My name is Chris Dodge and I live right here in the great state of Tennessee. My family and I are full adventurers filled with passion to see the amazing things our state has to offer. We are avid hikers and have explored many different places in Tennessee and beyond but we are always thankful to be living in such a glorious state.
When people think of what Tennessee is famous for, one of the first things that might come to mind is the thriving music scene. Spanning across several genres and boasting some pretty impressive individuals, we certainly have a big musical history and culture. That’s not the only feather in our state’s cap, however. There is another feather that is small, fluffy, and edible that has its roots in the Volunteer State. The first cotton candy machine was made right here in Tennessee, and the inventor was none other than a dentist. It’s funny how life works sometimes.
Sometimes cotton candy can be really hard to come by, many times you have to settle for a sealed bag and it just doesn’t hit the same. Luckily for us, not far from where the first cotton candy machine was invented, you can get works of fluffy cotton candy art. Puffy Cotton Candy has taken what Mr. Morrison started and crafted it into a wonderful masterpiece you must see. Make sure to head to Franklin, Tennessee, to see what all the hype is about!
