Cotton candy, in a more detailed explanation, is basically molten sugar that is immediately cooled in centrifuge as cob web–like strands accumulate along the edges of the contraption. Pretty deep, right?
A patent was filed for the first cotton candy machine in 1899 by confectioner John C. Wharton, with the help of dentist William J. Morrison. In the past, it was called fairy floss, and the Nashville-based duo sold almost 70,000 boxes. Later in 1921, a second dentist, Joseph Lascaux from New Orleans, created similar device when he coined the term cotton candy.
In China, you can buy cotton candy in the shape of a flower.
