs Kris Ireland & Clay Rookes.

This dynamic husband and wife team bring an exuberant energy to everything they do and it shines through with their unique take on this long beloved carnival treat!

"We have had the honor of participating in weddings, birthdays, showers, anniversaries and more! We have collaborated with local restaurants, bars and bakers to put a fun twist to meals, treats and drinks and we look forward to sharing our adventures and creations and celebrations with you all!"

We look forward to seeing you there!

Although things look a bit different these days, on a typical year you will find us at markets and events all over Central Vancouver Island. from street markets and fairs to special events and festivals you can find us at our market booth serving up fresh spun Cotton Candy and smiles! You might even see us at a wedding, birthday party or celebration and you can book us to come to your event too!

We also offer a great selection of unique pre packaged Cotton Candy options for any occasion and offer local delivery and Canada wide shipping options. We have experimented with over 100 different flavours and combinations (so far) to bring you the freshest and most fun treat around! From everyone's favorites like Peach and Sea Salted Caramel to some truly outrageous flavours like Dill Pickle and Maple Bacon, we put a fun twist on this classic favorite and think you will agree that is is definitely NOT old fashioned Cotton Candy!
