Cotton Candy Making at Ciqikou, Chongqing, China

Cotton candy was always a treat that we got at the local & state fairs when I was growing up but it's not something that appeals to me now. I remember it as sickeningly sweet even then but I ate it anyway!

I enjoyed watching this street vendor create a flower shape and I can imagine children in particular would be thrilled at that added touch to this sticky treat!

I know what you mean!

Plus they make it look so easy! I know they've done it so often that they have it down pat but if I tried to make it, it would look like the pictures I've seen of spider webs spun by spiders on LSD.

Our Cotton Candy was never a art.

We were mesmerized waiting for our cotton candy

Now kids sit on the father's shoulders eating Cotton Candy and it ends up in my

hair.:wah:

WOW

I imagine people making cotton candy hours at a time notice they can do things with it.

Then comes along the artist, a person with talent, imagination.
