From sultry evenings walking by the rides at the county fair pulling off those pieces of spun sugar, cotton candy puts a smile on your face. Cotton candy has been fair food ever since 1904 when it debuted at the World’s Fair. At the time it retailed for 25 cents, which would be about $7.50 today. Invented by an unlikely duo of a dentist and a confectioner in the late 1890′s, the iconic candy was originally introduced to the world as “fairy floss.” The new and improved name of cotton candy was substituted for its grand release at the World’s Fair.
It looks great on display in classic pink, and this fun cotton candy kit is heating up, so you’d better get this party started.
