candyfloss poem

by ~maddog4uk

candyfloss, pure sugar
soft as a lover
and sweet like chocolate
raises the mood like a rocket
as colorful as the rainbow
or as simple as pure snow
no matter what, its enjoyed
even though you can be annoyed
upon the rain falling
the sugar ball starts calling
as it slowing dissolves away
a sudden and sticky decay

but the feel on your tongue
the warm sugar clung
feeling so young and free
I know you agree

Ever wondered how ?


-make doll fairy floss :

A history of Candy Floss:

Cotton candy (U.S.) or candyfloss (UK, Ireland, New Zealand and South Africa)
or fairy floss (Australia) is a form of spun sugar.

Since it is mostly air, servings are large.
Cotton candy is often served at fairgrounds or circuses.
Food coloring is used to change the natural white color.

Cotton candy was first recorded around Mid-18th Century.
At that time, spun sugar was an expensive, labor-intensive endeavor and was not generally available to the average person.
Machine-spun cotton candy was invented in 1897 by William Morrison and John C. Wharton
and first introduced to a wide audience at the 1904 World's Fair as
"Fairy Floss"



The United States celebrates National Cotton Candy Day on December 7

Cotton candy contains only one ingredient: sugar

Cotton candy was actually a popular trend in Italy that began in the 1400's.

The old fashioned way of making cotton candy - or spun sugar as it was called - was to melt sugar in a pan and then use a fork to make strings of sugar over an upside down bowl. The sugar would then dry in strings and be served as a dessert. This process of making spun sugar wasn't practical in the least - especially not for mass production; it was simply too time consuming.

Cotton candy made one of its first world debuts in 1900 at the Paris Exposition
and then again in 1904 at the St. Louis World Fair.

At the St. Louis World Fair, Morrison and Wharton
sold boxes of "Fairy Floss" for 25 cents a box.

Now, back in 1904, this was quite a bit.

In fact, a box of Fairy Floss cost half the admission price to the World Fair.
Despite the somewhat high price for the sugary concoction,
the duo sold an astonishing 68,655 boxes!!

Though it was at time called spun sugar and Fairy Floss,
a new name for it emerged around 1920 in America.
The name was none other than cotton candy.
Although this is the most common name for it,
cotton candy still has a few alternative names throughout the world.
For example, it is called candy floss in the United Kingdom
and is even still called fairy floss in other parts of the world.
