Fair Fresh carnival cotton candy, at home! Cotton candy is a light, very sweet candy of threaded sugar, tinted with food coloring and twirled onto a stick. At least that's the way you get it at the State Fair. But now that same melt-in-your-mouth candy is available at home! We press a generous amount of cotton candy into a plastic container, forming a "plug" of candy that you can simply remove from the container and pull apart with your fingers. And the flavor? Maple cotton candy of course! Refrigerate upon arrival and it will last for up to two weeks.
