In addition to all the fun rides and exhibits at state and county fairs, one of the biggest draws to these events is the food.  Whether it be salty or sweet, fair food is something difficult to resist. One of the most famous sweet snacks sold at fairs across America is cotton candy.  This fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth treat first appeared around the 19th century in Europe and was known as spun sugar.  It was difficult to make and very expensive until a machine was invented to simplify the process in 1897.  After that, the delicious confection became much more affordable and the general public was finally able to sample the sweet treat. Today, you can find cotton candy being sold in bags or on sticks at almost any fair.  The most famous colors are pink and blue, but sometimes green, purple, or yellow make an appearance, too.  In fact, some cotton candy makers have made it their mission to create artistic masterpieces out of the treat.  This includes rainbow hearts, flying saucers, and even animals! Whether child or adult, it's not easy to resist the cotton candy vendor at a fair.  Especially after a day of salty snacks like popcorn, blooming onions, and french fries.  There's no better way to finish up a day at the fair than with this light and airy treat.
