National Cotton Candy Day – Here is a day for that yummy fluffy sugary fair treat … Cotton Candy! #CottonCandyDay #CottonCandy
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!
