Cotton Candy for Easter?

Nothing says Easter like Cotton Candy right? I didn’t make the connection right away, but the Peter Cottontail thing, which is pretty well illustrated on the bag, learned me good. This bag promises a veritable smorgasbord of color and flavor, so lets dig in shall we.

I bought this cotton candy for the package and to use as a background for the peep pictures. So of course I didn’t snap any photos of it when I pulled out this tri-color blob of sugar floss. Now on the package you see a bunch of colors, but thats a lie, it only has three colors and only two of them are edible, but its almost impossible to eat the candy without getting a taste of all three.

I could always differentiate between different flavors of cotton candy, but I never noticed that yellow cotton candy tastes like lemon. This must have been Charms idea of a clever idea. But its not. Because:

Lemons = good. Cotton candy = good. Lemon cotton candy = madness.

Wish I had thought to take a picture of these before the rotting started. They must make this stuff in the desert because as soon as I opened the bag, it started to absorb all the moisture in the room. In just a couple of hours the cotton candy had shrunk and turned to concrete. I did take a picture of this mess. Which I will leave you with to enjoy as I go clean it up.

I got a pic of this mess of candy before the Hardening see below:

  1. Wow, didn’t know about this, but this makes sense! Next Easter, this is gonna be in the basket! I will have to put a note that says to eat as soon as the bag is opened.
