"It was brilliant. It was the most exhausting experience me and my husband have ever experience as a small business because we went from catering once a week at outdoor markets and private events to, 'we're going to be open seven days a week for a whole month,'" Morin said.
Wonderpuff isn't your typical pink and blue cotton candy. It's organic and vegan, which not all cotton candy is.
"We're almost like offended by the pink and blue cotton candy world because ours is very much different," Morin said, saying her husband has worked hard to come up with flavors.
Wonderpuff cotton candy is colorless, but the flavors are bold like lavender, orange, cardamom, salted caramel and mango.
"When you see Wonderpuff cotton candy, it's white. It's very basic and plain, but when you taste it and when you eat it, it's very, very potent. There are powerful, strong flavors that can almost overwhelm you at first," Morin said.

"When you taste the campfire s'more, you're tasting the sweetness of the marshmallow, but the smokiness of actual smoke. It's pretty cool," Morin said.
