Cotton Candy in the food context refers to a form of spun sugar. It is a popular confection that resembles a cotton ball in texture but is made entirely of sugar, with added colorings and flavorings. The sugar is heated until it liquefies, then spun through tiny holes where it solidifies in mid-air, creating fine sugar threads. These threads are collected and wound around a stick or cone, resulting in a fluffy, cloud-like treat. Cotton candy is a staple at fairs, carnivals, and amusement parks, beloved by both children and adults for its sweet taste and unique, airy texture.
