ZOET! in Hilversum
If anything is reminiscent of a traditional fairground or funfair, it’s candy floss! But is such a treat still acceptable in these times of conscious living? You can’t even check what ingredients are in it!

Not to worry – we have just the solution for you! Meet our mobile candy floss laboratory, aptly named ZOET! (Translation: SWEET!). At this high-tech food truck, you don’t pick the flavor but rather the E number. Choose one of these European Union approved food additives out of a list containing delicious names like “Splashing E130“, “Tropical E124” or “Refreshing E150d”. In a glimpse of an eye, our helpful laboratory technicians create a super fresh candy floss for you — but beware: 9 out of 10 dentists advice against this!

Pick an E number, guess the flavor 

ZOET! playfully tackles the conundrum of a growing consumer food awareness versus the unhealthy yet delicious nature of traditional fairground snacks. No matter which way you spin it, a candy floss will always remain 100% sugar. By choosing the E number, ZOET! gives consumers a playful sugar rush into the origins of our chemically processed food.

By blurring the lines between foodtruck, laboratory, fun and science, ZOET! has drawn critical acclaim across funfairs & festivals. The mobile, lightweight food truck makes for an excellent and playful addition to any festival, congress or event. It adheres to all Dutch mobile food licenses and accepts cash & PIN-payments.

The Fair Grounds:
ZOET! is part of The Fair Grounds. The Fair Grounds is an artistic project by the Dutch new media art collective DROPSTUFF MEDIA which consists of multiple independent installations where traditional amusement rides have been updated with new artistic or social narratives. The result is a truly new fairground, where every ride has been modified or enhanced and tells a surprising story in the public space: popular culture meets high tech and high art!
