24 Cotton Candy Sweets

From Fluffy Carnival Desserts to Glowing Cotton Candy

— July 29, 2015 — Lifestyle
Beyond being served on a stick at a carnival, cotton candy sweets can also be enjoyed in the most unexpected ways. From fudge to french fries, cupcakes and ice cream cones, these unusual spun sugar products and recipes temp those with a sweet tooth using the most familiar comfort foods.

Beyond the sugary blue and pink varieties, cotton candy creators are also experimenting with exotic flavors like watermelon, mango, lychee and even marijuana-infused floss for those with medical conditions. Glo Cone brings even more amusement to the vibrant colors of its fairy floss by serving its sweet creations on an LED wand.

Conventional cotton candy sweets are completely reinvented as alcoholic shooters, tea-based beverages and meat-filled desserts.
