December Round-Up: Our Favourite Things - Cotton Candy

December's round-up celebrates the spun sugar treat that delights candy fans of all ages: Cotton Candy! National Cotton Candy Day is celebrated each year on December 7!

When was cotton candy invented?

In 1897, the spun-sugar came to be when American confectioner John C. Wharton and a dentist friend of his ― William Morrison (hmmm), created a machine to make cotton candy. It was presented at the 1904 World’s Fair. Since then, it has become incredibly popular all around the world. Cotton candy was originally called fairy floss because is was made from Floss (or Flossine) sugar.

To celebrate this cloud of utter delight, we're rounded up some fun things for cotton-candy loving kids!
