You may try to eat healthy most of the time, but every once in a while, you probably just want something sweet. Plus, it's even better if you can make it yourself. Luckily, you can do just that at a candy store in North Carolina.

When you visit the Cotton Candy Factory in Belmont, North Carolina, you'll get the chance to make your own cotton candy. You actually get to spin it yourself.

Regular cotton candy flavors cost $4.50 each. They include flavors like birthday cake, bubble gum, berry blast, watermelon, strawberry and pina colada.

However, if you want to go with a more natural option, you can also choose from a wide range of organic flavors. Some of the organic options include banana, cheesecake, lemon, and mango. You can get these for only $5.

When you visit, you can decide if you want to take the cotton candy machine for a spin (get it?). It's probably easier than you would imagine, so even if you're not amazing in the kitchen, you may want to try it out.

However, if you don't want to make your cotton candy yourself, no worries. You can also pick up a stickful that has already been made for you.

One other thing you'll love about this place is that it provides employment opportunity for those who are differently-abled.

Therefore, you know you're supporting an organization that plays a helpful role in the community.

Plus, you don't want to forget that you can pick up a ton of other types of candy there too, not just cotton candy. Pick from a variety of old classics and new flavors that you may not have tried yet.

The next time you have a sweet tooth, you may just want to stop at this local candy factory and try a new sweet experience.
