National Cotton Candy Day

This airy sugary delight usually seems to be in light blue and pink, but other colors are known. It is very popular at fairs and other amusement places. I like cotton candy! Cotton Candy is just sugar spun with flavoring & coloring. Oddly enough, a Dentist named William Morrison along with a confectioner John C. Wharton invented the machine-spun treat in 1897.

Cotton candy is a spun sugar confection that resembles cotton. It usually contains small amounts of flavoring and/or food coloring. The candy is made by heating and liquefying sugar, spinning it centrifugally through minute holes — and finally allowing the sugar to rapidly cool and re-solidify into fine strands.

WikiPedia

Cotton Candy Day is held annually on July 31 and December 7. Yes, twice a year!

I like me some air sugar treat of cotton candy! It comes in many colors and flavors. Usually you think of pink and a light blue for its color. That makes me want to have some!

Cotton Candy is usually a staple food for fairs.
