Cotton Candy is one of those foods that shouldn’t be food. I don’t know how someone discovered you could take sugar and turn it into the stuff that comes out of a mummy’s mouth after it finally wakes up over thousands of years, but they did.
William Morrison and John C. Warton created the concoction with a special machine they made and debuted the treat at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904. Back then, it was called “Fairy Floss”, but it’s probably better it’s name was changed because flossing your teeth with pure sugar probably isn’t the best idea for your long-term dental health.
Because the fair staple is basically sugar, you can make it any color you want by adding food dye. Some people even get silly with it and add flavoring, like this sour cotton candy.
When people exploit the food and get creative, the results are absolutely stunning pieces of food art that are sure to get your kids running circles around you within seconds. Just pray that sugar crash comes sooner than later.
