National Cotton Candy Day

The spun sugar treat we call Cotton Candy was invented centuries ago but was popularized at the 1904 Worlds fair marketed as Fairy Floss. It has been raising glucose levels ever since at carnivals, circuses and ballparks ever since. In the 1950’s a home version was introduced to send your children into sugar shock and coloring their tongues with insidious food dye. So throw caution to the wind and have record your kid’s reactions posted with #NationalCottonCandyDay today. Get them checked for diabetes tomorrow. Have fun kids!
