Demeter - Cotton Candy 30ml

No reviews

Demeter's Cotton Candy maybe it's just sugar and maybe a bit of magic?

Cotton candy is made from sugar that is heated and spun into slim threads that look like a mass of cotton and was invented in 1897 by John Wharton, a candy maker from Nashville, Tennessee. They invented a device that heated sugar in a spinning bowl that had tiny holes in it and formed a treat originally called "Fairy Floss."

Wharton introduced it to the world at the1904 World's Fair in St. Louis and sold huge amounts of it for 25 cents a box, a lot of money back in those days. They sold about 70,000 boxes in fact. The term "cotton candy" began to be used for this treat in about 1920, but in the UK, it's still called "candy floss."
