National Cotton Candy Day

Hi, and happy National Cotton Candy Day! It seems weird to celebrate Cotton Candy Day in December when we usually associate cotton candy with summertime and amusement parks, and in fact, according to Mahalo.com, there are actually two National Cotton Candy Days ~ Dec. 7th and July 31st. Maybe to the creator of the December 7th observance, cotton candy reminded them of mounds of freshly fallen, soft, billowy snow. Makes sense to me.

In case you missed it, here is a link to my cotton candy post from National Candy Month last June. You should find everything you need to know about cotton candy there.

But where do you buy Cotton Candy in December? Right now, our local grocery store is selling Charms brand Fluffy Stuff Snow Balls Cotton Candy for the Christmas season. I've tried it and love it! If you can't find it in your area, you can purchase Cotton Candy online.
