MEET A PIONEER: Today, we'd like to introduce you to Christina Best, owner of an artistic cotton candy business called Sweet Spinners.
A native of Vassar, Christina started her business in 2019 just a few months before the COVID-19 pandemic began. Her operation is designed for fairs and festivals, as well as private parties, which has made the last year challenging. But, she said, it also inspired her to create some cotton candy "pivots," like cotton candy cakes, bites, and drops that can be dipped into drinks to make them unique.
But her sweet spot is artistic cotton candy creations she spins using pure, all-nature Pioneer Sugar.
"I buy it in 50-pound bags and wouldn't use any other sugar," she said. "Pioneer Sugar is very consistent and it also has a special place in my heart because many members of my family lived in Bay City and so I grew up seeing those piles of sugarbeets."
Christina is hoping for a busy 2021 filled with festivals and events across the state. If you are interested in having her at your event, send her a message on Facebook or call 989-823-4558.
