Cotton candy (also known as fairy floss in Australia and candy floss in the UK, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, Egypt, India and Sri Lanka) is a form of spun sugar. The confection is mostly sugar, with small amounts of either flavoring or food coloring often being added.
Cotton candy is made by heating and liquefying sugar and spinning it out through minute holes. It resolidifies in minutely thin strands of “sugar glass”. The final cotton candy contains mostly air, with a typical serving weighing around 1 ounce or 28 grams. It is often served at fairs, circuses, carnivals, and Japanese festivals, and sold on a stick or in a plastic bag
Similar light halva confections include the Indian sohan papdi and pootharekulu, the Persian pashmak, and the Turkish pişmaniye, although the latter is made with flour and water in addition to sugar. Tatar cuisine has similar flour-honey sweet sawdust talqysh-kalava. Similar sweets include Chinese dragon’s-beard candy and Korean honey skein kkul-tarae.
