Cotton Candy

This delicious dessert made of sugar and food coloring was first introduced during St. Louis World fair, in 1904 by William Morrison and John C. Wharton. It's also known as fairy floss. Unlike the olden days, today there are improved and better machines used in making candy cotton. Generally this machines are made up of a small ball in the middle where sugar is poured and food color added. This mixture is then melted through heating, after a few steps of spinning it's solidified and ready.

Traditionally, candy cotton is pink in color. However, it's also available in other colors such as orange,white, yellow, blue or purple. Carnivals,amusement parka or circus are some of the places where we can easily get it. Have you ever watched it when it's being made? If you've, then you'll agree with me its quite interesting. Actually what's funny, its as big as an adult head in the first stages when making it.

I know you don't buy that story of how it can cause cavity in your teeth, well am not saying your folks are wrong but it's not as bad as some make it look. Did you know that there 130-170 calories in a can of soft drink compared to only 100 calories in candy? Well, you do the math. The most important thing is to take care of your teeth.

Generally, most of us think that cotton candy is only for children. To be honest, if you enquire from your grand parents, you would be surprised when they first tasted it's sweet taste. They might even wonder around in their mind just reminiscing of the good old days.
