  • National Cotton Candy Day
    December 7th – Can you believe it was a dentist that invented this sugary treat? Although spun sugar was around many decades ago, it was so labor intensive and expensive the average person could not buy it. Cotton candy as we know it nowadays was first created in 1897 when a dentist named William Morrison joined forces with a confectioner by the name of John C. Wharton. They created a machine that spun heated sugar through a screen, creating the floss-like texture.  Their invention introduced cotton candy to a wider audience at the 1904 World’s Fair as Fairy Floss. Fairgoers loved it and bought over 68,000 boxes for 25¢ a box. Read more about the history of cotton candy here: https://timefortheholidays.net/happy-national-cotton-candy-day/
