Buderim couple Genevieve and Paul Loxley have put a new spin on an old favourite with their gourmet range of fairy floss.
Spun Fairy Floss is the latest sweet treat adding to the Sunshine Coast’s reputation for supplying gourmet goodies to insatiable foodies across the nation.
There are more than 100 flavours of Spun Fairy Floss in the ever-growing range.
Rose, fig, coffee, choc hazelnut, pine lime, peanut butter, pistachio, strawberry/banana, coconut, pineapple, fruit salad and mocha are just a few.
“Savoury flavours will also be available soon with the first contenders to be parmesan cheese and special herbal fairy floss such as coriander and dill,” Mr Loxley said.
He said the floss had been very well received because it is so original and there is nothing else like it in the world.
“The flavours are so authentic it takes people by surprise and they want to try them all,” he said.
“The floss is very high quality and it literally melts in your mouth which makes it very versatile. You can use it as garnish, to build flavours into your favourite meal or just enjoy it as a treat.”
Foodies and chefs have been paying close attention and as a result, diners can expect to see fairy floss making appearances on menus.
“The flavours are authentic and chefs love them,” Mr Loxley said.
“Spun Fairy Floss has been used in concoctions as varied as entrees, desserts and even cocktails. Danielle Dixon (Masterchef 2011 Top 12) has incorporated the fairy floss into desserts that have been extremely well received.”
The ingredients are all natural and they only use Australian sugar. They are certified kosher and the fairy floss contains no artificial colours or flavours. It is vegan, free of gluten, fat, sodium, preservatives and lactose and is Australian made.
Spun Fairy Floss makes appearances at markets and events around the country.
