Bring on the Cotton Candy!

What better way to start Monday than by celebrating National Cotton Candy Day!  Do you pick the pink or the blue cotton candy at the carnival?

Did you know that the Cotton Candy frappuccino is one of the “secret” drinks you can ask for at Starbucks?  There’s a Butterbeer frappuccino, a Pokรฉmon Go frap, and even a cupcake frappuccino!  Most are made with a regular vanilla frappuccino with 4-5 added pumps of various syrups, bringing the drink to 60-70 grams of sugar, about double the amount in real cotton candy.

Cotton candy fact for the day: in England they call it candy floss.

Have a sweet day!

      I think there is more innovation to be done with cotton candy. Food truck?! Why can’t it be yellow? Or rainbow?! Plus it is 99.9% sugar, so no worries about gluten and nuts ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Another cotton candy fan here! I don’t have a preference. And I’ve actually seen it in other colors besides pink and blue, but it’s been a while. We used to have a dog that loved it too, and I remember her wrestling my husband do the floor (he was sitting) and stealing it out of his mouth!

      See, cotton candy is due for a comeback! That is so funny about your dog. If only YouTube were a thing back then you could have been famous!

    I enjoy real cotton candy, not that stuff they try to sell at stores in foil bags. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ BLECH. But the real stuff you get a carnivals and baseball games…I like all the colors. I had purple once; that and pink are my favorites. ๐Ÿ˜€

      I think we can unscientifically conclude that people who like dolls also like cotton candy! Probably because we are a fun bunch who stills listens to the inner child! ๐Ÿ™‚
