December 7th is when we nationally celebrate one of our old-time favorites – cotton candy! For over 100 years, cotton candy has been a fair favorite. It was first sold to the world at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904, but wasn’t named “cotton candy” until around 1920. In England, it is known as “candy floss”.
Cotton candy is made from finely-granulated sugar that is heated and then spun into slim threads. This process is what creates the candy’s famous feathery texture, making it melt in your mouth!
At Blair Candy, we don’t only carry classic cotton candy, but you’ll also find cotton candy bubblegum and cotton candy lollipops! Shop for fun variations of your favorite treats today at your go-to supersize candy store!
