The History of Cotton Candy
This nostalgic confection can be traced back to the 15th century. Introduced as "Fairy Floss" at the 1904 World's Fair, the machine-spun sugar was invented by William Morrison and John C. Wharton. A similar apparatus was constructed and patented by Joseph Lascaux in 1921, during which time cotton candy got its name.
How's Cotton Candy Made?
Cotton candy is made by heating up sugar and spinning it into fine threads. Flavor and color is added by many manufacturers. The airy sweet is then collected and placed on a cardboard funnel to hand out. It can also be put into bags or containers. Parade Cotton Candy comes in convenient plastic tubs.
What Are Fun Ways to Eat Parade Cotton Candy?
Besides eating cotton candy as is, it can also be used as an ingredient or decoration. Place some on top of cookies, cupcakes or pudding to create unique, delectable snacks. Add this confection to the center of doughnuts or as a tasty replacement to marshmallows in s'mores. Use it in ice cream, frozen yogurt, fudge and other desserts. This candy can even be placed in drinks, such as floats and cocktails.
