Cotton Candy. That sweet, whipped goodness that turns into fluff you can eat. It sounds bizarre when I say it like that, but it’s true! We all have had moments in our lives that were represented with cotton candy. For myself, it’s the small town fair that is held every year where I live since I was little. We would get cotton candy, go on rides and see friends from school that we wouldn’t normally see on the weekends. As we get older, cotton candy fades into the background as a childhood memory. Today, cotton candy is more popular than ever with it’s Instagram worthy good looks and bright colors. To help you enjoy this renewed love for cotton candy, I’ve made a list of desserts and drinks that are cotton candy flavored, so you can get back to reminiscing about your childhood while munching and sipping on some seriously delicious food.
