The Only UL & UL Sanitation Listed Floss Machine

April 2, 2014

Gold Medal did it again. It has created the only UL & UL Sanitation Listed floss machines on the market today. Now, businesses and fundraisers can become their areas’ profit leader thanks to the patent-pending quick-release floss cap and floaters, and the newly designed cabinets.

Unique to Gold Medal, these state-of-the-art aspects:

  • Make cleaning a cinch without tools because of the spring-loaded retaining cap
  • The molded-rubber floaters, which can be easily adjusted to spin the perfect cotton candy in any climate, are bacteria and debris-resistant
Experience the huge difference of a smaller footprint. Gold Medal integrated the following features to help operators profit—no matter what their working space. Plus, the redesigned cabinet keeps the profits spinning throughout the years.
  • Secure floss heads during transportation thanks to the restyled, extremely compact Lock-N-Go® feature, now available as a standard feature on #3030C & #3052C
  • Prevent sugar from reaching the motor or switches with the redesigned bell housing sugar seal
  • Hold floss bowls in place using the new positioning brackets with bumpers
  • Easily replace cords with the IEC power connector—ideal for frequently moved machines
Gold Medal started the revolution 63 years ago and became the industry standard for cotton candy sales when it perfected a machine that automatically rolled paper into a tapered cotton candy cone. Sales greatly increased per hour and more locations could sell cotton candy, as the slow hand-rolling process was eliminated. And now it has done it again with the only UL & UL Sanitation Listed cotton candy machine in the world today.

These and other revolutionary innovations are why Gold Medal is still the gold standard for concession equipment and supplies. The company leads the way with flavors/Flossugar like traditional money-making “blue” and “pink” sugars (Boo-Blue and Silly Nilly), packs pucker power with items like Sizzling Lemon-Sour, sweetens the deal with Maple and a new seasonal Winter Frost, and boosts profits with the scrumptious chocolate-covered series of cherry, orange, and strawberry.

But operators need to act fast, reap rewards, and become the leader in customers’ eyes. With advances this monumental, the competitive edge will quickly become the new standard for cotton candy production.

Gourmet Popcorn is the 2013 Food Trend

May 21, 2013

Popcorn has been the perfect anytime, healthy snack for more than 4,000 years. But now, new flavor sensations are taking over the nation and consumers are craving twists to this whole grain treat. That’s why gourmet popcorn is the 2013 Food Trend, popping up everywhere like: specialty shops, food trucks, weddings, fundraising drives, and restaurants.

NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams recently featured the tasty gourmet popcorn trend, calling the booming business “bursting.”  CBS News had a piece in February, “Popcorn, the snack that saved the movies” and featured Gold Medal equipment popping up profits.

Countless other food industry sources, media outlets, bloggers, and social networking sites have been raving about the the rich buttery flavor of classic caramel corn, white cheddar truffle, raspberry, and gourmet toppings like real gold.

Popcorn, in general, also has appealing health benefits. It’s one of the reasons Publicis Consultants USA and other trend analysis groups called popcorn a 2012 Food Trend. Studies have shown fiber-rich popcorn has higher levels of healthy antioxidants than some fruits and vegetables.

Popcorn is “the perfect snack food,” Joe Vinson, PhD, professor of chemistry at the University of Scranton, said. His study found popcorn is the only snack that is 100% unprocessed whole grain, and the average person only eats about half a serving of whole grains a day.

Before the passion for popcorn reached fever pitch, Americans consumed 16 billion quarts of popcorn each year. Imagine what the records will show now as they re-discover the classic crunch of caramel or cheddar cheese. Or tempt their taste buds with new flavor combinations.

Reinventing Flavor Boundaries

May 21, 2013

Think you know cotton candy? Wait until you taste this.

Gold Medal has been the leader in patented cotton candy revolutions for 62 years. Now, it’s done it again with four new flavors that melt in your mouth: Bacon, Chocolate Orange, Chocolate Strawberry, and Chocolate Cherry.

Bacon is not just for breakfast anymore. The new cotton candy is a savory combination of rich, smoky flavor with just the right sweet note of sugar. It’s been field tested and won rave reviews at large venues like the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Carnival. Dominic “The Midway Gourmet” Palmieri quickly sold out in a weekend and said his crowds clamored for the “lip-smacking, finger-licking cotton candy.”*

The three chocolate fruit mixes all have the sinfully decadent tastes spun into light, airy cotton candy. It’s all the flavor, but less calories and carbohydrates. They’re so good you won’t believe your taste buds.

But don’t stop there. A sweet world is waiting to be discovered thanks to Gold Medal’s numerous other profit-packed flavors—including the NEW Maple and Choc-O-Floss! .
