Obsession du Jour

Cotton Candy 

Cotton candy (US) or candyfloss (UK) or fairy floss (Australian English) is a form of spun sugar. Since it is mostly air, servings are large. Cotton candy is often served at fairgrounds or circusesFood coloring is used to change the natural white color. A typical serving on a stick is at least one ounce and contains about 100 to 115 calories per ounce. It is sometimes sold in bags containing several servings.
A similar confectionery is the Persian Pashmak, and the Turkish Pişmaniye, although the latter is made with flour in addition to sugar.
