Cotton candy, also known as fairy floss and candy floss, is a spun sugar confection that is commonly sold at fairs, circuses and carnivals. While some sources trace the origin of spun sugar to 15th century Italy, the first machine spun cotton candy was invented in the US in 1897 by dentist William Morrison and confectioner John C. Wharton.
It is made by heating and liquefying pre-coloured sugar, then spinning it to force it through small holes, creating the fine strands that resemble cotton. It is then sold in plastics bags or on wooden sticks, providing a sweet treat with a soft, pillowy texture that melts in the mouth.
Mathieu Teisseire Cotton Candy Syrup captures the irresistible sweetness and aroma of freshly spun cotton candy, making it the perfect addition to cocktails, mocktails, milkshakes and more.
