National Cotton Candy Day is celebrated on December 07, 2024. Cotton candy , candy floss, or candyfloss, or fairy floss is a form of spun sugar. Since it comprises mostly air, a small initial quantity of sugar generates a tremendously greater final volume, causing servings to be physically large and voluminous. A typical serving on a stick is approximately 1 ounce/30 grams.
Cotton Candy is sometimes sold in bags containing several servings. Cotton candy is often served at carnivals or circuses. Food coloring can be used to change the natural white color. There are many flavors although flossine is one of the most common. A similar confectionery is the Persian Pashmak, and the Turkish Pismaniye, although the latter is made with flour and water in addition to sugar. Ngathrek Golop Lhakpa is also a Bhutanese variant, but with added Butter tea and chilli peppers. (With material from: Wikipedia)
