    Cotton Candy (in China Town)

    For a part of my childhood, I liked in UK, and every Chinese New Year, my parents would take me to China Town to celebrate. I really hated the noised and demanded to go home. So, to settle with me, my parents would buy be cotton candy. And it was one of the best (types of...

    Just Last Night!

    Bought some for my son at the local carnival last night. Only time I get to nibble the stuff! Nummy!! But like everything else, the volume in the bag keeps getting smaller, while the price value keeps going up! $3.00 here. What's it cost in your neck of the woods?

    I used to like cotton candy alot, when I was little....not anymore, though. I think it has too much sugar now, so I try not to buy it for my kids either.

    Eating Cotton Candy

    I love cotton candy!  I took my son to the fair 2yrs ago and I remember sitting and eating cotton candy with him, it made me feel like a kid again!  We were smiling and laughing and just having a good time together.  It was like the rest of the world just went away...

    Ferris Wheel

    To me, cotton candy goes hand-in-hand with carnivals. I've never much cared for cotton candy, so my friends (the sugar addicts) are usually the ones who carry around the big bags of blue and pink fluffy sugar. I've also never much cared for ferris wheels. Actually, they scare me...

    Yum!

    My favorite is maple cotton candy. It's like eating maple candy only you can hold it on a stick and share it with everyone! They sell it in the commercial building at the county fair and I love it. It makes me want summer to get here faster just thinking about it.

    Love It

    I loved when the school had carnivals or when someone would rent a cotton candy machine for a party and we got to make it our self. I would be covered in sugar from head to toe and totally sticky and loved it!

    Whenever I go to the beach, the visit is never complete until I get some soft serve and cotton candy. I have to walk something like a quarter mile to get the cotton candy, and let me tell you, it is a horrible idea to get cotton candy for someone else and walk all that way back...

    I ate this stuff a few times

    when I was a very young child, and I liked it then. The last time I ate it was 20 years ago, when I was 9 years old. My parents took me miniature golfing & bought me a big stick of cotton candy, and I ate the whole thing. I got so sick later that night that I could not go to...
