Did you know?

Cotton candy was originally referred to as “fairy floss” and was renamed in 1920.

Today in some countries like Greece, Israel, and India, cotton candy is sometimes called “old woman’s hair!”

Cotton candy was invented in 1897 by John C. Warton and William Morrison, but was not introduced to the public until the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904.
