It’s National Cotton Candy Day! From the sweet, sugary taste to
the soft, fluffy texture that melts in your mouth, what's not to love
about cotton candy? William Morrison and John C. Warton invented cotton
candy in 1897, but didn’t introduce it to the public until the 1904
World’s Fair in St. Louis. It was an instant success and sold for 25
cents, half the cost of the admission to the event!
Did you know that cotton candy was originally called "fairy floss”?
It was renamed in 1920. Today in Greece, Israel, and India, it is often
referred to as "old woman's hair!”
Although cotton candy is most commonly consumed at outdoor fairs and
festivals, you may be able to pick up some delicious cotton candy at
your local grocery store to enjoy on National Cotton Candy Day!
Happy Cotton Candy Day! I have always loved this treat!
